Steve Austin on Punk, AEW Competing with WWE | News


WWE legend Stone Cold Steve Austin spoke about CM Punk returning to WWE for Backstage on the State of Combat podcast with Brian Campbell. He also discussed the competition between WWE and AEW. Highlights below are from Wrestling Inc.

Austin on CM Punks return to WWE Backstage-

“I don’t know if it leads to anything more. I guess, speculation to be determined, we will find out.”

“Just the fact that he returned to be doing business with WWE I love because I know they split up on bad terms and now they are back in business together, CM Punk was a lights-out pro wrestler; great promos, great work, great talent, so to have him back into the fold obviously they ironed whatever they needed to iron out and both sides are happy.

“It’s great to have CM Punk back in the pro wrestling/sports entertainment business. I think it’s a breath of fresh air because the guy brings in a great perspective, great insights, great opinion on all things sports entertainment.”

On the competition between WWE and AEW-

“I believe in competition, I think competition is outstanding and I loved it when we were competing in WCW. AEW is doing their own thing, so I’m not sure if you have turned on YouTube lately and checked out NWA Powerrr with that studio-style wrestling. That is pretty fresh and entertaining to see, but I love competition. I love the fact that NXT is on USA Network and not just WWE Network.

“They have their head to head thing going on which is cool. AEW is doing their thing and WWE is doing their thing and when you see kind of when the business was down a bit a few years ago and to see where it is right now with so many different shows and Tuesday’s show on Fox and the Friday Night SmackDown on Fox, I just think more guys and gals in the business getting paid than a few years ago so the fact that everybody is making money, I love it.”

The main goal of our events calendar is helping to sell Pro Wrestling tickets for as many promotions as we can find from around the world. Each event has ticket links, venue info, date and time. But some events have a lot more, and are basically event previews. It depends on the info available at the time we post the event. The other goal is keeping fans up to date on events, as best we can. We can’t possibly get EVERY Wrestling event, but you’ll see we have more then most anyone else. Recently we’ve added Event Reminders for when certain shows will be airing. We do our best to maintain around 200 upcoming pro wrestling events at all times. We have already posted over 2500 events since we started this in late 2018. Events from the largest promotions in the world to small Indie promotions. We started with US & Canadian promotions but have recently been adding more from around the world. Some days have 1-3 events and some have over 20 on the same day so may have to click at the bottom to see more on a certain day. Also we recently made it possible for anyone to comment on these event pages. If you’re a fan who went to an event, feel free to leave a comment about it. This calendar is totally free, owned and operated by Pro Wrestling fans simply wanting to help other fans.
