Austin’s Top Choice for a WWE Return Match, News on WrestleMania 28 Ticket Sales

– As noted before, WWE’s WrestleMania 28 has topped 43,500 tickets sold. A lot of these are scalpers. One secondary market,, had 7,000 tickets for sale as of yesterday and they’re not the only market. A lot of WrestleMania ticket sales so far have been advance sales with people buying them to sell later as opposed to true fan demand.

– People within WWE are openly talking about Brock Lesnar vs. Steve Austin. While Austin is not in the plans for WrestleMania 28, it’s said that he is open to wrestling CM Punk in the future if Punk is a top heel but his number one choice for a return match would be against Lesnar.

    LOL at the comments about Lesnar would kill Austin, You do know wrestling is scripted right? And even if it wasnt remember Lesnar cant handle real pain, he just quites. Failed at football, Couldnt handle wrestling and went home, failed at football again, Started fighting in the octagon where at first he was very good and now he is mostly injured or sick. In short Lesnar is an overgrown p*ssy.

    LOL… Ignore my last comment… This is what I meant to say.

    Lesnar is just another non wrestling a**hole who thinks they can just waltz back in and take the main event from punk. Punk vs. Austin or just stay home stone cold.

    Just another non wrestling a**hole who thinks they can just waltz back in and take the main event from punk. Punk vs. Taker or just stay home stone cold.

    The fucking scalpers need to stop! This is ridiculous!

    To have a big show headlined by two guys who don’t travel with the company full-time sounds like a bad idea doesn’t it???

  • Wellsy

    They’d have to have some pretty good build up for Austin/Lesnar to work.
    Punk as a heel hopefully won’t happen for a while. I’m gutted he’s WWE Champion as I wanted him to win the Rumble, but there’s still chance for them to take it off him (again!).

    I’d love to see Punk/Austin and Taker/Lesnar Wrestlemania 29.

    lesnar will kill austin, i could buy austin stunning lesnar , like he did with matches against undertaker

  • D2K

    Austin/Lesnar is a bad idea for many obvious reasons. CM Punk would be the best choice for Austin also for many obvious reasons. But like Punk said, Austin isn’t gonna take a backseat to Rock/Cena. When Austin wrestles again it should be THE main event and CM Punk should be a heel. Maybe 2013 Wrestlemania. If they can build Rock/Cena for a year they can do the same with Austin/Punk.

  • Effmenow

    Lesnar is too powerful for Austin especially since Austin cant take that many hard bumps anymore. Punk vs. Austin would be the better match.

  • Omar

    Has everyone forgot the dud that was goldberg vs lesnar?

  • venom

    Austin vs Punk at mania 28, Austin vs Lesnar at mania 29.

    It would seem a bit weird if a WWE PPV was headlined by two non-wrestlers…
