USA Network Announces New TV Show with WWE Hall of Famer Steve Austin Called “Straight Up Steve Austin”

The legendary WWE Hall of Famer “Stone Cold” Steve Austin is back on TV with USA Network announcing a new interview-based show where Austin talks to guests from the world of sports and entertainment. The show will air Mondays at 11pmET after Raw.

Here’s the press release:

Today, USA Network announced the pickup of Straight Up Steve Austin, a unique interview-based series hosted by retired WWE legend “Stone Cold” Steve Austin. The series of seven half-hour episodes will air on USA on Mondays at 11/10c following WWE Monday Night Raw, beginning August 12!

In each episode, Austin and a celebrity guest swap stories about their lives and careers during one-of-a-kind custom-tailored adventures in different cities across America. In this unique interview format, there’s no studio, no couch and no cue cards — just a straight-up good time and some good old-fashioned American fun.

Guests include country singer and actor Trace Adkins, NASCAR legend Dale Earnhardt Jr., comedian Gabriel Iglesias, WWE Superstar Becky Lynch, NFL Quarterback Baker Mayfield, actor and retired United States Marine Corps Reserve officer Rob Riggle, and Impractical Jokers star Sal Volcano.

Straight Up Steve Austin joins USA’s growing unscripted lineup, which includes family docu-comedies Chrisley Knows Best, Growing Up Chrisleyand The Radkes, WWE-related series Miz & Mrs, and buzzy reboots Temptation Island and The Biggest Loser.

The August 12 start date should lead to Austin making some appearances on Raw to promote the show. It makes sense to do that anyway.
