Steve Austin is a man who many pro wrestlers would love to emulate in any way. The Texas Rattlesnake is also known for his Lou Thesz Press among other moves in the ring. Austin isn’t hitting that move anymore, but he doesn’t mind others doing it as long as it is done correctly.
Austin Gunn nailed a Lou Thesz Press while on AEW Dynamite this week. Gunn sent out a little note to Stone Cold on Twitter where he asked, “how’s my form?”
Little did he expect, but Steve Austin replied in a big way. He shot back a response that simply said: “Hell Yeah!” That is pretty much the highest honor you can get from Austin to mark his approval.
We’ll have to see what’s next for Austin Gunn, but he obviously has Steve Austin’s blessing to use the Lou Thesz Press.
