Stone Cold Steve Austin has pretty much done it all. He’s held 25 championships in his pro wrestling career, is a 6-time WWF Champion — and the fifth Triple Crown Champion — winner of the 1996 King of the Ring tournament (where he coined the infamous “Austin 3:16” catchphrase), won the 1997 (technically), 1998 and 2001 Royal Rumbles, a WWE Hall of Fame inductee in 2009, and an accomplished action movie/television star. But if you’re jones-ing for some new content from the Texas Rattlesnake and the classic matches aren’t cutting it, you should really, REALLY subscribe to his podcast, “The Steve Austin Show“, straight from the Broken Skull Ranch.
On the podcast, Austin talks about practically anything and everything that pops into his brain, ranging from recent personal events, his past adventures, current events, celebrity friends (from the small screen, silver screen and the ‘not-quite-a-screen’ pro wrestling ring), and essentially ANYTHING else; it’s possible Steve has something to say about it.
Below is the blog post from Austin that announced the inception of Steve-weisers, middle fingers and “What?” chants that would become a podcast. Of course, you should read it in Austin’s trademark voice:
Well, sonofabitch…It has been awhile since I wrote a blog, that’s for sure. So then I’ll jump right into the story…
Bout a year ago I thought about doing a podcast. And well, a year goes by and I haven’t done a GD thing…And my manager calls me up and says “Hey man, do you have any interest in doing a podcast?” I said “You damn right I do”. So the wheels were put in motion to get this show started.
To keep it simple I figgered I’d call it the Steve Austin Show. Pretty fuckin original and straight to the point.
Ok…So we got a name for the show. How long is it? And how often do you record the show? The show will start out at 30 minutes, give or take a few. And a new show will air once a week.
Well, what’s the show about, Einstein? Good question. The show will basically consist of me talking about current issues or events going on in the world and offering my expert opinion and commentary on said issues and events. I’ll have guests on the show from time to time in the studio or on the phone. I’ll interview folks from different walks of life that I find interesting. Hell, at any given time it could turn into a 30 minute bullshit session about life, hunting, pro wrestling, MMA, physical fitness, movies, beer…Anything. I will also send out a heads up via Twitter (@steveaustinBSR) when I will ask you guys for subject matter to talk about on the show. You can ask questions and I’ll provide some answers. I will also from time to time provide a phone number for you to call and we will talk on the show.
I am looking forward to starting the show this week. As with anything in life, it will be a work in progress. I don’t want to layout any specific format for the show right now and say “This is what the show is”. The pieces will fall into place and we’ll ride along and see what happens. That’s the way my brain works, anyway.
I will be providing updates on Twitter. The Steve Austin Show is around the corner. Stay tuned.
And that’s the bottom line, ’cause Stone Cold Said So!!!
