WWE News: Triple H praises Stone Cold Steve Austin ahead of Raw's 25th Anniversary
The Game gives his take on Stone Cold's impact during the Attitude Era ahead of what promises to be an exciting anniversary on January 22.
What’s the story?
WWE COO and NXT senior producer Triple H recently spoke with USA Today’s "For The Win" blog as part of promotion for Monday Night Raw's 25th Anniversary episode. During the interview, Triple H spoke about Stone Cold Steve Austin and revealed what the Texas Rattlesnake meant to the Raw brand during the attitude era.
In case you didn't know…
During WWE's Attitude Era, Stone Cold Steve Austin was considered as one of the biggest stars in the entire wrestling world - if not the biggest of them all. Austin is a former six-time WWF World Champion and during his tenure with the company, he played a part in some of the most memorable feuds of all-time while giving endless memorable moments too.
The Texas Rattlesnake's feuds against the likes of Vince McMahon, The Rock, D-Generation X and the Undertaker are by far some of the finest rivalries ever witnessed within the WWE. The former King of the Ring Winner retired from in-ring competition at Wrestlemania XIX with his final match being against another of his closest rivals in The Rock.
The heart of the matter
During Triple H’s talk with USA Today, The Game had some high praises for Stone Cold. The King of Kings started off by stating that Stone Cold was probably the biggest star during the Attitude Era, despite the multiple injuries that The Texas Rattlesnake was suffering from. Additionally, Triple H claimed that anytime Austin was around he brought a different personality and intensity which is very hard to beat.
He was quoted as saying: "It wasn't the longest run on the planet because of injuries for Steve, but there was no bigger star ever in the business, probably. Just in that moment in time, it was huge. And anytime Steve is around, he just has a personality and an intensity that's just hard to beat."
The Raw 25th Anniversary episode looks absolutely stacked and with the likes of The Undertaker, Shawn Michaels, Ric Flair, Jim Ross, Stone Cold Steve Austin and more scheduled to appear, this show is definitely going to be one you wouldn’t want to miss.
Stone Cold Steve Austin certainly was a superstar in the WWF and seeing him make another appearance at Raw's 25th Anniversary episode is certainly going to be a nostalgic experience for his supporters, as the show itself promises to be memorable.
