WWE Hall Of Famer ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin had a tremendous time at WrestleMania 38. During Night 1, he defeated Kevin Owens in a surprisingly solid No Holds Barred match. Angle also explained why Vince McMahon’s WrestleMania 38 stunner was a disaster.
During Night 2, he confronted Vince McMahon and Austin Theory. He gave stunners to the WWE Chairman, Theory and even Pat McAfee.
However, when Austin tried to hit his stunner on McMahon, the WWE Chairman fell back too far against the ropes and was unable to get into position. The stunner itself lacked any impact whatsoever and fans simply found it amusing.
While speaking during his podcast on AdFreeShows.com, WWE Hall Of Famer Kurt Angle talked about McMahon’s stunner. He explained why the stunner was such a disaster.
“The thing is, his timing was just plain bad. You could see Vince had no idea when to jump; he didn’t know when to go down, up and down. He just thought you’d go up and down/ With Austin; he didn’t expect the boot to the gut. He just thought he was going to Stun him, so when Steve booted him, Vince went to his knees. Steve had to pick him back up, and he tried it again, and Vince backed up into the ropes and bounced off the ropes. It was like a disaster, man! I just wanted to get it over with! Because he knew from the beginning it was going to happen like that!”
Mick Foley also previously made a bet that he could take a stunner better than Vince McMahon when he turns 76. We will have to wait and see if that’ll end up happening or not.
