By now you've probably read that WWE Hall of Famer "Stone Cold" Steve Austin has teamed up with El Segundo Brewing Company for a new craft beer.  It's called Steve Austin's Broken Skull IPA.  The company says right now the beer will be sold in California, but it sounds like they have plans to distribute. Hopefully this goes nationwide sooner rather than later.  

Endorsing Chipotle Ketchup (as Bobby Heenan)

Austin isn't the first in wrestling to have a food or beverage created in their likeness.  Of course Jim Ross has a whole line of barbecue sauce and condiments out there.  In addition to the sauces there's also beef jerky.  So far all I've had is the chipotle ketchup, but I highly recommend it.  It's available on several websites.  I plan to pick up some Main Event Mustard at Wrestlemania Axxess in 2016.  Click here for details.

Roddy Piper's "All Out of Bubble Gum" soda

A few years ago a soda called "All Out of Bubblegum" was released in honor of "Rowdy" Roddy Piper and the movie They Live.  Piper's famous line "I have come here to chew bubble gum and kick ass, and I'm all out of bubblegum." I've never tried the soda, but it's still available on BevMo!'s website for $1.99 a bottle.  

Lucha beer!

South of the border, Jose Guizar has come up with cerveceria sagrada.  This "lucha" beer is inspired by stars of the ring in Mexico.  Flavors include Rey Negro (Imperial Stout), Guero Gomez (Lager) and El Hijo del Vampiro (Red Ale).  You can learn more here

The Rock's pie
Not sure how successful these items are, but I'm surprised The Rock hasn't been approached to endorse a line of pies and strudels.  How about dog food based on The British Bulldogs, Junkyard Dog or The Road Dogg?  Or Bob Backlund chicken wings?  What wrestling inspired food lines can you come up with?
