Debuting as the Ring Master, but soon becoming Stone Cold, Steve Austin fought his way to the top of WWE.

 
We'll explore how he was able to overcome some less than desirable early gimmicks, and how Bret "Hitman" Hart played a huge role in the rise of the rattlesnake.
 
Injuries would be a frequent theme of Austin's career, and perhaps the most notorious occurred at Summerslam 1997. We talk about the match, the injury, and how, somehow, Austin was able to find a golden lining in being unable to wrestle...and therefore spending more time on the microphone.
