Steve went to school at Lakewood High School

He was one of the star athletes
So much so that he was given an athletic scholarship
to the University of Oklahoma where he
got the name Dr Death because of his tuff reputation.
This is were the Oklahoma Stamped was mastered.
No one could tear down a defensive line
like Dr Death using the Oklahoma Stamped.
After four years of collage
He graduated in 1982 with a B.S. in health and recreation.
Soon after college he signed a contract with the
USFL New Jersey Generals,
As a Offensive Guard he was cut in 1983 for playing to rough.
It was then that promoter Bill Watts offered

During this period he held the ,
World Heavyweight Championship in 1987,
Tag team champion in 1986 and 1988
From there he moved to the NWA (National Wrestling Association)
this one lasted from 1987 through 1988.
From there he moved on to the New NWA, this is when Ted Turner
bought into the wrestling business.
Steve left the NWA in 1990. This is where he left the eyes and ears
of american wrestling fans, it was like he dropped of the earth,
other then a few appearances here and there.
He had signed a contract with the All Japan Wrestling.
where he has held countless titles and belts
as only Dr Death could do.
Including the International Tag Team Champion in 1990.
He has been there the last seven years.
