"I remember a friend said there's life after wrestling...yes there is," Stone Cold Steve Austin said.

And that's the genesis of Stone Cold Steve Austin's new venture, Straight Up Steve Austin on USA Network. It's the side of the wrestling Hall of Famer you don't always get to see.

"Many people see me at an 11," Austin said. "This is me right now at about a two or a three."

He goes one-on-one with everyone recently in the news like Dale Earnhardt Junior.

"We were at his place in Mooresville. He's very charismatic," Austin said.

He also spoke with Impractical Jokers star Sal Vulcano.

"He's a huge wrestling fan," Austin said.

And for those that don't know, Milwaukee holds a special place for Steve. It's the birthplace of Austin 3:16.

"I said the Austin 3:16...then and that's the bottom line, 'cause Stone Cold said so at the MECCA, and my career took off. I'll never forget it," Austin said.

You can catch Straight Up Steve Austin on the USA Network Monday night.
