THQ and WWE are continuing a brilliant marketing campaign today with the official release of a video featuring Stone Cold Steve Austin and CM Punk. The idea is to get you hyped over matching them up in WWE 13 yet most will come away salivating over a potential WrestleMania match.
THQ sent over the video today with a short blurb. Here is a piece of the press release.
“While the interview begins simply enough, with each WWE icon speaking about his career and the “Attitude Era,” things start getting tense when the discussion circles around talk of a “dream match” between the two. It’s the biggest Superstar of the “Attitude Era” – and possibly of all time – and arguably today’s hottest commodity in WWE, addressing one of the biggest questions in entertainment today: What would happen if CM Punk and Stone Cold Steve Austin met in a WWE ring?”
One of the highlights of the video is Punk calling Austin out on staring at the WWE championship. This is really great stuff here! This was my favorite segment in the video which saw Punk retort how he wants nothing of Austin’s as Austin gives Punk the stare of death.
The theme of this video is “What if?” What if the WWE actually made Steve Austin vs. CM Punk for one of the upcoming WrestleMania events? I can’t imagine anyone walking away from this thinking that the match and build up wouldn’t be anything short of incredible.
Oh and yeah, Austin’s still got it!
