Two Words 21 | Stone Cold (Season 2 Finale)


About This Episode

There are plenty of wrestlers that have felt larger than life throughout the years, but few have reached this level of immortality by being a normal guy who hates his boss. Whether it was his in-your-face attitude, his cathartic clashes with authority, or his iconic catchphrase that has sold more T-Shirts than any other superstar from any promotion in all of pro-wrestling history: everyone felt a connection with Stone Cold Steve Austin. Today on the show, John & Radio Matt talk about the legacy of the one-and-only Texas Rattlesnake.
