Halloween has seemingly come early for NBA star Damien Lillard, who showed up to the Portland Trailblazers vs. Washington Wizards game last night dressed as WWE Hall of Famer “Stone Cold” Steve Austin.
Lillard was born in 1990 and likely grew up a fan of Austin during the Attitude Era. This was evident as Lillard showed up to the game with the Smoking Skull WWE Championship title belt, an Austin mask, an Austin 3:16 shirt, and torn jeans.
The subsequent online reaction from his arrival caught the attention of Austin himself, who added “Oh Hell Yeah!!!” to the clip, showing it to his audience. Take a look at the video through the tweet below:
Unfortunately, Lillard and the Trailblazers lost to the Wizards by a score of 125 -124 in overtime. Lillard himself scored 29 points, 8 assists, and 8 rebounds.
