On this date in WCW history: Abdullah The Butcher fries in the electric chair
Cageside Seats - over 3 years
On October 27, 1991, WCW unveiled the "Chamber of Horrors,' aptly named for how horrible this insipid melee was despite featuring the team of Sting, El Gigante, Rick and Scott Steiner taking on Big Van Vader, Cactus Jack, Abdullah The Butcher and The Diamond Studd. It was the opening match at Halloween Havoc and damn near killed the heat for the entire show. The biggest issue was that fans just couldn't make heads or tails of what was happening inside the chamber -- even less so when the electric chair was lowered. And speaking of the hot seat, the only way to win the match was to strap your opponent in and flip the switch, death row style. In other words, the usual classy stuff from WCW. Abdullah took one for the team but I have to imagine even a guy who blades as much as he did had to be just a wee bit scared with all that electricity and pyrotechnics shooting off around him. Any Cagesiders out there unlucky enough to witness this clusterfuck as it went down?

Saturday Slapstick: Falls count anywhere
Cageside Seats - over 4 years
Welcome back to "Slapstick Saturdays," Cagesiders, where your old pal Hollywood Holland pokes fun at every botch, blooper and bomb the word of professional wrestling has ever given us. And if pro wrestling fails were currency, then former World Championship Wrestling (WCW) and World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) superstar Scott Steiner would be the richest man in town. Back in 2003, "Big Poppa Pump" was embroiled in some half-baked program from WWE that involved an on-again, off-again relationship with tag-team partner Andrew "Test" Martin. Stacy Keibler had the thankless role of manager, which for all intents and purposes, made her Catherine to their Jules et Jim. Hooray for love triangles! Anyway, Martin was all up in Keibler's face when she tried to accompany Steiner down the ramp prior to their match at the Bad Blood pay-per-view. Things got a little heated and "Freakzilla," who was already in the ring, came forth and leapt to her defense. Literally. Unfort ...

TNA Slammiversary results and reactions from last night (June 10): Fun show is fun
Cageside Seats - over 4 years
Total Nonstop Action (TNA) Wrestling broke away from the Impact Zone last night (Sun., June 10, 2012) to hold its Slammiversary pay-per-view (PPV) event in Arlington, Texas, in front of a hot crowd. Let's get to reactions to the show: TNA has this habit of making its weekly television show, Impact, almost unbearable, and then turning around and bringing it hard on pay-per-view (PPV). That held true again last night, as I found Slammiversary to be an entertaining three hours that I in no way regretting watching. Sure, it had its low points but nothing is perfect and I don't think it will get too much better than what they put together last night. Bravo. There should be a clause written in to Austin Aries and Samoa Joe's contracts that says they have to wrestle each other at least once on PPV no more than three months apart. That match last night was main event caliber between two talented workers, particularly Aries, whose workrate is unmatched at present time. S ...

Brock Lesnar returns to WWE: Scott Steiner, Diamond Dallas Page and others give their thoughts
Cageside Seats - almost 5 years
MMACanada.net was on location at this past weekend's WrestleReunion convention in Toronto and had the opportunity to chat with several professional wrestling personalities about the growing popularity of mixed martial arts (MMA). That topic of discussion obviously brought up the name of the one man who has reached the pinnacle in each field. No, not Ken Shamrock. Brock Lesnar, of course. They spoke with "Big Poppa Pump" Scott Steiner who was taking time off from writing hilarious tweets, Diamond Dallas Page who was probably fresh off a killer yoga sesh and others including "Mean" Gene Okerlund, Maria Kanellis and The Honky Tonk Man. It's a pretty interesting video which gives some insight into how MMA is viewed by some of pro wrestling's most tenured stars. Check it out.

Twitter angle: WWE sends Dean Ambrose home thanks to Mick Foley
Cageside Seats - almost 5 years
Twitter angles are all the rage nowadays. Just last week, we had a disgruntled Scott Steiner "shooting" on Hulk Hogan and Eric Bischoff in what is now believed to be an angle to set up Big Poppa Pump's TNA return, while WWE's tag team champion Epico voiced his displeasure about being consigned to a dark match at WrestleMania 28. Now, it's Dean Ambrose's turn, as he takes to the next level his underground feud with Mick Foley, which is a very unique way for WWE to get a developmental talent exposure before he debuts on the main roster and shows that they have big plans in store for the former Jon Moxley. Ambrose made the news over WrestleMania weekend by staging a highly believable confrontation with Foley at a hotel while he was chatting with fans. After introducing himself, Ambrose got in Foley's face and told him he was a criminal and needed to be held accountable for the lost generation of teenagers who ruined their lives by emulating his stunts in backyard wrestling ma ...

Scott Steiner leaves TNA, shoots on Hulk Hogan and Eric Bischoff on Twitter
Cageside Seats - almost 5 years
In the latest Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer reported that Scott Steiner had decided to leave TNA instead of re-signing with the company when his contract recently expired, likely upset at how little he had been used by management of late: Scott Steiner (Scott Rechsteiner, 49) is off the TNA roster because his contract expired and he decided against signing an extension. He hadn't been used in months on television so he wasn't a major part of plans, which may have been why he didn't care to sign the new deal. Really, if Steiner has indeed left TNA, then he did them a big favour, as at his age and immobility he's expensive deadwood taking up vital television time that could go toward establishing their next generation of stars, even though he still has presence as a monster heel and can cut a mean promo. However, we can't be certain that Big Poppa Pump is gone from TNA for good when he took to his Twitter page to bury Hulk Hogan, Eric Bischoff and Bruc ...

    More Details Hide Details In October 2002, Rechsteiner signed a three-year contract with World Wrestling Entertainment, and returned to WWE television after an eight-year absence at Survivor Series in Madison Square Garden on November 17. There, Scott Steiner attacked Matt Hardy and Christopher Nowinski after they delivered a promo insulting New York City, establishing him as a face. Over the following weeks, General Managers Eric Bischoff and Stephanie McMahon both courted Steiner, each trying to sign him to their respective brand, Raw or SmackDown! Bischoff was ultimately successful, after McMahon rejected Steiner's sexual advances. Once on Raw, Steiner feuded with World Heavyweight Champion Triple H, leading to title matches at the Royal Rumble and No Way Out. Steiner won the first match by disqualification after Triple H attacked him with a sledgehammer and lost the second match via pinfall. On April 14, Steiner faced off against Nowinski in a debate over the Iraq War. Later that year, Steiner formed a tag team with Test, with Stacy Keibler as their manager. The team lasted several months, and feuded with La Résistance. They broke up after Test turned heel and began misogynistically treating Keibler.

  • 2000
    Age 37

    More Details Hide Details
    On the February 7, 2000 episode of Nitro, Rechsteiner angered WCW officials by making disparaging non-kayfabe remarks toward World Championship Wrestling and Ric Flair.
    More Details Hide Details During an in-ring promo, Rechsteiner claimed that when Flair appeared on WCW programming, "the people at home, all they did was grab their remote, change the channel to the WWF, and watch Stone Cold – a person you and your own friends got fired from here, 'cause you're a jealous old bastard!" He then called Flair an "ass-kissin', backstabbin', butt-suckin' bastard", before ending the tirade with the comment "WCW sucks!". He was suspended for two weeks with pay for the incident. In January 2001, Rechsteiner was arrested after assaulting Randall Mankins, an emergency medical technician employed by the Kernersville, North Carolina fire department. As part of a storyline on an episode of Nitro, Mankins entered the ring to tend to Michael Modest and Christopher Daniels, who were selling leg injuries inflicted by Scott Steiner. As he did, Rechsteiner struck him twice. The following morning he was arrested and charged with assault. The charges were dropped after it was determined Rechsteiner was not made aware Mankins was an actual EMT and not an actor. That same year, Rechsteiner also fought backstage with WCW road agent Terry Taylor.
    He continued to be a top heel into 2000 and joined the reformed nWo.
    More Details Hide Details After the nWo disbanded again, Steiner became one of the central members of Vince Russo and Eric Bischoff's New Blood stable. At Spring Stampede, he competed in a tournament for the WCW United States Championship, defeating The Wall by disqualification when he blinded him, which caused Wall to accidentally chokeslam the referee through a table instead. He then defeated Mike Awesome by submission with his finisher, the Steiner Recliner before ultimately winning the tournament after defeating Sting in the finals, albeit due to interference from Sting's previous opponent Vampiro.
  • 1999
    Age 36
    Rechsteiner was subsequently arrested and, on March 17, 1999, pleaded guilty to aggravated assault and making terroristic threats (felonies carrying a maximum sentence of 30 years imprisonment).
    More Details Hide Details Under Georgian first-offender rules (which stipulate that a first-time offender will be found not guilty if they do not violate the terms of their probation) Judge C. Michael Roach sentenced Rechsteiner to ten days in the Cherokee County jail. He also placed him on a seven-year probation order, ordered him to pay USD$25,000 in fines, restitution, and legal fees, and ordered him to perform 200 hours of community service. Toward the end of his tenure in World Championship Wrestling, Rechsteiner engaged in a rivalry with wrestler Diamond Dallas Page after insulting Page's wife Kimberly during an interview. Kimberly had become upset with Rechsteiner after alleging drug paraphernalia found backstage belonged to Tammy Lynn Sytch, an accusation which (despite Sytch's vehement denial) led to her release from WCW. The acrimony between Rechsteiner and Page eventually escalated into violence, with the two men engaging in a brief locker room fight before being separated by other wrestlers.
    On a December 1999 episode of Nitro, Steiner cut a promo to announce his retirement from professional wrestling due to this injury.

Scott then adopted the nicknames "White Thunder", in reference to his bleached hair and goatee and his all-white singlet, and "Superstar", as a homage to "Superstar" Billy Graham.
