History: "Dr. Death" Steve Williams was one of those unique individuals in the sport of professional wrestling. It's rare for an American wrestler to have the talent and skill necessary to become a major superstar in another part of the world. In many ways, Steve Williams' career was much more successful overseas than it had been on the U.S. shores.

Williams first become noteworthy on the sports scene when he competed in football and amateur wrestling for Lakeside High School in Colorado. He was so impressive that he was soon given an athletic scholarship to the University of Oklahoma, joining the football team as an offensive lineman. He became well-known for his ability to smash down the defensive line in front of him, gaining the nickname of "Dr. Death" that followed him throughout the rest of his career. Throughout four years of college, Williams anchored the Oklahoma offensive line, protecting his quarterback with ruthless agression. He was named an All-American in 1982. Williams was also building a solid reputation as a mat wrestler, earning All-American honors there as well. When he graduated in 1982, Williams was approached by the owner of the Mid-South Wrestling organization. Williams began testing the waters of professional wrestling, but was also still interested in his first sport. as he soon signed with the USFL, joining the New Jersey Generals. However, Williams was unable to control his temper during his stay with the league, being cited on multiple occasions for playing too rough. He was cut from the team in 1983. By then, though, Williams was already considering other options.

Williams became a regular for the Mid-South, which eventually changed its name to the Universal Wrestling Federation. For six years, Williams worked hard for the federation, earning respect in the business that he had devoted his life to. In 1985, Williams formed a powerhouse tag-team with another star, Ted DiBiase. The two would hold the Mid-South/UWF Tag-Team Titles twice, with two three-month reigns. Williams would later go on to hold the UWF World Heavyweight Title, retaining it during the later months of '87. Williams became a major contributer behind the scenes of the UWF, helping it do well until it was absorbed by the National Wrestling Alliance at the end of the year. It was also during this time that Williams started to feel out the waters overseas, as he wrestled occassionally with New Japan Pro Wrestling. For now, though, Williams was interested in becoming a star in the U.S.A.

Williams brought the UWF Heavyweight Title into the NWA briefly, defending it on a few shows against NWA stars like Barry Windham before dropping it. He would slowly start to make an impact, as he joined Ted Turner's growing branch of wrestling (which would eventually become known as World Championship Wrestling). Williams' major claim to fame during this time was joining up with Kevin Sullivan and Mike Rotunda as the Varsity Club. The group would hold the NWA United States Tag-Team Titles, then moved on to the NWA World Tag straps, becoming an impressive stable in 1988-89. They would eventually break up, and Williams became a wandering superstar going into 1990, not quite finding the fame he was searching for. He once again started to try some matches overseas, again going into New Japan Pro Wrestling. He also tried other options, though, wrestling also with All Japan Pro Wrestling, as well as a stint with the failed return of the UWF.

It was in AJPW that Williams would find himself another tag-team partner in the form of Terry Gordy. The two formed one of the most dominant tag-teams of the early '90s, winning the AJPW World Tag-Team Titles five times from 1990-1993. They also brought their amazing team back to the states, where at one point the team united the WCW and NWA World Tag-Team Titles, keeping both belt for over two months. But after their reign with the belts, Williams and Gordy headed back to Japan, where Williams would stay as a major competitor for the next few years. In 1994, Williams decided to prove that he could be a strong singles competitor as well. He won the UWF World Heavyweight Title (for the second time), and also gained control of one of the most prized possessions in the sport, becoming the AJPW Triple Crown Champion by beating Mitsu Misawa. For three months, Williams reigned over AJPW, before finally losing the Crown to Toshiaki Kawada in October '94. In 1995, Williams returned to tag-team action, joining up with Johnny Ace. But aches and injuries had built up, and Williams would disappear from action until 1996.

"Dr. Death" would make a big-time return to AJPW in '96, nearly winning the Champion Carnival, one of the largest events of the year. He reteamed with Johnny Ace, and the two would win the AJPW World Tag-Team Titles by beating a tough team in Mitsu Misawa & Jun Akiyama. They would hold the belts for four months before finally dropping them. It was also during this time that Williams returned briefly to America, wrestling a few matches for the growing organization, Extreme Championship Wrestling. But AJPW stayed the home of Dr. Death. In 1997, Williams and Ace broke apart and began feuding, with each finding a new partner to go after the tag titles. Williams found Gary Albright, and the two would take the AJPW World Tag Titles from Ace & Kenta Kobashi in July '97. The team only held the belts for a few months, but it was another reign placed on the long resume of Williams.

In 1998, Williams finally began to reappear back in the United States. During the spring, Williams, with the help of his friend Jim Ross, entered into negotiations with the World Wrestling Federation. He signed on the dotted line, and was brought in as a major favorite of the Brawl For It All Tournament, an event basically put together to make Williams a star. Unfortunately, it didn't work out, as Williams became injured. He won his first match over Pierre Oulette, but then was upset by Bart Gunn, who was made out to injure Dr. Death, putting him on the shelf for a few months. Williams would return later on, seeking revenge on Gunn by attacking him while wearing a mask. With Jim Ross turning heel and becoming Williams' manager, Dr. Death seemed to be on his way up the ladder. But it was not meant to be, as "bad publicity" would lead to Williams' release from the WWF in late '98.

Williams returned to All Japan wrestling for a while in '99, but he was still set on trying to gain ground in the US, reportedly because his son was growing up in America, and Williams wanted him to see his dad in action. Williams signed on with World Championship Wrestling again, coming in in 1999 as a very similar wrestler to how he was in the WWF, complete with a Jim Ross-lookalike, Oklahoma (Ed Ferrera). With his strange manager making fun of Ross at every opportunity, from wearing a cowboy hat to pushing his barbeque sauce, Williams had feud with various wrestlers, including a Starrcade match with Vampiro, with the stipulation that, if Vampiro won, he'd get a match with Oklahoma. Williams lost the match via DQ, then had to go to the back and watch as Oklahoma lost as well. Not long afterwards, Williams was gone from WCW, as he opted to head back to AJPW once more.

It didn't take Williams long to again become a force in the AJPW Tag-Team Division, as he would win the World Tag-Team Titles for an eighth time, with his fourth partner, Big Van Vader. They would only hold the titles for a few months, though, before injuries to Vader forced them to vacate. In 2001, Williams rejoined with his old Varsity Club partner, Mike Rotunda, with the two teaming up to wreck havoc on the company. They were unable, however, to earn the AJPW World Tag-Team Titles, the belt that Williams had held so many times before.

In 2004, Williams' most famous battle began, as he was diagnosed with throat cancer. Williams refused to go down quietly, battling the disease, and was remarkably declared cancer-free in 2005. Even more remarkably, he returned to wrestling, eventually signing on with WWE's development organization, Ohio Valley Wrestling. Williams worked as a trainer there, while also appearing occassionally on the show, including teaming up with Jake Hager (who later became Jack Swagger). Williams would later leave OVW, continuing to wrestle into 2009, where he decided to retire after a 27 year career. Williams made one final victory, winning the Asylum Championship Wrestling Heavyweight Title from Franco D'Angelo in August. Williams vacated the belt right after the match.

Sadly, Williams' throat cancer returned during the year, and this time, there was no stopping it. Williams was admitted to St. Anthony Central Hospital in Denver, Colorado, in December '09, and, just before the end of the year, passed away due to the throat cancer. He was 49 years old.
