Everyone knows the Biblical scripture, John 3:16. “For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son that whosoever believes in him shall have eternal life.” We’ve seen it pop up at sporting events, usually by someone in a rainbow clown wig. But it’s also graced the WWE stage by none other than Stone Cold Steve Austin.
As the story goes, back in 1996, Austin started using 3:16 when he beat Jake Roberts in the King of the Ring match. Apparently, Roberts was a born-again Christian and had been using John 3:16 as part of his entrance routine and character. So when he lost, Austin took the opportunity to capitalize on that verse, turning it into Austin 3:16, “I just whipped you a$$.”
Seems a little weird right?
