Steve Austin

Steve Austin (born Steven James Anderson on December 18, 1964), better known by his ring name "Stone Cold" Steve Austin, is a television actor, producer, and retired professional wrestler signed to WWE in a Legends deal. Austin wrestled for several wrestling promotions such as World Championship Wrestling (WCW), Extreme Championship Wrestling (ECW) and the World Wrestling Federation (WWF). Described by WWE (formerly WWF) chairman Vince McMahon as the most profitable wrestler in the company's history, he gained mainstream popularity in the WWF during the mid-1990s to the early 2000s as "Stone Cold" Steve Austin, a disrespectful, beer-drinking antihero who routinely defied the establishment and his boss Mr. McMahon. McMahon inducted Austin into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2009.
