A former WCW World Heavyweight Champion made his return at the TNA iMPACT! tapings this week. It was none other than Scott Steiner who returned. Steiner filmed a segment for an episode that will air on January 27, 2011. During the tapings, Steiner made his return during the main event. Kurt Angle was involved in a handicap match against various members of the Immortals. After a beat down, Jeff Jarrett shows up to pin Angle. The lights go out, Steiner shows up in the ring with a crowbar and the Immortals flee the ring.
No word yet on whether or not Steiner is being brought back as a heel or a face. There are some that believe that he will eventually end up in the Immortals alongside Hulk Hogan.
Many didn’t expect to see Steiner back in the company. Many are saying that if he plays a supporting role in the Immortals, that’s fine. However, if he plays a major role, then that might anger those that believe that younger wrestlers should be elevated.
