WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley says “anything could happen” when Scott Steiner is given a live microphone at the Steiner Brothers’ upcoming WWE Hall of Fame induction.
Earlier this week, it was announced that Rick and Scott Steiner were set to be the latest inductees into the WWE Hall of Fame as part of the Class of 2022, joining the likes of Vader, Queen Sharmell, and The Undertaker.
Taking to social media, fellow WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley shared his thoughts on the legendary tag team receiving this honor, particularly when it comes to giving Scott Steiner a live microphone in front of a crowd.
“I want you to think for a second about Scott Steiner live on an award show. Do you think the wrestling community wants to be upstaged by Will Smith’s slap heard around the world? Just saying….live microphone; anything could happen. Scottie has been known to get a little freaky from time to time. I don’t think it’ll happen, I hope it [the induction] is done in a graceful way, but you never know.
“Scottie had that great singles run [in WCW and TNA], and was seemingly unhinged. You never know what was going to happen when he was on TV. That’s why I believe, we owe it to ourselves to tune in this Friday.”

Scott Steiner has been known to be outspoken about WWE in recent years, launching verbal tirades against the likes of Triple H and repeatedly saying that he’d refuse a Hall Of Fame induction if offered but has apparently he’s now relented.
Earlier in the video, Mick Foley praised the Steiner Brothers’ accomplishments and called them a team ahead of their time.
“I think it [the WWE HOF induction] is a great reminder of how amazing The Steiners were. At a certain point, they were the best tag team in wrestling. Their ingenuity, power, and grace – Scott Steiner actually did the Frankensteiner, which we all call the Hurricanrana now. Scottie more or less popularized that move in American wrestling. A guy of that size doing that move, especially because Scottie would do it when an opponent came running off the ropes – it was one of the greatest moves of our generation.
“Rick was my print guy when my wife & I had a short-lived leather jacket business in Atlanta. I got to know him well. Really happy for both Rick and Scott.”
The WWE Hall of Fame induction ceremony is set to immediately follow WrestleMania SmackDown on Friday, April 1st in Dallas, TX.
