Def Jam Games Wiki

Steel is a circuit fighter and a playable character in Def Jam Vendetta.


Tyrone grew up in Pittsburgh, and followed his father into the steel industry. He earned the nickname "Steel" both for his trade and his incredible physique. After several years of Muay Thai training, he entered an underground fight tournament in Philadelphia. He was seen by DMX, who was impressed by his size and raw talent. X brought him back to NYC, hiring him as a personal bodyguard and training him as a prospect in the circuit there. He has quickly earned a reputation as a punishing opponent who makes up for his lack of technical skill with overwhelming strength and power.
