The Start of Something Grand?
Steve Austin and CM Punk have teased a rivalry over Twitter for a little over half-a-year now. It was getting to the point where I didn't think we'd see anything come to fruition on camera, but last night, we got the above-embedded teaser. It's classic, starting with Austin's "What's up, Punk?" intro, almost like he meant to mimic that great leporine performer, Bugs Bunny. What followed was probably the best thing to happen on RAW last night.
I have to wonder though, am I getting my hopes up artificially? This isn't really beckoning to the question of whether Punk sticks around or not1, but any kind of build really is just blue-balls if there's no match here. Punk can go, Lord knows Punk can go with the best of them. But Austin? Even if he's healed enough from the injuries that put him out of wrestling in the first place, does he have the desire? Or is he just content to deliver stunners, drink beers and pop in every once in awhile to remind us why we love him in the first place?
I don't know, but hey, it's fun to dream, right?
