TRIU Match of the Week: © The Rock vs. “Stone Cold” Steve Austin for the WWF Title at WM17…

Wrestlemania 17, Houston, TX (4/1/01)


No DQ Match for the WWF Championship at WM17 – “Stone Cold” Steve Austin vs. © The Rock: First of all let me say how great it was to watch this match with the great Jim Ross and Paul Heyman on commentary. Austin came out of the gate strong being in front of his home town crowd and the Rock came back just as hard. The brutality in this match reminded me of old school wrestling. Both men bled at some point during the match and the twist ending where Vince comes out and Stone Cold surprises everyone by getting help from Vince. This leads to my favorite moment after the match is over and Vince and Austin shake hands and JR says “Austin is shaking hands with the devil himself!!” Great match with two icons in the game and it entertains even years later…
