In the late 90s, the WWF benefited from having two huge main event superstars on the roster, Stone Cold Steve Austin and The Rock. Both guys had a legitimate claim of being the number 1 superstar in the whole wrestling business, and the WWF flourished greatly thanks to Austin and Rock being active at the same time during much of the Attitude Era. Stone Cold was a huge draw, his contributions to the WWF had resulted in the company seeing it's greatest financial growth in history, and The Rock had unmatched charisma that made him a megastar both inside and outside the ring.
When Stone Cold Steve Austin faced The Rock at WrestleMania XV, the match was so good that it was eventually decided that both competitors would square off in a further two WrestleMania events. Each match was different from the other; WrestleMania XV was all about "The Corporation" taking down the blue-collar working man, WrestleMania X7 was about both men trying to prove that they were the number 1 guy in the wrestling business, and WrestleMania XIX told the story of the succesful entertainer coming back to get redemption in the ring. The WrestleMania Trilogy featuring Stone Cold Steve Austin vs The Rock was extremely captivating and this video aims to tell the story of each match.
Topics and Matches include:
00:00 - The Intercontinental Title
03:06 - Rock becomes "The Corporate Champion"
07:28 - Austin vs Rock - WrestleMania XV
10:02 - The Road to The Astrodome
15:37 - Austin vs Rock - WrestleMania X7
21:16 - "Hollywood" Rock

    XIX ages the best, I loved the match live, but it replays better, especially now we know it was Austin’s last match. And as a Rock fan, it definitely scratched a nagging itch lol. I like 17, but I remember being upset the last five minutes of the match was just chair shots. Though that My Way promo is still legendary, and Paul Heyman was amazing on commentary with JR. I like that duo more than JR/King.

    The rock is by far the bigger celebrity, I mean he's been one of the highest paid guys in hollyweird for years and was THE highest paid a year or two ago. That being said, Stone Cold was and still is the biggest draw in wrestling. The rock in my eyes was always number 2 compared to Stone Cold

    It is stupid for fans to boo The Rock willingly after cheering him leading up to The King of The Ring PPV a few years before WM 17, but then bitch and moan and bitch and moan continuously about having to boo Austin and their only defense of said criticism is "AUSTIN WAS TOO POPULAR TO BOOOOooo...ooooOOOOOooo..." when Austin turned heel at the biggest show of the year, as The Rock was also popular, but as soon as he turned on the people and joined forces with McMahon to defeat Mankind at KOTR, well no one batted an eye and accepted booing him again, but will have the biggest hissy fit about having to boo the texas rattlesnake.

    Never thought 19 was as good as 15 or 17. Aside from Austin's career coming to an end, it didn't have the purpose of the first two matches, just felt thrown together so Rocky could have a win while there was still time. That Rock concert on the go-home Raw was superb though.

    The two biggest wrestling stars in the history of the industry. People many times have said either one would have dominated an era of wrestling, but this rare point in history they both coexisted in the same era, the best era. Many sports have classic and legendary rivalries and events. These two were IT for pro wrestling! It’s poetic that Austin’s final match was against the Rock in Wrestlemania.

    All due respect to the Austin Mcmahon rivalry which helped turn the tide for the wwe during the Monday night wars but The Rock vs Stone Cold was the greatest rivalry in the attitude era which gave us an epic trilogy of three classic Wrestlemania matches but for me their WM X7 battle was their greatest match in the main event. The buildup was fantastic and the match absolutely delivered which saw two of the biggest and most popular stars wage war for the world title to prove who was number one. It was the greatest time to be a wrestling fan and everytime these two got together, it was pure magic and a hell of a rollercoaster ride. I'm really glad Austin got to have his last match with Rock at Wrestlemania as it was a fitting end to a great trilogy.

    Correction. The Rock didn't lose the right to face Triple H at WM19. In the backstage segment he said to Bischoff he didn't want to face Triple H because at this time he needs a victory over Austin at WM rather than the world title. So he cancelled his match with Booker T. Then Bischoff said that he still needs The Rock in the match at RAW because "sponsors and advertises were promised to see The Rock in action" or something like that. So The Rock went on to face The Hurricane with whom he had a backstage segments for some weeks during that period. Still an awesone video though. One of the best feuds of all time. Maybe you can cover the rest of their matches too? Would be great!

    Nothing was the same after they both left the full time roster. They were the Ali/Frazier of the company. The two greatest we've ever seen. Hogan, Michaels, Taker, Hart, Flair are in the second tier. Rock/Austin really are in a class of their own. I miss the peak 98 - 2001 days with Kurt and Jericho, too.
