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.
