Former WCW World Champion Scott Steiner was the featured guest on the last edition of Monday Night Mayhem. "Big Poppa Pump" joined The Big Mosh & Todd Vincent to promote his CWI Title Match vs. Kevin Nash at "Brawl at the Bush II" on Saturday night, May 14th in Brantford, Ontario, Canada. Here are some interview highlights courtesy of Paterson, MNM's associate producer & official correspondent:
His feelings on returning to TNA after an eleven-month absence: "Part of the reason was I don't know why I left. That was not my decision, and obviously they brought me back to bring the ratings back. Now I'm here, and we can go out there and prove that I'm still the best."
Why he believes Matt Morgan's collegiate & basketball backgrounds will not help him when "Big Poppa Pump" & "The Blueprint" square off soon: "I tired to look up his (Matt's) profile on the computer and saw Monmouth College somewhere in the cesspools of New Jersey. I never heard of that. And supposedly Chaminade, where they somehow made it to the NCAA Tournament, where he played a couple of minutes. Fans are going to be deeply disappointed when it comes down to athletic ability, because he says he's trying to follow in my footsteps. You can't follow in my footsteps. So he plays with little balls and puts them in the holes. That's not going to help his ass when he gets in the ring."
What fans can expect at CWI's "Brawl at the Bush II" event in Brantford, Ontario, Canada (headlined by his CWI Title defense vs. Kevin Nash & a special appearance by Hulk Hogan): "It's going to be a great event. There's going to be a lot of stars there. Of course I have to go against Kevin Nash, which will be a hard-fought match. Hulk Hogan's going to be there, so anybody who's a wrestling fan should enjoy the show."
More is contained in Steiner's interview including his candid thoughts & comments on just how close The Steiner Brothers were to being inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame this year, how much he cares about achieving that personal accolade, Booker T & Kevin Nash's departing TNA and returning to the WWE at The Royal Rumble and much more!
