Re: Stone Cold's 2001 heel run
It's one of the most bizarre turn of events I've ever seen in wrestling. Austin absolutely killed that run, and in turn it almost killed his career.
He was producing gold every second he was on screen, but people didn't want to buy it. People still wanted the rattlesnake. A real shame, because Austin was perhaps at his best in 2001, both inside the ring and on the mic. He played an AMAZING heel. The matches he produced that year were phenomenal, and the segments weren't far behind.
