Watch Some Of The WWE's Biggest Stars Recreate Stone Cold's Infamous 'Austin 3:16' Promo 20 Years Later

20 years ago, WWE superstar ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin gave one of the most iconic promos in the history of professional wrestling. The promo gave birth to ‘Austin 3:16,’ which ultimately became one of the most popular catchphrases in the sport.

After defeating Jake ‘The Snake’ Roberts in the King of the Ring 1996 final match, Austin cut a now famous promo during his coronation. Roberts was portraying a born-again Christian and Austin told him, ‘You sit there and you thump your Bible, and you say your prayers, and it didn’t get you anywhere! Talk about your Psalms, talk about John 3:16… Austin 3:16 says I just whipped your [expletive]!’

It was an iconic moment in the world of professional wrestling, one that started Austin’s rise to stardom as well as beginning the WWF’s ‘Attitude Era.’ To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the legendary promo, the WWE organized something special.

The WWE had some of their biggest superstars reenact ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin’s promo and combined the footage for fans to relive the famous moment.

The video shows WWE superstars like Seth Rollins, Chris Jericho, Becky Lynch and Big Cass as they recite the words every wrestling fan knows by heart.

During the original promo, Austin improvised the now legendary ‘Austin 3:16’ line after being tipped off that his opponent had previously talked about the Bible in his promo earlier.

In the 20 years following the ‘Austin 3:16’ speech, fans got to see ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin become the most profitable wrestler in the history of the organization.
