Former TNA, WCW, WWE wrestler Scott Steiner on The Roman Show


Former TNA, WCW, WWE superstar Big Papa Pump Scott Steiner said that he’s worked with pretty much everyone he wanted, except The Rock.

In an exclusive interview with The Roman Show during Florida SuperCon July 3-6 at the Miami Beach Convention Center, Steiner discussed the past.

“I wrestled everyone,” he said.

“The first time I went to WWE back in 2003 I wanted to go against The Rock. That never happened. He is one of the top guys of all time. The box office shows that. He was one of the most talented wrestlers there was. That’s the one guy I wanted to start off with. Vince brought all the WCW guys up, but Vince basically treated us like s#$t…treated us all the same. They destroyed every one of us -- me, Goldberg, Nash -- we were all treated the same way.”

He also voiced his opinion on any Rock critics.

“Who can talk bad about The Rock?” he said. “He’s entertaining. He puts asses in the seats. He proved that, moving up to bigger and better things.”

Steiner who also teamed with his brother, Rick, known as the Steiner brothers said he can’t watch the current product.

“That PG s$%t is hard to watch. It doesn’t make sense,” he said. “You got South Park serving up a storm. You got all these shows. Wrestling was the first natural reality show. We created that genre. That was reality TV live. It started with Raw in the Manhattan Center.”

He also discusses being inducted into the Dan Gables Museum, not wanting to compete in bodybuilding, Bray Wyatt, The Usos and more.

Rodolfo Roman of The Roman Show is a freelance writer, TV producer, reporter.
