CLEVELAND -- One of the most famous superstars in professional wrestling history, "Stone Cold" Steve Austin is returning to the USA Network.

And for at least one episode, the "Texas Rattlesnake" is bringing Baker Mayfield with him.

On Thursday, the USA Network announced it has picked up the first season of a new show titled "Straight Up Steve Austin." According to a press release, "the unique interview-based series" will feature Austin talking to some of the biggest stars from the world of sports and entertainment, with Mayfield listed as one of the series' first guests.

"In each episode, Austin and a celebrity guest swap stories about their lives and careers during one-of-a-kind custom-tailored adventures in different cities across America," the release reads. "In this unique interview format, there’s no studio, no couch and no cue cards -- just a straight-up good time and some good old-fashioned American fun."

While it remains to be seen which of the seven half-hour episodes Mayfield will be a part of, the second-year signal-caller's inclusion in the show hardly comes as a surprise. Earlier this, Mayfield was spotted riding around Cleveland alongside Austin -- literally -- before taking part in some sort of tailgate catered by TownHall.

"We wanted to let you guys know we're doing something really special right now with Stone Cold Steve Austin," Mayfield can be seen saying in an Instagram video posted by the Ohio City restaurant.

Other guests listed for the first the first seven-episode season of Austin's show include singer and actor Trace Adkins, NASCAR legend Dale Earnhardt Jr., comedian Gabriel Iglesias, WWE superstar Becky Lynch, actor Rob Riggle and Impractical Jokers star Sal Vulcano. The show is set to air on Mondays at 11 p.m. ET following WWE Monday Night Raw beginning on August 12.
