Stone Cold is still considered one of the most important wrestlers to ever exist during the Monday Night Wars. It is a very well-known fact that the WWE was losing the Monday Night Wars. RAW lost to WCW Nitro 83 weeks in a row once.
WCW was aired on TNT at that time. All Elite Wrestling’s AEW Dynamite now airs on TNT every Wednesday. Stone Cold had a very unique move set and many people came to watch only him. He also had a number of memorable rivalries with many of the best WWE Superstars of that time.
Stone Cold used the Stone Cold Stunner, which was a very unique move. These days, Kevin Owens uses the move in almost every single match that he wrestles in. Stone Cold appeared at the State of Combat podcast where he spoke about Kevin Owens.
"For Kevin Owens to borrow the 'Stone Cold Stunner,' sometimes when I see that trademark stomp in that corner I know that might have come from me, whoever is doing it. Everyone stomped someone in the corner but I had a way of doing it so when you see your influence on the younger generation that is still out there doing it it's very flattering and you want them to take it as far as they can go because you look for everyone to get in the business to have success”.
