Who is Stone Cold Steve Austin?

Steve Austin, better known by his ring name "Stone Cold" Steve Austin, is an American actor, producer, and retired professional wrestler. Austin performed for several wrestling promotions such as World Championship Wrestling, Extreme Championship Wrestling and the World Wrestling Federation. Declared by WWE chairman Vince McMahon to be the most profitable wrestler in the company's history, he gained mainstream popularity in the WWF in the late 1990s as "Stone Cold" Steve Austin, a disrespectful, beer-drinking antihero who routinely defied the establishment and his boss Mr. McMahon. This persona of Austin's has been described as the "poster boy for the WWF's Attitude Era and is also widely considered one of the greatest and most popular professional wrestlers of all time."

Austin held 21 championships throughout his professional wrestling career, and is a 6-time WWF Champion as well as the fifth Triple Crown Champion. He was also the winner of the 1996 King of the Ring tournament, as well as the 1997, 1998 and 2001 Royal Rumbles. He was forced to retire from in ring competition in 2003, due to a series of knee and neck injuries. Throughout the rest of 2003 and 2004, he was featured as the Co-General Manager and "Sheriff" of Raw. Since 2005, he has continued to make occasional appearances, and was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2009 by Vince McMahon. In 2011, Steve Austin returned to WWE to host the reboot of the reality series Tough Enough.
