Steve Austin on Kevin Owens using his stunner

Stone Cold Steve Austin held 19 championships throughout his wrestling career, as he is a six-time WWF World Heavyweight Champion, a two-time Intercontinental Champion and a four-time WWF Tag Team Champion—thus making him the fifth Triple Crown Champion in WWE history—while also being a two-time WCW United States Heavyweight Champion, a two-time WCW World Television Champion, a one-time WCW World Tag Team Champion and a one-time NWA World Tag Team Champion in WCW.

He was also the winner of the 1996 King of the Ring tournament as well as the 1997, 1998 and 2001 Royal Rumbles, making him the only three-time winner of the event. Furthermore, he was awarded the unsanctioned Million Dollar Championship by Ted DiBiase.

Speaking on the State of Combat podcast, he commented on Kevin Owens using his stunner: “And for Kevin Owens to borrow the 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 to do it. So, when you see your influence on the younger generation that’s currently still out there doing it, it’s very flattering. And you just want them to take it as far as they can go with it.

Because you look for everyone to get in the business to have great success. And sometimes, the greatest technical workers aren’t the greatest success. It’s the character people, or it’s a combination of people.

So anytime that you see something of yours that someone else has taken and ran with, and improved or tweaked, and made part of their own — go back to the superkick. Everybody’s been doing the superkick. But when Shawn [Michaels] started using it, it was really effective for him. So yeah, it is really cool”.
