The Steiner Brothers are the professional wrestling tag team of American brothers Robert "Rick Steiner" Rechsteiner and Scott "Scott Steiner" Rechsteiner. The brothers wrestled as amateurs at the University of Michigan. The team debuted in 1989, and competed in promotions such as Extreme Championship Wrestling, New Japan Pro Wrestling, World Championship Wrestling and the World Wrestling Federation, winning in the process 10 World Tag Team and one United States Tag Team Championships, before disbanding in 1998. The brothers reunited on the independent circuit in the early 2000s, and Total Nonstop Action Wrestling in May 2007.
They are one of two tag teams to win the WWF World Tag Team Championship, the WCW World Tag Team Championship and the IWGP Tag Team Championship in professional wrestling history (the other being the Dudley Boyz/Team 3D) and the only team to achieve that before WCW was purchased by the WWF.

Famous quotes containing the words brothers and/or steiner:
“O sinewy silver biplane, nudging the winds withers!
There, from Kill Devils Hill at Kitty Hawk
Two brothers in their twinship left the dune;
Warping the gale, the Wright wind wrestlers veered
Capeward, then blading the winds flank, banked and spun.”
—Hart Crane (18991932)
“The violent illiteracies of the graffiti, the clenched silence of the adolescent, the nonsense cries from the stage-happening, are resolutely strategic. The insurgent and the freak-out have broken off discourse with a cultural system which they despise as a cruel, antiquated fraud. They will not bandy words with it. Accept, even momentarily, the conventions of literate linguistic exchange, and you are caught in the net of the old values, of the grammars that can condescend or enslave.”
—George Steiner (b. 1929)
