Steve Austin Speaks to TMZ About Tebow Using “John 3:16″

Steve AustinTMZ.com recently caught up with WWE Hall of Famer Stone Cold Steve Austin and spoke with him about Tim Tebow using the "John 3:16" phrase under his eyes during his playoff game against the Pittsburgh Steelers this past weekend. The following are excerpts from the article:

Before there was Tebow 3:16 in the NFL … there was Austin 3:16 in the WWE … and now the wrestling legend says he's willing to surrender his iconic numbers to the NFL star, pending one GIANT condition.

TMZ spoke with "Stone Cold" Steve Austin – who tells us he watched Tebow's Mile High Miracle this weekend and was blown away when he learned Tim threw for exactly 316 yards in the playoff victory.

Now, Austin tells us, "Austin 3:16 still rules" … but adds, "If Tebow can throw for 316 yards again this weekend then hell, he can have the numbers and I'll have no problem with it."
