Nexus leader CM Punk and WWE Hall of Famer “Stone Cold” Steve Austin had a strong exchange of words on Twitter on Wednesday, with Punk challenging Austin to a fight.

In a followup to the story, Punk tweeted the following:
“I like how THQ acts like they don’t know what would happen if @steveaustinBSR and I were to lock horns. Everybody knows. SXE > Beer.”
Punk followed up with: GTS > stunner.
Within 3 minutes, Punk’s tweet earned over a hundred re-tweets. It was trending throughout North America within two hours. It trended globally this morning.
Austin replied to punk – and says he’s got a can a whoop ass with Punk’s name on it:
@CMPunk alright Punk…you just crossed the line…i’ll be seeing your ass in Atlanta.
@CMPunk Alright son…I’m about to get off this treadmill and RUN to Atlanta..bringing some extra cans of Whoop Ass!!! YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!
@CMPunk What are you doing son, asking for advice/lessons etc.? I’ll give your pierced lipped ass a couple lessons when I see you. Out.
