Scott Steiner Blasts WWE’s ‘PG’ Product, Competition

Credit: The Miami Herald

Scott Steiner recently spoke about the current WWE product, social media and more. Here are the highlights…

On WWE’s PG Product: “The ‘PG era’ blows,” he said. “The best time in wrestling was with the nWo and the Monday Night War between WCW and WWE. You had competition. Now there is no competition. I feel bad for the guys and the wrestlers coming up now. They are slotted into a character that sometimes they can’t even do. Most of the time it’s bull****, and it sucks. I wouldn’t want to do it. You have a stupid character to do, but if you don’t do it, you don’t have a job.”

If Competition is Needed: “You need competition for a business to truly thrive. Look at Vince [McMahon’s] numbers since he bought WCW. Then again he just lost like $400 million, projected to lose $50 million this year. So you couldn’t predict that after he bought WCW and doing 5’s and 6’s on the ratings scale.”

On Social Media Being Used So Much: “All the social media and other things, a lot of it is bull****. It doesn’t mean you’re going to draw or people are going to see you. You look at Charlie Sheen and then how many Twitter followers he had there and on Facebook. Then he tried to capitalize on it with a tour, and nobody came to watch him. Just because you have Twitter followers and Facebook doesn’t mean a whole lot and [doesn’t mean] people are going to pay to see you. A lot of that is misjudged. Just because you have people on their phone or Internet doesn’t mean they are going to pay. Same for the Network. I think they misjudged the popularity of it.”

      I just got paid $7500 working off my computer this month. And if you think that’s cool, my friend has twin toddlers and made over $8k her first month. It feels so good making so much money when other people have to work for so much less. This is what I do—,

      Maybe a little.

      He acts like stupid characters didn’t exist before the PG era. /eyeroll.

      • BeastieRunner says:

        He should really watch his library of stuff on the Network before he calls characters, “stupid.”

      • Block Resnar says:

        At one point he was involved in an angle on Nitro in which Chucky the doll was threatening Rick Steiner if he didn’t stay away from Scott. So yeah, he’s got some gall to bash PG WWE for having ridiculous stuff.

    • some guy says:

      Well we all know that he doesn’t like HHH so I wouldn’t be surprised that he is bashing the WWE of today.

  2. Marvin Gamez says:

    I wonder how many times he botched what he was trying to say

    • o.O says:

      LOL I was going to say the same thing. “When you look up into the sky.. and see the big dipper… I’M the big dipper! I’m the big bad booty daday!” Errrr… What!? I want him to be on TV again. His promos were comedy gold. Half way through trying to decipher wth he just said and THEN trying to navigate THAT craziness to what he MEANT to say made me black out and forget my name when I woke up.

    ALWAYS THOUGHT THAT NWO WAS STUPID ANYWAY.!!! stiener was just another hopped up steroid using wrestler. only he wore a shower curtain for a hat to the ring.And that little 1-2-3 kid stiffened his legs then rubbed his crotch up aganist another mans face. we called it the queer call move. id rather watch wwe now then when he was on it. the rest were fun to watch cept him.

  5. Joe says:

    Does this guy have anything positive to say? And I don’t just mean WWE-wise. Every time he appears in the news it’s all bad press.
