We reported earlier today here on eWn that Scott Steiner appeared at NEW ERA Wrestling’s event over the weekend. Steiner came out and cut a promo, referencing “Steiner Math” when talking about his medical emergency in early March. Steiner said,
“Well, it’s obvious that everybody heard what happened last week. A lot of people came to me, [saying they were] praying for me, gave me their best wishes. And I appreciate that. But I’ll tell you what, it happened on Friday night, I actually do not remember walking to the ring, talking, walking back to the ring, collapsing. I don’t remember Friday night, I don’t remember Saturday night … But as I entered the hospital, I’m freaking the nurses out because you know, I don’t remember nothing. I’m a wild man. I’m asking, ‘Why am I here? I gotta get out of here.’ At that point, my wife walks in, she says, ‘Oh don’t worry about. I’ll go talk to them. This is me.
But as I was sitting on the hospital bed, the doctor came up to me. He said, ‘The procedure that happened to you, normally you only had an 8% chance of winning, of getting off the bed, of living.’ I said, ‘Doc, every time I step in the ring, I have a 141 2/3% chance of winning. What do you think my chances are of jumping out of this business?’
Oh yeah, I almost forgot. Doctor says I gotta take a couple weeks off. So I’ve known this guy for over 30 years, and he still looks the same to me. Everybody welcome Mike Jackson!”
