Career And Professional Highlights

Best Known For…

Stone Cold is best known for 'King Of The Ring' of 1996, 'Wrestle Mania', and 'Raw'.

Stone Cold enrolled at Chris Adams school at the Dallas Sportatorium after deciding to pursue a career in wrestling. He paid around $45 for his first seminar. Tony Falk gave him his first lesson by calling the spots and guiding him to a pinfall and a $40 paycheck. Early professional influences in his life were Ric Flair, Dusty Rhodes, and the Von Erich family. When WCCW and the Continental Wrestling Association merged to form the United States Wrestling Association, Memphis booker Dutch Mantell changed the wrestler's identity to Steve Austin. To avoid confusion with a well-known wrestler at the time, Dr. Death Steve Williams, the name was changed. Austin eventually left for Dallas, managed by Percy Pringle, accompanied by Jeannie Adams, and engaged in conflict with Toni and Adams. In 1990, Austin departed the USWA.

Jeannie Adams, a.k.a. Lady Blossom, accompanied him when he arrived at WCW. On June 3, 1991, only a few weeks after making his professional wrestling debut match, Stone Cold won against Bobby Eaton to get his foremost WCW World Television Championship. Later in the year, Stone became a part of Paul E. Dangerously's Dangerous Alliance. On April 27, 1992, Barry Windham defeated Austin in the WCW World Television Championship. But he later won it back from Windham and had a second, protracted reign as champion. Austin then lost the title to Ricky Steamboat, and The Dangerous Alliance split up shortly after. In Terry Gordy's place, Stone Cold teamed up with Dr. Death Steve Williams at Halloween Havoc to compete against Dustin Rhodes and Windham.

Together with Brian Pillman, Austin founded the tag team The Hollywood Blonds in October 1992. After some time, Austin crossed Pillman and became a member of Colonel Robert Parker's Stud Stable. After losing to Ricky Steamboat in the Clash of the Champions XXV, Austin was supposed to meet him again at Fall Brawl. However, Steamboat was unable to compete due to a valid back ailment, therefore, Austin won the championship by luck. At the same time, the legacy of Hulk Hogan was starting to permeate WCW.

Paul Heyman, who managed Stone Cold in WCW, contacted him in 1995 on behalf of Extreme Championship Wrestling (ECW). Diesel and Jim Ross assisted in persuading WWF owner Vince McMahon to hire Austin, who then joined the organization in late 1995. He was scheduled to be one of the final four wrestlers in the ring during his pay-per-view (PPV) debut at the Royal Rumble. Austin was initially eliminated by Bret Hart during the 1997 Royal Rumble match, but the officials missed it. Austin then sneaked back into the ring and defeated Hart. Austin then joined Shawn Michaels because the Harts were a shared enemy of theirs. In the WWF Tag Team Championship, they won by defeating Owen Hart and The British Bulldog. This was his first championship in WWF history.

Austin was slated to compete against The Rock at WrestleMania in 2000. Austin's wife, Debra, was chosen by Vince McMahon to serve as The Rock's manager. Due to this, the tension between Austin and The Rock increased in the weeks preceding WrestleMania. The WrestleMania X-Seven match was changed to a no-disqualification contest. Austin received a steel chair from Vince McMahon after he intervened during the bout to stop The Rock from pinning him twice. The Rock was then repeatedly pounded by Austin with the chair before being pinned to win the WWF Championship for the fifth time.

In addition to preparing Austin for a fight with Brock Lesnar, The WWE rehired Eddie Guerrero in May 2002.

Austin was rehired by Linda McMahon as the co-general manager of Raw in 2003. Austin was fired from his role as co-general manager at Survivor Series. Before 2003 came to a close, Austin made a comeback by performing at 'Tribute To The Troops'. Before giving Mr. McMahon and John Cena a Stone Cold Stunner, he pretended to be Santa Claus.

Austin and Bradshaw were engaged in a competition on March 18, 2006. On April 1, 2006, Austin honored Bret Hart with an induction into the WWE Hall of Fame.

He has made appearances on 'Dilbert' and 'VIP'. In the 2005 adaptation of 'The Longest Yard', he made his acting debut as Guard Dunham in a supporting role. He had an appearance in the 2007 action movie 'The Condemned'. Besides this, he has also acted in 'The Expendables', 'Damage', 'The Stranger,' 'Maximum Conviction,' 'Tactical Force,' 'Recoil', 'Knockout', and 'The Package'.
