On 14 January 2003 Steve Austin was voted the best professional wrestler of the last ten years in a WWE fan poll. In addition to the WWE he has wrestled in the ECW, the WCW and WWF.

He won the 1996 King of the Ring, the 1997 Royal Rumble and the Larry Flynt Freedom of Speech Slammy. Steve Austin is by far the best and most exciting wrestler today.

I was good, but there were others who had better skills. The reason I was an all-star was because no one hustled more than I did. If a ball got by me, I’d sprint to the backstop. I was a hustler.
