Happy Austin 3:16 Day. The Saying came about in 1996 King of the Ring. That's when Austin busted out the Stone Cold Stunner. "Austin 3:16" became one of the most popular catchphrases in wrestling history, and sold tons of t-shirts. Some say this was the start of the WWF's "Attitude Era". Austin 3:16 says "I just Whooped Your Ass." This is one of my favorite Stone Cold Moments with Booker T.
