A&E Announces New TV Series Starring A WWE Hall Of Famer WWE

A&E has announced a new television series starring a WWE Hall of Famer.

Stone Cold Steve Austin is a multi-time world champion and WWE Hall of Famer who has also made an impact outside the company as a mainstream star.

Whether it be his podcast or his USA Network series Straight Up Stone Cold, “The Texas Rattlesnake” is no stranger from being a television mainstay.

On Thursday, A&E announced that a new series starring Stone Cold Steve Austin entitled “Stone Cold Takes America” will premiere on the network at 10PM Eastern time on Sunday, April 30. The show will be part of WWE’s Sunday night programming block on A&E.

The new program will air alongside the second season of “WWE’s Most Wanted Treasures”, which will premiere on April 30 at 9PM Eastern.

“Stone Cold Takes America” will be a 10-part series where Austin “takes viewers on an epic adventure as he redefines what life after years in the ring looks like and experiences everything he missed out on while focused on his career.”

The full description for the series reads:

“For over two decades, ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin gave everything to wrestling, becoming one of the all-time greats. However, his dedication to his career meant sacrificing many of the other experiences life has to offer.

In each one-hour episode of ‘Stone Cold Takes on America,’ Austin will hit the road in his RV, accepting challenges from fans that push him out of his comfort zone, and make up for lost time.

Through archival footage from classic WWE moments and his own stories, the series weaves together Austin’s old and new life—both filled with incredible feats and his unique point of view—as he celebrates and learns from new experiences how only ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin can.”

WWE programming returns to A&E this Sunday, February 19 with new seasons of “Biography: WWE Legends” and “WWE Rivals”. Sunday’s Biography episode will focus on The NWO, while the Rivals show will spotlight the rivalry between Hulk Hogan and Andre The Giant.
