Sound the alarms and take cover as one of the most controversial wrestlers has made his in-ring return at Impact last night. Former WCW champion Big Poppa Pump Scott Steiner showed up at the television tapings and will also be at the Slammiversary pay-per-view.
Steiner has not worked for Impact since 2012, which was his second stint with the company. Steiner originally joined TNA in 2006 and stayed there for four years before leaving and returning again in 2011 where his second go in the company only lasted a year.
Steiner had an ugly departure from TNA in 2012, publicly bashing Hulk Hogan and Eric Bischoff and making some nasty remarks about the two. Attorneys for the company eventually filed a legal complaint against him and Steiner counter-sued saying he was owed money. Steiner also filed a second lawsuit later in the year saying he was injured while wrestling Jeff Hardy who was said to be intoxicated at the time.
Despite being one of the most recognizable names, Steiner only had one title reign in TNA, a run as a Tag Team champion along with Booker T.
