Steve Austin made his big return to the ring for a one-off match at WrestleMania 38 against Kevin Owens. As we approach this year’s show of shows, Austin is not on the card, but he will certainly be on the minds of Superstars and fans all night, because you never know when his glass-breaking music could strike. On that note, Austin did have a way to enjoy himself even while he was working last year.

Steve Austin took Kevin Owens to the woodshed at the show of shows, and he gave the crowd one incredible performance. That being said, even the Texas Rattlesnake needed to take a breather.

While speaking to Out of Character with Ryan Satin, Steve Austin admitted that he drank so many of his Broken Skull Beer during his WrestleMania match, not as a product placement, but because he needed to take a break.

“It was what it was, I wanted to give them more, but the whole time, when you have that amount of people out there, I’ve been in front of a million crowds, but you’re trying to pace yourself. When you saw me go sip beers, I wasn’t doing that to advertise my beer, I was doing that to take a breather and kind of monitor the system because I was getting a little gassed. You don’t want to go out there and freak out. I was taking those opportunities to slow down and catch a breather.”


Steve Austin’s beer company is thriving, and many fans have enjoyed their own Steveweisers while watching WWE programming. Some of them might have even downed a few during that WrestleMania match.

We’ll have to see if and when Steve Austin makes a return to the ring. He still has the ability to lay out opponents with Stone Cold Stunners, but he also needs to keep in mind that he’s not the same Texas Rattlesnake that we all used to know.
