WWE Hall of Famer Ricky ‘The Dragon’ Steamboat is set to return to the ring this winter. Per Sports Illustrated.
Steamboat hasn’t fought a match in the twelve years since he teamed up with his son Richie Steamboat against the Dudbusters, Kellen Croft, and AEW star Trent Beretta.
There were reportedly discussions for Steamboat to be part of Ric Flair’s Last Match in July, but Steamboat declined the offer.
Now however, Steamboat is set to wrestle for Big Time Wrestling on November 27, 2022 at Dorton Arena in Raleigh, North Carolina.
Speaking about Steamboat, Big Time Wrestling co-owner Steve Perkins said:
“Ricky Steamboat is one of the greatest of all time, and we are excited to have a legend back in the ring. Interest will be high, and ticket sales begin today.”
Steamboat wrestled at WrestleMania 25 in 2009 as part of a feud between Chris Jericho and Mickey Rourke, in which Jericho defeated several WWE Hall of Famers.
Many considered Steamboat, including Jericho himself, who looked so dominant in the match that he faced Jericho in a singles match at Backlash a month later.
