WWE 13 is less than two weeks away from release, and excitement is at a fever pitch in the wrestling community.  THQ, not one to back down when it comes to talking to big stars about the game, recently sent its community manager Aubrey Sitterson to interview the WWE legend "Stone Cold" Steve Austin about the game.

The interview covers a variety of topics, including whether "Stone Cold" could survive in today's wrestling scene, some of his favorite memories from yesteryear, and even a possible rivalry with the game's cover star, WWE champion CM Punk.  The interview does get humorous as it goes on, as Austin, in full-on character mode, makes Sitterson a bit uncomfortable with hostility.  Relax, kids, he survived – and didn't even get stunned.

You can check out the interview in full via YouTube.  Grab a six-pack of beer and enjoy.

WWE 13 arrives in stores October 30th for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Wii.  Don't forget you can still order a limited edition "Stone Cold" Steve Austin edition exclusively through THQ.com.
