"See through all my career, I've wrestled in alotta countries..."
Rick Steiner: WOOF! Scott Steiner: Team 3D, you guys are outta your minds, comin' to Atlanta, Georgia, where the Steiner brothers got their start, in professional wrestling! You guys are outta your minds, makin' it a table match! This night, we're gonna beat you atchoo own game! And afters all's sun'n'done, you're gonna be taking some splinters outta your FAAAT ASSES, all night night, cause you got some FAAAT ASSES! Know what chance you have? You have no chance, but you had a chance, was so could run lickety-split! But you can't run, 'cause you got some FAAAT ASSES! After all's sud'n'done, we're gonna have a tailgate party for ALL MY FREAKS out there, in Atlanta, Georgia!"
Breakup Breakout: 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.
The Brute: 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.
Call Back: 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.
The Casanova: Often followed by women in WCW, those being Tylene Buck, April Hunter, Kim Kanner, Midajah (his main valet), and Pamela Paulshock.
Casanova Wannabe: Attempts to woo women in TNA were played up more for laughs, usually interviewer Lauren Thompson trying to politely downplay his direct advances.
Darker and Edgier: The mid-90s makeover, with emphasis on the "edgier" (to ridiculous levels).
Drives Like Crazy: In Real Life, 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.
Early-Installment Weirdness: 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 The Road Warriors at Starrcade 89, he's arguably the smallest of the four.
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...
Genius Bruiser: He did, after all, graduate from a "highly educated university".
Heel-Face Revolving Door: 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.
Gimmick Matches: 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.
Heroic RROD: 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!
I Call Him Mr Happy: 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.
Jerkass Has a Point: According to Lance Storm, 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 matchnote It was actually at WCW Clash of the Champions XIV on TBS 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.
Jerk Jock: Both in kayfabe and in Real Life. Basically, you have to show him you won't be bullied around or he'll tear you to pieces.
Affably Evil: 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.
Kavorka Man: That obnoxious, loudmouth bully with the ridiculous physique seemingly has "freaks" in every town. During Test's Domestic Abuser 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!"
Logic Bomb: 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 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 WCW promo where he tells Mean Gene he's going to get even with Goldberg for "fractioning" his face.
Mind Screw: 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, just see it for yourself.
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 Atomic F-Bomb, 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!"
Real Life Writes the Plot: 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.
Ring Oldies: Still had an impressive physique and wrestled at fifty.
Signature Move: 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.
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 Kurt Angle 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 McJoe, the numbers don't lie, and they spell disaster for you at Sacrifice.")
