Sports Entertainment Scoops is reporting that CM Punk has officially taken shots at the rattlesnake himself Stone Cold Steve Austin. The report goes as follows:

“Nexus leader CM Punk and WWE Hall of Famer “Stone Cold” Steve Austin had a strong exchange of words on Twitter on Wednesday, with Punk challenging Austin to a fight.

It all started when Paul Heyman’s site The Heyman Hustle posted a fantasy matchup between Austin and Punk as part of their promotion of the WWE All Stars video game, which came out yesterday from THQ.

In a follow up to the story, Punk tweeted the following:

“I like how THQ acts like they don’t know what would happen if @steveaustinBSR and I were to lock horns. Everybody knows. SXE > Beer.”

Punk followed up with: GTS > stunner.

Within 3 minutes, Punk’s tweet earned over a hundred re-tweets. It was trending throughout North America within two hours. It trended globally this morning.

Austin replied to punk – and says he’s got a can a whoop ass with Punk’s name on it:

@CMPunk alright Punk…you just crossed the line…i’ll be seeing your ass in Atlanta.

@CMPunk Alright son…I’m about to get off this treadmill and RUN to Atlanta..bringing some extra cans of Whoop Ass!!! YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!

@CMPunk What are you doing son, asking for advice/lessons etc.? I’ll give your pierced lipped ass a couple lessons when I see you. Out.

The Heyman Hustle site has a badass gallery of pictures featuring the fantasy matchup of Austin vs. Punk that started this whole business”

Let me just say that if Austin could still wrestle, I guarantee this would be a feud as soon as possible, and it wouldn’t take a month to build up like the Rock/Cena angle has. A showdown between these two would cause fireworks! As a matter of fact they’d be the fireworks! That’s how hot this matchup would really be. Sadly, this is going to have to be a video game match up only because I don’t expect Austin to make some Jordan-esque like comeback just to face off against the younger generation.

This could also just be a joke or a little feud that won’t turn into anything and will be forgotten easily. In fact I could see stuff like this happening a couple more times with other guys as WWE All-Stars is definitely a past vs. present type of game. It's like having a NBA or NFL game with legends vs. current players. Tell me someone wouldn't have something to say about that. Shoot maybe even Hogan can use that as his way back into the WWE!
