There was a scary moment backstage at Friday’s Impact Wrestling taping in Atlanta when Scott Steiner collapsed and was rushed to the hospital.

The news was first reported by Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful stating Steiner was there doing pre-tapes.

The taping occurred at the Coca Cola Roxy in Atlanta for a TNA nostalgia-themed show being filmed to air later this month on AXS TV.

There were updates later in the night provided by Scott D’Amore and Tommy Dreamer with D’Amore noting Steiner is ‘OK’.

For all concerned parties @ScottSteiner is OK.
His family is grateful for everybody’s concern and support.

Steiner, 57, has remained semi-active in the latter stages of his career. According to Cagematch, Steiner did fourteen matches in 2019 and has wrestled three times this year, including at the NWA’s ‘Hard Times’ pay-per-view this past January.

His career began in 1986 and has worked at various points of his career with TNA/Impact Wrestling since 2006. In 2018, he won the Impact tag titles with Eli Drake that the pair held for two days.

Later on Saturday, Tommy Dreamer posted another update stating Steiner was expected to make a full recovery.
