World Wrestling Entertainment attitude era in 90’s had some iconic superstars who took to the wrestling ring and provided some great entertainment to the fans worldwide. When we talk about the attitude era we had the likes of HHH, The Rock, The Mc Mahon family, D Generation X to name a few, but the most iconic character was none other than Stone Cold’ Steve Austin.
Austin was the company’s biggest star and his ‘Stone Cold’ stunners on other superstars made fans go wild. Apart from his stunner, he was also known for his beer drinking ability. The timekeeper used to throw One can, two cans, sometimes three or four at a time; while Austin catching them one-handed broke the cans and drink all of them at one go something that fans went nuts about.
However, at the age of 53, Austin has revealed that he has given up on alcohol. He made the revelation on his podcast, ‘The Steve Austin Show’. The Hall of Famer said that he gave up drinking and is now following a strict diet and exercise program.
“My eating program is going fantastic. [I’m] sticking to my exact macros,” said Austin. “Zero alcohol for right at 14 days now. Pounds are coming off. My strength is going up. Jesus Christ, I’m getting as strong as a goddamn horse over here.
“No alcohol and when you hit the weights on a consistent basis and eat what you’re supposed to, it is amazing the difference that you can make or I’m making. “I’m also doing my DDP Yoga s***. Hell, I’m going to jump up here and do the splits like a god-dang cheerleader in a minute! I’m flexible as a mother******.
“Dallas’ program works like a b****. I appreciate it, Dallas. I appreciate it, man. That’s a badass program. I’m sticking to it!”
Austin also revealed about the use of medical marijuana to help both manage pain relief from injuries in his pro wrestling days and also to help keep down his desire for alcohol.
“I’m thinking, ‘man, here I am, retired from the wrestling business, a global icon and a national treasure, and I’m about to get busted for f****** one joint because I wanted to try out a god damn marijuana cigarette, so I could get away from the booze.’” said Austin
