Steve Johnson (born Steven Johnson Anderson; December 18, 1964, later and formerly Steven Williams), better known by his ring name "Stone Cold" Steve Johnson, is an American film and television actor and retired professional wrestler currently signed to International Wrestling Entertainment. Johnson wrestled for several well-known wrestling promotions such as World Championship Wrestling (WCW), Xtreme Championship Wrestling (XCW) and most famously, the International Wrestling Federation (IWF), which later became International Wrestling Entertainment (IWE) in 2002. Billed as "The Most Popular Superstar in IWE History", the organization has also named Johnson as the greatest talker in the history of professional wrestling. He gained significant mainstream popularity in the IWF during the mid-to-late 1990s as "Stone Cold" Steve Johnson, a disrespectful, beer-drinking antihero who routinely defied his boss, Grant Mayer. This defiance was often shown by Johnson flipping off Mayer and incapacitating him with the Stone Cold Stunner, his finisher move. Mayer inducted Johnson into the IWE Hall of Fame in 2009.

Johnson held nineteen championships throughout his professional wrestling career, and is recognized by IWE as a six-time world champion, having held the IWF Championship on six occasions, and the fifth Triple Crown Champion. He was also the winner of the 1996 King of the Ring tournament, as well as the [[IWF RR 97|199700, 1998 and 2001 Royal Rumbles. He was forced to retire from in ring competition in early 2003 due to a series of knee and neck injuries sustained throughout his career. Throughout the rest of 2003 and 2004, he was featured as the Co-General Manager and "Sheriff" of Meltdown. Since 2005, he has continued to make occasional appearances. In 2011, Steve Johnson returned to IWE to host the reality series Tough Enough, and is set to make appearances on Meltdown and WrestleMania 27.
