According to reports from TMZ.com, former WCW, WWE, and TNA superstar Scott Steiner is under investigation for threatening to kill Hulk Hogan during WrestleMania 31 weekend. As previously noted, Steiner was reportedly barred from appearing at any WWE event during the weekend, including the 2015 WWE Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony, and this threat is reportedly the reason why.
“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.
We reached out to Steiner for comment — who told us, ‘Typical Hogan. He’s just a punk.'”
Steiner has had issues with many of his former in-ring co-workers. Much of his time spent outside of WWE and TNA the last few years has been Steiner making outlandish and controversial comments about stars such as Hogan, Eric Bischoff, Ric Flair, and Kevin Nash.
