Stone Cold Steve Austin AKA the king of beer spoke on his own podcast this week about what it was like getting pissed in the ring every night after his matches.

There were a few key findings…
The beer was real:
And a lot of people said ‘hey man, was that real beer?’ And I say yes, it was always real beer… except for the one time. We were in Montreal, I think it was Sunday, something like that. Whatever it was, or maybe it was against the rules of the building, but it was NA beer, non-alcohol. And so all of a sudden those pictures start making the rounds and people are thinking ‘oh they’re throwing this guy non-alcohol beer.’ … that was one time.
Drinking on an empty stomach immediately after wresting:
I can’t tell you how many times I left the ring and I had a little bit of a buzz because of all the beers I was drinking. When you’re shotgunning anywhere from six to 12 beers, and maybe you get half of ‘em in. On an empty stomach, after you’ve wrestled, it goes to your head pretty quick.
He once drank 115 beers (with a little help) in Japan:
Were you in Japan the time we did the beer bash with the Dudleys and Stacy Keibler? …. We went through 115 beers that night [in Japan], and that was the most I ever went through.
He used to get Goldberg drunk:
There was a couple of times when I got to do a little bit of business with Goldberg and we got to do something after a match. I go out there and I keep tossing Bill beers, and this is back when Bill didn’t really drink beer. He had to drink ‘em to keep up his gimmick because Stone Cold throwing ‘em to him. And I’d always keep shoveling him beers to get him buzzed, basically it was a rib.
Outrageous. I just wish there was a picture or some footage of this thing so we could see all those beers getting dashed into the ring.
115 beers is pretty impressive – I’m pretty sure Andre The Giant would drink Stone Cold under the table though.
