GIVE STONE COLD A HELL. YEAH HURRY!!

I am a Stone Cold Steve Austin fan…and that’s the bottom line! I find the WWE Superstar to be one of the best in the history of Sports Entertainment. He is mean, yet funny, sarcastic and quick-witted. And his signature move, THE STONE COLD STUNNER, can really excited the crowds. Yes, “The Texas Rattlesnake” is up there with my all-time favorites…but oh, how the mighty have fallen.

Take this recent YouTube video, in which Austin becomes the latest celebrity to get in on the Rick Roll Internet meme:

ARE YOU KIDDING?! Does Stone Cold need a “Hell Yea” so badly that he’ll lip sync “Never Gonna Give You Up” by Rick Ashley? Somewhere Triple H, The Undertaker and The Rock are wondering if Austin 3:16 really says, “Hey I’m a fan of cheesy British pop songs, and I’ll prove it!”

Now I kid Austin because I’m a fan and don’t want to be on the business end of a Stone Cold Stunner, but I am also looking out for the man…John Cena will see this, Steve! He will use it against you!! STEVE! STEVE PLEASE!! No more OK? STEVE? Can I get a “Hell Yea!” that this behavior will stop “stone cold turkey”!?
