Scott Steiner famously cut the Steiner Math promo in 2008 when discussing his upcoming three-way bout at Sacrifice.
Since then, "Steiner Math" became a meme that is still referenced today, including on a recent episode of NXT with Tommaso Ciampa bringing it up during his feud with Bron Breakker, who is Scott's nephew.
Speaking to Alistair McGeorge of Metro, Petey Williams discussed Steiner using "Steiner Math" to his advantage.
"He gets it. He’ll never let on that he gets it. We did a show in 2019 in California. It was myself, Jordynne Grace and Steiner, we were doing the Steiner gimmick. When he went out – obviously, we wrote this script. 'Scott, you’re gonna cut a promo,' and he’s like, 'Alright. Can I swear?' And I’m like… 'Try to be as much like Scott Steiner as you can. That’s all I’m gonna say – we’ll leave it up to you!' So he’s got a good time for his promo, five minutes or something. He knows. He started doing math right away. First, he said 'all my freaks” and all that, and then he said, 'there’s three of us' and the math! 'That makes it 141 2/3% chance of winning.' As soon as he hit that line, everyone went nuts! Steiner gets it! He knows that that’s his gimmick," said Petey.
During his WCW peak, Steiner was known as a no-nonsense character who could bully others with his superior size and strength.
"He’ll never let onto it because he’s Freakzilla, Big Poppa Pump, you’re supposed to be afraid of him – he’s never been a comedy guy," said Petey. "But he’s transitioned into this comedy guy, we laugh at the math now! He gets it, he knows how to monetize it, and he’s doing a great job with it. I still go on the IMPACT Plus app right now and I watch the Steiner stuff… You can find all the Steiner stuff on there. Absolutely, Steiner and I get along great!"
Steiner has teamed with Petey and Grace in trios action for various promotions.
Williams currently serves as a producer for WWE.
