Further, she added, “A special message to the families of the fallen. As a military brat, I know first hand that it’s not just the soldier that makes sacrifices, but the families as well. Thank you! May this Memorial Day remind you that you are appreciated!! God bless the USA! 🇺🇸 . #memorialday #usa #fallensoldiers #soldiers #bravemenandwomen”.

Austin, in the video said, “Before we get to beer drinking I would appreciate Lillian, this camera man, to get his a** out of way. Lillian, if you will come back to the ring. I got a little surprise for you. I admit it I can’t sing worth a damn. But I’ll like to do a little duet with Lillian here on the song called ‘The America the Beautiful. If you guys wanna sing along with me, I sure would appreciate it”.

When Did Steve Austin Become “Stone Cold?”

Stone Cold insisted Lilian Garcia join him to sing the song in the ring. As we can see from the video, both sang the patriotic song. Garcia was trying to hold her laugh as The Rattlesnake sang terribly, but he had already warned about this!

McIntyre said, “On the night of Mania I gave him some advice which is also surreal. He hasn’t done this for 20 years and I could see… Even though he’s a very confident, intense guy – the way the character is, that’s the way he is in real life – but no, I mostly just reminded him to breathe.”

However, this might have really helped Austin as he later went out and gave an amazing match. The fans and even wrestling critics acclaimed this match well. If this was the last match of The Rattlesnake, it sure was a fitting end to his illustrious career.
