Steve Austin talked about many interesting topics in an interview for the SI Media podcast. CM Punk – Aew is a topic that has been going on for several months. Many are wondering what will happen in the whole story and if there is a chance for CM Punk.
Austin revealed that he had exchanged several messages with CM Punk. He has a great opinion of him. “I just sent a message to Punk yesterday and we were just talking about his dog. He posted a picture of his dog and I sent him a message.
I heard through the grapevine that he pulled his tricep. I said, ‘Did you tear your tricep?’, and he confirmed that he had. I don’t know where he is on the healing process. I don’t know the ins and outs or the behind the scenes stuff.
We own a TV and we stream shows every night, but I don’t watch TV. I don’t watch any shows. What I do keep up with wrestling is on social media. I don’t know if there’s a soap opera behind Punk. I think he’s a hellacious talent.
I don’t know the trouble or the ongoings of which you speak, so I can’t answer that question. That’s an honest response because I don’t know”. - he said, as quoted by pwmania.com
Steve Austin on Vince McMahon selling WWE
Austin also talked about the sale of WWE by Vince McMahon.
Steve isn't particularly surprised by that. It also seems that he expected it to come to that. The most important thing is that Triple H and the rest of the team will stay. Their experience is crucial. “I wasn’t shocked at all.
It’s been in the grapevine and it happened and it kind of made sense. UFC did it, so why not WWE? Triple H went out there and cut that promo, saying that they’re not going anywhere, meaning the people that are running WWE.
I think it needs to come from a wrestling minded, family type thing or those key players. That’s a tricky business. Not everybody with a television background walks into the pro wrestling industry or the sports entertainment industry, whatever they want to call it, and can produce great results, so you keep the people running it because they know their fan base probably as good as anyone or better than anybody.
I remember when Vince took the company public years ago. I asked him, I said, ‘Vince, why do you want to do this?’ He said, ‘Steve, to legitimize the business.’”
