‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin is a legend in his own right. He remains one of the faces of the Attitude Era. In the PG Era, fans found a similar image in CM Punk.

Austin revealed, “Throwing it back a couple of years ago and many years ago. The first pic is a while back when @cmpunk stopped by my place on the Mean Streets of Los Angle Eze. Marina del Rey, to be exact. Same town @georgestrait sang about…Second pic is after a show at the Rosemont Horizon in Chicago. At the hotel/restaurant we always stayed at when we were in town. I think it was the Clarion or something like that.” 

Steve Austin has always appreciated CM Punk and Chicago

As performers, WWE superstars are almost always on the road. However, they often have a particular fondness for some cities. For Austin, Chicago was one of those cities. Coincidentally Punk is also from Chicago.

“Anyway, Chicago would turn out to be one of my best towns to work. And the Rosemont was my fave building to work in because of the acoustics there. You could hear everything instantly, and it was loud. Crazy a** fans that you love to work for.”
