Don't be too sure. I predict a similar state of affairs on SD. With who? Hmmmm
Angle needs to blow off his feud with Benoit, so I see that building for awhile. But Angle would be gold.
Rey, even though busy being tag champ, would be my thought. But I hope for Angle.
I predict that Steiner doesn't "sign" for several more weeks.
You don't think somebody full of Mattitude would let some guy get away with walking in on him (his interruption of Chris Nowinski, more specifically), & tossing him around? That's the tease that we're going to get on Smackdown!
Am I the only one that finds it humorous (in a laugh at him instead of laugh with him type of way) that Scott Steiner constantly tries to put himself over as a "female pleasuring machine". No matter what he's talking about or what he's asked he always does it. He did it a couple of times in his WWE.com interview, even though the questions had nothing to do with the direction he went in. He did it again on Raw when he got off on a tangeant about giving women "The Big O".
It just makes him seem sexually frustrated to me. Usually, the guys that talk the most, do the least. Maybe all those steroids have left "The Big Bad Booty Daddy" with the little limp mushroom cap.
How bad is his back? Has he had surgery? I've heard a real mixture of conjecture about his health. He back seems very stable. Military pressing 250 lb wrestlers isn't easy and he seemed fairly flexible on those release suplexes. I'm wondering how bad can he really be?

Originally posted by DarrylTheHitmanI don't know about his back but I thought his most recent problem was drop foot. Is that related to the back too? Or is that a separate problem?
Drop Foot Syndrome simply means that the person can't flex their foot. When we walk, our foot flexes up, or flattens out, which allows our foot to get up off the ground and then land with some balance. When someone with DFS lifts their leg off the ground, they can't flex their foot so their their foot just dangles. As a result, someone with DFS drags the foot with DFS when they walk.
There are braces, or sleeves, for people with DFS. The brace basically holds the foot in the flattened position constantly, which can cause the same problems and pain that Brian Pillman had to deal with after his ankle was fused and the flexibility was taken away from his ankle. I don't know if Scott Steiner is having to wear one of those braces or if he doesn't have the problem anymore.
But, yes, Steiner's Drop Foot Syndrome probably is related to his back problem. One of the causes of DFS is nerve damage caused during operations, such as the serious back operation Steiner had a few years ago. Other causes of DFS are genetic nerve problems and strokes.
D-Lo is kind of like Raven, in that they were both underutilized. D-Lo was a good wrestler- it's all a matter of finding the right gimmick or angle, and the writers couldn't do it. I wouldn't be surprised to see him end up in NWA-TNA.
