STEVE AUSTIN COMMENTS ON WHETHER HE CAN MEDICALLY WRESTLE AGAIN AND WHO HE'D WANT TO FACE

By Mike Ryker on 2012-11-13 15:46:57
WWE Hall of Famer "Stone Cold" Steve Austin joined Doug Mortman and Mike Riker on Busted Open to promote WWE 13. Here are a couple of highlights from that interview, which will be played in its entirety tomorrow between 2-4 ET on Sirius 92, XM 208 and Sports Zone on the internet.

Could he ever be medically cleared to wrestle again?

"It’s not even about being cleared. I’m 100 percent fine. Once I had my fusion done in 2000 and I went into the recovery phase and then got back in the ring, everything was fine and dandy. I was just running too hard towards the end and had a few issues. It was time to get out. Passing the physical isn’t the issue."

Is CM Punk the only guy he would come back for to wrestle?

"I think John Cena would be a guy as well. I really like John. He is the face of that company right now and he has done a hell of a job and I got a lot of respect for him. You look at a guy like Triple H, that was one of my favorite guys to work in the ring with. Such a ring general and such a pro. Just an easy night at the office. Undertaker is kind of beat to shreds, kind of like me. Those would be a few guys off the top of my head. Would it just be CM Punk? No. Is CM Punk at the top of the list? Yes!"
