The Steiner Brothers(Scott and Rick Steiner) are set to be inducted into the 2022 WWE Hall Of Fame. They will join Queen Sharmell, Vader, Shad Gaspard (Warrior Award), and The Undertaker in the Class Of 2022. WWE also made an official announcement. Given that Scott Steiner has had a fair share of beef with WWE, it would be a huge moment when he makes his return to the company for the induction ceremony. He recently spoke about WWE Hall of Famer Hulk Hogan, who has found himself in multiple controversial incidents in the past.
Scott Steiner labels Hulk Hogan as ‘racist’
Steiner labeled Hulk Hogan a “racist” and accused him of destroying TNA Wrestling. He said[via Celebretainment]:
“Dumb*** Dixie Carter brought in racist Hulk Hogan and all those other guys. That’s what killed it and ran it into the ground. Of course, I let my feelings be known.”
His comments come after Hogan was left disgraced in 2015 when a transcript from a sex tape recording – which was secretly made in 2007 when the ‘Rocky III star was suffering from depression – was leaked ahead of his trial against Gawker. It had revealed him using the ‘N-word’ during a conversation about his daughter Brooke Hogan’s then-boyfriend.
Steiner also stated that the star’s run was a bad period for IMPACT, with the focus on aging stars rather than the young talent, they have also had more personal issues over the years. It was noted that their long-running feud worsened when Hogan’s wife Jennifer accused him of accosting her after she and him landed at a San Jose airport in March 2015 ahead of ‘WWE WrestleMania 31’, which took place in Santa Clara, California, and told her that he was coming for her husband when he touched down in the city.
Referring to the incident, Steiner claimed:
“The piece of s**t tried to get me arrested saying that I assaulted his wife at the airport. Thank god that they had cameras there.”
