The Stone Cold Stunner is one of the most iconic moves in wrestling history, and no stunner sell-job is more iconic than that of the Rock at WrestleMania X7…or pretty much any other time he took the move.
However, he now has a potential competitor for the best ever stunner sell after AJ Styles took the move on last night’s Raw.
It was so good in fact, that AJ has received praise from the Rock himself on Twitter.
Yeah AJ – YOU HEAR HIM TALKIN TO YOU HILLBILLY BOY!!!! (lil’ inside attitude era joke). Real talk that Stunner back bump, flip into a scissors ✂️ sell was a thing of beauty ? ??
Way to bring the house down boys!

Styles was hit with the stunner twice on Raw, but it was the first during the main show that is getting all the plaudits.
So, which do you think is better?
