While it isn’t in a WWE ring or with the company that made him a household name, Steve Austin is back on television, this time with USA Network. He’ll be the star of his own reality show.
Austin will host a new show called “Straight Up Steve Austin”. The show will air for seven episodes on the USA Network.
The series will premiere on Monday, August 12 and while it will include a number of country or outdoor-style celebrities, for WWE fans, they’ll be excited to know Raw Women’s Champion, Becky Lynch will be a guest.
The press release on the show is below:
“Stone Cold” Steve Austin’s New Reality Show Is Coming to USA This Summer!
Today, USA Network announced the pickup of Straight Up Steve Austin, a unique interview-based series hosted by retired WWE legend “Stone Cold” Steve Austin. The series of seven half-hour episodes will air on USA on Mondays at 11/10c following WWE Monday Night Raw, beginning August 12!
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 Impractical Jokers star Sal Volcano.
Straight Up Steve Austin joins USA’s growing unscripted lineup, which includes family docu-comedies Chrisley Knows Best, Growing Up Chrisley and The Radkes, WWE-related series Miz & Mrs, and buzzy reboots Temptation Island and The Biggest Loser.
Steve Austin Still A Star
Despite not being a WWE competitor for years, USA Network knows the value of the Steve Austin brand. It’s a brand that includes a successful podcast, the Broken Skull product line and a show on CMT.
