Seems over the past week some news regarding one of the proposed main events for WrestleMania 29 has surfaced. Namely, a statement made by one "Stone Cold" Steve Austin that Punk might not be the guy to face him due to a lack of intensity.
Now, as I would expect of any superstars fans, people have jumped to the defense of the "Voice of the Voiceless," and have made some good arguments on his behalf. Punk's fall from his height of popularity this Summer cannot be placed solely on himself but, to an extent, on WWE Creative.
However, the past is the past. The fact is Punk isn't the same guy he was all those months ago when he cut that now classic, cross-legged promo and declared himself "The Best Wrestler in The World."
With that thought, I think there's actually a better alternative for the Austin/Punk match, and that alternative is Austin vs. Orton.
Now, I'm sure plenty of people will disagree. There are plenty of guys that would make good opponents for Austin in the eyes of many. Not including CM Punk, I've seen the names Brock Lesnar, The Undertaker, Daniel Bryan, and John Cena all dropped to face Austin, yet there is almost no mention of "The Apex Predator of the WWE."
So, with that in mind, I'll be taking a look at the reasons why Randy Orton would make the best choice to face "Stone Cold" at Mania.
