Scott Steiner Is Under Investigation For Allegedly Threatening To Kill Hulk Hogan

We told you last week about an “ugly incident” between Scott Steiner and Hulk Hogan’s wife Jennifer that led to Big Poppa Pump being banned from WWE’s Hall of Fame ceremony. Details of the incident are starting to emerge, and according to TMZ Sports, they’re a worst-case scenario: Steiner is now being investigated for felony terrorist threats (!!) for physically confronting her and allegedly threatening to kill the Hulkster.

 

From this morning’s report:

 

"Here’s what we know … Hulk’s wife Jennifer flew into San Jose for WrestleMania on March 26th — and claims Steiner grabbed her at baggage claim and said he plans to “kill Terry” [Hulk’s real name] as soon as he lands.

 

Sources close to the Hogans tell us … Jennifer didn’t recognize Steiner and called Hulk immediately — who took the next flight into S.J. and went with her to file a police report early the next morning.

 

We’re told cops are now investigating Steiner for “felony terrorist threats” — and so far, officials have already gathered airport surveillance video which we’re told shows Steiner confronting Jennifer.

 

As for Steiner, he’s been very public about his dislike of Hogan for years — and blames him for the demise of WCW wrestling … where Scott and Hulk were allies in the NWO."

 

You may read that and think, “Scott Steiner is an insane old wrestler and was just cutting a promo and can’t tell the difference between fantasy and real life.” If the allegations are true, Steiner’s comment on the investigation confirm this:

 

We reached out to Steiner for comment — who told us, “Typical Hogan. He’s just a punk.”

 

Word to all wrestlers: You can’t say the stuff you’d say about other wrestlers on a wrestling show to people in real life, even if they’re your former co-workers. It just doesn’t translate. It’s like

. You can threaten peoples’ lives on television and get away with it because it’s all part of the show. If you’re cutting promos on one terrified lady in an airport? Totally different.

 

We’ll keep you updated on the investigation as it unfolds.

More from Uproxx

 

"Scott Steiner has addressed the current investigation into alleged incidents concerning Hulk Hogan and his wife in the most eloquent, professional way a person who could be charged with felony terrorist threats possible could, by saying Hulk Hogan is “acting like a scared little bitch.”

 

TMZ was able to reach Steiner after breaking that he would be under investigation for what were previously just rumors:

 

“I’m not going to dignify [Hogan’s] lies,” Steiner said … “I didn’t put my hands on her.”

 

Steiner says he did approach Jennifer that day — but only to talk some serious smack about Hulk introducing “Macho Man” Randy Savage at his WWE Hall of Fame ceremony.

 

“I told her Hulk introducing ‘Macho Man’ into the Hall of Fame is bullsh*t … He hated him. Everyone knew that.”

 

Steiner says there were cops nearby during the airport incident — “So if she felt her life was threatened, why didn’t she talk to the cops?” – TMZ

 

Ah, victim-blaming. The shining beacon of truth for every person accused of a crime. Though it’s reported that the matter is being looked into by the police, and serious charges could be filed, Steiner says he has yet to be contacted in regards to any kind of investigation.

 

“It’s not my fault Hulk Hogan is afraid of me.” … It might be a little, yes. Just a little.

Considering what he has said about HHH over the years I would say Hell would freeze over or even Benoit inducted before Steiner is also does he deserve to go into the HOF what eactly has he achieved I did not really like Steiner apart from his music.

Yeah, the Steiners as a team are HOF-worthy, without a doubt. They are up there with Demolition, Hart Foundation, LOD, Rock n Roll, Midnight Express etc as some of the greatest teams ever. On his own, he's not even close. They'll probably wait for him to die and then induct the Steiners and just have Rick make a speech. At least you'd be able to understand what he is saying.

 

"I'll make him an egg....and go Britishing"
