Here’s Scott Steiner kicking a Polish dumpling’s ass, because that’s what happens when Big Poppa Pump goes to Pittsburgh


I’ve tried to tell y’all (or should I say yinz?) before about my hometown of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and professional wrestling.

Sure, Cleveland tried to get in on the action the last couple weeks. But we’ve got Bruno Sammartino, Larry Zbyszko & Kurt Angle. They’ve got Miz, Dolph Ziggler and Johnny Gargano. We’ll take our chances, even with an 80 year old, a 60 year old and a broken freakin’ neck.

But I digress.

The point here is, when our local nine invite former pro grapplers like Angle, Booker T, Tito Santana, the Nasty Boyz and especially Scott Steiner to the yard for “Legends of Wrestling” night, things might get a little weird.

And I don’t just mean Brian Knobbs might eat a belt weird.

Western Pennsylvania is heavily populated by descendents of Eastern European immigrants, so when the time comes for a mid-inning diversion, the Pirates have people dressed up like Polish dumplings racing around the field.

For “Legends of Pro Wrestling” night, those dumplings - most commonly known as pierogie - took the theme to heart. But when the presumably beer-filled Stone Cold pierogie took out his nearest rival with a rough-looking Stunner, Big Poppa Pump wasn’t havin’ it.

After a Steinerline, he showed the pasta freak his peaks and dropped the elbow, ensuring that no-good Mrs. T’s rattlesnake didn’t steal a win.

Hopefully, Steiner was also looking into expanding his restaurant business to the ‘Burgh while in town, so we can have more moments like this in the future.
