While doing an interview with The Wrap to promote his new television show, ‘Straight Up Steve Austin,’ that will premiere next Monday night right after WWE Raw on the USA Network, the WWE Hall of Famer talked about Kevin Owens.
Austin was asked to grade Owens’ use of the ‘Stunner’. Obviously, the pro wrestling legend is famously known for using it as his finisher during his career with WWE.
Now, with WWE pushing Owens in a similar spot as Austin in his program with Shane McMahon, the former Universal Champion has switched to The Stunner from the pop-up powerbomb.
“I would give it a B+. I’m a huge K.O. fan, but I’ve seen a couple of the deliveries that have been a little off.”
Austin continued, “He’s timing it up and he’s coming up — he’s got a little bit of a different finesse to it than I did. But I soon think he’ll achieve A to A+ status if practice makes perfect, and they gotta let him turn that thing loose. I enjoy watching him use it and I’m glad someone is using it. And I’m glad it’s him.”
