.
  • Animal Motif
  • Badass Beard
  • Badass Biker: After the Steiner Brothers split.
  • Bully Bulldog: He did have a very slight resemblance to a bulldog, and he invoked the trope with his wrestling style and taunts.
  • Cain and Abel: After they split as a team, he and Scott fought a lot.
  • Catchphrase
    "If you want some, come get some! And if you don't like me, bite me!"
  • Leotard of Power
  • Lightning Bruiser: In his prime
  • Nice Character, Mean Actor: Rick Steiner played an easy going babyface character for much of his career. He was also notoriously nasty backstage, often no-selling and sandbagging for his opponents, and shooting on them (beating them up for real) just to prove he could.
  • Red Baron: "The Dog Faced Gremlin"

  • Arch-Enemy: Arn Anderson
