9. Ring Steel Steps Are Incredibly Heavy
Remember how much wrestling announcers would hype those darn steel steps? Depending on who was talking, those things weighed anywhere from one-hundred to over three-hundred pounds! Well, if you were a kid, all of that talk worked really well. Whenever the steps were used it was literally amazing any wrestler could recover after getting a three-hundred pound hunk of steel thrown at their head.
In reality, these steels steps weighed anywhere from 20-40 pounds, obviously, if mishandled, they could still do damage, but not as much as the announcers would typically say in the 90’s or earlier.
