He then made a few appearances with Wrestling/NewJapanProWrestling, before ultimately being signed by WWE and placed in their developmental system. He got his start on the main roster as a member of Wrestling/TheNewDay, inevitably being the group's mouthpiece and "manager" (though he still wrestles himself).

* FinishingMove: Used to be a Tornado DDT. Now it's an inverted pull-back foot stomp that he calls Lost in the Woods. He's recently added a Shining Wizard to his list - one of the reasons he uses King in ''VideoGame/{{Tekken}}'', aside from also being a wrestler, is because he has that move in his arsenal.

** In July 2014, he appeared before [[Wrestling/BigELangston Big E]] and KofiKingston, [[BadassInANiceSuit in a suit]], offering to be their manager. They accepted, had one successful match one week later, and... nothing's come of it on TV as of yet, although the group has been spotted together at live events and on social media. They finally debuted as a three-man stable in late November of that same year.

* HateSink: Austin has said many times that he's a far better heel than a babyface and people just naturally hate him. Of course he seems to prefer it that way and once he's actually playing a heel, people do seem to enjoy him.
