A few years ago there a lot of speculation surrounding the possibility of a feud between Stone Cold Steve Austin and CM Punk, at one stage it seemed inevitable given that Punk was the modern-day version of Austin, it seemed likely that Austin would come out of retirement and these two would have a match at WrestleMania.
However, Dave Meltzer was asked on the most recent edition of Wrestling Observer Radio if WWE was ever planning a CM Punk vs. Steve Austin match. Meltzer responded with the following…
"No. It was not close at all. It was never going to happen."
