Some Great Scott Steiner Stories

Scott had insulted DDMe’s wife (C word) before Nitro. So, near show’s end, DDMe tried to exact revenge by sucker-punching Scott backstage. DDMe counted on A) landing one good shot and B) other wrestlers breaking up the fight before Scott could hurt DDMe too badly.

Problem was, DDMe’s punch wasn’t so good. And nobody wanted to break up the fight because everybody wanted to see DDMe get his ass kicked. Nobody stepped in until it became apparent that Steiner was intent on plucking out DDMe’s eye. Cooler heads prevailed, but barely.

Another time, Scott went to the ring during Nitro and cut a BRUTAL promo on Flair: “You belong where you’re at, in WCW, ‘cause WCW sucks!” Scott called Ric an “ass-kissing, backstabbing, butt-sucking bastard.” Totally unscripted. The TV time wasn’t even allotted to Steiner. He just went out there. Nobody stopped him because everybody was scared to death of him.

The night Scott pounded DDMe was the same night I refused to shake DDMe’s hand backstage. I got fired. Steiner didn’t. That’s OK. Both events combined to make the night a good memory as far as I’m concerned.

I love Scott Steiner. Holler if you hear me.
