What does 316 mean for Steve Austin?

It's not 316, it's Austin 3:16 like in the Bible there's John

3:16. Austin 3:16 is actually a parody of John 3:16. Steve Austin

just won the King of the Ring tournament by defeating Jake "The

Snake" Roberts. Roberts' gimmick at the time was that of a born

again Christian spouting Bible quotes (most notably John 3:16).

Upon defeating Roberts, Austin said in the interview afterward and

i quote "You talk about your John 3:16's; Austin 3:16 says I just

whipped your ass!" The quote has stood as a symbol of the

rebelliousness of Austin ever since and Austin 3:16 has become

pretty much his unofficial slogan/symbol/calling card. "And thats

the bottom line, cause Stone Cold said so!"
