The USA Network has announced the return of Stone Cold Steve Austin in a new talk show. Straight Up Steve Austin is set to premiere on Monday, August 12 2019, following Monday Night Raw.
The network posted a press release on May 23, describing the format of the new show.
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.
Steve Austin remans one of the most popular WWE legends of all time, but he has left the pro wrestling business behind. This was perhaps not what his fans expected, as many have hoped to see The Texas Rattlesnake back in Vince McMahon’s company at some point.
But Austin has remained content to stay on the outside and this new show is further proof of that. Of course it’s always possible that Stone Cold could show up on Raw to promote his latest project in the very near future.
