Tonight's (Mon. January 22, 2018) episode of Monday Night RAW was a very special one, as it was the 25th Anniversary of the show.
Over the years RAW has solidified itself as the premiere show in professional wrestling history, and that's due in large part to one man - Stone Cold Steve Austin. Austin is one of the most iconic names in professional wrestling history and one of the biggest fan favorites of all time.
Austin is a three-time Royal Rumble winner, the most any Superstar has ever won, a several time WWE Champion, and a WWE Hall Of Famer. His feuds with The Rock and Vince McMahon remain some of the best rivalries of all time.
He was forced to end his career in 2003 due to nagging injuries and has since made sporadic appearances on WWE TV throughout the years. It has been some time since Austin appeared on RAW, but that all changed today.
In the opening segment of the night Shane McMahon and Stephanie McMahon kicked off the night by honoring their father, Vince McMahon, who is responsible for the success of the WWE over the years.
Stephanie and Shane tried to present Vince with a plaque to acknowledge his achievements throughout the years. Vince was insulted by simply being given a plaque for 25 years of hard work, and went off on the WWE Universe.
Vince called the WWE Universe 'cheap' and said he is the reason WWE is such a success, and he did it all on his own. Then Steve Austin's music hit and the crowd went absolutely nuts!
Stephanie left the ring and Vince remained along with Shane. After exchanging words, Austin hit Shane with a Stunner before having a beer with Vince. He then stunned Vince before giving Shane a beer after he got up, only to stun him again.
The fans absolutely loved the segment, and you can check out the main highlights here:
