Report: Scott Steiner Potentially Leaving TNA Wrestling

Nick Paglino

The PWTorch Newsletter is reporting that TNA star Scott Steiner has been telling friends backstage in TNA that he does not plan to work for the company much longer. Steiner is very close friends with Jeff Jarrett, and since Jarrett’s TNA future is on the fence, it seems as if Steiner feels like there’s no reason for him to be in TNA if Jeff doesn’t return sometime soon.

It’s being said that Steiner had initially planned to retire at the age of 40, and that he was financially secure at that age which means he doesn’t need the money now that he’s 47 years old and has been earning steady money with TNA and prior to that with WWE. Additonally, Steiner has been working through a number of nagging injuries for many years now, so it seems as if all things combined signal that he no longer needs to be working for TNA. Concerning Steiner’s injury status, a wrestler once said in a past report that "If Scott has a decent, hard match where he takes five or ten bumps, he is feeling much more pain than theaverage beat up wrestler [and he feels it for up to] 24 hours after the match. […] His back is so bad, watching him go through a 12 step process to sit in a car seat is excruciating.”
