Philadelphia Eagles Lane Johnson impersonates Stone Cold Steve Austin

Published Add your comment

It didn't matter what age your where, if you were a WWE fan throughout the attitude era and beyond, you couldn't help help but quote your favourite wrestlers.

From asking if you smell what the Rock is cooking to announcing that it is time to play the game, from dancing like Rikishi to trying to roll your eyes like the Undertaker.

The attitude era gave us a lot of memorable moments and characters but it could be argued that none was more memorable than Stone Cold Steve Austin.

The Texas Rattlesnake is now a WWE Hall of Famer and as is noted throughout the WWE original series the Monday Night War, he was one of the defining personalities in the attitude era.

Austin was often imitated and that has apparently not changed these days as Austin is still being paid homage to.

The latest celebrity to take on the role of the rattlesnake is Philadelphia Eagles offensive lineman Lane Johnson.

Johnson has the bald head of Austin and even has the facial hair to match, but it is his ability to lip sync one of Austin's classic rants that makes this memorable.

Clearly the NFL star has a chance of a future in the WWE if his football career doesn't work out for him, but he has many challenges to face first.

Whilst Johnson's attempt at a Stone Cold rant is good, it will always be difficult to beat the original.

More pressing issues

Whilst Johnson has shown that he has some potential within the WWE world, he and the Eagles have many more pressing issues to worry about.

The franchise are currently engulfed in trade rumours regarding one of the hottest prospects in this years draft, Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota.

Amongst that is the shocking events that have already taken place in Philadelphia which included swapping out LeSean McCoy for DeMarco Murray.
