WWE WrestleMania 29: Should Steve Austin Make an Appearance in New Jersey?

David LevinSenior Writer IIMarch 25, 2013


What's left for CM Punk to accomplish?

He has won multiple world titles, beaten some of the greatest of all time and created controversy whenever he has decided to speak his mind.

And if that isn't enough, he knows how to drop a bomb on the WWE Universe every now and then. Now, with maybe his biggest and greatest challenge ahead of him in two weeks against The Undertaker, what is left for the Second City Saint to accomplish?

Who knows, but could his next challenge involve Stone Cold Steve Austin? 

For the longest time, we have discussed the potential confrontation between the two anti-heroes of the WWE, which would leave all of us as giddy as a schoolgirl on prom night. And having him show up in New Jersey would assuredly make the WWE faithful talk, guess and hope there is a match on the horizon for the two.

Please understand there is no report out that this could happen. But what if SCSA showed up at WrestleMania? What if this becomes the precursor to the SummerSlam match between the two before the end of the year?

What if something like this happens? What if Punk does beat Undertaker? The streak would be over. The drama would fade and the WWE would need something to hang its hat on going into WrestleMania 30 in New Orleans.

That would certainly be a crazy kind of time heading into the Big Easy. It would also be an ideal situation to usher in a new focal point of the WWE's greatest pay-per-view event. Above everything else, it would sell more readily than the possibility of Rock/Cena III.

Steve Austin has never been slight on words and never one to keep his mouth shut. Can you imagine the two fighting for mic time? The jousting verbally would be better than Roddy Piper and Ric Flair of the 1970s.

The WWE needs to plan for something after Undertaker takes his final walk back to the locker room. This could be the year. After injuries, beatings and advancing age, there will come a time when someone will beat him. Punk may provide the greatest chance to do that.

If he does, there will be a new focal point for wrestling's crown jewel. CM Punk should be the center of it. All he will need is a new opponent. Could the "Rattlesnake" be the one to answer the call?
