• WWF Legend Credits Steve Austin For Starting A New Style In Wrestling
On a recent episode of his weekly ‘Grilling JR’ podcast, WWF Legend Jim Ross spoke about his close, personal friend ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin and how The Rattlesnake ignited a new style of toughness in professional wrestling.
Here’s what the 2007 WWE Hall of Famer said:
“I can tell you when this guy named Stone Cold Steve Austin started breaking the glass…he ignited a style, a vibe. And that look then identified with success and toughness – two traits that men love.
There’s only probably one or two things in life you want more than success and love.
Austin just took the ball out of everybody’s hands and said, ‘I’m the man. I’m the guy here. And if I’m the only one that can see it, I don’t give a sh*t. Just watch what I do.”
Steve Austin wrestled for The World Wrestling Federation from January 1996 until March 2003, and is still considered one of the greatest Wrestling Legends of all time.
