Return to the WWE

Scott returned to the WWE in 2002 and signed a three-year contract. He made his second debut at Survivor Series in Madison Square Garden. There, Scott Steiner attacked Matt Hardy and Christopher Nowinski after they delivered a promo insulting New York City, establishing him as a face. In 2003, Steiner began feuding with World Heavyweight Champion Triple H, and Evolution. They began competing against one another for strength and muscle conditioning leading to world title matches at the Royal Rumble and No Way Out. Steiner won the first match by disqualification after Triple H attacked him with a sledgehammer, but lost the second match at No Way Out via pinfall.

Various Feuds

Steiner went head to head against Nowinski in a debate over the Iraq War. Later, Steiner formed a tag team with Test, with Stacy Keibler as their manager. The team lasted several months and feuded with La Résistance. They broke up after Test turned heel. On June 15, Steiner defeated Test in a grudge match to win the managerial services of Keibler at Bad Blood but lost her back to Test in a rematch. His last WWE match was as a part of the 2004 Royal Rumble, lasting over 6 minutes before being eliminated by Booker T. Steiner suffered an injury in 2004, sidelining him for two months. While injured, he was released from WWE on August 17, 2004.

Scott Steiner wife

Steiner has been married to Christa Podsedly since June 7, 2000. They have two children together. Podsedly and Steiner’s relationship has survived over two decades. While the reason behind their beautiful relationship could be a special bonding and the understanding they have together. But their first meeting was as normal as for any other couple. The duo met for the first time at a gym. The first meeting soon turned into friendship which transformed into a marriage. They reportedly dated for quite a while before they finally decided to tie the knot.
