If I understand your question correctly, you are asking what stealing someone's thunder means.
Stealing someone's thunder is essentially upstaging someone, taking the focus from them and redirecting it to themselves.
The thunder refers to an accomplishment or situation where Person A should be the person in the spotlight, the one everyone is looking at. Stealing that thunder means that Person B does or says something that somehow diminishes Person A or Person A's accomplishment and redirects all the attention to Person B.
Totally agreeing with pippap here...it's simply outdoing someone or going better than someone.
If someone has a story that is captivating and draws everyone in...another person can tell a similar story only better...effectively stealing one's thunder!
