Steve Austin has said that he is physically able to wrestle and there are a few guys he'd like to face including Cena and Punk.

Wouldn't surprise me to see Austin and Punk at Wrestlania.
The foundations have been laid already.

Well it's a 1 year title reign for Punk. Sort of, as it's Survivor Series tonight but he's about 2 days short of a full 365.

Interesting that they've allowed him to hold the belt so long. Not a knock on Punk, but they've been happy enough to play pass the parcel with the title belts for ages. Maybe they've actually got the message that for a title to mean something then it needs more to win it than just getting it in a lucky bag

Glad to see Punk have such a long run with the belt. Long title runs are definitely for the better. Anyone else think the Survivor Series main event was actually really good? Liked the whole Punk & Cena taking turns against Ryback thing, before eventually teaming up. I do wonder how far they can go with Ryback though. I mean as soon as you represent him as being so superior 1 on 1 with guys like Cena & Punk, it's kinda tough to keep it going imo

Yeah, that's the trouble when you build up one of these unstoppable monster guys. That first loss can hurt. Mind you, WWE DOES seem to be protecting him some what, because even though he's lost at the last 2 ppv's neither has been a clean loss and the screwing has always come when he's been in a clear winning situation. Hopefully they can keep people interested in him up to the point they make him world champ and not screw the whole thing up like WCW did with Goldberg.

That's true, no tazers fingers crossed!

I do think that even maintaining such an unstoppable monster is difficult though. I mean where do you go after having him beat everyone without suddenly de-powering him? Those unstoppable monster good guys like Goldberg and The Ultimate Warrior sadly have a pretty poor shelf life. Ryback at least loves the business & is dedicated, so he has that going for him. I just hope he's not another flash in the pan character.

In other news so called HHH wants to bring Sting on board as his contract with TNA runs out this year. The Stinger is probably my all time fave so I'd absolutely love to see him do a year in the WWE, culminating with a fight against the Undertaker at Wrestlemania

It was Sting that got me into wrestling back in the 80's when WCW used to have a weekly show on ITV.His matches against Big Van Vader for the world title got me hooked,but he's never been interested in joining WWF/WWE before so it would probably take a lot of money for him to switch this late in his career.
