A lot of people like to talk about Stone Cold’s “failed” heel run starting from WM17 (including Austin himself).
I thought it was great, the paranoid rattlesnake had some amazing matches and moments. Some people say that the fans weren’t ready to boo the evergreen antihero.
I feel like aside from a theme change (he had 2 different themes cycle through briefly)Austin didn’t do *too much* to be more of a heel. His wrestling style, mannerisms etc pretty much stayed the same. His style post neck injury became the template for “Wwe main event style” but do you think if he tweaked his wrestling a bit more the heel turn would have worked better or do you agree that fans didn’t want to boo him?
