These two have sparked comparisons due to their rebelling against authority ideologies. Rumors have spread of a potential match up between the two but who is the better professional wrestler? The tale of the tape. Stone Cold Age : 47 Years Old. Weight : 252lb Height : 6 ft 2 in Signature maneuver : Stone Cold Stunner CM Punk Age : 33 Years Old Weight : 218lb Height : 6 ft 2 in Signature Maneuver : Go 2 Sleep The best way to get an idea who is the best is to compare three differing aspects. Wrestling ability, promo ability and star power. I'll offer my assessment now. In ring. Punk wins this for me. I wasn't really that impressed with Austin post neck injury when he reverted to the more brawling style. He was better before the injury but Punk's grasp on wrestling psychology puts him head and shoulders above most other performers. Punk 1 Austin 0 The ability to cut promos. Austin wins this one narrowly. He's cut better promo's then Punk has ever done. Yes I'm including the shoot. Austin is more steady in his voice whilst Punk struggles to maintain a steady tone during some of his work. Punk's great Austin is above that. Punk 1 Austin 1 Star Power The deciding factor is one which is often over looked during the evaluation of a wrestler. Star power. This isn't about drawing power but the ability to draw the audience into what they say. Having people upon the edge of their seat with every action. Austin wins this for me partly down to a revolutionary gimmick but mainly due to his portrayal. Punk 1 Austin 2 There we have it Austin wins this battle for me as the greater wrestler between the two. Feel free to evaluate my way, your own way or not at all.
