• Jim Ross Explains Why Scott Steiner’s 2002-2004 WWE Run Bombed
On a recent episode of his weekly ‘Grilling JR’ podcast, former WWF/WWE commentator Jim Ross spoke about Scott Steiner’s 2002-2004 WWE run, and explained why he wasn’t the great, invincible WCW main eventer anymore that he was in 2000 and 2001.
Here’s what Good Old J.R. said about Big Poppa Pump’s WWE run:
“Yeah, he wasn’t, Scotty wasn’t healthy to the level that he could go out and be the athlete that he was coming out of Michigan.
His body was taking a toll and a lot of those big muscle guys have that issue and I just think Scotty wasn’t healthy.
His injuries and culmination of injuries simply did not allow him to have his normal, back in the day, athletic match.
Plus, he was getting older.”
Scott Steiner wrestled for pretty much all the major professional wrestling promotions in the United States, including Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling (1989-1992 & 1996-2001), the World Wrestling Federation (1992-1994) / WWE (2002-2004), Paul Heyman’s Extreme Championship Wrestling (1995) and Dixie Carter’s Total Nonstop Action! (2006-2012).
In 2022, The Steiner Brothers were inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame by Rick’s son, Scott’s nephew Bron Breakker.
