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.
