Scott Steiner

Scott Steiner is a 6’10”, 280-pound professional wrestler. He makes his living on the wrestling mat through his ability to mercilessly lay out anyone he faces, but his powers of influence reach farther. As a professional wrestler, he’s met many celebrities and looked up to them as he pursued his wrestling career.

Big

In 1991, the Steiners worked for New Japan Pro Wrestling while under contract with WCW and WWF. On March 21, 1991 they defeated Hiroshi Hase and Kensuke Sasaki for the IWGP Tag Team Championship. They dropped the titles to Hase and Keiji Muto on November 5. Then On June 26, 1992 they defeated Big Van Vader and Bam Bam Bigelow for the titles. They dropped them to Scott Norton and Tony Halme on November 22. During their time in WWF they only did a few matches.

On July 28, 1995, The Steiner Brothers debuted in Extreme Championship Wrestling (ECW), at The Orange County Fairgrounds in Middletown, New York, defeating Dudley Dudley and Vampire Warrior. On August 4, in The Flagstaff in Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, they defeated Dudley Dudley and 2 Cold Scorpio. They made their ECW Arena debut on August 5, at Wrestlepalooza, teaming with Eddie Guerrero to lose to Scorpio, Dean Malenko, and Cactus Jack.

Poppa

Scott then adopted the nicknames "White Thunder", in reference to his bleached hair and goatee and his all-white singlet, and "Superstar", as a homage to "Superstar" Billy Graham. However, he soon discarded both nicknames, and instead proclaimed himself as "Big Poppa Pump". Steiner further altered his attire as he began wearing sunglasses and chain mail headgear as part of his ring entrance outfit.

Following a brief run in ECW in 1995, The Steiners returned to WCW in 1996, battling Harlem Heat and The Outsiders for the WCW Tag Team Titles. But as The New World Order’s power expanded, Scott Steiner saw an opportunity to achieve a higher level of success beyond the tag team division. During a Tag Team Title defense against The Outsiders at SuperBrawl VIII, Scott turned on his brother and joined The nWo. In the months that followed, Big Poppa Pump would be unleashed.

When Steiner returned backstage, DDP confronted "Big Poppa Pump," and a physical altercation ensued. Many "shoot" interviews online discussed this incident with various people claiming they were there, with Buff Bagwell even stating that Steiner tried to remove Page’s eye during the fight. Rick Steiner has also reported on an episode of The Hannibal TV that Page arrived with numerous security guards to confront his brother. (Source: prowrestlingstories.com)
