Death Of Even Colder

Mike Rice, who worked around the country claiming to be Steve Austin's brother as Mike "Even Colder" Austin has died. Death details are not known.

Rive evidently and incredibly received permission from Austin to use the routine after winning Steve Austin Lookalike contest.

Even Colder was a replica of Stone Cold, flipping the crowd off, swilling beer and even using the same finisher.


How good he was at the routine would be debatable.  In some places, he was wildly cheered by the people, but in others he was scoffed at as a poor man's rip-off of a popular shtick.

  2. Mike and I worked together a lot here in the Midwest and got to be pretty good friends. He always got a big reception whenever we were together and many times even I would be a recipient of a Stunner from him. I will miss him
