MachinimaSports recently conducted an interview with CM Punk to promote the upcoming WWE '13 video game. In the interview, he discusses how he feels about being on the cover of the game, who he looks forward to playing against, and more. In the following excerpt, Punk responds to being asked if a match with "Stone Cold" Steve Austin will ever happen:
"It's not up to me. I'll fight Muhammad Ali, I'll fight Rin Tin Tin, I'll fight anybody. Steve Austin knows that. He's got a bum wheel, he said? We'll see about next year, see what's hurt or injured or what else the excuse will be come next year. I'm not a hard guy to find, I'm the WWE Champion."
Punk also weighed in on a possible future match with The Rock:
"Make no mistake about it, WWE's no joke, any Sunday I could lose this title, I could lose this title tomorrow. I don't plan on it, but I'm saying that the possibility lies within. I have to hold on to this... I have to hold on to this until The Royal Rumble so I can shut Rock up myself, because that's what I've wanted to do for years and I'm gonna get my chance... Rock, you know what's comin' for you. There's a reason why he's been silent, and it's not because he's busy shooting a movie, he knows this time he's finally bitten off more than he can chew."
