Professional wrestling is known for its feuds — after all, there has to be a reason why all these grown men keep beating each other down on a weekly basis. However, there have been plenty of incidents in which the in-ring brawls cross over into the outside world — stories of real-life rivalries between athletes are extremely common, though few ever amount to threats of physical violence.

Unfortunately, that's exactly what happened with Scott Steiner and Hulk Hogan (real name Terry Bollea) during the week of WrestleMania. According to TMZ Sports and Jennifer McDaniel (Hogan's wife), Steiner had a few choice words for her after arriving in San Jose.

It's been known for some time that Steiner has had issues with Hogan in the ring, as the two athletes had butted heads over the fate of WCW in the past, but again — threats of personal violence had never been a part of the picture.

Until a chance meeting at an airport, that is.

Upon arriving in baggage claim, Steiner allegedly grabbed McDaniel and said that he planned to "kill Terry as soon as he lands."

According to McDaniel, she called Hogan immediately following the incident — after taking the next flight into San Jose, the former WWE Superstar and his wife contacted local police. Steiner was then banned from the WWE Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony on the night before WrestleMania 31, though there's been no word on any police action just yet.

While Steiner hasn't been taken into custody, he is being investigated for "felony terrorist threats," and TMZ claims authorities have airport security footage that confirms Steiner confronted McDaniel on the date of the incident. When confronted about the incident, Steiner told TMZ that it was nothing:

"Typical Hogan. He's just a punk."

Whether or not Steiner will actually face any charges is still up in the air, but if video footage of Steiner confronting McDaniel at the airport exists, it lends quite a bit of credibility to her story. If it turns out that Steiner actually threatened Hogan within the San Jose airport, things could get a whole lot worse for Steiner.
