'''Scott Steiner''', AKA Big Poppa Pump, AKA The Genetic Freak, AKA The Big Bad Booty Daddy, AKA Scott Rechsteiner (real name Scott Carl Rechsteiner) is a wrestler maybe best known for his distinctive chainmail coif and multicolored beard, his obscenely muscled figure and his tendency to go overboard when presented with a mic.

He works either alone or as one half of The Steiner Brothers, a tag team with his [[RealLifeWritesThePlot real brother]], Rick. After starting in Wrestling/DickTheBruiser's World Wrestling Association in Indianapolis in 1986, he went on to work in Wrestling/JerryLawler's Continental Wrestling Association in Memphis before joining his brother Rick in late Spring-early summer 1989 in Wrestling/{{WCW}}. They stayed until around the end of 1992 and debuted in Wrestling/{{WWE}} at the start of 1993. They left in 1994 and went to their other home in Wrestling/NewJapanProWrestling. They also made some appearances in Wrestling/{{ECW}} in 1995 before returning to WCW in early 1996, staying all the way to the bitter end. Aside from international tours, they largely went their separate ways after that. Scott returned to WWE at ''Wrestling/SurvivorSeries 2002'', had a notoriously bad match with Wrestling/TripleH at the 2003 ''Wrestling/RoyalRumble'', and stuck around until 2004. Scott has had a few runs in Wrestling/{{TNA}} since 2006, either on his own or teaming with Rick, along with various independent and Japanese appearances. Among his in-ring achievements, he is a former [[http://www.wrestling-titles.com/wcw/wcw-h.html WCW World Heavyweight Champion]], a former 2x [[http://www.wrestling-titles.com/wcw/wcw-us-h.html WCW United States Heavyweight Champion]], a former 2x [[http://www.wrestling-titles.com/wcw/wcw-tv.html WCW World Television Champion]], a former 6x [[http://www.wrestling-titles.com/wcw/wcw-t.html WCW World Tag Team Champion]], a former [[http://www.wrestling-titles.com/wcw/wcw-us-t.html WCW United States Tag Team Champion]], a former 2x [[http://www.wrestling-titles.com/wwe/wwe-world-t.html WWE World Tag Team Champion]], a former 2x [[http://www.wrestling-titles.com/japan/newjapan/iwgp-t.html New Japan Pro Wrestling IWGP Tag Team Champion]] and a former [[http://www.wrestlng-titles.com/us/tna/tna-t.html TNA World Tag Team Champion]]. Unlike the other tag team titles mentioned here, he held that last one with Wrestling/BookerT.

!!! "TO ALL MY FREAKS OUT THERE, BIG POPPA PUMP IS YOUR HOOKUP! HOLLA IF YOU READ MY TROPES!":
* {{Angrish}}: His native language.
* ArchEnemy: The Varsity Club (Wrestling/KevinSullivan and Wrestling/MikeRotunda)[[note]]He'd run into Rotundo again in 1993 during the Steiners-Money Inc. ([[Wrestling/TedDiBiase Ted [=DiBiase=]]]][=/=]Irwin R. Schyster) series in WWE[[/note]], Doom (Wrestling/RonSimmons and Butch Reed), Wrestling/TheNastyBoys, the Miracle Violence Connection (Wrestling/DrDeathSteveWilliams and Terry "Bamm Bamm" Gordy), the Quebecers (Jacques Rougeau and Pierre Carl Ouelette), Harlem Heat (Wrestling/BookerT and Stevie Ray), the Outsiders (Wrestling/ScottHall and Wrestling/KevinNash), Wrestling/DiamondDallasPage, Wrestling/{{Goldberg}}...The Steiners feuded with a LOT of teams, and, ever since his big heel turn in 1998, Scott's tended to make a lot of enemies.
* ArtisticLicenseHistory: No Scott, Pearl Harbour did not bomb the Germans.
* {{Badass}}
** BadassBeard: It's more like a [=badass=], multicolor goatee, but still!
* BashBrothers: Literally, with Rick.
* BerserkButton: You really shouldn't use the word 'hurricanrana' around Scott Steiner.
* BigDamnHeroes: His return to TNA on 1/26/11 had him saving Wrestling/KurtAngle, Matt Morgan, and Crimson from a nine on one Immortal beatdown.
* BigLittleBrother: Nearing the end of their initial run, Scott once boasted that Rick was the older brother but he was the bigger brother.
* BlondGuysAreEvil[=/=]ExpositoryHairstyleChange: Scott turned his hair bleach blond when he betrayed his brother and joined the Wrestling/NewWorldOrder.
* BreakupBreakout: With his brother Rick. Ironically during their tag team days the team was considered "Rick Steiner and his less interesting brother". Then Scott turned heel and started the Big Poppa Pump gimmick, while Rick floundered in the upper midcard and then turned heel. Rick made a pretty good face, but was a complete heat vacuum as a heel.
* TheBrute: For the NWO during his time in it, for team Eric Bischoff at Survivor Series and for the main event mafia prior to its acquisition of Samoa Joe, or maybe not if you consider Joe more of a {{sixth column}}.
* CallBack: In one promo he claims to have set up Bully Ray with Abyss's girlfriend, emphasizing she's fat. The following week, he asks if Ray went through with it, and when Ray says no, Steiner admits he can't fault him because she ''is'' fat.
* TheCasanova: Often followed by women in WCW, those being Tylene Buck, April Hunter, Kim Kanner, Midajah (his main valet), and Pamela Paulshock.
** CasanovaWannabe: Attempts to woo women in TNA were played up more for laughs, usually interviewer Lauren Thompson trying to politely downplay his direct advances.
* CatchPhrase
** "BIG POPPA PUMP IS YOUR HOOKUP! HOLLA IF YOU HEAR ME!"
** Loves to call his opponents rednecks/WHITE TRAAAASH, and/or fat, even when neither term is applicable.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}
--> "Remember when Pearl Harbor bombed the Germans!"
* CoolShades: He even wears them indoors [[SunglassesAtNight and at night]].
* DarkerAndEdgier: The mid-90s makeover, with emphasis on the "edgier" (to ridiculous levels).
* DrivesLikeCrazy: In RealLife, according to Petey Williams. On one occasion that Petey was riding with him, Steiner was barrelling down the interstate in the pouring rain at 100 miles per hour, weaving in and out of traffic, and later that night ran a red light to drive the wrong way down a one way road.
* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: Despite the look lasting for twelve years, many viewers still can't believe the mullet-ed, singlet wearing Scott from the Steiner Brothers tag team is the same as the massive, blond-haired Big Poppa Pump. During a match with Rick against Wrestling/TheRoadWarriors at ''[=Starrcade=] 89'', he's arguably the smallest of the four.
* EvilForeigner: To Mexicans while working for La Legion Extranjera in Wrestling/{{AAA}}
* [[strike:[[FiveMovesOfDoom Five]]]][[FiveMovesOfDoom Two Moves Of Doom]]
** The Steiner Recliner and various (fewer as the years go on) suplexes. He originally had a more diverse moveset, but as his steroid abuse took more and more of a toll on his body, he's become unable to perform most of them.
** He's recently reintroduced the Frankensteiner into his arsenal. Off the top turnbuckle. It's bizarre seeing somebody that size doing a move like that...
** [[LightningBruiser It's called the Frankensteiner for a]] [[{{Pun}} reason.]]
* FaceHeelTurn: In WWE, after Stacy Keibler accidentally hit him with a chair, he gradually became a supporter of Test and then of Eric Bischoff.
* FinishingMove:
** In singles, the Steiner Recliner, the Frankensteiner, and the Steiner Screwdriver
** In the Steiner Bros tag team, the Steiner Bulldog and the Steiner DDT
* FreakyIsCool: I his own words, more or less.
* GeniusBruiser: He did, after all, graduate from a "highly educated university".
* HeelFaceRevolvingDoor: Not that anyone can tell. Basically, the only thing that determines whether he is a heel or a face is who he's going to fight next.
* GimmickMatches: Scott Steiner defeated Petey Williams in a chain mail on a pole match in TNA, the winner reserving the right to wear chain mail as their entrance attire.
* HeroicRROD: If he can be called heroic. As stated above, he abuses steroids so much that he can't do any technical moves more complex than a basic belly-to-back suplex anymore and he can barely straighten his arms!
* HeroKiller: His heel world championship run during the dying days of WCW had him credited for putting Wrestling/DiamondDallasPage, Wrestling/{{Sting}}, Wrestling/BookerT, Wrestling/{{Sid|Eudy}} and Wrestling/KevinNash out of action.
* HotBlooded: Ya ''think?''
* ICallHimMrHappy: Steiner calls his The Big Dipper, after the constellation of the same name.
* {{Jerkass}}: There's several stories of Steiner bullying almost everybody backstage at WCW, and getting his title shot because everyone was legitimately afraid of him. Considering how many times he's been taken to court, there might be some truth to it.
* JerkassHasAPoint: According to Wrestling/LanceStorm, Scott Steiner's shoot rants on Ric Flair near the end of WCW actually might hold some truth to them, as Lance refers to a disastrous early 90's PPV match[[note]]It was actually at ''WCW Clash of the Champions XIV'' on [=TBS=][[/note]] between Flair and Scott (that was apparently the testing grounds for a solo Scott push, years before Big Poppa Pump) that killed Scott's momentum dead. So Scott felt that Flair sabotaged his first big push, hence the rants.
* JerkJock: Both in kayfabe and in RealLife. Basically, you have to show him you won't be bullied around or he'll tear you to pieces.
** AffablyEvil: According to Petey Williams on Colt Cabana's podcast, if you stand up to him, he'll back down and actually turn out to be a (reasonably) nice guy.
* KavorkaMan: That obnoxious, loudmouth bully with the ridiculous physique seemingly has "freaks" in every town. During Test's DomesticAbuser angle, Stacy Keibler had turned to Scott Steiner for protection, but Big Poppa Pump had another way of looking at it.
-->'''Scott:''' "She's with a real man now! A genetic freak!"
* LightningBruiser: In his prime.
* LogicBomb: Okay, so he has a reputation for being more than a little unhinged in his promos. But since he comes from "a highly educated university," when he addresses the crowd, he [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UqT0quOMMBU has to dumb himself down]].
* {{Malaproper}}: It might take awhile to get what Scott Steiner says sometimes, as he sometime pronounces words non standardly or substitutes something else in their place. Example: the infamous Wrestling/{{WCW}} promo where he tells Mean Gene he's going to get even with Wrestling/{{Goldberg}} for "fractioning" his face.
* MindScrew: In the above promo, he also managed to bring up astrological physics and quantum theories as a metaphor about how much his "freaks" lust over him. Oh hell, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UOoXZe_S3wI just see it for yourself.]]
* {{Mondegreen}}
** In his big debate on RAW with Christopher Nowinski (Yes. Really.), he opens by saying he's wrestled ''in'' a lot of countries. Unfortunately, it sounds garbled to the point that you'd think he said he's ''wrestled'' a lot of countries. Granted, [[Website/{{WrestleCrap}} Scott Steiner vs. Papua New Guinea would be a ratings diamond mine]], but...
** The famous "I'M HUNGRY!" promo from TNA Against All Odds 2007 has Scott telling someone how he's "doin' him an egg."
** Telling Wrestling/KevinNash that he has no [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FfvGECYB6Gs "Sympy"]] for him.
* MulticoloredHair: His beard
* NoIndoorVoice: From his big Poppa Pump gimmick onwards
* NoSell: He's no sold being sprayed in the face with mace (yet was put down by a chair shot from Stacy Keibler. Consistency, what's that?)
* OhCrap: Often elicits this response when he grabs a microphone.
* PecFlex: As seen in the above image, and he flexes everything else for that matter, especially biceps.
* PowerStable:
** (in WCW): [[Wrestling/NewWorldOrder the NWO]]
** (in WCW): the New Blood (originally led by Wrestling/VinceRusso and Wrestling/EricBischoff with Wrestling/JeffJarrett as the centerpiece before the group fell apart)
** (in WCW): the Magnificent Seven (w[=/=]Wrestling/RicFlair leading the Steiners, Totally Buff [Wrestling/LexLuger and Buff Bagwell], Jarrett and [[Wrestling/TheRoadWarriors Road Warrior Animal]]) in the final dying months of WCW.)
** (in TNA): The Main Event Mafia
** (in TNA): Immortal
* PrecisionFStrike
** His first words upon returning to the WWE at the 2002 Survivor Series: "Gimme a fuckin' mic!"
-->'''Jerry Lawler''': Uh-oh!
** Also counts as an AtomicFBomb, as this shout came through loud and clear even though Scott (obviously) didn't have a handheld mic.
** Has had a tendency from his early days to yell a loud "FUCK!" and being heard without the need of a mic.
** During a German WCW event: "I could shave my ass and walk backwards and look better than the women, or what you call women, here in Germany, so FUCK YOU!"
* RealLifeWritesThePlot: There is a persistent rumor that Scott Steiner got his world title push in WCW because everyone else backstage was legitimately terrified of his angry outbursts.
* RingOldies: Still had an impressive physique and wrestled at fifty.
* SignatureMove: Besides the hurricanrana he popularized, Scott Steiner is also known for kissing his bicep before landing an elbow drop and for doing near endless belly to belly suplexes. His knife edged chops also get an especially loud "woo" on account of his arm size.
* StalkerWithACrush: In TNA Scott Steiner was to Kristal Marshall, wife of Wrestling/BobbyLashley. ([[Wrestling/BookerT sound]] [[Wrestling/KurtAngle familiar]]?) It started with Steiner harassing her while she was an audience member and escalated to attempted kidnapping.
* TagTeam:
** with Rick, of course.
** In Memphis, he and Wrestling/DelWilkes[[note]]the Trooper in [[Wrestling/AmericanWrestlingAssociation the AWA]][=/=]the Patriot in [[Wrestling/AllJapanProWrestling AJPW]][=/=][=WCW=][=/=]WWE[=/=][[/note]] teamed under masks as the Wrestling Machines.
* ThisIsForEmphasisBitch: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UOoXZe_S3wI "SIZE DOES MATTER, BITCH!!"]]
* TheUnintelligible: Steiner has a tendency to do this in promos.
* UnstoppableRage
** Has been fined and taken to court many times due to instances of 'roid rage. He basically flies off the handle for everything these days.
** Ironically, it led to the biggest push of his career at the tail end of Wrestling/{{WCW}}.
* VerbalTic
** "HUH? HUH? HUH?"
** [[StupidStatementDanceMix Now has a]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JJYNaj005ws rap remix]].
** Also has a real habit of dropping f-bombs all over the place during a match.
* [[strike:[[WorkedShoot Worked]]]] [[WorkedShoot Shoot]]
** What most of his promos invariably turn into. Don't give the man that mic.
*** I do believe you mean ALWAYS give him a mic.
** Same thing goes for his long recent tirades on his Twitter page, where he chews out Wrestling/HulkHogan, Wrestling/RicFlair, Wrestling/EricBischoff and pretty mutch all of TNA.
* [[WritersCannotDoMath Wrestlers Cannot Do Math]][=/=]ArtisticLicenseStatistics
** One rather (In)famous promo by Steiner has him saying why his upcoming opponent has such a poor mathematical chance of victory. It's... a lesson in how not to apply maths to wrestling.
--> "Normally if you go one-on-one with another wrestler you have a fifty-fifty chance of winning. But I'm a genetic freak, and I'm not normal. You've got a 25%, at best, of beating me. And then you add in Wrestling/KurtAngle to the mix, your chances of winning drastically go down. See, the three-way, at Sacrifice, you have a 33 and 1/3 chance of winning, but I got a 66 and 2/3 chance of winning, cause Kurt Angle knows he can't beat me, and he's not even gonna try. So Samoa Joe, you take your 33 and 1/3 chance, minus my 25% chance, and you've got an 8 and 1/3 chance of winning at Sacrifice. But then you take my 75% chance of winning, if we was to go one-on-one, and then add 66 and 2/3 percent, I have 141 and 2/3 percent chance of winning at Sacrifice. You see [[{{Angrish}} [=McJoe=]]], the numbers don't lie, and they spell disaster for you at Sacrifice.")
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WFoC3TR5rzI&feature=feedlik Note that all of those numbers, while still nonsensical, were formed from technically correct equations.]] It also should be said Wrestling/SamoaJoe did, in fact, win that match. Those are the kinds of odds Wrestling/JohnCena is known for overcoming.
* WrestlingFamily: As mentioned above, Rick Steiner is his real brother.
* WouldHitAGirl: Took down Victoria on an episode of Raw. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Pn1Cjf5Ldk&]]
