Wink Stone cold's rise to the top: when and how was it started?

I remember myself stop watching WWE from Wrestlemania 13 (1997) to December 1997. that means I was out of bussiness for something like 8 monthes
now, when I made my "comeback" as a full-time WWE fan in the end of 1997, Stone cold had suddenly became WWE's mega-star. that was bizzare to me, since I remembered him as another good superstar, but not that big.
my question is what have I missed in this 8 monthes period which made Austin WWE's greatest star? what was his defining moment in this period?
thank's for help

imo his epic promos from that year before he became really mainstream popular got him really over.

his continuation feud with bret hart the hart foundation and shit like this. stunning officials and shit and mcmahon etc a whole bunch of stuff. also enjoyed his little feud with the nation of domination

He probably kept getting bigger and bigger after the Austin 3:16 interview. I think he was supposed to be actually given the WWF Title at WrestleMania 13, but Michaels didn't want to drop it and etc etc Taker got it instead. But funnily enough Austin having that submission match with Bret Hart likely did more for his career than winning the strap that night could have.

He was probably their definite #1 star once Bret left a gap open after Survivor Series 97. The 98 Rumble was pretty much centered around him (b/c of the big rivalry v McMahon continuing), and the next night was the big "Austin and Tyson" segment. This was all before he even became Champion.

how can you top this?

people saying Rock/Rock is one of greatest rivalries but for me is overrated...yes those guys is major drawer make money for WWE but in term of rivalries/storyline and matches just cant top Bret/Austin.

this is how Cena vs Rock should be build alike but turn into full of crap...

His high-intensity promos and don't give a damn attitude is what truly made him popular
