Was saying you stand out more in a stale product, though. There's been plenty of hot stars came along over the last few years that didnt do anything for business. I remember saying it months ago, Austin vs Triple H, The Undertaker, John Cena and the likes of them would draw huge for me. Its such a compelling return, you need the right opponent to exploit his value as a returning star. If I hadnt seen wrestling in years and I drive past the city centre and a billboard with Steve Austin's bald head next to the Undertaker or John Cena or Triple H or even someone like Batista was up there, I'd stop the car to see the ordering information. The night after Punk won the belt and was at that baseball game with the belt, the commentators took the piss out of him. The lead announcer said "He's the heavyweight champion?" Punk's got Jericho syndrome. He's good a good look, but not a special look. He's not a midget, but he's not got the Bret Hart/Shawn Michaels athletic body to hide the fact. The size of Triple H compared to him is staggering. If his match with Triple H bombs, how many people in Titan Towers are going to put the blame on Triple H? Austin's opponent is Austin's shout. Of course it isnt. Austin's opponent is who they want to see him draw the most money with. He's not desperate to come back. They'd approach him with an idea for a match and if they offered him a match with his best friend the Undertaker, I'm sure he wouldnt complain. Matters little, because I cant see them wasting Austin's return on the night the Rock comes back. It would be like giving it away for free, because chances are, the ones paying for it are the ones who'd like to buy Austin's return on a seperate show.
