This sweet vintage wrestling shirt reps the iconic “Stone Cold” Steve Austin who was amongst some of the most popular professional wrestlers of the WWF in the 90s. This shirt features a portrait of Austin on the front beneath the words “whoop ass” while the back reads “professional ass kicker”. Like many wrestling greats, Austin was known for his iconic quips and catchphrases in the ring. His most notable was “Austin 3:16”, which he originally ad-libbed during a match against Jake “The Snake” Roberts, when Austin declared “Austin 3:16 says I just whipped your ass”.
Although Austin’s professional career began in 1989 when he signed onto World Championship Wrestling, he did not reach super stardom until he joined the World Wrestling Federation several years later. The WWF marketed Austin as a short-tempered and brash antihero, and this persona allowed him to quickly become the most popular wrestler during the Attitude Era. Austin was eventually forced to retire from the ring in 2003 due to multiple knee injuries, but he continued to make part-time appearances and was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame just a few years later.
