The talk began after the WWE On FOX account tweeted a graphic on a possible Punk vs. Austin match.
They wrote, “There are few bigger dream matches in @WWE history than @CMPunk vs. @steveaustinBSR… Who would’ve won if they ever locked up?”
Punk responded with a GIF of himself waving, indicating that he thinks he would’ve been the winner. Austin has not responded to the tweet as of this writing.
There had been a lot of rumors on Punk vs. Austin back when Punk was with WWE before he left in 2014, and WWE even teased the match a few times, but it was said that there was almost no chance of the match happening, and that WWE was just seeking feedback. As noted before, Punk stated at Starrcast III earlier this year that the match actually almost happened.
