SAN ANTONIO (AP) _ A trial date has been set for the pro wrestling star known as ``Stone Cold'' Steve Austin, charged with hitting his wife earlier this year.

The 37-year-old from San Antonio, whose given name is Steve Williams, is facing a misdemeanor charge, assault causing bodily injury, stemming from a June 15 domestic disturbance at the couple's home.

He is set for trial on Oct. 9.

Austin said Friday that he's reconciled with Debra Gale Williams, his wife of two years. ``We're doing great, as a matter of fact,'' he said. ``I just want to get past this.''

He recently dropped divorce proceedings against her.
