The Undertaker took to Twitter to share a clip of Austin’s documentary. The two share immense mutual respect and understanding of the journey from nothingness to the pinnacle of success.

I’ve shared the roads. The rings. And quite a few drinks with Steve Austin. It’s one thing to make it TO WWE. Another thing to make it to the top. A&E TV tonight at 8/7c,” Taker wrote.

John Cena hyped Stone Cold Steve Austin ahead of the biography

Longtime “face” of WWE, John Cena also went on to heap praises for the veteran. He insists the biography is a must-watch for everyone, which includes wrestling fans to the ones who do not understand wrestling at all.

Tonight at 8/7c on AETV is the biography of the biggest WWE superstar in history,” Cena wrote. “The story of Steve Austin is a MUST SEE for ANYONE from the dedicated members of the WWE Universe to someone who may not understand what WWE is. I can’t wait for this.”

Stone Cold Steve Austin claimed 19 championship titles from his career spanning from 1989 to 2003. It was because of multiple knee injuries and a horrific neck injury that he had to retire from in-ring action in 2003.

The Hall of Famer is well remembered for his feud with Vince McMahon. His defiance of authority and establishment made him quite popular during the Attitude Era. Even after almost two decades after his retirement, he remains one of the most widely celebrated wrestlers of all time.
