20 Years Ago Today Stone Cold Steve Austin Cut His "Austin 3:16" Promo That Forever Changed Pro Wrestling


And there it is. The promo that propelled Stone Cold to the top of the WWE, and the promo that many say kicked off the Attitude Era in WWF. 20 years ago at King Of The Ring (RIP) Stone Cold beat Jake The Snake and then took the mic for an unscripted promo. He wasn’t even supposed to be in that spot- had HHH not been punished for the “Curtain Call” incident a few months earlier, Stone Cold wouldn’t have been in that spot to begin with. Crazy how it works that way.

And in honor of the 20th anniversary, The New Day re-enacted it to perfection, because New Day rock.
