In the latest installment of “Stone Cold” Steve Austin’s podcast, Austin shares his thoughts about CM Punk making the decision to joinin the UFC.
“I think he rolls with some guys and it’s a very big passion of his. I wish him all the luck in the world, and I know they’ll do a hell of a big buyrate,” Austin said of the former WWE Superstar making the move to the Octagon.
“Match him up with someone his skill level, it’s hard to gauge what his skill level is though,” Austin said about ideas for a potential first opponent.
Austin then talked about how he hoped WWE and Punk would have worked together, “I talked about maybe bridging the gap with CM Punk and Vince, and then he goes and does the deal with UFC. It would appear to me that they’re way further apart than I thought they were. I knew things were bad and I hadn’t talked to CM Punk, so it’s going to be interesting,” Austin said.
