The Steiner Brothers will “Steinerize” in Florida tomorrow night. Dory Funk Jr will be hosting his “Bang! TV Network” show at The Belleview High School in Belleview, FL and the Hall Of Fame talent will be tagging up with two other hall of famers in Rick and Scott Steiner as they face off against three of Funk’s students.

“You never really know you’re part of something until later. I had a blast. I got to wrestle with my brother and got to meet a lot of great guys,” said Rick Steiner, who started investing in real estate with other wrestlers in the 1990s and currently sells commercial and residential real estate.
While he doesn’t wrestle professionally anymore, he couldn’t turn down an opportunity to perform with Funk.
“I’m only doing it because it’s Dory. That’s how much respect I have for him,” Steiner said. “I’m an old man now, everything hurts. But we’re going to have fun.”
Funk, who famously paired up with his brother, Terry, for some tag team matches, has never wrestled with or against the Steiners in his long career.
“I’m absolutely thrilled to have the Steiner brothers as guests. It’s an honor to be in a tag team match with them,” Funk said.
Proceeds from the event will benefit the Superintendent’s Literacy Fund.
