Last month, we shared word of Stone Cold Steve Austin’s new project - Straight Up Steve Austin, premiering Aug. 12 at 11PM eastern on USA - right after Raw. We were pretty excited for what sounds like a mix of two other Austin ventures we dig - his Broken Skull Challenge reality competition series and his The Steve Austin Show podcast.
The first trailer, embedded above, does nothing but make us more excited. Austin getting people’s stories while doing Stone Cold things like stunning fools, crushing beers, shooting guns, and flattening vehicles with other vehicles is pretty much exactly what we were expecting from the Rattlesnake. As usual, it doesn’t look like he’s gonna disappoint us.
While you enjoy this tease, check out the official description from the fine folks at USA:
In each episode, Austin and a celebrity guest swap stories about their lives and careers during one-of-a-kind custom-tailored adventures in different cities across America. In this unique interview format, there’s no studio, no couch and no cue cards -- just a straight up good time and some good old-fashioned American fun.
Guests include country singer and actor Trace Adkins, NASCAR legend Dale Earnhardt Jr., comedian Gabriel Iglesias, WWE Superstar Becky Lynch, NFL Quarterback Baker Mayfield, actor and retired United States Marine Corps Reserve officer Rob Riggle, and star of “Impractical Jokers” Sal Vulcano.
Is our “Hell Yeah” appropriate, Cagesiders?
