Career Highlights:

One of the most well-known tag teams in the world, the Steiner Brothers first arrived to Japan in 1991 and immediately made an impact. In March of 1991 they defeated popular tag team Hiroshi Hase and Kensuke Sasaki to win the IWGP Heavyweight Tag Team Championship for the first time. They would win the title again in 1992, this time defeating monster team Big Van Vader and Bam Bam Bigelow. After leaving New Japan in 1993 to concentrate on their WCW career, the Steiner Brothers would return in May of 2002 to defeat Kensuke Sasaki and Hiroshi Tanahashi. In 2008, they would team together in Japan for perhaps the last time at the New Japan Tokyo Dome show, but they would fall to Travis Tomko and Giant Bernard.
