LeBron James on Tuesday paid tribute to legendary WWE wrestler “Stone Cold” Steve Austin as fans of the “Texas Rattlesnake” honored him on March 16, otherwise known as “Austin 3:16 Day.”

March 16 is the day pro wrestling fans remember Austin for his rant after winning the 1996 King of the Ring tournament, famously saying, “Talk about your psalms, talk about John 3:16… Austin 3:16 says I just whipped your ass!”

The Los Angeles Lakers superstar was spotted wearing an Austin-inspired T-shirt with “LeBron 3:16” emblazoned across the front and the No. 23 imprinted on a skull on the back of the shirt before Tuesday’s game against the Minnesota Timberwolves.
