Steve Austin refused to rule out possibly working a match at Wrestlemania XXX next year in a new interview with Dave Lagreca and Doug Mortman on the "Busted Open" radio show. Below is a lengthy excerpt the show sent out:

If he's healthy enough to work:

"Oh I'm healthy enough. My knees coming around just fine, it's better than it's ever been because I've been doing my do diligence on my rehab. I've got two new ligaments. Everything else is pain free. I'm still in shape been working out harder than I've ever worked out. But here's the deal. When you're gonna try to commit to do a Wrestlemania 30, you're looking really at, at least a two to three month commitment, if not four. So you know you're talking about, taking everything else of the table. I can still do my podcast but take everything else off the table and focus specifically on that task. To do it the way I would do it, to do it the way Stone Cold Steve Austin would do it, at a 120 percent. Because to go out there and to try to perform at 85-90 percent because you didn't prep enough. That would be bogus, that would be BS that would be letting the crowd down. And that would be representing the Stone Cold Steve Austin that I know and love to a degree that is not acceptable. So once you throw a legitimate, real deal offer down on the table and say let's talk, then we'll talk. But until then, conjecture."

If he's up for the challenge:

"Well if I'm gonna agree to the challenge, accept it and go into it because I want to and the business makes sense, then absolutely."

If CM Punk vs. Steve Austin could be an all-time great match:

"Oh it definitely could. It brings a lot to the table from a verbal standpoint with his well thought out promos, the way in which he conducts his business. I like his product in the ring. I like to see him turn it up more in the mainstream. I like to see a little more physicality, laying in stuff a little more. I like to see him be a little bit more aggressive. That's just off the top of my head. Other than that, I like everything about the cat."

How big it would be if he actually worked Wrestlemania XXX in New Orleans:

"Well I'm not going to put the cart in front of the horse. I'm not lobbying for a match. If the starts lined up, then it would happen, but it's going to take a lot for those stars to line up. No sense in beating a dead horse. To think about it is one thing, to actually go out, come to terms and go through the business prep and actually accomplish a match, it's a whole different ballgame and a major process."
