• Stone Cold Steve Austin Reveals Why He Never Got A Beer Sponsorship During The Attitude Era
WWF Legend Stone Cold Steve Austin is known for drinking beer and kicking a$$.
During an appearance on the BrewBound Podcast, Austin explained why he never got a beer sponsorship during his run at the top in the World Wrestling Federation during the Attitude Era.
Below is what The Texas Rattlesnake said:
“Well, it was an option, we actually pitched a beer company, and I won’t name their name. But we’ve all heard of them, and they’re very popular.
I just think it was due to the fact that I was very aggressive, maybe a little controversial.
My mother used to tell me, ‘Steven, if you were on TV when you were a kid, I wouldn’t let you watch you.’
So, I just think what I was doing was very cutting edge, it was very edgy. And that was the tip of the spear as far as the Attitude Era is concerned.
So, I just don’t think I was someone’s idea of what a role model for their beer would look like at that time.”
Austin finally got to drink his own beer, Broken Skull Lager, at a WWE event – WrestleMania 38. Below is what Austin said about it:
“I have drank everybody’s beer in the past. I’ve been drinking beer my whole life, and I don’t speak technical beer language.
But, we have given all those other brands a little bit of a rub by using their beer. So, to go out there and drink our own beer was very satisfying.”
