About Steve Austin

“Stone Cold” Steve Austin is a WWE Hall of Famer who has competed at a number of Royal Rumbles. Debuting in 1996, he has had arguably the largest impact of the wrestling business in the 1990s. His run from 1997 to 1999 saw the WWF (now WWE) turn their fortunes around and win The Monday Night War in a period of time known as the “Attitude Era”. His rivalries with Mr. McMahon, The Rock & Triple H (amongst others) are considered some of the best ever.

Steve Austin made a one-match return in 2022 at Wrestlemania 38, 20 years after he retired from the ring. He is known for his television work and media work nowadays.
