I dunno. I'm just not sure Austin would come back in 2013+ and refuse to do what he thought Hogan should a decade earlier.
I think that if Austin/Punk had happened in the last two or three years, Austin would very possibly have gone over since Punk was frankly not in a good position from which to receive much reward for going over. That has changed, though, as he became one of their elite main-eventers (though obviously not being on the same exalted tier as Cena/Rock/Trips/Taker/Brock), and as Austin changed the finish to his match with Rock at Wrestlemania XIX to ensure that the man who was staying around would go over, I would think he'd probably almost downright insist that Punk go over. He's almost 50 years old with a body that is shot and hasn't had a match in nearly a decade. Punk losing to him, particularly after he hypothetically loses to The Rock at The Royal Rumble, would kind of wipe out his kayfabe "Best in the World" status, seeing as he's in his early-to-mid-30s.
