The Austin 316 speech, pioneered the attitude era the McMahon feud, the Bret Hart feud, breaking into Brian Pillmans house, all made Austin the man.
One of my favorite angles was when Austin attacked Brian Pillman when Pillman was home with an injury. In fact Pillman house angle cemented my Austin fandom. This was suspenseful I was glued to RAW the whole night.
Everyone watching thought a few things. Pillman is going to shoot Austin on live TV, Pillman dropped the “f bomb” on live TV and Pillman’s wife has great boobs.
I believe this whole angle was more Pillman, than Austin and wished Pillam didn’t pass shortly after. Had Pillman been alive I think he and Austin would have had an amazing program maybe a Hollywood Blonds reunion.
Today is March 16th, this means nothing but since the date is 3/16, lets create our own hallmark holiday Austin 3:16 Day. Its only fitting that I post the speech where Austin 3:16 started when Stone Cold won the King of the Ring in 1996.
Hey there, Scunge here; I know alot of you readers are closet wrestling fans so I’m about to stick it in your mouth with some knowledge. I Joe So Delicious wrestle. “Professionally”. It isn’t easy. And sometimes the most NOT easy thing is to captivate an audience with a promo or interview.
The segment features two of the biggest wrestling stars of all time, “Stone Cold” Steve Austin and The Rock commence to go off on 15 minutes of literally nonsense…and its the most compelling thing you’ve ever seen in your life. Watch this and be mesmerized as this guys take nothing, absolutely nothing and turn out total entertainment. Enjoy.
This was when ALL not just wrestling fans but everyone drank the Stone Cold Steve Austin kool-aide. The set up weeks prior was done will.
This Rumble really changed the shape of the company. This was the night of HBK’s back injury against Undertaker in a casket match, that cost him 4 years of his career after his match at Wrestlemania 14. Rock & Austin really started to make there mark as the go to guys.
The Set up
STONE COLD, STONE COLD, STONE COLD !!!!!!!! JR sold that shit
