Austin was enraged by the way that he was fired from WCW, via phone call by Bischoff.


Extreme Championship Wrestling

In 1995, Steve Austin was fired by WCW Vice President Eric Bischoff, after suffering an injury, while wrestling on a Japanese tour. Bischoff and WCW didn't see Austin as a 'marketable' wrestler. Eventually, Austin was contacted by Paul Heyman, who had managed him in WCW. Heyman told Austin that since he had a TV show and Austin had a grievance, it would be a good opportunity to go on ECW television to air it. While in ECW, Steve Austin used the platform to develop his future "Stone Cold" persona as well as a series of vignettes running down WCW in general and Bischoff in particular, referring to WCW's flagship program as "Monday NyQuil, where the big boys play with each other."

1995-1997

In late 1995, Austin joined the World Wrestling Federation (WWF). Initially, Austin used the moniker "The Ringmaster," and managed by Ted DiBiase, who awarded him with his "Million Dollar Championship Belt." The Ringmaster defeated Savio Vega at WrestleMania XII.[4] Austin shaved his head bald, a look he has maintained since. At In Your House 8: Beware of Dog, Austin lost a "Caribbean Strap Match" to Savio Vega. In accordance to the pre-match stipulations, DiBiase was forced to leave the WWF, giving Austin the opportunity to forge his own path.[5] He would later tell announcer Dok Hendrix he purposely lost the match in order to rid himself of his manager.

Austin's genuine rise to superstardom began on June 23, 1996 in Milwaukee, where the 1996 King of The Ring pay-per-view took place. Austin was taught his most ruthless move in wrestling history, the Stone Cold Stunner, which was taught to him by Michael Hayes. With this new technique he won the King of the Ring tournament, receiving the push originally intended for Hunter Hearst Helmsley. After toppling Marc Mero in the semi-finals, Austin defeated Jake "The Snake" Roberts in the final.[6] After the match, Austin cut a promo during his coronation, telling Roberts:[7] is the 174th day of the year (175th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

Austin had midcard feuds with Yokozuna and Hunter Hearst Helmsley. Austin spoke about Bret Hart constantly and taunted him relentlessly on TV (one quote had Austin saying "If you put the letter 'S' in front of 'Hitman', you have my exact opinion of Bret Hart"). Hart finally accepted Austin's challenge and returned to the WWF in October 1996. At Survivor Series 1996, Hart pinned Austin in a match which helped create the foundations for the eventual intense year-long feud between the two.[8] The match came hot on the heels of a highly controversial incident broadcast live on RAW, which saw Austin "break into" Brian Pillman's house, with Pillman holding a gun.

1997 Royal Rumble match. He was originally eliminated by Bret Hart, but the officials did not see it, and he sneaked back into the ring and eliminated Hart.[9] This would lead to the first-ever pay-per-view main event of Austin's WWF career at In Your House 13: Final Four, which due to real-life events largely revolving around Shawn Michaels, the match would be for the suddenly vacant WWF Championship. Austin would be eliminated from the 4-way match early after injuring his knee, but was involved in the finish which saw Bret Hart win his 4th WWF Title,[10] which Hart lost the next night on RAW to Sycho Sid due to Austin's interference, leading to the continuation of their feud.

At WrestleMania 13 in March 1997, Hart defeated Austin in a Submission match that involved Ken Shamrock as special referee. During the match Austin was busted open. In the end Hart refused to release his patented Sharpshooter since Austin had refused to give up. The match ended in Austin passing out due to blood loss.

After his feud with Bret Hart, he had a WWF Championship shot against The Undertaker, at In Your House 15: A Cold Day In Hell. Austin had the Undertaker down with the stunner, but due to distraction from Brian Pillman, Undertaker nailed Austin with a Tombstone Piledriver and got the victory.[12] For the Combichrist song, see Everybody Hates You Mark Calaway (born March 24, 1965[2][3]) is an American professional wrestler, better known by the ring name The Undertaker. ...

Austin also had a brief tag team runs with both Shawn Michaels and Mick Foley where he would get his first taste at WWF gold when he won the WWF Tag Team Championship. Then Austin challenged Bret Hart's younger brother, Owen Hart. The sight of a handcuffed Austin being led out of the arena by "policemen" while giving the finger - the "Stone Cold Salute" - to the fans is one of the resounding images of his career. After Owen pinned Austin in a 10-man tag match at In Your House: Canadian Stampede,[13] Austin wanted to gain revenge on Owen and challenged him for his Intercontinental Championship at SummerSlam 1997.

In that match Austin suffered a near-career ending neck injury as a result of a botched Hart Driver by Owen Hart.[14] Austin's head was seen to be six to eight inches lower than the safe level for a piledriver, and as a result Austin was actually driven into the ground head first, taking the full force of his body weight into his neck. After being briefly paralyzed, Austin recovered and was able to win the match and the Intercontinental Title as planned, but the incident would force him to take time off for surgery in 1997. During that match, after realizing that Austin was hurt, Owen bought some time for Austin, prancing around the ring claiming Austin was going to "kiss his ass." This injury was played up on WWF TV afterwards, to explain why Austin did not wrestle for several months forcing him to forfeit the Intercontinental Championship. During this time, though, Austin was kept on television by way of vignettes and being an anti-authority nuisance to WWF officials during in-ring interviews, with all segments ending with the offending party receiving a stunner. It was during this time that Austin had forfeited the Intercontinental Title, which was then won in a tournament by Owen Hart. Hart became champion thanks to interference from Austin, who whacked Faarooq, the other finalist, with the belt. For the month that followed, Austin began interfering in Hart's title matches, usually Stunning Hart's opponents, all in a crusade to ensure that Hart would not lose the Intercontinental Championship before Austin could take it from him.

At Survivor Series 1997, Austin got his shot. Owen Hart would walk into Montreal's Molson Centre wearing a T-Shirt mocking Austin's "3:16" moniker: "Owen 9:11" and the back said "I Just Broke Your Neck." Owen would lose the WWF Intercontinental Championship that night again to Stone Cold.[15] Austin never harbored a grudge against Hart for injuring him.[citation needed] After winning the Intercontinental Title back from Owen, Austin briefly feuded with The Rock over the belt. This would be the first time the two men would cross paths in the WWF and marked the beginning of their bitter feud. This portion of their feud would end with The Rock winning the Intercontinental Title in December 1997 due to the fact that Austin forfeited the title while immediately declaring his intent to go after the WWF Title. He stunned The Rock and McMahon before taking the IC belt back before it could be presented to The Rock and proceeding to throw the belt off a bridge.

1998-1999

With Bret Hart's departure, Austin was clearly the top superstar in the company, and after managing to ruffle the feathers of every other WWF superstar, he entered and won the 1998 Royal Rumble, lastly eliminating The Rock.[16] The next night on RAW, Austin interrupted Vince McMahon in his presentation of a special appearance by Mike Tyson over the objection of McMahon referring to Tyson as "the baddest man on the planet" Austin gave Tyson the double-bird (two middle fingers) which led to Tyson shoving Austin and the two needed to be separated, much to McMahon's embarrassment, who began to publicly disapprove of the prospect of Austin as his champion. Tyson would later be announced to be "the special enforcer" for the main event at WrestleMania XIV, although he also appeared to be aligning himself with WWF Champion Shawn Michaels' stable D-Generation X. This led to his WWF Championship match against Michaels at WrestleMania XIV where he won his first WWF Championship with help from Mike Tyson, who ended up double-crossing DX by making the deciding three-count against Michaels. This victory ushered in the Austin Era, and with it, the Attitude Era.[17] Royal Rumble 1998 was the eleventh annual Royal Rumble professional wrestling pay-per-view event from the World Wrestling Federation. ...

On the RAW after Austin won the WWF Title, Vince McMahon presented him with a new title belt and warned Austin that he didn't approve of his rebellious nature and warned Austin that things could be done "the easy way or the hard way." Austin gave his answer in the form of another stunner. This led to a segment a week later where Austin had pledged a few days prior in a meeting to "play ball" with McMahon, appearing in a suit, tie and loafers, with a beaming McMahon taking a picture of himself and his new corporate champion. The entire thing was a ruse by Austin who in the course of the segment proceeded to tear off the suit, tell McMahon it was the last time he'd see Austin dressed like this, punched his boss in the "corporate grapefruits" and took another picture of the two of them while McMahon was doubled over in pain.

In April 1998, it appeared the WWF fans would finally get to see Stone Cold and Vince McMahon battle out their differences in an actual match, but the match was declared a no contest when Dude Love made an appearance. This led to a match between Dude Love and Austin at Over The Edge: In Your House for the WWF Championship. Austin managed to retain the title despite McMahon acting as the referee and his "Corporate Stooges" Gerald Brisco and Pat Patterson as timekeeper and ring announcer respectively.

McMahon continued to do everything he could to ruin Austin, and he finally scored a big victory for his side at the 1998 King of the Ring tournament. There, Stone Cold lost the WWF Championship to Kane in a First Blood Match (in which no one could tell if Kane was bleeding or not because of the mask.). McMahon could not savor the victory for long. Stone Cold further infuriated his nemesis by winning back the championship the next night on RAW. Stone Cold emerged victorious against The Undertaker at SummerSlam 1998. Mr. McMahon set up a triple threat match at Breakdown: In Your House, where The Undertaker and Kane pinned Austin at the same time.

Mr. McMahon decided to vacate the WWF Championship and award it based on a match between the Undertaker and Kane, in which Austin was the guest referee. Austin refused to count for either man and attacked both towards the end of the match. Mr. McMahon later fired The Rattlesnake, although Austin got a measure of revenge by kidnapping McMahon and dragging him to the middle of the ring at "gunpoint," which ended up being a toy gun with a scroll that read "Bang! 3:16." Stone Cold was later re-signed by Shane McMahon. With Austin back, there was a Survivor Series tournament to award the vacant WWF Championship. In the semifinals against Mankind, Austin lost to him, thanks to a double-cross by Shane. The next night on RAW, Judge Mills Lane ruled that the Rock had to defend his just won WWF Championship against Austin that night. The Undertaker interfered and hit Austin with a shovel, earning Austin a disqualification victory. At Rock Bottom: In Your House, Steve Austin defeated The Undertaker in a Buried Alive match after Kane tombstoned (reverse-piledriver) Undertaker into the grave.

The Rattlesnake’s next definitive chance to exact revenge from Mr. McMahon came during the 1999 Royal Rumble match. On RAW, McMahon drew Austin's entry number with the obvious intention of screwing him over. Stone Cold drew entry No. 1 , while McMahon drew No. 2 thanks to WWF Commissioner Shawn Michaels. During the Rumble match, McMahon slipped out of the ring and into the crowd as Austin chased him down. It would turn out to be a trap as McMahon led Austin into the lobby restroom where he was ambushed by members of the Corporation. Austin was injured and taken away in an ambulance. With Stone Cold gone and not in the Rumble Match, Vince joined the announce table in calling the match. Later on however, Austin returned in an ambulance and re-entered the Royal Rumble. After Austin stunnered the Big-Bossman and eliminated him it was back to just him and Mr. McMahon. With the assistance of the Corporation and a last minute interference from The Rock, Stone Cold was eliminated by McMahon himself and Vince would win the 1999 Royal Rumble, in one of the biggest upsets in WWF history. With McMahon turning down his number-one contender spot against The Rock, WWF Commissioner Shawn Michaels awarded Austin the title shot during RAW the next night. Royal Rumble 1999 was the twelfth annual Royal Rumble professional wrestling pay-per-view event from the World Wrestling Federation. ...


"You checked yourself out of the main-event at WrestleMania, and Stone Cold Steve Austin has been checked in!!" Stone Cold would put up his number-one contender spot for the title if Vince would accept his challenge at the next pay-per-view. McMahon accepted.


At St. Valentine’s Day Massacre, Stone Cold got a one-on-one match against Mr. McMahon in a steel cage, with the WWF championship opportunity at WrestleMania XV at stake. During the match, Big Show made his shocking debut, breaking through from under the ring and attacking Stone Cold. But Show’s attack propelled Stone Cold into the side of the cage forcing the cage to give way and dropping Austin to the floor first, making him the victor. Stone Cold made the most of his chance, defeating "The Corporate Champion" The Rock at WrestleMania XV for his third WWF Championship.

Austin would face The Rock in a rematch at the following Pay-per-view, Backlash, in which Shane McMahon was the referee. During the match, Mr. McMahon approached the ring, only to hand Austin back his Smoking Skull belt, and then take his son out of the proceedings. Austin would win the match when another referee made the count. The Undertaker won the WWF Championship from Austin at Over The Edge. Due to events revolving around Vince McMahon, Stephanie and Linda McMahon made Stone Cold the Chief Executive Officer of the company. Vince and Shane McMahon challenged Austin to a Handicap Ladder Match at King of the Ring with the CEO title on the line, which the duo of father and son would win. However, the next night on RAW, Austin made it clear that while he was the CEO of the company, he could have a title shot at any time and place to be determined by himself. Austin would make the WWF Championship match that night on RAW in Charlotte, North Carolina. Austin defeated The Undertaker to win his fourth WWF Championship.

Austin would hold on to the Championship belt until SummerSlam 1999 when he lost it to Mankind in a Triple Threat Match also featuring Triple H. By Survivor Series 1999, Triple H was champion, and Austin was supposed to get his chance to reclaim gold in a Triple Threat Match which featured Austin, Triple H and The Rock. Instead, he was run down by a car in the parking lot. What followed was neck surgery by Dr. Lloyd Youngblood and a nine-month rehabilitation with the car angle his reason for leaving: in reality, Austin's neck surgery was a long time coming dating back to the Owen Hart incident in 1997.

In April of 2000 at Backlash 2000, Austin appeared during the main event, attacking Triple H and Vince McMahon, helping The Rock reclaim the WWF Championship. At Unforgiven 2000, Austin made his official return from surgery and tried to find out who ran him down at Survivor Series the previous year. Rikishi finally admitted to being the driver.

At No Mercy 2000, Austin was back to annihilate Rikishi, but in the process of beating him down, Stone Cold learned that it was actually Triple H behind the whole scheme, devised to shield the WWF Championship from Austin and end his career. At Survivor Series 2000, Triple H had plotted to run Austin down again (thus repeating the events of the previous year's Survivor Series) but his plot failed when Austin lifted Triple H's automobile with a forklift, then let it drop 30 feet.

Austin won his third Royal Rumble in January 2001[18], last eliminating Kane. His rivalry against Triple H ended at No Way Out 2001 in a 3 Stages of Hell match (a regular match, a streetfight, then a cage match), with Triple H beating Austin 2 falls to 1. Then, at WrestleMania X-Seven, Austin made a heel turn, by hitting The Rock with a steel chair to win the WWF Championship. After the match Austin shook hands and shared a beer with Vince McMahon. With the victory, Austin became a five-time WWF Champion. The next night on RAW, after teasing a quick face turn, the heel turn continued. During a cage match with The Rock in a rematch for the title, Triple H came down to the ring with a sledgehammer. Many thought he was coming to aid The Rock, due to the hatred between Austin and Triple H (and an argument with Vince earlier in the night), but it transpired that he had joined the Austin/McMahon partnership by hitting The Rock instead.

The WWF positioned Austin and Triple H as the top heels in the company and had them feud with Undertaker and Kane for April and May 2001. After defeating Kane and Undertaker for the WWF Tag Team Titles at Backlash 2001, they held the Tag Team Titles, the WWF Championship (Austin), and the WWF Intercontinental Championship (Triple H) all at once.

The glory would be short lived, however. At the next pay-per-view, Judgment Day, Triple H lost his Intercontinental Title against Kane. Then on May 21, 2001, Austin and Triple H faced off against Chris Jericho and Chris Benoit with the Tag Team Titles on the line. The match was going along without a hitch until a spot midway through where Triple H tore his quadriceps muscle. The team would lose the Tag Team Titles at the end of the match, as was planned, but the injury to Triple H (which would keep him out for the remainder of the year) forced WWF to go in another direction.

Steve Austin was paired with Kurt Angle and feuded against Jericho and Benoit. This culminated with a triple threat match at King of the Ring, in which Austin faced the former tag team champions (who had just been dethroned by The Dudley Boyz three days earlier). In a match which saw all three men beat each other severely and eventual outside interference from WCW's Booker T, Austin scored the victory and retained his championship.

As soon as July 2001 began, with Benoit out for surgery, the Austin/Jericho feud was dropped without a mention. With Triple H out and The Rock still away making movies, the WWF desperately rushed out the plans for The Invasion. The InVasion was a professional wrestling storyline in the World Wrestling Federation that began shortly after the WWFs purchase of World Championship Wrestling. ...


As The Invasion storyline began and progressed, Vince McMahon had been begging for Stone Cold to return to his old Texas Rattlesnake persona. Austin refused though, as he was developing into a more comedic character. But the week before the InVasion Pay-per-view, the old Stone Cold Steve Austin "returned," delivering stunners to the Alliance members. This was all part of a swerve at the event, where Austin betrayed the WWF team and partner Kurt Angle to help the Alliance win, as Austin assumed leadership of the group. Invasion (sometimes typeset InVasion or alternatively billed as Invasion: WCW/ECW vs. ...


Austin lost and regained his title in a feud with Kurt Angle that many fans enjoyed, partially due to Angle being put over by Austin as a legitimate threat. Austin lost the title to Kurt Angle at Unforgiven 2001 before regaining it on the October 8, 2001 episode of RAW. As the Invasion angle dragged on, it was ultimately decided to bring the plot line to an end with Austin and a group of ECW and WCW wrestlers facing The Rock and a group of WWF wrestlers at that year's Survivor Series. Austin and his team lost and that was the end of the Invasion angle. Austin would hold the WWF Championship for another month before losing it to Chris Jericho at Vengeance 2001. Jericho beat both The Rock and Austin consecutively in that night winning the WCW World Title and later the WWF Title and combining them to create the WWF Undisputed Championship.

2002-2003

By 2002, Austin's spot as top face in the WWF was not as secure as it had been in previous years, as Triple H was set to return from injury. At the time, Vince McMahon had re-signed Hulk Hogan, Scott Hall and Kevin Nash for a storyline that would bring the nWo back. They feuded with Austin and The Rock. Austin was originally intended to be the one to challenge Hogan at WrestleMania, but because of their inability to agree on a finish, Austin refused, and The Rock took his place, where Hogan was able to successfully steal the crowd from his opponent. At WrestleMania X8 Austin defeated Scott Hall in a dream match instead. Austin took a week long break following WrestleMania, refusing to show up for the following night's RAW.

Austin returned on the April 1, 2002 episode of RAW, the first of the new "brand extension" era. The show was centered on which show he would sign with. Ultimately, he chose RAW. Austin's last appearance was on June 3, 2002, when he defeated Ric Flair in a match where Flair would become Austin's servant. The angle wasn't furthered because Austin had decided to walk out again on bad storylines that were presented to him by the creative team.

Bored and run down, Austin began to create problems backstage as the WWF rehired Eddie Guerrero for Austin to feud with, while prepping Austin for a feud with Brock Lesnar. However, Austin was vetoing any matches that would result in him losing and ultimately walked out of the company when the writing staff wanted Austin to lose to Brock Lesnar. This act was at first viewed as unprofessional and in a negative light by fans. Austin later explained that he thought hot-shotting a victory did no favors to either side, as it made Austin look weak losing to a rookie, and didn't give Lesnar a proper stage for such a big win over a star of the magnitude that Austin holds.

Austin later publicly stated that at the time, his anti-social attitude behind the scenes were the result of him dealing with chronic knee and neck injuries that had never properly healed. Further fanning the flames amongst Austin's growing number of detractors was a well-publicized domestic dispute incident between Austin and his wife Debra, which led to his evasion of the police. Austin served probation time for the offense, and has not discussed it publicly since.

Austin's final match against The Rock at WrestleMania XIX.

In February 2003, he returned to WWE at No Way Out in a short match against Eric Bischoff. Austin was finally defeated by The Rock at WrestleMania XIX, which would ultimately become his last official match in WWE to date. The night after on RAW, Bischoff "fired" Austin on medical grounds, however he was brought back by Linda McMahon as the "Co-General Manager" for RAW. The move to the role of "Co-General Manager" was a way to keep Austin on-camera while limiting Austin's in-ring performance. On the November 17, 2003 edition of RAW, Austin was "fired" from RAW as the result of a stipulation in a match at Survivor Series 2003 where Austin's hand-picked team of wrestlers failed to beat Eric Bischoff's team of wrestlers. Austin quickly returned to WWE television before the end of 2003, when he was part of a WWE Christmas special taped live in front of U.S. troops in Iraq, posing as Santa Claus and stunning Mr. McMahon. He finally came back on RAW on December 29, 2003 as its "Sheriff."

2004-2005

Austin appeared on and off as 2004 began, culminating in him being the special guest referee for the match between Brock Lesnar and Goldberg at WrestleMania XX. Then, on April 17 2004, WWE put out a press release on their website claiming that Steve Austin and WWE were unable to settle long-running contract disputes and had again parted ways. This was reportedly over a contract dispute about WWE's control of Austin's non-WWE projects, such as movies. Austin could thus no longer use "Stone Cold" to promote himself, as that name is trademarked by WWE. Austin had to correct many people in interviews to ensure they did not refer to him by that moniker. Another issue that may have influenced WWE in its decision is Austin's recent history of domestic violence incidents, which WWE saw as tarnishing their popular image. Steve Austin made his first appearance on WWE TV in a year on April 3, 2005 at WrestleMania 21. Austin was interviewed by "Rowdy" Roddy Piper in a "Piper's Pit" segment and then Stone Cold stunned both Piper and Carlito. Austin appeared at the WWE-promoted ECW One Night Stand 2005.

At WWE Homecoming in October, Austin again returned to RAW, delivering Stunners to all four members of the McMahon family. An angle including Jim Ross being fired led to a match in which Austin agreed to face Ross's replacement, Jonathan Coachman, at Taboo Tuesday, with the stipulation of Ross regaining his announcing job if Austin were to win, and Austin losing his own job if he lost the match. Austin balked at the decision for Coachman to win, however, and once again walked out on the company after storyline disagreements. To explain away his failure to appear at Taboo Tuesday Vince McMahon said on RAW that Austin had been involved in an accident, thus preventing him from competing. A substitution for Austin was made in the form of Batista, who faced the Coach along with Vader and Goldust, who was brought in to generate some last minute interest in the match. The stipulation was dropped due to Austin not competing. WWE Homecoming was the first edition of WWE RAW to be aired on the USA Network after being aired for five years on Spike TV.
