CM Punk vs Stone Cold Steve Austin match rumored for Wrestlemania XXX

According to an Apr. 4 report from Fansided, Stone Cold Steve Austin says he wants a WWE bout with CM Punk.

I could get more out of that guy than anybody else walking Planet Earth. He could have that ultimate ‘Come to Jesus’ meeting with me. Punk’s been around for a long time and he’s a smart guy, but he never stepped into a damn squared circle with the intensity of a guy like Stone Cold Steve Austin.

The interesting thing about Austin's comment about Punk is that he already admitted he will be in attendance at Wrestlemania XXX this weekend in New Orleans.

Austin hasn't yet revealed what he'll be doing at Wrestlemania XXX, and he appears to be keeping it a secret until showtime.

CagesideSeats.com also reports that Punk may be on hand at Wrestlemania XXX. Could Punk and Austin meet inside the WWE ring?

Time will tell how the situation plays out, but it's just a rumor at this point in time. In all likelihood, Punk and Austin will not be duking it out with each other.

However, Austin is expected to be part of the show in some other capacity. Word on the street is that Austin will be getting involved in either the Batista vs Randy Orton match, or possibly even the Brock Lesnar vs The Undertaker bout.

Austin is expected to serve as a special guest referee during the show. As for Punk, he was spotted this week in Illinois, so there's no confirmation of him being in New Orleans for Wrestlemania XXX.

If Punk was to go toe-to-toe with Austin, the WWE would likely go to extensive lengths to keep it a secret until showtime.
