Scott Steiner Returns to Impact Wrestling (Photos)


Scott Steiner is back on wrestling television screens, having made his return to Impact Wrestling at their Sunday taping.

Scott Steiner has been around the wrestling business for over two decades, mostly notably as part of WCW, before they were bought out in 2001. He has since had stints with WWE and TNA.

Well, Steiner showed his face on Sunday night for the first time in a while for a wrestling TV show. He appeared at the Impact Wrestling to announce his tag team with Josh Mathews for Slammiversary. They’ll take on Jeremy Borash and a partner of his choosing. It’s part of the ongoing announcer feud that has taken place since Anthem and Jeff Jarrett took over the company formerly known as TNA.

Below are photos that went around on Twitter of Steiner’s return. This includes the screen with his logo on there and him walking down the ramp to the ring:

To go one step further, Impact Wrestling recongized this happening on its Twitter account. It’s not something they normally do for tapings, but did so with this, potentially trying to highlight it as a big deal. WWE does this with NXT tapings, only if and when a new face debuts or someone notable returns.

Steiner is 54-years-old, so we’ll see how much a match he’ll have at Slammiversary, especially with it involving Mathews and Borash. His last in-ring showing, via Pro Fight DB, was at an OMEGA show in February 2016.

Big Poppa Pump last competed in TNA in 2011. This saw him team with Abyss in a loss to AJ Styles and Kazarian, before being released just months later.

Scott Steiner being back in Impact Wrestling may draw a few extra eyes toward the TV show. That will even go for Slammiversary, too, once this match is confirmed. Are you looking forward to this?
