In this month’s edition of the free online magazine The Wrestling Press, WWE Hall of Famer “Stone Cold” Steve Austin discusses his acting career and ideal opponent if he were to return to WWE’s squared circle.

Here’s what he had to say:

On wrestling CM Punk: “So yeah I hear the stories, if the stars aligned and all things worked out to benefit us all I’d say that he is the guy I’d pick to face. I could get another match out of this carcass of mine sure.”

On filming a comedy: “Comedy, no one has asked really, I have a script in progress, kind of a spoof of the action genre and I do want to do that.”

On his new DVD: “Looking back like that lets you see things you would change if you could go back. Early in my career I was in Ric Flair mode… I was really treading water for a time.”

On Tough Enough 2: “I hear there will be a second series, I’d say there’s a 95% chance of it right now. I really did enjoy doing it.”

TWP also has interviews with Bobby Roode and Japanese sensation Dick Togo. As well as many other original features, such as; Survivor Series, the forgotten PPV – Home Town Pride (how lack of territories have killed the fans passion) – Star Ratings debate – Super Dragon returns to PWG – The Impact of DG:UK – First ever SMASH champion (Exclusive!) – and much, much more. The magazine is available here.

    @ Bit T, thanks…

    That’s funny. I thought Austin’s acting WAS a spoof on the action genre.

    Treading water is similar to keeping your head above water. He wasn’t really doing anything that was benefiting his career, he just did enough to keep his job. Using the same water analogy, he was walking on water at the end of his career.

    what does he mean by “I was really treading water for a time”, dont understand what it means…

    I thought Austin did a great job on Tough Enough. Hope he comes back.
