13. One night later, Austin and Triple H would form an unlikely tag team. On April 29th, they defeated The Undertaker and Kane to become WWF Tag Team Champions. How many partners has Austin held the Tag Team Titles with?

From Quiz The Austin Era-Part 3-2001 through 2003

Answer: Four

Austin's first partner was Shawn Michaels. They won the titles in May of 1997, when they defeated Owen Hart and the British Bulldog after Michaels hit the Bulldog with his "Sweet Chin Music" and Austin pinned him. After they won the titles Austin said "I did it by myself," and this didn't make Michaels very happy and because of what Austin said, they were always arguing. At the "King Of The Ring," they had a one on one match, and it was ruled a no contest when things got out of control. They would end up vacating the Tag Team Titles. His next partner was Dude Love. Let me give you a rundown of how this happened. Mankind wanted to be Austin's partner and he did everything he could to win him over. He saved him from attacks and even had a sign with him that said "Pick Me Steve." After saving him from another attack Austin shook his hand, but Mankind wanted a hug so Austin gave him a hug and then gave him a "Stone Cold Stunner." The next week Austin said he didn't need a partner and went out to face the WWF Tag Team Champions (Bulldog and Owen) alone. Austin got in trouble and Dude Love came down to join the match. They would end up winning the Tag Team Titles, but had to forfeit them, when Austin got hurt at "Summerslam." Austin and Dude Love had two one on one matches. In the first one, Austin got disqualified but held on to the WWF Heavyweight Championship. In the second one, Vince McMahon was the referee. Dude Love tried to hit Austin with a chair, but Austin moved out of the way and McMahon got hit with it instead. Austin gave Dude a "Stone Cold Stunner." He then took McMahon's hand and forced him to make a three count with it; both of these matches happened in 1998. His next partner was The Undertaker. They won the Tag Team Titles from Kane and Mankind in July of 1998, but lost them in August back to Kane and Mankind. At "Summerslam," Austin and Undertaker had a match for the WWF Heavyweight Championship. It was a successful title defense for Austin. As for Austin and Triple H they lost the titles to Chris Jericho and Chris Benoit on May 21st. Triple H would tear his quad in this match and be out of action for about eight months.

14. At the Pay Per View, "King of the Ring" in 1996, which phrase did Austin say for the first time?

From Quiz The Austin Era -Part 1-1996 through 1997

Answer: "Austin 3:16"

"Austin 3:16" was born that night after he became "King of the Ring". He beat Jake "The Snake" Roberts and Marc Mero to become "King". In the match with Mero he was kicked in the lip. Austin went to the hospital to get stiches then returned to the arena and beat Jake Roberts.

15. On December 9, 1995 at ECW's "December to Dismember" event, what two wrestlers did "Superstar" Steve Austin face in a "Three Way Dance" for the ECW Heavyweight Title?

From Quiz Steve Austin: From "Stunning to Stone Cold"

Answer: Mikey Whipwreck and The Sandman

In the spring of 1995 while recovering from an injury Steve Austin was fired from WCW via Fed Ex and a telephone call. This did not sit well with Austin who harbored a longtime grudge against then WCW head Eric Bischoff for not firing him face to face which after four years with the promotion would have only been courteous. Immediately contacted by his former manager Paul Heyman who also had heat with Bischoff and WCW, Austin went to ECW. During his brief time in Philly he was known as "Superstar" Steve Austin and cut many promos belittling Eric Bischoff and WCW. On December 9, 1995 at "December to Dismember" The Sandman defeated Austin and Mikey Whipwreck to win the ECW Heavyweight Title.

16. At the 1996 "Survivor" Series Austin faced what returning superstar?

From Quiz The Austin Era -Part 1-1996 through 1997

Answer: Bret Hart & Hart

Austin lost a hard fought battle. Bret and Austin had a long standing feud, but they never got to finish it because Bret left for WCW after "Survivor" Series in 1997.

17. At the 1996 "King of the Ring" event Austin battled former WCW Alumnus Marc Mero in one of the semi final matches. What injury did Austin sustain in that match?

From Quiz Steve Austin: From "Stunning to Stone Cold"

Answer: A badly lacerated lip

Many claim that June 23, 1996 was the night that "Stone Cold" Steve Austin was born as a WWF star. On that night Austin defeated an aging Jake Roberts and won the "1996 King of the Ring" Tournament. After the match he cut his the famous "Austin 3:16" promo which literally jump started his career. Steve did not have an easy time of it as he fought Marc Mero in a very tough semi final match where his lip was lacerated very severely. After the match, Austin was taken across the street, to a Hospital where his lip was stitched up. The final match between Jake and Austin was kept short not because of Jake's "storyline" rib cage injury but because many feared Steve's lip would burst open again.

18. Who did Austin defend the WWF Heavyweight Championship against at "Summerslam"?

From Quiz The Austin Era-Part 3-2001 through 2003

Answer: Kurt Angle

Angle won the match by disqualification. After a reign of almost six months, Austin finally lost the title to Angle on September 23rd. Angle, who won a Gold Medal in the 1996 Summer Olympic Games, won the title less than two weeks after the terrorist attacks on New York's World Trade Center on September 11th. Austin won the title for the sixth and final time on October 8th.

From Quiz Steve Austin: From "Stunning to Stone Cold"

Answer: "Fat Ass"

In one of my all time favorite segments of "Raw" Steve Austin comes to ringside where Vince McMahon, his goons, and Paul Bearer are celebrating Kane's WWF Title win the previous night at the 1998 "King of the Ring". Austin immediately challenges for a rematch and true to form the cowardly McMahon passes the buck off to manager Paul Bearer. Austin then tells the obese manager "Spit the cupcakes out and tell me I got the rematch". Absolutely priceless! This off the cuff remark and those like them are what made "The Attitude Era" so memorable.

From Quiz The Austin Era-Part 3-2001 through 2003

21. How many referees were used in the Austin/Rock match at "Wrestlemania XV"?

From Quiz The Austin Era-Part 2-1998 through 2000

Vince McMahon named himself referee but Shawn Michaels came out with Mike Chioda before the match and named him referee. At one point in the match Chioda got knocked out and Tim White stepped in. The Rock would end up getting mad at White and gave him a "Rock Bottom." In stepped Earl Hebner, who got into an argument with Vince McMahon and was punched out by him. McMahon then got into the ring and he and the Rock double-teamed Austin. Mankind came down for the end of the match and saved him. Austin became the WWF Wrestlemania Champion for the third time. He would lose the title to The Undertaker on May 23, but he won it back on June 28.

23. In the fall of 1999 Austin needed some time off for a serious neck surgery, what "storyline" was created so that he could be written off for a year?

From Quiz Steve Austin: From "Stunning to Stone Cold"

Answer: He was run over by a truck

In the fall of 1999, at the height of his popularity and the height of "The Attitude Era", Austin had to leave because a nagging neck injury required surgery. The injury actually happened some two years prior at "Summerslam '97" when the late Owen Hart delivered a botched pile driver on Austin. To explain his absence Austin became the victim of a "Hit and Run" accident in which he was run over by a truck.

26. How many times has "Stone Cold" Steve Austin defeated The Rock at a "Wrestlemania" Pay Per View?

From Quiz Steve Austin: From "Stunning to Stone Cold"

Answer: Twice

One of the best rivalries to come out of "The Attitude Era" was the legendary feud between "Stone Cold" Steve Austin and The Rock. Even though Austin was the premiere star of the promotion, by 1999 The Rock's popularity had earned him the moniker of "The People's Champion". On March 28, 1999 Austin defeated The Rock at "Wrestlemania XV" to win his third WWF Heavyweight Title. Just over two years later at "Wrestlemania XVII" on April 1, 2001 Austin once again defeated his nemesis to win another WWF Heavyweight Title. It was not until "Wrestlemania XIX" on March 30, 2003 that The Rock was able to best his rival in the "Flagship" event of the WWF.

From Quiz Steve Austin: From "Stunning to Stone Cold"

Answer: Vince McMahon

In 2009, with his wrestling career now over, "Stone Cold" Steve Austin was honored by the WWE with an induction into their "Hall of Fame". It is said that every good guy needs a villain to fight in order to endear himself to his fans. Well for much of his WWF superstar days the foil for Steve Austin was the evil Mr Vince McMahon and his henchmen and children. In reality it was McMahon who took a chance on Austin becoming a mega superstar and the man that would pioneer the new vision for his promotion. Together Austin and Vince took the WWF to new heights and succeeded in driving all competing promotions out of business by March 2001.
