Keibler vs. Austin This Monday on "Chuck"


Former WWE Diva Stacy Keibler will be fighting against WWE Hall of Famer "Stone Cold" Steve Austin on Monday's episode of "Chuck" on NBC.

Keibler will be portraying Greta, a CIA operative, who opposes Austin's heel character, Hugo Panzer. In what could be a surreal TV scene, the two characters will have at least one fight scene during the episode.

"I definitely have a little bit of physicality, and I face off and fight with 'Stone Cold' Steve Austin," Keibler said in a promotional interview for the episode. "And I do it all in my high heels."

Keibler said the TV fight scenes were "easy" thanks to their dual backgrounds in simulated competition through their pro wrestling careers.

"We'd go through (the stunt choreography) a couple times, and we just - we nailed it every single time," she said. "It was easy and fun, and after every single take I think we were laughing."

Austin and Keibler are linked together by a Stone Cold Stunner nearly seven years ago on the October 13, 2003 episode of Raw.

Austin, one of the top babyfaces at time, gave Keibler a Stunner after she was scripted to refuse a beer from Austin. It was a controversial situation where WWE drew criticism for promoting man-on-woman violence on Raw.
