The Rock shares funny reason why he would oversell Steve Austin’s Stone Cold Stunner

The Rock and Steve Austin had one of the biggest rivalries in the history of the pro wrestling business.

They’re two of the biggest names in wrestling that just so happen to be in their primes in the same company during its hottest time, the Attitude Era.

While Austin hitting his signature finisher, Stone Cold Stunner, on Vince McMahon is the most remembered, some fans could argue that the selling by The Rock when receiving it was the best or the worse.

“The Great One” would practically fly back and flop around. It turns out that the reason he first started to sell the finisher that way was all to make Austin laugh. He wrote the following in a response to a clip that was shared on Twitter:

“Good Lord this was an awesome time in pro wrestling. Electrifying crowds! the crazy stunner bumps I would take started by me trying to make @steveaustinBSR laugh. If it weren’t for the crowds going batshit you could here Steve say “Jesuuuus Chriiist” #ohhellyeah @WWE.”
