Dillon Brook channels inner stone cold Steve Austin in iconic attire
Stone Cold Steve Austin, who is considered synonymous with the Attitude Era of WWE, was known for his boss-hating, no-nonsense, and brash persona that elevated the company in the 90s. His signature skull engraved vest with ‘3:16’ spread across paired with denim jean shorts grew to become an iconic look, inspiring not just wrestling fans but celebrities and non-wrestling personalities as well.
Many stars have paid tribute to their favorite wrestling stars via music, films, and even attire. At UFC 276, Israel Adesanya paid homage to The Deadman by entering the arena wearing the latter’s attire and holding an urn in his hands with his opponent’s name on it.
Last year, Stone Cold Steve Austin came out of retirement to compete against Kevin Owens on the main event of Night 1 of WrestleMania 38. In 1998, he was involved in a brawl with Mike Tyson, who was the special guest referee for his WrestleMania match against Shawn Michaels. The segment turned into a heated exchange and then a brawl, with most of it being spontaneous and unscripted, as revealed by Steve Austin.
Although Stone Cold Steve Austin declined a potential WrestleMania match against Roman Reigns this year, his iconic look continues to inspire many, including Dillon Brook, who is among the latest to channel the Texas Rattlesnake in his pre-game look.
