Kick, stunner, repeat infinitely.

I think the kick is part of the stunner, maybe. Perhaps the second move is the Lou Thesz press. (With the ensuing punches part of the move).

I find it amusing how they talk about the Austin/Punk matchup as if it's the first time you can ever have these guys face off in a video game, however. I guess WWE '12 never happened. And you could probably do it in SvR '10 and '11, too. (I'm too lazy to look it up.)

I would have liked to see Punk go after Austin a little more aggressively in the interview, though. Saying that if they did face each other, he'd hit him with the GTS, snap his neck with the Anaconda Vise, et cetera. Go after the injured knee. You know, pragmatic heel stuff.

Well, we can't build a magical time ship to go back to those games. Plus JR said WWE13 is "without question the greatest video game in the history of technology."

Man I heard it from Regal on Cabana's AOW podcast about the lack of initiative of several current Superstars. Now Austin and even JR with the "more into video games than rising in the company" dig during this interview. Is the current roster somehow lazier than they were several years ago?

Punk missed a golden opportunity when JR said that the only thing the current roster could do better than the attitude roster was play video games. "Pass a drug test" was right there!

I'm not sure how true that would have been anyways.

The mid 90's guys all arrived when there was a vacuum at the top of the card. Hogan was gone, Savage was gone, Hart was coming and going, Michaels was coming and going. There was space to become THE guy in the company, and Austin, Rock, Foley, HHH, Taker all were able to try to claim that spot.

Since about 2005 there has been no way to move beyond a certain point. You can have a great career as someone like Edge or Batista. But with Cena as the pivot the entire company turns on, and the legends still seen as more important than anyone other than Cena currently on the roster, you can see why guys are "happy just being on tv". Guys like Sheamus, Del Rio, Orton, Mysterio are all able to make great livings as a top guy in WWE. Barring Cena being dropped into molten iron they'll never be the top guy, but oh well.

It was also a feature match in (the underrated) WWE All Stars, complete with pre-made video package.

Not only all of that, but also look at how those first guys got started in wrestling. They had to fight for their spot and fight to move up every match they had. It was in their nature to be hungry for success because the ones that weren't got weeded out early.

Now the company is full of guys that have had it hammered into them from the start that what the company says is the law. If someone tries to speak out in their own defense, they're marked as being a trouble maker and punished. Sheamus is booked to be one of the top guys in he company, but then MUST be punished when he actually has the gall to act like he's one of the top guys in the company. He showed self-confidence, and so had to be taught a lesson.

Speak out of turn before, and you might grab someone's attention. Do it now, and they look for reasons to humiliate you on tv.
