Quenching his thirst
WrestleMania is the biggest event on WWE's calendar, one that Superstars prepare their entire careers for, so it's only natural to get a little thirsty on the Road to WrestleMania. On the final Raw before WrestleMania XV, "Stone Cold" Steve Austin apparently thought The Corporation looked a little parched, so he decided to help them out.
On March 22, 1999, The Corporation -- WWE Chairman Mr. McMahon, his son Shane and then-WWE Champion The Rock -- stood in the ring to berate the Texas Rattlesnake, who was challenging for the WWE Championship at WrestleMania XV that weekend. All of a sudden, the sound of breaking glass was heard; Stone Cold's music filled the arena, and the Texas Rattlesnake rolled to ringside in quite possibly his dream vehicle -- a Coors Light beer truck.
No one ever said Stone Cold was much of a giver, but on this night, he showed his more altruistic side to his sworn rivals. Unleashing a giant hose from the side of the vehicle, the Texas Rattlesnake turned the truck into a super-sized Super Soaker, blasting The Corporation with a stream of Rocky Mountain refreshment that would make Norm, Cliff Clavin and the rest of the Cheers gang faint. In perhaps one of the funniest visuals in WWE history, our fans witnessed the WWE Chairman and his son on their duffs, literally swimming in puddles of beer as they tried to escape Stone Cold's liquid attack.
Of course, the Texas Rattlesnake's night couldn't be complete without partaking in a frost-brewed beverage himself. So, once The Corporation's thirst was quenched, Stone Cold obliged his own by climbing his battle tank and chugging a couple "Steve-weisers."
The damage was done, and while they may not have known it then, the Raw Fan Nation had just witnessed one of Raw's greatest moments, one that earned Stone Cold and the "Silver Bullet" a silver medal -- the No. 2 spot on WWE.com's list of the Greatest Moments in Raw History.
