As WrestleMania edges closer the number of rumours continue to increase, the latest one surrounding Stone Cold Steve Austin and a potential face-off with CM Punk.

Right now, Stone Cold Steve Austin has been confirmed by the WWE to appear at WrestleMania XXX but the role he will play hasn't been disclosed just yet; instead Austin told TMZ Sport that the fans will have to tune in to the event to see what he will be doing.

Stone Cold Steve Austin hasn't been in the WWE for three years now, when he last appeared he officiated the match between Michael Cole and Jerry 'The King' Lawler before hitting a number of Stunners from Jack Swagger to Booker T and Josh Mathews.

A lot can change in three years but there is no way Austin will be travelling across the country to appear in a minor role on the thirtieth anniversary of the historic event; you can expect him to have a bigger or more important segment; one which could potentially involve CM Punk.

WrestleZone.com have reportedly learned from WWE sources that a segment had been pitched to both Stone Cold Steve Austin and CM Punk; who walked out on the WWE the night after the Royal Rumble earlier this year.

The rumoured segment is based around its ending, where Stone Cold Steve Austin would end up hitting a Stone Cold Stunner on CM Punk which would evidently begin the feud and set up a match at WrestleMania XXXI between the pair.

They have also claimed that there is no word on whether either of the superstars have agreed to this or not and should merely be treated as a rumour which is typical around WrestleMania season.

CM Punk was spotted at an 'Against Me!' concert in Illinois on Friday night, contrary to reports that CM Punk travelled with his fiancée and Divas Champion AJ Lee to New Orleans; of course Punk can and might still travel to New Orleans in time for WrestleMania XXX as he won't be competing in any match.

Fans have their own theories as to what might occur with CM Punk but it remains to be seen whether WrestleZone's reports come to fruition come WrestleMania XXX. 

A match between the two would be a brilliant spectacle as Austin and Punk stand for two completely different things, fans were excited for The Rock taking on John Cena and this is a match parallel to that.

CM Punk and Stone Cold Steve Austin are no strangers to each one another, click on the video above to watch CM Punk confront Stone Cold Steve Austin during Punk's time as the leader of The New Nexus.
