File this one under “only in professional wrestling” and “TMZ-ready”: Scott Steiner reportedly threatened to kill Hulk Hogan during WrestleMania weekend.
That’s right: Big Poppa Pump wants to murder Mr. Take Your Vitamins and Say Your Prayers.
According to the news brief, Steiner ran into Hulk’s wife Jennifer at the airport in San Jose, and told her he was going to “kill Terry” as soon as he lands. Apparently Jennifer didn’t recognize Steiner (because, c’mon, the attitude era was almost 20 years ago) and so she called to tell Hulk immediately. They filed a police report early the next day.
Cops have turned this into an investigation for “felony terrorist threats,” and air port security footage corroborates Jennifer Hogan’s story.
But, before you make up your mind on this story, I’d encourage you to revisit an episode of WWE RAW where Steiner challenged a man to a bench press contest, and then beat Triple H into his underwear:
Do those seem like the actions of a sane man?
When TMZ pressed Steiner for a comment, he responded bluntly: “Typical Hogan. He’s just a punk.”
Well said, Mr. Steiner.
