WWE Hall Of Famer Stone Cold Steve Austin certainly had a major influence on the youth of the ’90s and early ‘2000s during the Attitude Era. Many of those youths are today’s sports stars. For example, Portland Trail Blazers point guard Damian Lillard showed off just how big of a Stone Cold fan he is recently.
Prior to the Trailblazers’ game against the Washington Wizards last night, Lillard pulled up to the arena dressed up as “The Texas Rattlesnake.” Lillard wore sneakers, torn jeans, an “Austin 3:16” t-shirt, and Stone Cold Steve Austin mask. He also carried around the smoking skull WWE Title belt.
Steve Austin shared the clip of Lillard walking around in the costume on Twitter, adding in some comments as well. Here’s what he had to say:
“Oh Hell Yeah!!!”
Oh Hell Yeah!!! RT @BleacherReport: Dame pulled up to the game as Stone Cold ?

Unfortunately for Lillard, the Trailblazers fell to the Wizards 125-124 in overtime. However, Lillard had a solid performance with 29 points, eight assists, and eight rebounds.
