A Look Back at Austin Stunning Santa Claus

Scott Fishman of The Layfield Report has posted a new blog taking a look back at Stone Cold Steve Austin stunning Santa Clause during the Attitude Era. The following is a blog excerpt, and you can read the entire piece at this link.

The first time the Texas Rattlesnake hit his first Stunner on Vince McMahon sent shock waves through the industry.

However, it was a few months later in December of 1997 Austin created another historic moment on a Christmas themed episode of Raw. "Stone Cold" went toe-to-toe with Santa Claus or someone believed to be St. Nick himself.
