Stone Cold in general was a mediocre wrestler. Sure physologically in the ring he was good but after Owen fucked his neck he was way too limited to do anything great. I think he was a VERY POOR wrestler after the injury. I hated the stupid brawler character from a wrestling stand point. From an entertainment standpoint,Stone Cold was entertaining,very much so,even in the ring.
I think his best body of work was actually in the WCW when he was blonde & wrestling the likes of Bryan Pillman & then in WWF early & as a ring master too he was allright. I thought he was good,sometimes great in those roles. But he was never ever in Shawn or Bret's league in the ring.
Overall looking at his in-ring career alone Shawn or Bret could run circles around him. Saying Shawn and Austin are as good in the ring are like saying Shawn and Austin are as good with the mic. Completely Untrue. Only blind Austin marks will try to drum this Austin in general was a great wrestler propaganda,which is Complete Bullshit.
