#6. It was Bret Hart who convinced Vince McMahon to sign Steve Austin
Bret Hart was already part of WWE long before Stone Cold Steve Austin was ever created, but he was able to reveal alongside the former WWE Champion that it was actually him who got Vince McMahon to sign him to WWE.
Austin was down in ECW at the time and Hart had seen what he could do and thought that he would be a decent option for WWE. Hart revealed that he went on to have a conversation with the Chairman and the next thing he knew, Austin was a WWE superstar.
"I remember talking about you [Austin]. I think you just signed with ECW and I said, 'why don't you guys grab Steve Austin' he was free, he was available. I said 'you're looking for new guys all the time and he's one of the best guys down there and they just let him go with WCW' and I said 'I don't know why you didn't grab him' and I talked to Vince about it and I remember the next week you were sitting in the dressing room."
