I was just watching WWE 24/7's Big Bang's and Dazzling Debuts month when something caught me off guard.

They show Steve Austin's Raw debut match against Savio Vega where he's managed by Ted DiBiase and everything, but Vince McMahon and Jerry Lawler keep calling him Stone Cold Steve Austin.

I distinctly remember Austin being dubbed "The Ringmaster" when he first debuted in the WWE as Ted DiBiase's Million Dollar Champion and he wasn't "Stone Cold" until DiBiase quit the WWE and left for WCW.

Am I correct in assuming they redubbed the match or is my memory failing?

Apparently it really was the debut of "Stone Cold" on Raw. From John Petrie's archived report for Raw 3/11/96 (

...and Western Canada is still waiting on WWE 24/7. Shaw Cable SUCKS.

I too remember him being the Ringmaster at his debut.

I still haven't found what I'm looking for...

You wanted the best, you got... Out of Context Quote of the Week.

Yeah, the whole move towards going full-time the Stone Cold moniker started during the 1996 King of the Ring, if I recall. He started off the tournament with the Ringmaster moniker, but by the semis, they were calling him Stone Cold.

Speak for yourself. Saskatchewan has had it since almost the beginning, on SaskTel. (Not that I get it; my roommates just me enough for being a wrestling fan, the last thing they want is for it to appear on the cable bill.)

One time I was at a WWF house show in Winnipeg. After Steve Austin got beat by Kurt Angle in the main event, Austin wandered around ringside with the mic, talking to the fans. He'd ask people what they did for a living, and one guy said he worked for Shaw Cable. "If there's one thing I can't stand," replied Austin, "it's a no-good, sorry son-of-a-bitch who works for Shaw Cable." It was the quickest, most effective face turn I'd ever seen.

Also, like hansen9j said, Saskatchewan gets WWE 24/7 on SaskTel - and it rules really hard, just in case you were wondering.

Nah. I don't see that happening. RAW still draws the highest rating, by a factor of three, of any programming on TNN, and Viacom is more worried about MTV, which is hemmorhaging viewers at an even more alarming rate.
