Steve Austin Talks CM Punk Signing With UFC, Gap Between Punk And Vince McMahon

The past two weeks have by far been the biggest in wrestling podcast history, and Stone Cold Steve Austin capped that period by posting his recent Vince McMahon interview on Podcast One.

This wasn't exactly a straight port of his WWE Network interview with McMahon though, as Austin shared his thoughts about CM Punk joining the UFC. Austin's thoughts ran shortly before the interview with McMahon.

"I think he rolls with some guys and it's a very big passion of his. I wish him all the luck in the world, and I know they'll do a hell of a big buyrate," Austin said of the fellow former WWE Champion making the move to the Octagon.

"Match him up with someone his skill level, it's hard to gauge what his skill level is though," Austin said about ideas for a potential first opponent.

Austin had hoped that WWE and Punk would work together, saying the WWE needed someone to play the role that Jim Ross played in his return to WWE

"I talked about maybe bridging the gap with CM Punk and Vince, and then he goes and does the deal with UFC. It would appear to me that they're way further apart than I thought they were. I knew things were bad and I hadn't talked to CM Punk, so it's going to be interesting," Austin said.
