Vince McMahon Doing Austin Podcast After RAW
Steve Austin will be doing a special version of his podcast following RAW on the WWE Network with Vince McMahon! Austin teased in an interview with WWE.com that he’s going to ask about the CM Punk situation:
Nothing is off limits. There’s a line that I won’t cross, but that’s for my standards — nothing that WWE has told me. There are many things I’d like to ask him. I’d like to know what’s going on with CM Punk. I’d like to know how Daniel Bryan’s health is. I’d like to know whose idea it was in Atlanta [that made me] take my ball and go home in 2002. I reacted the worst way possible, but I want to know who came up with that masterpiece of an idea. Guys like me come along very seldom in the wrestling business.

Val Venis On A Union In Wrestling
Former WWE star Val Venis says the idea of having a Union in WWE to safeguard wrestlers could bring with it a whole range of new negative problems, such as corruption and bias towards veterans:
A union in @WWE would have destroyed the passion @CMPunk had 4 the business far quicker than the company itself did. A unionized @wwe would crush talent motivation, annihilate the human spirit 2 succeed & destroy the #wwe product. There would be no @CMPunk. Sports unions morph into being all about tenure, NOT talent! This would hurt the @wwe product & destroy talents will to succeed.
