Meet Mark Yeaton: The unknown WWE legend who used to throw legend Stone Cold Steve Austin his beers to chug

WITHOUT doubt one of the WWE's most iconic moments include Stone Cold Steve Austin's constant chugging of beer.

The wrestling legend would send the crowd wild with his boisterous antics, a staple of the much-loved Attitude Era.

He was well-known for his feuds with The Rock, Triple H and The Undertaker, causing carnage across RAW and SmackDown.

And afterr smashing up his rivals in the ring, the Texas Rattlesnake would celebrate with an ice cold bud.

But someone had to throw the now-retired 56-year-old his beers, and that came down to one man.

Mark Yeaton was a referee in the WWE, as well as being the time-keeper who rang the bell before and after bouts.

However, he was best known though for launching beers 15ft from the side of the apron into the hands of Stone Cold.

And Austin has revealed the beers WERE alcoholic - and he once got drunk and almost fell off a turnbuckle in the ring.

The icon also told his podcast he went through 115 cans while at a boozy Japan Beer Bash show.


He said: "We went through 115 beers that night [in Japan], and that was the most I ever went through.

"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."

Some of Austin's most memorable moments came when downing numerous beers after performing his 'Stunner' finisher of famous faces.

They include former US President Donald Trump along with boxing legend Mike Tyson.

Austin added: "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."

WWE legend Stone Cold Steve Austin’s in-ring return is definitely possible clams RVD
