Scott Steiner Rips WWE’s Current Product, Talks About Not Getting To Feud with The Rock, More

Published On 07/05/2014 | By Staff | News

– Rodolfo Roman spoke with Scott Steiner at the Florida Supercon event this weekend. Below are a few highlights:

Not getting the chance to feud with The Rock:
“I wrestled everyone. The first time I went to the 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 is. That’s the one guy I wanted to start off with. Vince brought all of the WCW guys up but basically Vince basically treated us like shit…treated us all the same. But they destroyed everything… me Goldberg, Nash were all treated the same way.”

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

WWE’s current product:
“That PG shit is hard to watch. It doesn’t make sense. 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.”

    Steiner was good, but he’s believing his own hype a little too much.

      Are you kidding? Scott is a Legend in the business.

      • jmull

        Only to you and Scott Steiner lol.

        • bleedcoltsblue

          You mean to me, Scott Steiner, and anyone with half a brain. Its ok, by your pic it just seems that you are too young to know better.

            Dude was average on the mic. Sure, he’s a “genetic freak” but he was lousy in the ring. What did he ever do? What are his classic matches/fueds? Filler tag matches with his brother?

          • bleedcoltsblue

            Filler tag matches with his brother? What are you, 10? Lets see, he and Rick revolutionized the tag team division for almost a decade in three different companies and two different countries, he’s a multi time world champion, His whole nWo run and heel turn was a classic. Hell, he was the first MUSCLE GUY to use a hurracanranna regularly during his matches. And if you don’t think his fued with DDP was memorable then I’d like a hit of what you tend to smoke.

            Like I said, you speak like someone who wished he knew better… that’s why you can research stuff though. #thumbsup #googlehelps

            I’m 30. So is Rick a legend too? The Steiners revolutionized the tag division like Cena has revolutionized the Heavyweight division — with an obnoxious push. There is a reason he was a tag guy so long and never a singles championship (his one and only) until the last days of WCW. Like I said, he was good, but not a legend.

          • bleedcoltsblue

            Yes, Rick is a legend. I think their resume’s speak for themselves. Rick was one of the most popular wrestlers of his time, which is why Scott became so popular as well when he introduced. No, they didn’t get obnoxious ‘I can beat the world no matter the odds’ push like Cena. They were involved in CLASSIC feuds with some of the other legends of their times (Horsemen, Road Warriors, Harlem Heat, Midnight Express etc) and that wouldn’t be the case if they weren’t legitimate.
            Scott was being groomed for a singles push in WCW in the early 90s before he and Rick went to WWE as tag partners. He won a singles championship (TV title from LEGEND Ricky the Dragon Steamboat) and had a WCW Championship match against (LEGEND) Rick Flair that went to a time limit draw by 1992. Scott hasn’t tagged regularly with his brother since 1997 so your whole never a singles guy argument is toast.
            When belts MEANT something, these guys won them… they put asses in the seats and were the inspiration for several wrestlers of the last two generations.
            If you’re only 30 I can see why you missed this. But that is why elders like me are here to set you straight.
