Steve Austin

Before he was “Stone Cold,” Steve Austin was “Stunning.” A can’t-miss prospect in WCW, Austin was destined for greatness from the very beginning. He quickly captured the Television Title twice before moving on to the company’s Tag Team Championship with Brian Pillman.

Fans and officials truly began to take notice of Austin’s capabilities, however, when he defeated Dustin Rhodes in two straight falls to win the U.S. Championship at Starrcade 1993. “Stunning” Steve held on to the title throughout the majority of 1994.

After 240 days in the driver’s seat, battling with stars like The Great Muta and Johnny B. Badd, Austin was finally unseated by Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat at Bash at the Beach 1994.
