The Bros Who Did The Stone Cold Stunner On Stage During Graduation? The School Is Refusing To Give Them Their Diplomas

CORAL GABLES, Fla. – A pair of students pulled off a graduation stunt to remember Monday — going old-school WWE to rile up the crowd at the University of Miami’s Bank United Center.

It all began with one of the students, Nicholas Dean, strutting across the stage holding a WWE title belt high above his head.

“It was in talks for maybe two, three months,” Dean said. “We just kind of talked about it and graduation time came. I had the belt and it happened.”

But wait! Oh my God! Is that his friends’ music playing?!?!

Out of the blue, the other student, Joseph Castro, kicks his pal in the stomach and pulls off a perfect “Stone Cold Stunner” to the amazement of parents and friends.

But the glory of the moment was quickly squashed after administrators whisked them off stage.

“They told us we should be embarrassed and ashamed,” said Dean.

“The administration was ‘very disappointed’ that we had done that,” Castro said.

“It doesn’t look good on them, and I’m sorry about that, but there’s nothing I can do about it now,” Dean said.

Besides the title belt, the students left graduation empty-handed as the school declined to award them their diplomas.

The school district said Dean and Castro’s diplomas are being withheld until a meeting with their parents next week.

Update – Originally thought this was college graduation, but it was high school graduation at University of Miami’s stadium. My bad. How did nobody correct me yesterday.

“The school district said Dean and Castro’s diplomas are being withheld until a meeting with their parents next week.” HAHAHA. Is that a real sentence? A meeting with their parents? That’s really happening? For two kids who were just fucking around at graduation? Oh my god, I thought administrations were treating kids like 2 year old toddlers, but this is next level. Withholding diplomas from two kids for doing a perfectly harmless, very funny, very quick stunt to celebrate their graduation. Give me a fucking break.

Love their attitude though.

But despite the consequences, it seems the notoriety is making up for it.

Diplomas or not, these students deserve high honors for a graduation classic.

“Oh, it was worth it,” Dean said.

“Totally worth it,” said Castro.


PS – Imagine if these bros did the Stone Cold beer chug like I told them they should have done yesterday?


Oh man, we’d probably be talking about a 5-7 year prison sentence here. After a sit-down with their parental unit to discuss the pitfalls of alcohol abuse of course.
