Only one man in the history of professional wrestling can be associated with the previous statement. A man from one of the greatest wrestling families, the crown jewel of that family, and a true Canadian icon. A man who has been often imitated but never duplicated. During the age of the big man, he brought wrestling back to the World Wrestling Federation. A man who helped usher in the age of Attitude and made Steve Austin truly “Stone Cold.” A beloved face, a hated heel, multi time world champion in WWE, WCW, US Champion, IC Champion, Tag Team Champion in both leagues, simply one of the most decorated champions in the history of the business. We all know what happened in 1997, but no matter what happened in Montreal, this man will always be known as one of the greatest professional wrestlers of the century. A wrestling machine, and a genius of psychology with a masters degree inside the squared circle…
