We're told Vince McMahon and Steve Austin had serious talks last week about compensation for Austin working Wrestlemania 29 next year. While they were so far apart on money just a couple months ago, one observer says it seems the two parties are getting closer.

Vince wants to do Austin vs. CM Punk at Wrestlemania next year, as do most of the officials, workers and fans. This has been the desired match for at least 16 months now, however, the sticking point has been over money. We reported here on Premium in October the company had given up on the match because Austin wanted $1.5 million and WWE was only looking to pay him in the range of $500,000. Both parties have reportedly moved closer to the center than they were in October.

With continuing uncertainty regarding The Undertaker and obvious risks of injury or suspension, we're told VInce would like to lock up his second main event. If they can't come to terms with Austin, they'll move to CM Punk vs. Undertaker.
