I remember that Tazz vignette. I think it was after one of the many Tazz beatdowns and Tazz thought he was getting one over on Austin by mocking his watch thing. I give both men credit for keeping a straight face through that one.
Was it Unforgiven where they had that awesome video piece of Austin going insane? Talking to his watch, saying What? for little reason, hugging Vince, singing, playing a guitar, constantly beating down Tazz, it was all put together great.
I remember on a RAW once, there was something like this:
Austin: "My name is Stone Cold Steve Austin and I am the World Wrestling Federation Champion."
Is it just me, or does this thread remind anyone else of a certain Saturday Night Live, Chris Farley skit?
"Yeah... that was cool"
...and THAT was the punch line folks, high end comedy at it's finest.
However, looking back at that time, when he started adding the line "...and I do NOT deserve to be treated like this."; it kinda makes you wonder who wrote THAT little blurb for him, huh? Did he add it himself showing how he felt about the job at the time or WHAT?
Cerebus: Barbarian, Prime Minister, Pope, Perfect House Guest.
"Graft is as necessary as throwing up when you drink too much."
Ah, yes, the "Chris Farley Show" skit. My favorite line, Farley to Paul McCartney: "Hey, remember when you were in the Beatles, and they had those 'Paul is dead' rumors? Those weren't true, were they?"
man my fondest memories of austin was the silly heel austin, Then i just watched to see Angle and austin play off each other, man that was some funny stuff, my fav has to be when they had the cowboy hats and he gave kurt the little sombrero. lol
I'd go with Austin/Benoit. If anyone deserves a title run, it's the Crippler. He's amazing in the ring, and is one of the few that can get loads of heat without too much mic time. Plus, I'm a huge Benoit mark.
