Stone Cold Steve Austin Claims He Drank Real Beer In The Ring
Austin spoke with former WWE timekeeper Mark Yeaton on his Steve Austin Podcast show this week — Yeaton would throw beers to Austin after his fights.
Austin recalled one time in Japan when 115 beers had been drank; the most he ever went through.
“Were you in Japan the time we did the beer bash with the Dudleys and Stacy Keibler?” Austin asked Yeaton. “We went through 115 beers that night [in Japan], and that was the most I ever went through.”
“And a lot of people said, ‘Hey man, was that real beer?’” Austin added. “And I say yes, it was always real beer… except for the one time. We were in Montreal, I think it was Sunday, something like that. Whatever it was, or maybe it was against the rules of the building, but it was NA beer, non-alcohol.”
Austin explained that rumors about him drinking non-alcoholic beer spread after the match in Montreal. “All of a sudden those pictures start making the rounds and people are thinking, ‘Oh they’re throwing this guy non-alcohol beer.’”
Austin also admitted to having a bit of a buzz following his beer bash stunt.
“I can’t tell you how many times I left the ring and I had a little bit of a buzz because of all the beers I was drinking,” Austin joked. “When you’re shotgunning anywhere from six to 12 beers, and maybe you get half of ‘em in. On an empty stomach, after you’ve wrestled, it goes to your head pretty quick.”
Austin retired from the WWE back in 2003 and has gone on to produce his own popular brew called Broken Skull.
