He single handed brought the WWF into a whole new level never seen before or since. He took the company from wherever Hogan left it, picked it up, tossed it over his shoulders and ran with it all by himself. No one else would have been capable to pull it off or even come close to it. Only he can get away with beating the crap out of the Boss (VKM and his family and cronies for that matter) on a weekly basis and get away with it and on top of that have the whole wrestling universe tuning in to see what the hell he was going to come up with every monday, and he's also the reason why WCW lost to WWF in the Monday night ratings war (all but maybe 2 weeks) even though Ted Turner had acquired all those other wrestlers, many of whom were "stolen" from WWF or were former WWF wrestlers like Hogan, Nash, Hall, X-Pac, etc., and still they couldn't put a dent to what Austin was doing. All who disagree can just look it up and stop trying to sell Cena as the best because he is not, he's a pumped up ...more
Not the greatest overall run because his career was cut short by injury, but the greatest and hottest run of any major superstar in history. Stone Cold Steve Austin helped make wrestling seem cool to teenagers, young adults, and adults who had become lapsed fans. Could you imagine a maverick politician being able to flip off President Trump, hit him with a Stunner, dump beer on him, and then chug more beer? Stone Cold Steve Austin was a blue-collar superhero. He was simultaneously exceptional & relatable. If you agree with my assessment of the Texas Rattlesnake, gimme a hell yeah! - joemccaffrey
Sorry, 2 great years:1998-1999 don't equal 25 great years. And yes undertaker had 25 great years! 1990-2015. From start to finish. Took a few years for Austin to get going and the end of his career was nothing to brag about.
He was a wife beater and walked out on WWE-wwf because he didn't want to job to lesner.
He is th first wrestler I have ever cheered for and will always be my #1. I like him a lot and wish for him to come back he will forever remain as a legend amongst those big names
Something for us all to remember from Austin I've traveled the world the last few years,
Sometimes I think of home,
And even Stone Cold has to fight the tears.
Another car, bus, or plane takes me to far away places,
But what I remember most is all the smiling faces.
Short people, tall people, people with glasses,
The bottom line is I'll whip all your asses.
Stone cold Steve Austin is the best there is, the best there was and the best there ever will be. Stone cold could do whatever he wanted to do in the WWE and that's he's the best.

No wrestler in the history of WWE transformed the fortunes of the company like the beer guzzling Texas rattlesnake did. He was the face of wwf during its greatest era. He received the loudest pops from arenas all over the world. His matches with Vince & The Rock created headlines. Without a shadow of a doubt, SCSA is the greatest wrestler of all time. If you think otherwise, there's a can of whoop ass waiting for you. That's the bottom line 'because Stone Cold said so. Now, gimme a hell yeah.
While we have the Phenom (Undertaker), the World's Most Electrifying Wrestler in sports entertainment (Rock), the Cerebral Assassin (Triple H), but yet.. One cannot say that they hate the one man who literally helped keep the WWF/WWE on the page with WCW and the likes in the earlier years, The Undertaker is a definite legend in his own right, but you cannot DENY that the legend of the Rattlesnake should merely be -Fifth-.
No wrestle will ever be able to say "Kiss my ass," like Austin did. His whole career screamed it, the way he wrestled screamed it, and the way he "stunned" the whole world and brought the WWF/WWE to life has to be one if the greatest moments in entertainment history. When you talk about "greatest of all time" his name comes up in the top 3 every time. Those Rock matches were priceless. The real Texas Badass.

Austin was the pioneer of the attitude era and he's number 5? Right after a suck-up, an ass-kisser, a bigger ass kisser, and the man who has only fought in 3 matches of the year 2013. This is really sad because austin is better than all 4 of them. "And that's the bottom line because stone cold said so! "
Steve Austin has really caught my attention. He had a unique personality compared to other wrestlers; he was just reckless and never gave a damn. If he says he's going to open up a can of whoop ass on you, you better be ready for it. - Mcgillacuddy
