On this date in WWE history: Sheriff Austin vs Triple H on Monday Night Raw

Can Triple H bury even Stone Cold Steve Austin? He certainly tried on this date in history on Monday Night Raw, though he wasn't saying anything everyone else wasn't already thinking anyway.

So what do you do when you can't wrestle anymore but still get one of the loudest pops in the locker room? If you're Stone Cold Steve Austin, you become the C-General Manager of Monday Night Raw, or in this case, the "Sheriff" of professional wrestling.

Sound silly?

It was, but when you're "The Rattlesnake," you can pretty much get away with any gimmick, which is why he can ride around on an ATV in shorts with a tin badge pinned to his shirt.

Not even a promo by Triple H, which was 100-percent true, could deter the "Toughest S.O.B." from going down in flames (sorry Trips, but you can't bury everybody). What adds to the angle is the fact that Austin is playing middle man in the feud between HHH and Shawn Michaels.

We wouldn't see much of Stone Cold on TV following 2004, but what did you think of one of his last gimmicks?
