Austin Theory says that his stunner sell at WWE WrestleMania 38 is the best stunner sell ever.
Many iconic moments in the history of the wrestling industry have involved a stunner from Stone Cold Steve Austin. Many fans would argue that the Stone Cold Stunner is the most known move in the world of pop culture outside of the sport.
There have been plenty of debates throughout history about who has the best sell of the Stone Cold Stunner ever. While some fans will give that title to The Rock, other fans would say that stars like Scott Hall or Chris Jericho had better sells of the stunner.
In a recent interview, Chris Van Vliet complimented Theory on his sell of the stunner, which prompted the United States Champion to say that he has the best stunner sell based on the fact that he launched himself high into the air.
“I think it is the best. I don’t think it’s right up there, I think it’s right past the mark. What are we going based off of, height? Because ya boy was a rocket ship. [laughs] When I was on the independent scene, I would wrestle in Evolve and sometimes on other shows. If somebody hit me with a stunner, I remember one time I just jumped as high as I could and with just the roar of the crowd you know, you wanna bring that energy. I remember being really high in the air and landing on my back and then I’m flipping and I’m on my feet again, flying into the ropes. I knew at WrestleMania, the day of, [Steve] Austin is in the little golf cart pulling up right in front of the locker room and he has his back to me. I go up to him and I’m like ‘Hey, how’s it going? I just wanna introduce myself, I’m Austin.’ He was like ‘Very nice to meet you, I’ll be seeing you later.’ That’s how that day went and then I found out that I’m gonna get stunned. I knew the entire time that’s how I was gonna do it, and I didn’t tell anyone because I didn’t want anybody [to tell me no]. I’m gonna take my moment and that’s gonna be it.”
While Theory may have taken one of the better stunners at WrestleMania 38, many fans would argue that Vince McMahon took the worst one ever. Fans can learn more by clicking here.
