Season two of Straight Up Steve Austin is on USA Network starting Jan. 11. Hosted by “Stone Cold” Steve Austin of WWE fame, Straight Up sees Austin and a celebrity guest head to a different city and swap stories about their lives and their careers. 

“It’s a unique twist on the standard interview show, with no studio, no couch and no cue cards -- just a straight up good time and good old-fashioned American fun,” according to USA Network. 

Guests include comedian Bert Kreischer, who hosts Go-Big Show on TBS, Brett Favre, WWE Superstar Charlotte Flair, Ice-T, country star Luke Combs, Joel McHale, Jackass star Steve-O and Tiffany Haddish. 

“Each episode, something happens that’s a little off the wall,” Austin told MCN. “Each guest brings a different vibe and a different ‘holy smoke’ moment.” 

The series is produced by Line by Line Media and executive produced by Austin, Dave Barsky, Deb Cullen, Sam Sarkoob and Bob Unger.
