“Stone Cold” Steve Austin is still one of most popular names in pro wrestling. His finisher is also pretty famous, and it’s also easy to pull off.

Dwight Howard recently admitted that he wanted to nail Giannis Antetokounmpo the Stone Cold’s famous stunner. The 76ers lost to the Bucks, 109-105 in an overtime loss on Wednesday night, and Howard almost had it.

“I wanted to go and ‘Stone Cold Stunner’ him, but I had already got one tech. It’s basketball. He wanted to have fun, but we’ll see these guys again. Today, we allowed them to get back into the game. We did it. We can’t control that.”

Of course, Dwight Howard didn’t nail Giannis Antetokounmpo with The Texas Rattlesnake’s dreaded finisher. That doesn’t mean he wasn’t very tempted to pull one out of his back pocket. We’ll just have to see if he gets around to busting one out, but there might be a huge fine waiting on him if he did.

H Jenkins

Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News opened the door for a new opportunity for Jenkins. With a history in finance, he broke into the journalism game by writing on blogs and other freelance websites before branching into sports and entertainment news. Being in tune with pop culture doesn't mean it has to make sense, but he tries. Favorite bands include any group from Seattle who formed between 1991 and 1999. 5 Ozzfests under his belt and 12 Warped Tours, but his last concert was a bluegrass AC/DC cover band that was not 100% terrible.
