The Steiner Brothers, Michigan wrestling alums, to enter WWE Hall of Fame

Fittingly, they’ll be enshrined together.

Scott and Rick Steiner, the Bay City natives and Michigan alums who went on to form one of the most popular tag teams of 1990s wrestling, are set to be inducted this week into the World Wrestling Entertainment Hall of Fame as part of the Class of 2022.

The induction ceremony is Friday at American Airlines Center in Dallas, as the pre-party for WrestleMania 38, which will take place Saturday and Sunday.

Also being inducted are The Undertaker, Vader and Queen Sharmell.

The Steiner Brothers — Robert Rechsteiner, 61, and Scott Rechsteiner, 59 — began their wrestling career in 1988 and began wrestling together in 1989, with World Championship Wrestling. In 1992, they moved to what then was called World Wrestling Federation, with whom their Michigan connection was played up. They wore Michigan varsity jackets, and “The Victors” was played as their entrance music. The Steiners, Scott with his long, flowing mullet, and Rick, with a tighter crop, goatee and amateur-style head gear, appeared on the first episode of “Monday Night Raw” in 1993, and eventually won the circuit’s tag team championship.
