Happy Austin 3:16 Day. Austin 3:16 says I just whooped your ass. The saying came about in 1996 King of the Ring. The "Rattlesnake" beat Jake "The Snake" Roberts, who at the time was using bible quotes as part of his gimmick. "Austin 3:16" became one of the most popular catchphrases in wrestling history, and sold tons of t-shirts. That is also when Austin busted out the "Stone Cold Stunner". Some say this was the start of the WWF's "Attitude Era".
Below check out some of Austin's highlights including the famous grocery store brawl with Booker T. Do it now because Stone Cold said so. I don't think wrestling will ever be as big as it was during the Attitude Era. I don't think they could get away with some of those old story lines today because some cry babies somewhere would find them offensive.
