“Stone Cold” Steve Austin is known for a lot of things. He’s a six-time WWE champion, was a gueststar on Nash Bridges several times, and he might be the only person to pull off a Stone Cold Stunner on two members of the potential Trump administration, former WWE exec Linda MacMahon and that reality TV game show host who won the presidency last month, President-elect Donald Trump.

To say he’s had quite a career is an understatement. But one night in Japan, he was off his game.

On his podcast, The Steve Austin Show — Unleashed, Stone Cold sat down with Mark Yeats, a former WWE official, and beer guy for Stone Cold. What does that mean? It was Mark’s responsibility to throw Austin his celebratory cold one.

The podcast was filled with gems, from the beer Stone Cold drank was real to Austin getting a slight buzz in the ring. But the real money is “Stone Cold” talking about the 115 beer he went through in a Japan beer bash.

”Were you in Japan the time we did the beer bash with the Dudleys and Stacy Keibler? .... We went through 115 beers that night [in Japan], and that was the most I ever went through. And a lot of people said ‘hey man, was that real beer?’ And I say yes, it was always real beer… except for the one time. We were in Montreal, I think it was Sunday, something like that. Whatever it was, or maybe it was against the rules of the building, but it was NA beer, non-alcohol. And so all of a sudden those pictures start making the rounds and people are thinking ‘oh they’re throwing this guy non-alcohol beer.’ … that was one time.”

The Texas rattlesnake was the real deal. Check out the full interview over at Podcast One.

One of the world’s most popular wrestlers, The Undertaker made his return to the ring last night on the 900th episode of WWE SmackDown, despite hopes that this 51-year-old sports entertainer had retired.

The Undertaker, who has been MIA since Wrestlemania 32, entered the squared circle to deliver what many believe to be the announcement of a full-blown comeback, and not the announcement many hoped for: That he’d be trading the tights for gold clubs and moving to Florida. That's right, the 51-year-old will continue to put his life and health on the line for wrestling fans.

Rather, the Deadman himself, instead of just resting in peace because, well, wrestling is a pretty strenuous and dangerous profession for a 51-year-old, made an announcement that hints at multiple roles with in the organization, particularly a match at Survivor Series this Sunday.

“WrestleMania will no longer define who I am. I’m back, taking souls, and digging holes. Survivor Series was where the Undertaker was born, and SmackDown has always been my home.
Now, that brings me to the second reason I’m out here. At this year’s Survivor Series, there’s no reason to fear failure. But if you fail, if you fail, you will have reason to fear the Deadman. Team Raw better rest in peace.”

It looks like we’re going to be seeing a lot more of the Undertaker, even though it would probably be better for wrestling fans and the wrestler if he would just call it a day.

This fight night was put on to raise money for Charity Vision, which Mitt Romney's son is president of. That explains why Romney was there to show his support but it doesn't entirely offer an explanation to why he dressed up as Nacho Libre and went into the ring.

The main event featured Oscar De La Hoya and Mario Lopez but they were interrupted by two masked luchadores. Those luchadores were then interrupted by Nacho Libre, who turned out to actually be Mitt Romney in disguise? 

Last time this event took place, Mitt Romney entered the ring in a boxing match with Evander Holyfield so this time he had to step it up a notch.

T
his seems to be the first time Ryan has tried this move. According to an interview with Vice Sports, the inspiration for this unique finishing move came from the other wrestler in the video, Danshoku Dino.

Wrestling may not be real, but Shark Boy is. The intreped ocean dweller was essential in the capture of a peeping tom in his own neighborhood. He didn't pull any of his signature moves on the criminal, but he did keep an eye on him until the police arrived to ensure his capture. 

If you want to know more about this mysterious hero, just watch this video:

He's clearly been through a lot already.

Here's a nice, heart-warming moment to help restore your faith in humanity.

At IWA Midsouth's "Big Ass Christmas Bash" last week in Indiana, wrestler Ace Perry had a surprise for his number one fan Amanda.

The high school junior who has autism, has been to every one of his matches and has even reached out to him on Facebook.

So when he asked her if she would go to prom with him, she was – of course – ecstatic.

Connor Michelek first met his favorite wrestler Daniel Bryan back in 2012 after his family posted a video on YouTube. The two met and instantly bonded. They kept in touch over the next two years.

Fast forward two years to 2014. Before WrestleMania 30 on April 6, Connor Michalek and Daniel Bryan shared a special moment with all of the WWE stars.

Sadly, Connor died on April 25 following a long battle with pediatric brain cancer.

"Connor was special for a million reasons," Daniel Bryan said. "His smile. He was so quick witted. He was nice to everybody but sometimes brutally honest. You couldn't help but talk to him and instantly fall in love with him."
