Career

Steve Austin finally joined ‘WCW’ and adopted the nickname “Stunning.” He made his ‘WCW’ debut in 1991, where he defeated Bobby Eaton and won his first ‘WCW World Television Championship.’ He joined Paul E’s ‘The Dangerous Alliance,’ which disbanded within a few months. After defending his title for a while, Austin lost it to Ricky Steamboat.
In 1993, he became the tag-team partner of Brian Pillman and called their team ‘The Hollywood Blonds.’ They also won the ‘WCW Tag Team Championship’ and held the title for five months. Steve turned heel on Pillman after the latter returned from an injury at ‘Clash of the Champions XXV.’ He then won the ‘WCW United States Heavyweight Championship.’
Steve Austin lost the title to Jim Duggan and was soon fired by the ‘WCW’ vice president Eric Bischoff who did not consider him a remarkable wrestler. He joined the ‘Extreme Championship Wrestling’ (ECW) in 1995, where he developed his future “Stone Cold” persona and also learnt how to cut a promo.
Steve Austin credits Paul Heyman for his skills to cut a promo. He also adopted Mikey Whipwreck’s finishing move, the “Whipper-Snapper,” and later popularised it as the “Stone Cold Stunner.” He exited from the ‘ECW’ to join the ‘WWF.’ He made his ‘WWF’ debut on January 8, 1996, on ‘Raw,’ where he was awarded the ‘Million Dollar Championship.’
He had his debut match on January 15, against Matt Hardy. The match ended in Hardy’s defeat.
Steve Austin started wrestling as “The Ringmaster,” but later shaved his head, grew a goatee, and adopted the name “Stone Cold.” In 1996, Austin won the ‘King of the Ring’ match against Jake “The Snake” Roberts. The phrase ‘Austin 3:16’ used in his promo against Jake set the beginning of the ‘Attitude Era,’ which put him on the road to superstardom. His feud with the Hart family was one of his longest-running feuds.
The feud began with Austin challenging and taunting Bret Hart for a bout, which Hart eventually accepted. They had several bouts, but the submission match at ‘Wrestlemania 13’ was memorable.
Hart defeated Steve Austin, who passed out while Hart pulled a sharpshooter on him. Although he bled profusely, Austin refused to take any assistance to his locker room. He also entered into a feud with Owen Hart later. He got a chance to win the ‘WWF Tag Team Championship’ and the ‘Intercontinental Championship.’
However, due to an injury, he had to give up both the championships. His other famous feuds were with Vince McMahon, The Rock, and Triple H. These clashes helped him win four federation championships, along with several other titles.
His last official match took place at ‘Wrestlemania XIX’ in 2003, against The Rock. He lost the match to The Rock. He was fired by Eric Bischoff on the next episode of ‘Raw’ as part of the storyline. However, Austin announced his retirement on ‘WWE’ the very next day. He accepted that he had pushed his body against his doctor’s advice.
From 2003 to 2004, he slipped into his non-wrestling role as the “Sheriff” of ‘Raw.’ After being on and off the screen for a while, Austin finally parted ways with ‘WWE.’ His last appearance was in January 2018, on ‘Raw’s 25th anniversary. He performed a “Stone Cold Stunner” on Vince McMahon and Shane McMahon.
