Early Life: 

Steven James Anderson was born in Austin, Texas on December 18, 1964. He later changed his name to Steven James Williams, adopting his stepfather’s surname, but is better known as Stone Cold Steve Austin in the ring. When he was about a year old, his parents, James and Beverly Anderson (née Harrison), divorced. Later, his mother moved to Edna, Texas, where she married Ken Williams in 1968. He is the eldest of four siblings, the other three being brothers and one being a sister. He attended Wharton County Junior College on a football scholarship after graduating from Edna High School before receiving a full scholarship to the University of North Texas.

Wrestling Career | Stone Cold Steve Austin Net Worth: 

After deciding to become a wrestler, Austin enrolled in the Dallas Sportatorium, where he was trained by Chris Adams. Adams instructed him in technical moves but did not instruct him in kayfabe or business. Tony Falk, the referee in his 1989 televised World Class Championship Wrestling (WCCW) debut match against Frogman LeBlanc, taught him about those aspects of wrestling. He began by using his given name.

When the WCCW merged with the Continental Wrestling Association (CWA) to form the United States Wrestling Association, Memphis booker Dutch Mantell gave him the name Steve Austin (USWA). The main reason for his name change was to avoid confusion with “Dr. Death” Steve Williams, a popular wrestler at the time.

Austin left the USWA in 1990 and joined World Champion Wrestling (WCW) the following year. When his ‘good guy’ persona didn’t work, he adopted the moniker ‘Stunning Steve Austin.’ In 1991, he made his World Championship Wrestling (WCW) debut.

Austin’s valet was Vivacious Veronica, who was later replaced by Jeannie Adams, also known as “Lady Blossom.” Austin won his first WCW World Television Championship against Bobby Eaton on June 3, 1991, and joined Paul E. Dangerously’ Dangerous Alliance.

On April 27, 1992, he lost the WCW World Television Championship to Barry Windham, but regained it on May 23, the same year, and enjoyed a long reign as champion before losing it to Ricky Steamboat on September 2. The Dangerous Alliance disbanded soon after.

Austin and Brian Pillman formed The Hollywood Blonds, a tag team, in January 1993. On March 3, their team won the unified NWA and WCW World Tag Team Championship, which they held for five months.

He would win the WCW United States Heavyweight Championship twice, once in December 1993 and again in August 1994, when his opponent Ricky Steamboat was unable to wrestle due to a back injury.

However, he only held the title for a few minutes before being dethroned by Steamboat’s replacement, Jim Duggan, in a match that lasted only 35 seconds. WCW Vice President Eric Bischoff fired Austin in June 1995 because he did not consider him a marketable wrestler.

Austin was still recovering from a triceps injury at the time, so he couldn’t wrestle. Instead, Paul Heyman of Extreme Championship Wrestling (ECW) hired him to conduct in-ring interviews. Austin developed his “Stone Cold” persona while with ECW. In late 1995, he joined the World Wrestling Federation (WWF) after Kevin Nash and Jim Ross persuaded WWF owner Vince McMahon to hire him.

Austin then made his WWF debut on “Raw” on January 8, 1996, where he was awarded the Million Dollar Championship. His real rise to stardom began in 1996, when he defeated Jake “The Snake” Roberts in the King of the Ring tournament. After the match, Austin used his now-iconic catchphrase, “Austin 3:16,” to mock Roberts’ portrayal as a born-again Christian (a play on the Bible verse John 3:16).

This catchphrase eventually became one of the most popular in wrestling history, and it was one of the best-selling T-shirts in WWE history. The “Stone Cold Stunner” was his signature move as “Stone Cold Steve Austin.”

Austin won four federation championships, as well as numerous other tag team and individual titles, between 1995 and 1999. He had a feud with Vince McMahon as well.

He officially retired from wrestling in March 2003, but he has continued to appear in wrestling programming in non-wrestling roles, such as refereeing. He appeared as the Co-General Manager and Sheriff of “Raw” from 2003 to 2004.

Television and Acting: 

Austin has appeared in films such as “The Longest Yard” (2005), “The Condemned” (2007), and “The Expendables” (2010). He is also a popular reality television host, having hosted the CMT show “Redneck Island” from 2012 to 2016, as well as his own competition show “Steve Austin’s Broken Skull Challenge” from 2014 to 2017.

Steve Austin has had four marriages. His first marriage, to Kathy Burrhus, lasted from 1990 to 1992. Austin married Jeannie Clark in 1992. (aka Lady Blossom). In 1999, they divorced. Stephanie and Cassidy are their two daughters. From 2000 to 2003, he was married to Debra Marshall. In 2009, he married Kristin Feres.

Real Estate:

Austin and his fourth wife Kristin split their time for many years between his ranch in Nevada (dubbed the Broken Skull Ranch 2.0) and a home in Marina Del Rey, California. They actually own two homes in Marina Del Rey, one next to the other. Around 2009, he purchased his first property. In 2017, he paid $1.49 million for the house next door in an off-market transaction. He sold the Marina Del Rey property for $3.395 million in April 2021.
