Did Stone Cold Steve Austin Pass the Torch to John Cena?

Adrian StaehleSenior Analyst IApril 15, 2009

I watched the Hall of Fame and there is one thing that stood out to me more than anything and I want you to take a look at this picture.

It the 20 picture of the album.

As you can see Austin giving Cena a beer, it got to me think is that beer like the torch that Austin was passing to Cena that night.

If you think about it, why did Austin give Cena that beer it had to mean something, and that's what I think it was passing the torch.

If you like it or not Cena is the Austin of this decade I mean he has been bigger than Randy Orton, Batista, or anyone else.

Austin has made the business bigger and it all changed at WrestleMania 13 when Bret turned heel and Austin turned face and made the WWE bigger than ever.

Cena on the other hand won the WWE Championship with his Ruthless Aggression and beat everyone down until he got to the top of the WWE.

He is, and has been since then so the question is will Cena pull the WWE out the funk it is in like Austin did back in the '90s.

Do you think Austin pass the torch to the right person?

Where can I comment?
