So he was a jobber years before he made it big. Many other people were too. It's meaningless except for a stupid trivia question.

What if he was promoted to the roster and then began the Stone Cold gimmick back then? Maybe we would have seen Steve Austin vs Hulk Hogan at Wrestlemania VIII, or maybe the gimmick wasn't ready for that time. If Austin's gimmick got over back then I wonder which would be a bigger match for Wrestlemania, Austin vs Hogan or Flair vs Hogan.

Ding ding ding. The WWF at the time was going into the cartoony era. A gimmick like Stone Cold would never had seen the light of day in the Hogan years.

Or maybe in 1996, when it was the perfect timing for his character.

Steve Autin had more of a realistic everyday man type gimmick. It wouldn't have meshed well with him fighting people who were pretending to be Mounties or Bull Fighters.

Austin was working regularly in USWA at the time. The odds of it being him are 1,000,000:1. Besides, wasn't he still "Steve Williams"?

Perhaps it is Chuck Austin, the man who got several millions from WWE after Marty injured him.

Also, the tag team of Sternum and Rear gave me a chuckle.

That's a mistake. This is likely the Chad Austin/Diamond vs. Rockers tag match.

1. Except it's not. That match was taped in the Sundome in Tampa, FL on 12/11/90.

2.Chad Austin's partner in that match was The Genius.

3. Graham Cawthon doesn't make mistakes.

He says on the first page that not everything is 100% accurate, as most of the info is sent to him from other people.

And there's still the fact Austin was working FULL-TIME in USWA, and could've been in that hot feud with Chris Adams at the time.

I know he says that, but in this case it's corroborated by several sources (that can be easily found online) that the Charles/Chad Austin incident occurred in Tampa, FL.

It could have been a tryout match.

Does anybody have that show on tape? Maybe they can tell us if a fairly well put together young man with long blonde hair got his ass kicked by The Rockers for less than three minutes.

So odd how the two ended up main eventing Wrestlemania only 8 years later.

I have this show. It is definitely NOT Steve Austin. I couldn't even catch the guy's name, since my matchlistings say "Rockers vs. Paul Diamond & jobber".

Another reason the Stone Cold gimmick wouldn't have worked...it wasn't exactly a million miles away from the gimmick used by Bad News Brown and Jim Cornette always talks about the seven year cycle of gimmick infringement.

the jobber is actually Sonny Austin, as he wrestled a match vs. Jake Roberts in Glens Falls, NY the day before, or day after this match. So it is definitely NOT the future Stone Cold Steve Austin
