Michigan’s Own Steiner Brothers Are Now In The WWE Hall Of Fame
The Steiner Brothers from Bay City, Michigan joined the 23rd induction class to the Hall of Fame that included The Undertaker, Vader, and Queen Sharmell inducted in the WWE Hall of Fame this past Saturday, April 2nd.
Earlier this year, on March 29th, former WWE Superstar Mick Foley shared a message on Facebook about the Steiner Brothers going into the WWE Hall of Fame.
I am really looking forward to seeing The Steiner Brothers inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame this Friday. It makes me very happy to see them enter into the Hall, it's about time! When I think of The Steiner Brothers as wrestlers and as a tag team, three words come to mind---ingenuity, power, and grace. Rick and Scott Steiner were both amazing wrestlers and in my opinion, were for a long time the best tag team in the world.
The Steiner Brothers grew up in Bay City and both wrestled in high school. Scott Steiner would go on to win a state title. After high school, both brothers attended the University of Michigan where they were on the wrestling team.
The Steiner brothers represented U of M sometimes when they would enter the ring.
