'Stone Cold' -- Giving the Finger to The Rock

4/6/2011 3:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

"Stone Cold" Steve Austin rated The Rock's return to wrestling with one massive digit -- but instead of using his trademark middle finger salute ... dude gave the guy a "big thumbs up."040611_steve_austin_v2_still



Austin was cruising through LAX yesterday when we asked him about The Rock's appearance at WrestleMania -- and dude had nothing but good things to say about it.

Among the complements ... Austin said The Rock is one of his "favorite opponents of all time."

Stunning.

Who writes this inane 12 year old S H I T ? Harvey, I thought child labor was illegal in the US. My God, the intellectual level of some of these postings (from TMZ) boggles the mind. Talk about dumbing down America - no wonder Barak Obama was elected!

We all know wrestling is as fake as can be, who's going to win and so on, but it's entertainment for alot of fans. These guys work very hard and do their job and have no problem making fun of themselves.

The Rock had a couple of movies that were not great but fun.

I want the Rock back in movies. He's actually not a bad actor. Not hard to look at either, imho :)

I recorded WM27 and rewatched the Undertaker/HHH match and saw what went wrong after he landed awkwardly on a chair in the ring. He eventually got back up looking dazed and HHH put Taker in a second Pedigree gone wrong (for non-wrestling people, think of it as a modified piledriver, or ramming your opponent headfirst into the mat). Taker then rolled to the left and the camera caught him mouthing the words "my neck". After that Taker was doing mainly defensive moves and wasn't playing his ring persona, just more or less he was trying to get through the rest of the match.

Funny enough, the size of Steve's thumb is the actual size of his steroid penis.

I like the Rock but do wonder why Steve Austin hasn't had as a good a movie career. He was really good on Nash Bridges.
