Christa Podsedly is an American businesswoman who was co-owner of Shoney’s Kitchen & Bar, a business she owned with her husband. She is best recognized as the wife of well-known WWE superstar Scott Carl Rechsteiner, known through his stage name of Scott Steiner.
Scott Steiner was one of the biggest names in the WWE universe and worked in the business for a long time, experiencing some highs and lows in the process. He and Christa Podsedly have been a married couple for a long time now, and it is not unusual for the spotlight on a celebrity to rub off on their spouses. In this case, the celebrity spouse is Christa Podsedly, and here is all you need to know about her.
Christa Podsedly Was Reportedly Born In The 50s
Christa Podsedly was born in Fairport, New York City, United States of America. Several online sources have claimed that the celebrity wife supposedly came into this world in the 1950s. If there’s any validity to these reports, it would simply mean that Christa Podsedly is a few years older than her husband, Scott Steiner.
She belongs to the Caucasian ethnic group and holds American citizenship. Christa Podsedly is one of two children born to an American couple, David Aloys Podsedly and Susan M. Podsedly. Her father, David, attended Michigan State University, where he most likely studied engineering since he spent almost half his life working as one for Eastman Kodak Company.
The celebrity wife’s father retired to Hendersonville, NC, after 37 years with Eastman Kodak Company. Sadly, he only lived to be 69 years old before succumbing to pancreatic cancer on November 10, 2011. It was a disease he battled for the last six months of his life. Not much is known about Christa’s mother, Susan. The celebrity wife has a brother named Stephen M. Podsedly, and he is reportedly a musician.
Regarding her formal education, it has been recorded that Christa Podsedly attended the State University of New York College located at Cortland. While there, she earned the required credits to graduate with a Bachelor of Science, Biology/Biological Sciences, General Minor in Wellness & Health Promotion.
Christa Podsedly is a fitness enthusiast. As a student of the institution, she was the captain of the Gymnastic team for three years while also serving as the president of the BACCHUS Network.
She Is Still Scott Steiner’s Wife
Christa Podsedly has been married to professional WWE superstar Scott Steiner for more than two decades. The couple got married in June 2000 in a lowkey but an eventful ceremony that was attended by only close friends and family members. Unlike several celebrity marriages, Christa’s and Scott’s commitment and hard work have ensured that theirs is still going strong.
They are quite vocal about their love and appreciation for each other’s attributes and contribution to the success of their relationship. It didn’t seem that way for Christa, who met her husband for the first time in a gym.
Before their first meeting at the gym, Christa had seen Scott several times on TV due to his profession as a WWE superstar. Nonetheless, her impression of him was of a man who would not be caring. This impression was formed due to Steiner’s on-screen and stage abrasive persona and wrestling style.
Christa and her husband both share a passion for fitness, which allowed her to get closer to the pro wrestler and get to know him better. They soon became close friends, and she was delighted to be rid of her initial negative impression of a man with who she has now been married for the best part of 20 years. Their relationship as friends soon progressed into a more romantic nature and the rest, as they say, is history.
Christa Podsedly And Scott Steiner Have Two Children Together
The couple’s more than 20 years old marriage has produced two beautiful children, both sons. Christa’s first son, Brock Rechsteiner, was reportedly born in August 2002, just two years after her wedding ceremony in June 2000. She has a second child named Brandon Rechsteiner, but his birth date is currently unknown. Christa’s family is tight-knit, and they currently reside in Georgia.
It would also appear that Brock and Brandon have followed their athletic father’s footsteps. Brock is a football player who is currently nursing NFL ambitions. He is also in a romantic relationship with Neva Clark, a volleyball player. Christa’s other son, Brandon, excels in another ball-playing sport. His basketball pedigree is something that several news outlets have raved about, and he appears to be on his way to the NBA and being a professional basketball player.
Christa Podsedly Used To Co-own A Restaurant With Her Husband
The celebrity wife has previously shown fleeting signs of having business acumen. One such instance of this business capability was displayed from 2016 to 2020. Christa was the co-owner of Shoney’s Kitchen & Bar, a restaurant business she founded with her husband in 2016. The business was located in Acworth, Georgia.
Until its closure in 2020 due to the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic, the business turned a decent profit through the patronage of its steady flow of paying customers. Christa and her husband used the platform of the restaurant’s Facebook page to pay special tribute to these paying customers when they announced the closure of the restaurant in 2020.
In the process of announcing the closure of the business, Christa and her husband announced that they would be opening a sports bar soon afterward. While there hasn’t been any verifiable news of progress on that, Christa and her family are not the worse for wear financially. However, her current net worth of an estimated $2 million might suggest that the sports bar project is already underway and thriving.
