Austin hit Faarooq with the Intercontinental Championship belt while the referee's back was turned, causing Hart to win the match.

Austin won the Royal Rumble , lastly eliminating The Rock.

On the Raw after Austin won the WWF Title, Vince McMahon presented him with a new title belt and warned Austin that he did not approve of his rebellious nature and that things could be done "the easy way or the hard way.
This led to a segment a week later where Austin had pledged a few days prior in a meeting to "play ball" with McMahon, appearing in a suit and tie, with a beaming McMahon taking a picture of himself and his new corporate champion. The entire thing was a ruse by Austin who in the course of the segment proceeded to tear off the suit, tell McMahon it was the last time he would see Austin dressed like this, punch his boss in the "corporate grapefruits," and take another picture of the two of them while McMahon was doubled over in pain. In April , it appeared Austin and McMahon were going to battle out their differences in an actual match, but the match was declared a no contest when Dude Love made an appearance.
Austin managed to retain the title despite McMahon acting as the referee and his "Corporate Stooges" Gerald Brisco and Pat Patterson as timekeeper and ring announcer, respectively.

Austin won the match when another referee made the count. The next night on Raw , however, Austin made it clear that while he was the CEO of the company, he could have a title shot at any time and place to be determined by himself. Austin would get his rematch at No Mercy against Triple H but lost after The Rock accidentally struck him with a sledgehammer that was meant for Triple H.
By Survivor Series , Triple H was still champion. Instead, however, Austin was run down by a car in the parking lot. What followed was neck surgery by Dr. Lloyd Youngblood and a nine-month rehabilitation with the car angle as his reason for leaving. In reality, Austin had needed neck surgery since the Owen Hart incident in At Unforgiven , Austin made his official return and tried to find out who ran him down at Survivor Series the previous year. Rikishi finally admitted to being the driver because "he did it for The Rock, he did it for the people". During the match, Austin motioned he was going to drive his truck into Rikishi, who by that time was a bloody mess.
Before he could, he was stopped by officials and the match was deemed a no contest and Austin was kayfabe arrested and later bailed by Commissioner Mick Foley. During a handicap match against Rikishi and Kurt Angle , Triple H came down with the apparent intention of teaming with Austin.
After clearing the ring, Triple H smashed his sledgehammer over Austin's head, and revealed it was actually him behind the whole scheme, devised to shield the WWF Championship from Austin and end his career.

Last eliminating Kane. After the match, Austin shook hands and shared a beer with Vince McMahon. The next night on Raw , after teasing a quick face turn, the heel turn continued. He also altered his character considerably over the next few months, in a deliberate turn from the rebellious and anti-establishment character beloved by the fans, Austin became a whiny, temperamental prima donna who would complain incessantly when he felt he was not getting the respect from the fans and wrestlers that he deserved. He also developed an infatuation with McMahon, going to great lengths to impress him and even going so far as to hugging him and bringing him presents.
McMahon, though visibly uncomfortable and wary by the attention, was still grateful to have Austin with him instead of against him. During a cage match with The Rock in a rematch for the title, Triple H came down to the ring with a sledgehammer and together with Austin viciously attacked The Rock and put him out of action.
Midway through the match, Triple H tore his quadriceps muscle. As planned, the team lost the Tag Team Title at the end of the match when Triple H accidentally hit Austin in the stomach with a sledgehammer, but the injury to Triple H, which kept him out for the remainder of the year, forced the WWF to go in another direction. Austin had a minor injury for a month. Austin was paired with Kurt Angle and feuded against Jericho and Benoit. This culminated with a Triple Threat match at King of the Ring , in which Austin faced the former tag team champions.
The feud ended at that point, as Benoit had neck surgery after the match, sidelining him for the following year. As The Invasion storyline began and progressed, McMahon, was watching helplessly as his empire was crumbling around him due to The Alliance luring more and more talent away from the WWF, and his biggest allies, Austin and Angle, too busy sucking up to him and bickering amongst themselves to successfully counter the Alliance. Austin made it known that he was against teaming with Angle, whom Austin saw as both a threat to his title, as well as an annoying tag along.
Though intending to fire up Austin, it backfired and only seemed to hurt his feelings, as he promptly left the arena, dejected. This was all part of the setup for a swerve at the event, where Austin betrayed the WWF team and partner Angle to help the Alliance win, as Austin assumed leadership of the group. The reason why Austin did this was because he felt that McMahon was grooming Angle to take over his spot, and that he was "unappreciated" when McMahon insisted he return to the old Austin. Austin lost and regained his title in a feud with Angle, who was put over by Austin as a threat.
Austin lost the title to Angle at Unforgiven before regaining it on the October 8 , episode of Raw. Angle then joined the Alliance. Austin and his team lost after Angle betrayed him, thus ending the Invasion angle. Austin then had a beer bash with Flair, turning Austin face once again.
After that, Austin continued another feud with Booker T. In one angle, Austin and Booker T fought in a grocery store which Austin won. By , Austin's spot as top face in the WWF was not secure as it had been, as Triple H was set to return from injury. They feuded with Austin and The Rock.

Austin took a week long break following WrestleMania, refusing to show up for the following night's Raw. Austin returned on the April 1, episode of Raw , the first of the new " brand extension " era. The show was centered on which show he would sign with, and he ultimately chose Raw.
Austin entered a feud with the Undertaker that resulted in a number one contenders match for the WWF Undisputed Championship at Backlash , which Austin lost. Austin's last appearance was on June 3, when he defeated Flair in a match where Flair became Austin's servant. After Austin no-showed an episode of Raw , the angle was dropped. Austin had decided to walk out again because of bad storylines that were presented to him by the creative team. This time though, he did not return for almost nine months. Austin, however, vetoed any matches that would result in him losing and ultimately walked out of the company when the writing staff wanted Austin to lose to Lesnar.
Austin later explained that he thought hot-shotting a victory did no favors to either side, as it made Austin look weak losing to a rookie and did not give Lesnar a proper stage for such a big win over a star of the magnitude that Austin held. Further fanning the flames amongst Austin's growing number of detractors was a well-publicized domestic dispute incident between Austin and his wife Debra. Austin would wrestle only one match between then and WrestleMania in another short match against Bischoff on Raw , but was then defeated by The Rock at WrestleMania XIX , who returned about the same time as a smug, "sell out" villain, which ultimately became Austin's last official match in WWE to date.
The move to the role of Co-General Manager was a way to keep Austin on-camera while limiting Austin's in-ring performance due to long running injuries wearing him down throughout his career. On the November 17, edition of Raw , Austin was "fired" from Raw as the result of a stipulation in a match at Survivor Series where Austin's hand-picked team of wrestlers failed to beat Bischoff's team of wrestlers.
