“Stone Cold” Steve Austin, the retired professional wrestler, shared his views on same-sex marriage on an episode of his podcast last year that has just recently gone viral.

Steve Austin Supports Same-Sex Marriage

Austin, 49, was holding an interview when he revealed – with some WWE color – his support for marriage equality in the U.S. and around the world.

“I’m for same-sex marriage. I don’t give a s–t if it’s two guys, two gals, guy-gal, whatever it is,” said Austin. “I believe that any human being in America, or every human being in the g––– world who wants to be married [should be able to]; if it's the same sex, more power to 'em."

Austin also voiced his confusion about how certain religious institutions had spoken out against the idea of same-sex marriage.

"What also chaps my a––, some of these churches have the high horse that they get on and say, 'We as a church do not believe in that,’” said Austin. “Which one of these motherf—ers talked to God and God said that same-sex marriage was a no-can-do? Can you verify? Can you give me some 411 on that background?"

Austin is merely the latest big pro wrestling name to show that the WWE has become more progressive over the years. When WWE star Darren Young spontaneously came out during an interview with TMZ last year, a number of his colleagues expressed their support, including John Cena. Young’s career with the organization has not been affected in the organization due to his sexuality and long-term boyfriend.
