History: Unfortunately, I have not found out anything about how Rick Steiner's career began, other than he began wrestling in 1983. The first reference I've found for Rick is when he replaced Eddie Gilbert to team with Sting. The two later won the UWF Tag-Team belts for a time. Steiner was next in the NWA (soon-to-be WCW) in 1988, when he won the NWA World Television Title from Mike Rotunda (Mr. Wallstreet). He later lost the title to Rotunda. Sometime around here, Steiner joined with Rotunda, Kevin Sullivan, and others in the Varsity Club, a stable that wore letter jackets and acted like a high school team, doing push-ups in the ring. Later on, Steiner began to team up with his brother Scott as the Steiner Brothers (makes sense, eh?). The two first won the WCW Tag Team titles by beating the Fabulous Freebirds in November 1989. They held the titles for more than 6 months before losing to the team of Doom. After this, the Steiner Brothers began wrestling simultaneously in both WCW and the IWGP in Japan, as well as brief appearances in smaller organizations like the PWA. In February '91, the Steiners won the WCW Tag-Team belts, again beating the Freebirds. In March, the two also captured the IWGP Tag-Team belts, unifying the two for a brief time. Unfortunately, in August '91 Scott was injured, and the WCW belts were vacated.

In the IWGP, Rick replaced his brother with Scott Norton, and the two held the belts another 4 months, while Scott Steiner recuperated. They lost the belts at the end of '91. When Rick's brother came back, the two returned to the same place they had been. First, in May '92, the two won the WCW Tag-Team belts for a third time, taking out Arn Anderson and Bobby Eaton. Then, in June, the Steiner Brothers won the IWGP belts by beating Big Van Vader and Bam Bam Bigelow, once again unifying the tag-team titles. This did not last long, however, as they lost the WCW belts to Terry Gordy and Steve Williams in August '92. Rick then left WCW, to compete mainly in Japan with his brother. The two lost the IWGP titles to Norton and Tony Halme in November '92. The two brothers then moved on to the WWF.

After gaining their fame in the WWF, the Steiners pulled down some more gold by defeating Money, Inc., on June 14th, 1993. Two days later, Money Inc. reclaimed their gold. Three days after that, the Steiner Brothers again defeated Money Inc. for their second title reign in the WWF. This one lasted somewhat longer; about 3 months later, the Quebecers won the titles. Not long after that, after wrestling overseas for a while, Rick went with Scott back to WCW.

In July '96, the Steiners showed they could still win, defeating Harlem Heat for their 4th title reign as WCW Tag-Team Champs. Although Harlem Heat reclaimed the titles a few days later, Rick and Scott proved they deserved to be in WCW. Soon after, the Steiners became one of the main fighters against the nWo. Although the brothers did defeat the Outsiders at the beginning of 1997, Eric Bischoff (an nWo plant at the time) made them return the belts. This actually helped strengthen the Steiners for a time, as they took on Ted DiBiase, an ex-nWo member, as their manager. The two brothers then won the titles from a Wolfpack-style Outsiders team in October, and held them until January '98, when the Outsiders won them back. In early February, Rick and Scott defeated the Outsiders for the last time, winning the WCW Tag-Team titles for the 6th official time. A few weeks later, Scott betrayed Rick and joined the nWo, throwing away the Tag-Team belts to the Outsiders.

Rick continued the feud with the nWo, who he blamed for his brother's turning 'heel'. Rick began a long-term feud with his brother, meeting him many times over the next few PPVs. After sitting out some of '98 with an arm injury, Rick returned, and at Halloween Havoc '98, despite "Buff" Bagwell betraying him, Rick still won the WCW Tag-Team Belts, for the 7th time, from Scott Steiner and the Giant. Rick then chose Kenny Khaos as his partner (although Judy Bagwell also held the belt for a time). However, the belts were vacated when Rick again became injured.

In late March '99, Rick Steiner reappeared in WCW, once again attacking his brother Scott. He then began wrestling as a singles wrestler, and became involved in a small feud with Booker T and his brother, Stevie Ray. This led to a TV Title match at Slamboree '99 against Booker T. During the match, Scott Steiner ran out and shockingly aided his brother, enabling Rick to win his first singles gold of the '90s. Rick returned the favor in Scott's match later that night, helping him retain the US Title over Buff Bagwell. The two then, with Bret Hart, attacked Sting and Goldberg, breaking up their match. The Steiner Brothers seemed to be back together, with Rick joining his brother as a heel.

Rick and Scott started terrorizing the wrestling profession, showing up during the other's match and helping both wrestlers retain their titles. In June '99, Rick was scheduled during a Monday Nitro to face Sting in a cage for the TV Title. Through circumstances, Tank Abbott, a UFC fighter, came to WCW and became the ref of the match. When it seemed Sting was winning, Abbott surprisingly aided Rick, and left him attacking Sting. Rick then met Sting at the Great American Bash, where Abbott, Scott Steiner, and some doberman pinchers became involved. The match was a No Contest. With Scott Steiner out with injuries, Rick faded into the background slightly, even though he still defended the TV Title. In a meaningless feud, he beat Van Hammer at the Bash at the Beach '99. A new direction was on the way for the Dog-Faced Gremlin.

In late July '99, Rick Steiner came out with Kevin Nash and Sid Vicious, forming a union with them against Hulk Hogan, Sting, and Bill Goldberg. This catapulted Steiner into the top feud in WCW at the time. He continuously came out with Sid, helping him to attack other wrestlers. However, at Road Wild '99, he faced Bill Goldberg, who easily ran down the DFG. Since it was not a title match, though, Rick retained the TV belt. In the next month, Steiner continuously had run-ins with the Revolution, since Chris Benoit was facing Vicious at Fall Brawl. Because of this, Steiner agreed to face Perry Saturn for the TV Title at the PPV. After avoiding the Death Valley Driver, Steiner hit his Bulldog to retain the belt.

At the next Nitro, Chris Benoit came out for his title shot, since he defeated Dean Malenko to earn it the week before. Instead of a World Title shot, though, Rick Steiner came out, saying that Sting did not want to give Benoit anything. Instead, Steiner offered a Television Title match, which Benoit accepted. This proved to be a mistake for Steiner, as Benoit got the victory and walked away with Steiner's TV belt. Steiner and Benoit feuded for the next month over the gold, heading into Halloween Havoc '99. During the match-up for the TV Title, the ref was accidentally taken down. This brought out the weapons, as both Steiner & Benoit tried to use a chair on the other. In the end, Dean Malenko came out and surprisingly turned on Benoit, knocking him out with the chair, so that Rick could get the easy cover, regaining the belt.

In November, Rick competed in the World Title Tournament. However, he was quickly taken out in the first round by "The Total Package" Lex Luger. Steiner then entered into a brief feud with the United States Heavyweight Champion, Scott Hall. They were scheduled to meet at WCW Mayhem for both belts. But Steiner, injured, was unable to make the event, and Hall then claimed the TV Title as his own, winning via forfeit. Steiner vanished from television for the next month, even as Hall threw the TV Title in the trash later, retiring it ("Hacksaw" Jim Duggan later brought it back for a few months, with little to show for it).

In December '99, "Hacksaw" was feuding with the Revolution (Shane Douglas, Perry Saturn, Dean Malenko, & Asya), who had turned their backs on America. A match was set up between Duggan & the Revolution members, where if Duggan lost, he'd have to turn on America, while if the Revolution lost, they would take over his janitorial services. At the PPV, WCW Starrcade '99, the Revolution came out as a team, ready to win a "handicap" match. But Duggan had his own surprise, bringing out Steiner, Mike Rotunda, & Kevin Sullivan with him, as the reformed Varsity Club, who quickly cleared the ring of the Revolution members. However, the Varsity Club then turned on Duggan, taking him down and leaving, which allowed Shane Douglas to get the easy pinfall victory. The Varsity Club became a heel group for the next month, taking on various other tag-teams in WCW, as Steiner & Rotunda became the main members (with Sullivan as their manager). He also competed in the WCW World Tag-Team Title Tournament, being paired up with Berlyn. This partnership didn't work, as the duo lost in the first round to PG-13. The Varsity Club later broke up and dispersed again, leaving Steiner on his own.

In April '00, Eric Bischoff & Vince Russo returned to WCW, bringing together the younger talent (The New Blood) to face off against what they called the Millionaire's Club, the more experienced wrestlers. Rick later returned, to feud with his brother, Scott, once more. This time, though, Rick had an ally in Tank Abbott, a newcomer to WCW who mainly just brawled with wrestlers. The alliance came to be during a match between Rick & Sting, with Tank as the special guest referee. Tank ko'ed Sting to help Rick win, and the two became a team, attacking Scott whenever possible. This led to Rick being added to the already-signed match between Tank & Scott at the Great American Bash '00. Vince Russo, who was feuding with Scott at the time, inserted Rick to make it a Handicap Asylum match (inside a round cage). The two worked over Scott, double-teaming him. However, near the end, Tank accidentally hit Rick, knocking him down. Scott then got the Steiner Recliner and walked out victorious. Rick & Tank feuded for the next couple of weeks, with little to show for it, as Rick slowly dropped out of the public's view. For the rest of 2000, Steiner wrestled intermittently, rarely getting a major title shot.

In 2001, Rick signed up with his brother Scott, WCW CEO Ric Flair, Lex Luger, Buff Bagwell, Road Warrior Animal, and Jeff Jarrett, creating the Magnificent Seven. Their power-hungry ideals allowed their group to basically control WCW. In February '01, Steiner defeated Shane Douglas at a regular tv show to win the United States Heavyweight Title for the first time. Douglas later appeared wearing a cast, due to injuries sustained in the match (actually the reason he dropped the title). Rick next entered a feud with Dustin Rhodes, who had turned on the Magnificent Seven after Ric Flair tried to sign him onto their side. They wrestled at Superbrawl: Revenge for the US belt, with Dustin giving Rick almost all he could handle. Rick managed to take the turnbuckle pad off of one of the corners, though, and hammered Rhodes into it, enabling him to get the easy pin and the victory.

Rick then began feuding with Booker T, who had recently returned to action after months of recuperation due to Rick's brother, Scott. Booker T, seeking revenge, first had to get past Rick. After numerous brawls (where Booker T seemed to be stronger), the two wrestlers faced off at WCW Greed. The battle went back and forth, eventually knocking down the referee. Rick then climbed the turnbuckle to go for his Bulldog, but was hit in the back of the head by Shane Douglas and his cast. Steiner, stunned, was then hit by the Bookend and lost the match and the US Title. Rick & Douglas then feuded for the next few weeks, and were scheduled to face at the Season Finale of WCW, but due to time constraints, never did.
