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:
AJ-Don’t you ever run down the name of Stone Cold Steve Austin. Especially @TheGarden. #DTA @WWE RT @3lone: @AJStylesOrg selling that @steveaustinBSR Stunner like @TheRock #RAW pic.twitter.com/uvyGIEZZlY— Steve Austin (@steveaustinBSR) September 10, 2019
AJ should be even more pleased that Rocky agrees! And I think Styles is probably thrilled... but I can’t be sure, since he’s too busy arguing semantics - and missing Johnson’s Pulp Fiction reference:
I’m a redneck Dwayne! There is a big difference. https://t.co/wm0vL42nBS— AJStyles.Org (@AJStylesOrg) September 10, 2019
Meanwhile, The Rock is thinking about when he can FINALLY return to Madison Square Garden like Stone Cold did last night (Sept. 9)... but Johnson’s not trying to get there for Raw or SmackDown. Instead, he wants to do it for the main event of UFC 244 on Nov. 2:
Doing all I can to make this fight. If I can and you win, I’ll put the belt around your waist at MSG - consider it done. Already shaping up to be one of the biggest and most electrifying fights in @ufc history. Can’t wait. @GamebredFighter @NateDiaz209 #respect #BMF #UFC244 ⚡️ https://t.co/nVTIeBtkgv— Dwayne Johnson (@TheRock) September 9, 2019
The night of that fight, Vince may feel a slight sting - and I don’t mean Steve Borden.
