The producers behind the Chicago Bulls documentary series “The Last Dance” have a new project in the works about WWE legend “Stone Cold” Steve Austin.
Former WWE ring announcer Lilian Garcia revealed during an appearance on “The Chris Van Vliet Show.”
“WWE reached out to me first. They were like, ‘The producer from ‘The Last Dance’ is going to reach out to you. They want you involved in a documentary,'” Garcia said. “I was like, ‘Wait, what?’ … It was funny because my husband and I were currently watching that documentary as this message was happening. So when (the producer) Jake (Rogal) reached out to me, I was just like, ‘Jake, I’m literally watching your documentary right now, this is amazing.’
“Come to find out that they want to do a documentary for ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin and it’s coming out next year.”
The discussion starts around the 6:00 mark:
Stone Cold Steve Austin – real name Steven Williams – made his wrestling debut in 1989. But it wasn’t until he signed for WWE (then WWF) in 1995 that his career really took off.
Austin retired in 2003, due to neck injuries, but has continued to make appearances in WWE.
