The Rock approves of AJ Styles’ Stunner sell, and plots his own MSG return

When you’re talking Stone Cold Stunners, there have been a lot of famous recipients over the years. One currently lives on Pennsylvania Avenue, as a matter of fact. But the two names most associated with taking Steve Austin’s finisher are probably Vince McMahon and Dwayne Johnson.

The Chairman showed a lot of ass for the Texas Rattlesnake, but when you’re talking bumping for the Stunner, The Rock is the measuring stick everyone uses. So you’d think AJ Styles would be pretty pleased that Austin didn’t dispute a fan compared him to The Great One:
