Pro wrestling legend Scott Steiner made a cameo appearance during Tuesday’s Judge Steve Harvey show on ABC.

Steiner appeared as a witness on video to defend independent wrestling promoter Ronnie Gossett, who was on trial for $5,000 in unpaid appearance fees. Gossett was sued by Johnny Fairplay, a former contestant on Survivor and an indie wrestler best known for his time in TNA. According to Fairplay, Gossett refused to pay him for two cancelled indie shows from last year.

“I’m Big Poppa Pump Scott Steiner, and I’ve worked for Ron many times,” Steiner said. “I’ve got Ronnie’s back on this one. I worked on three of his shows, the first one got cancelled, and the second one got rained out. This happens in other sports such as football, baseball and golf; I mean, he can’t control the weather. And for the third show, I was paid in full.”

“Johnny needs to stop being a little b—h,” Steiner added. “If you don’t like it, wrestle me for the money!”

Harvey then commented on Steiner’s testimony.

“I actually know Big Poppa Pump,” Harvey said. “I strongly suggest you [Johnny Fairplay] don’t wrestle him for the money.”

Harvey then ruled in favor of the plaintiff, asking Gossett to award Fairplay $5,000 in unpaid fees.

As noted earlier, WCW legends JJ Dillon and Kevin Sullivan settled their dispute on the Judge Steve Harvey show during last week’s episode.

Scott Steiner and his brother, Rick Steiner, will be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame this Friday. They will be joining Queen Sharmell, Vader, Shad Gaspard (Warrior Award) and The Undertaker in the HOF class of 2022. As noted earlier, WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley has stated that “anything could happen” with Scott Steiner on a live microphone during the induction ceremony.
