CM Punk says he would have squashed Stone Cold Steve Austin in the WWE. A feud was hinted between the two back in 2013/14.
Stone Cold Steve Austin is arguably the greatest WWE Wrestler of all time. He was the centrepiece of WWE’s most successful period; The Attitude Era. Former WWE star CM Punk however, thinks a match between them would have been a one sided affair in his favor.
Punk himself was one of WWE’s most influential stars. At his peak, he was comparable to golden goose John Cena in the pecking order. In fact, a feud between the two was teased back in 2013/14. A fan brought that up on social media and asked whether it would have been the greatest match of all time. Punk had a rather amusing answer to the question.

Stone Cold was the WWE’s trump card during the Monday Night Wars against WCW. Unfortunately, a series of injuries cut his WWE Career short. CM Punk on the other hand played the role of Cena’s foil to perfection. Together, they gave the WWE their first Meltzer rated 5 star match of the current millennium.
The aforementioned feud that was hinted between the two was when Punk was the WWE Champion. Unfortunately, it was merely a marketing gimmick to promote the WWE 2K13 game and nothing came off it.
