Jim Ross Reveals How Stone Colds ‘What’ Chants Came About

November 30, 2021

If there is one thing that that is guaranteed during most wrestling shows, it is to get a few ‘What’ chants. The chants were made famous during the attitude era by Stone Cold Steve Austin and now we are getting the scoop on how it came about.

 on his latest Grilling JR podcast, Jim Ross says the whole thing started out as a rib on Christian. Austin incorporated it into his character from there

“That was derived from Christian calling Steve [Austin] on his cellphone while he was driving, and Steve would screw with Christian and say ‘what?’ like the signals were breaking up. That’s where the ‘what?’ came into play.”

Crowd chants will always be a part of wrestling and they can sometimes make or break a wrestler during a segment. The ‘What’ chant will go down in infamy with Austin’s name.
