The year was 1998
WrestleMania XIV was on the horizon and one unlikely conflict was about to set off a chain of events that would forever go down in infamy
The Stone Cold Era was about to begin
On Monday Night Raw, Vince McMahon introduced his special guest, boxing champion Mike Tyson, only to be interrupted as Stone Cold Steve Austin stomped into the ring to steal Tyson's thunder
Austin declared that Tyson did not belong in the WWE
Tyson tried to shake hands with Austin, but when Stone Cold refused, Tyson pushed him and set off a chaotic scuffle in the ring
Over the next few weeks, Tyson - now announced as the Special Enforcer for Stone Cold's match at WrestleMania - gave his allegiance to Shawn Michaels, Austin's opponent. When Austin and Michaels finally met at WrestleMania, the main event was a physical, back-and-forth match
Neither man could put his opponent away, but after the referee was knocked out accidentally, Stone Cold blocked Michael's attempt at Sweet Chin Music, and delivered the Stone Cold Stunner to the champ
At that moment, Tyson jumped into the ring, made the three count and declared Stone Cold Steve Austin as the new WWE Champion
When Michaels stood up to confront Tyson for betraying him, Tyson responded by flooring HBK with a single knockout punch
Stone Cold then left the ring with the WWE Championship on one arm and the other was raised in victory by Mike Tyson
The historic moment marked Stone Cold Steve Austin's arrival at the forefront of sports entertainment, and dawn of the Attitude Era in WWE
