At the annual WWE Hall of Fame induction ceremony the night before WrestleMania, the WWE’s best and brightest show up from the present and past to honor the latest inductees into the WWE Hall of Fame. Normally, stars that haven’t even competed in the WWE for several years make the trip. Of all the names in WWE’s past, Scott Steiner was not one of them.
In an earlier report by the Inquisitr, Steiner was banned from the WWE Hall of Fame ceremony. Apparently, there was an incident with Hulk Hogan’s wife that caused Steiner to be declared a persona non grata at the WWE’s grandest event. Pictures surfaced of Steiner’s face at one of the tables in San Jose, where the WWE Hall of Fame ceremony is held.

That was only the beginning of the saga between Scott Steiner and WWE. In new developments, Steiner did something unimaginable that involved Hulk Hogan’s wife and the Hulkster himself. According to TMZ.com, Scott Steiner allegedly sent death threats to Hulk Hogan at WrestleMania weekend.
“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.?
On March 26, when Jennifer got to the airport, Steiner allegedly grabbed her at baggage claim and said he plans to, “kill Terry.” TMZ reached out to Steiner for a comment and his words were, “Typical Hogan. He’s just a punk.” Steiner has continued to be very public about his distaste for Hulk Hogan in the past.
The former-WCW wrestler blames Hogan for the destruction of WCW, even though they were allies in the New World Order. Inside a story by Cageside Seats, roots of an issue between the two men were reportedly from the demise of TNA. It’s no secret that old-TNA fans didn’t enjoy Hulk Hogan’s time with the company. Some say that Impact Wrestling is still recovering from his tenure there.
This story is far from over as it doesn’t look like Scott Steiner is letting his beef slide with the WWE Hall of Famer. Hulk Hogan is a smart man, which will be necessary after Steiner’s alleged first round of death threats. Expect Steiner to be banned from all WWE-related events in the near future, as well as heavy security around Hogan and his wife, Jennifer, if the reports turn out to be accurate.
