Known for his signature move the stunner in the ring as well as drama that kept audiences engaged beyond it, WWE superstar wrestler "Stone Cold" Steve Austin, boasts of a net worth of $45 million as of 2023. The retired wrestler has also generated considerable revenue from his stint as an actor and a producer for films and television. Apart from that Austin has made money from royalties, and lucrative endorsement deals to scale financial success in showbiz. The high-school football player trained at Chris Adams' wrestling school and made his debut in 1989 for WCW under the alias Stunning Steve Austin. After failure to clinch titles in the WCW arena, Austin was fired and found a place at WWF, which later became WWE, in 1995. This was followed by a winning streak in 1996, that saw him become King of the Ring, and set the stage for a dramatic rise in professional wrestling.

Despite his later foray towards the silver screen, wrestling remained Stone Cold's main source of income and his primary claim to fame. Austin's wrestling career was marked by championships, feuds, and iconic catchphrases like "Austin 3:16."
