    Looking back did you see Steve Austin's heel turn at WrestleMania 17 coming?


    I don't remember watching this when it first aired but it was the last show before WM 17:




    Austin's face at the end :russ::russ::russ:



    That was the heel turn right there......

    So much fukkery and entertainment, it was epic. I feel like 2001 Austin was the single greatest year for any wrestler. Putting on classic matches and his mic work was amazing.

    Austin 2001 was a spoiler to the goofball badass he is most of the time on his podcast.


    I didn’t think he was gonna turn but I do remember being weirded out by how he kept emphasizing that how NEEDED to beat the Rock

    They were talking about turning Austin heel before he got injured at Survivor Series 99 so when he came back in late 2000 it was in the back of my mind. I just wondered when they would execute it.

    Austin's heel turn was so telegraphed that having him not turn would have been the swerve. If you watch the build up and don't think that's obviously leading to Austin turning heel to win the title (the Vince part maybe you wouldn't see coming), idk if you've ever seen pro wrestling television before.

    As a kid I didn't understand why I was supposed to hate stone cold for doing bad guy shyt when he was always doing heel shyt. I didn't have anyone to root for because i didn't like the other faces more than him.

    WWE in 2001 wasn't all that entertaining either, I preferred 2002 after all the corny invasion shyt.
