A new series hosted by Steve Austin is coming to the WWE Network later this month.
It was announced via Variety today that the first episode of "Stone Cold Steve Austin: The Broken Skull Sessions" will premiere on the WWE Network after Survivor Series on Sunday, November 24. It will be a monthly interview series, with The Undertaker appearing as Austin's guest on the debut episode.
“Mark has been doing The Undertaker for 30 years and he has had one of the greatest runs in the history of the business,” Austin told Variety. “He’s stayed in character all this time. He’s made a few appearances on some talk shows way back in the day, but no one has really ever heard from Mark Calaway the man…I think he was enthusiastic because he has been quiet for so long so now he has the chance to share some stories like everyone else has. He’s had one of the most high-profile careers and, back in his heyday, had some of the most outlandish stories from the road. We had a great time shooting the breeze.”
Austin previously hosted the Stone Cold Podcast on the WWE Network. He spoke to Variety about the difference between that show and his new series: "I think this is going to be a little more relaxed and laid back. The other one was live and I was flying around to accommodate the schedule and going out on the road. This is over at the Broken Skull studio, which we’ve built up…It’s basically like a bullsh*t session, talking about someone’s career and trading stories, shooting the breeze."
WWE noted that the Broken Skull Sessions "will feature no-holds-barred, one-on-one conversations with the biggest names in WWE history, including legends, superstars, and celebrity guests."
