I'm a Warrior fan, so this is right up my alley!

What's most interesting, is that his degree actually was in education! For real!

That's kind of what makes his whole math promo funny. He actually got all of the math right! Kind of impressive, in the midst of all of that craziness.


On a side-note, when I watch this promo from 1989, it's unimaginable that this is the same Scott. Even his voice was entirely different:

Spoiler for spoiler:


The only similarity to nowadays, is the cadence in his voice.

Re: The Other Side: Big Poppa Pump Scott Steiner

It's hard to imagine a world devoid of all the entertaining moments Big Poppa Pump has given us since ballooning out to comical proportions. But I very much preferred Steiner Bros. Scott to whatever he became when he dyed his hair. It's hard to explain, it's like someone assembled a bunch of sausages into a sort of bulbous humanoid form... Anyway, I don't just mean the look either, the Steiners were great as a tag team, and appeared to be very skilled. They were the suplex masters before Taz claimed that title. And the Steiner Screwdriver was deadly looking. That seemed like a totally different guy than the Scott who tried to give Test an axe handle off the apron and face planted on the floor instead.

Just goes to show that a character can be created far from what you expect.

Mick Foley said that he would make up suplexes as he went along.

He's even more normal here in this video. He was still a bit in character in that last video (talking about ladies resting on his arm). Here he actually mentions his wife (says that she's the only person he fears, lol), and is just even more normal.

I got a kick out of his reaction when the guy asked him why he was wearing glasses. You could tell that at first Scott thought that the guy was calling him old or something. It is kind of endearing seeing him sit there with his prescription glasses, lol.

From the 4:08 mark until the 6:00 mark, and then from the 9:05 mark until the 10:10 mark:




Also interesting that he publicly had heat with Hogan even back then. He didn't really air TNA out the first time he left there, except for these insinuations about Hogan in this video. Seems to have flown under the radar at the time.

Re: The Other Side: Big Poppa Pump Scott Steiner

My bad, he was even more out of character in this part. This is what I was thinking of.

From the 1:42 mark on. Mentions his kids thinking that he's cool, because of his wrestling character, lol:




I liked his comments about liking being the bad guy.

Don't understand the point of WWE bringing him in as a face, and then making him fully scripted, no less. What's the point of Scott Steiner if you're not gonna let him be himself, and just rip? How could you take the great thing about someone, and just neuter it? So stupid.
