He's the beer-swilling Texas rattlesnake. Stone Cold is credited as one of the biggest superstars in WWE history, being at the forefront of countless memorable moments for several wrestling fans to enjoy. He has a very successful record, having won the most Royal Rumble matches and also being a multi-time WWE champion and King of the Ring winner. Stone Cold is seen as the badass babyface who never goes by the rules and does what he feels while making the hated figures a living hell. For years, he has illuminated the fans with his personality.

Austin debuted in World Championship Wrestling in 1991 as "Stunning" Steve Austin, initially managed by Vivacious Veronica. Almost immediately after Austin's debut, Lady Blossom became his valet. Austin defeated Bobby Eaton for the WCW World Television Championship on June 3, 1991, just weeks after his debut. In late 1991, Austin joined Paul E. Dangerously's Dangerous Alliance.

During his tenure in the WWE, he has been into several memorable bouts, including his unforgotten feud with owner Vince McMahon. They both had so much animosity between each other they have managed to be labeled as arch-nemeses or rivals. He's also had spats with other big timers such as Triple H, Kurt Angle, The Undertaker and of course, arguably his biggest opponent of all time to which they've headlined countless WrestleManias against one another, The Rock.

He retired as a regular in-ring performer in 2003 due to neck, ankle and knee injuries sustained throughout his career. However, he still makes occasional in-ring appearances, often to only perform his finishing move, the Stone Cold Stunner, normally followed by an extended beer drinking session punctuated by him slamming two beer cans together in a distinctive style then pouring the beer over his face. Austin had his first starring film role as Jack Conrad in the 2007 thriller The Condemned.

Austin is a six-time WWE Champion, the 1996 King of the Ring, and winner of the 1997, 1998 and 2001 Royal Rumbles, and is the only man in WWE history to win the Royal Rumble three times.

In this game, Austin is the only player to be able to choose what show he is on. Just like in real life, you will choose what show you want to be on, he will appear to choose the rival brand, and then deliver a Stone Cold Stunner to that manager. He will also give a stunner to your choice. However, he still joins that brand.

[edit] Trivia
