With only four days left for WWE to fill out the Hall of Fame Class of 2022, which already features Vader, The Undertaker, Sharmell and Warrior Award recipient Shad Gaspard, The Steiner Brothers have officially been added after months of rumors.
With runs in WCW, WWE, ECW, NJPW and Impact, The Steiners are one of the most well-traveled teams in the history of pro wrestling. They’re also one of the most accomplished teams in wrestling history, with the duo winning seven WCW Tag Team Championships, two WWF Tag Team Championships, two IWGP Tag Team Championships, as well as the WCW United States Tag Team Championships, PWA Tag Team Championships and Mid-Atlantic Tag Team Championships together. As solo stars, both are multi-time WCW Television Champions and Scott is a former WCW World Heavyweight Champion.
While Scott is perhaps better known as a solo star under the Big Bad Booty Daddy persona, it’s his innovative tag work with his brother that put him on the map, more specifically matches with teams such as DOOM, The Headshrinkers, the combination of Masahiro Chono and Hiroshi Hase and the team of Sting and Lex Luger. Scott has been vocal in previous years that the WWE Hall of Fame is a farce and in general hasn’t been on the best of terms with the company since leaving a second time in 2004, making the induction a shock to many. However, Rick’s son, Bron Breakker, currently competes on the NXT brand, where he is a former NXT Champion.
Bodyslam congratulates the Steiner Brothers on their WWE Hall of Fame nod. You can watch the Hall of Fame after SmackDown this Friday on Peacock in the United States and the WWE Network overseas.
