Freakzilla isn’t happy? To say that Scott Steiner can go a little off the hinges at times would be an understatement. Steiner is known for his firey temper and to go a little nuts at times, especially when he’s ranting and raving at someone. He is constantly angry at WWE, who have employed him twice over the years. That’s the case again, and it’s another one that will get people talking.
Steiner was recently interviewed by Whatculture.com and went on a rant about Stephanie McMahon and WWE in general. He goes on about the backstage nature of the company, with most of his rage being directed at McMahon and Triple H, saying that the things you have to put up with almost made him quit during his two times with the company. Here are some excerpts, with transcription courtesy of Ringsidenews.com:
On The Current WWE Product
“It just goes to show you that nobody wants to watch that bullsh*t WWE puts out right now. That product is f*cking horrible.”
On His Time With WWE
“The 2 times I was up there I thought about quitting. Yeah, f*cking weirdos man. The bullshit you have to deal with now — now it’s worse because you’ve got one of the biggest c*nts running it, you know?”
And On Triple H And McMahon
“Stephanie McMahon, what the f*ck does she know about wrestling? Just because… and then Triple H… f*ck… are you f*cking kidding me? I feel bad for the wrestlers, you know? Because they pigeonholed them in these stupid characters and make everybody do the same interviews that they print out. You can’t expand or be creative. It’s not what my picture of wrestling is. People say they sell it like this it’s the squared circle, they proved it — it’s bullsh*t.”

Opinion: I think it would be more surprising if Steiner didn’t yell about WWE when someone put a camera on him. This is far from the first time this has happened and while it’s well known that Steiner isn’t the only former WWE star to feel this way, he’s certainly one of the most vocal about his feelings. It’s definitely a way to get some attention, though with Steiner it’s hard to believe he doesn’t mean every word.
