Stone Cold Scam at Indiana Wal*Mart
Police in Indiana are looking for a man who claimed to be retired pro wrestler “Stone Cold” Steve Austin, and showed up for an “autograph signing” at a local Wal*Mart in which he charged fans $10 a head. According to the Associated Press, the man fled the signing once onlookers suspected he wasn’t what he seemed. The impersonator, before leaving, had claimed that management knew he was a lookalike. World Wrestling Entertainment, which owns the rights to the name, is “working with” police to apprehend the man.
