Scott Steiner is not on good terms with the WWE.
'Big Poppa Pump' hasn't been with the company since 2004 when he was released. The former WCW champ decided not to sign with the WWE after they bought out WCW in 2002 but later made the decision to follow his former colleagues.
After a disappointing run with the company, Steiner was forced to be sidelined due to an injury and was handed his walking papers during that period.

Steiner recently did an interview with Nick's Strength And Power to talk about bodybuilding, but when his past with the WWE was brought up, it didn't go over too well (quotes via Wrestling Inc.):
"F**k the WWE."

When asked why he felt that way, Steiner stated that it's simply because of the people who run things in the WWE's front office. He primarily took aim at the WWE's ultimate power couple Triple H and Stephanie McMahon:
"Who's in charge and who runs it. There ain't two bigger d*uchebags than Triple H and Stephanie."
Steiner was adamant that he did not watch Wrestlemania 33 this past month, and then proceeded to reign down shots on Triple H and Stephanie McMahon:
"Hell no. Let me ask you something? Why did Triple H make that statue of Ric Flair? So where is it now? Where do you think it's at?
"There's no Hall Of Fame. You got the address to the Hall Of Fame? Where's it at? Where's your guess? Exactly! (Triple H's house).
"And they better not make one of Macho Man. She (Stephanie) made one? Oh, that's definitely in Triple H's house then (laughs)."
Steiner recently made his return to pro wrestling after making an appearance at Impact Wrestling in Orlando last month. He will partner with Josh Mathews at Slammiversary.
It wasn't all WWE bashing during Steiner's interview, however, as he also dove more into his passion for bodybuilding. While he doesn't keep up with it as much as he used to but has fond memories of posing with some of the greats:
"Not as much as I used to, I still look at the magazines and stuff. Back in the day with Ronnie Coleman, there's a fairly famous photo with me doing the bicep pose with him.
"I also did a pose with Arnold at the Arnold Classic one year in Columbus, Ohio. I did but not as much."
Steiner had a tremendous physique back in his youth but was never able to pursue a career in bodybuilding as he went straight into the world of pro wrestling after college:
"No, I wrestled in College. Right after College, I got right into professional wrestling so - I was always a big fan of Arnold, Ferrigno, the guys back in the day.
"After College I never really knew what I wanted to do, so that's why I got into professional wrestling."
