CM Punk Says His Match At MITB Could Have Been Better; Austin Isn't Returning At Wrestlemania XXVIII


Jon Robertson has a new Q&A online with CM Punk to promote WWE '12. In it, Punk says Steve Austin isn't going to work Wrestlemania XXVIII next year because The Rock is headlining. He also confesses he hasn't watched his match at Money in the Bank but felt it wasn't as good as he could have made it. Below is an excerpt:

Jon Robinson: Looking back at your match at Money in the Bank, is that your favorite match that you've been a part of?

CM Punk:I don't know, I haven't watched it. I did live it, but I haven't watched it because I don't think it was as good as I could've made it. I'm my own worst critic, so I don't know, but I had a lot of fun. I can recall certain parts of that match and just having fun. I saw [Colt] Cabana and Ace [Steel] in the front row and high-fiving them, and my little sister was sitting by them, so that was a blast. We definitely did something special that night.

Jon Robinson: Looking ahead to Wrestlemania, there's Rock versus John Cena, but I'd actually rather see Austin versus Punk. Will we ever get a CM Punk versus Steve Austin main event?

CM Punk:I would rather see Austin/Punk, too. I would love to poll everybody who is going to order Wrestlemania and ask them, what would you rather see: Would you rather see Cena/Rock or Stone Cold/CM Punk? I'm biased, obviously, but I think we'd have a landslide victory. It's up to Steve, really, but he's certainly not going to do it this year. Honestly, if Steve Austin comes back to wrestling, he should be the main event of Wrestlemania, but he can't right now, because Dwayne is. I think Dwayne would get a little bit hurt if Steve took his Mania spot, but then at least Dwayne would understand how the rest of us feel. So I know that's not going to happen this year, but I would love for it to happen next year. I don't want to say it's a goal of mine, but it's definitely something that would be challenging and fun to do. I think Austin was the best worker for many, many, many, many, many years, and that's even pre-Stone Cold. "Stunning" Steve Austin was amazing.
