A Two-Hour Documentary Is Being Made About Stone Cold Steve Austin

A Two-Hour Documentary Is Being Made About Stone Cold Steve Austin

Grab yourself some tinnies and smash 'em together in jubilation, because a two-hour documentary about Stone Cold Steve Austin is on its way.

WWE Studios will partner with TV network A&E to produce the documentary, which is part of a series called Biography.

The Texas Rattlesnake is just one of five wrestlers who will feature in the series, as 'Macho Man' Randy Savage, 'Rowdy' Roddy Piper, Booker T and Shawn Michaels will be the subject of two-hour documentaries too.

The series will offer fans an insight into the lives of the wrestlers using a combination of new and old interviews, as well as previously unseen footage.

According to Variety, Elaine Frontain Bryant, executive vice president and head of programming at A&E Network, said: "We are thrilled for the tremendous opportunity to partner with WWE Studios to produce these special films that honour some of the most impactful personalities who have left a lasting imprint on pop culture."

How very exciting. The bad news, though, is that you're going to have to wait the longest for the documentaries you really want to see the most.

According to Variety, the 'Macho Man' Randy Savage, 'Rowdy' Roddy Piper and the Booker T documentaries are already in pre-production and are scheduled for release next spring, whereas the Stone Cold Steve Austin and the Shawn Michaels documentaries won't be ready to air until 2021.

So that's a fair amount of time for fans to wait around with a few tinnies and listen to some sweet chin music, but better late than never.

If you need help passing the time, then it's worth noting that Biography has already covered wrestling legends Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson and Andre the Giant - so there's four hours less time you have to wait until The Rattlesnake gets his time in the spotlight.

Last year it was reported that the former wrestler - known for his beer-drinking among other things - had quit the booze, after he revealed he had knocked it on the head for weeks as part of diet regime. However, he quickly put the record straight, confirming it was only a temporary thing.

He said: "There ain't no room in my diet for alcohol at this point in time. I didn't swear off alcohol forever. Why in the fuck would I do that? I enjoy alcohol responsibly as an adult, so therefore I will probably drink until my final day on Earth."

And that my friends is the bottom line, cuz Stone Cold said so.
