DragonKingKarl Classic Wrestling Marathon: Scott Steiner


Big Poppa Pump. The Big Bad Booty Daddy. One half of the Steiner Brothers. Scott Steiner started off as a super-athlete working smaller promotions, then came to WCW in the early 1990s where he was paired with his brother Rick in one of the most dominant tag teams of the era.

After a run in both WCW and WWF, Steiner evolved into one of the most insane, out of control forces ever seen in wrestling. His promos were crazy and his matches were frightening. 

Today, host Karl Stern looks at the force of nature that is Scott Steiner.

Karl followed Steiner from his earliest days in the WWA promotion, wrestling the likes of the Great Wojo. Steiner then came to Memphis and it was clear he was going to be a superstar, and it was only a matter of time before he was paired up with his brother Rick.

When that happened in WCW, the Steiner Brothers became a world wide wrecking crew winning titles not only in the United States but in Japan as well. The Steiners in many ways mirrored the Road Warriors from a decade earlier, becoming top stars in all the major promotions of the time.

When the two finally split up, Scott Steiner cut his hair short, bleached it, and became an entirely different force. By the time WCW ended, Steiner was one of the most controversial stars in wrestling.
