Here is what Austin had to say about Punk and WM30.

"I'm telling you, I'm going to stick to my prediction that CM Punk is going to make his return at WrestleMania 30 in New Orleans. I made this prediction two months ago here on the show. It's been a long time, I think he's cooled his jets, he's got some rest, and I think it's time to get back to work. I don't see him participating in a match but it would be great to see him in a run-in to establish himself, to entrench himself immediately in a memorable and just a great moment, and I would say plant himself firmly in the middle of an angle, because he would be the angle, by attacking whoever he sees fit to attack or asserting his presence rather, whatever the case may be. But I see CM Punk coming back at WrestleMania 30. Who knows if it will happen. We will know in about six short days when WrestleMania actually happens." - Steve Austin

Pro Wrestling Examiner’s Perspective: The Texas Rattlesnake is a man who has a unique insight to make this prediction, and have it not just be an internet statement with no logical behind it. Austin’s prediction also makes plenty of sense as a functional way to reinsert ‘the Best in the World’ back into the WWE mix in eye-raising scene on the biggest show of the year when he has been all but silent since leaving the company. This is still speculation but based on the source, it is very interesting to say the least. Paul Heyman who is Punk's former manager, also threw in his two cents on the situation as well. It is widely reported that Punk’s current contract with WWE is due to expire in July of this year. What do you think is going to happen with CM Punk and his WWE future?
