“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.”
