• Ricky Steamboat’s Return Match Opponents Revealed

Old School WWF Legend Ricky ‘The Dragon’ Steamboat wrestled his last match in June of 2010, when he and his son Richie Steamboat defeated Caylen Croft & Trent Barreta at a Florida Championship Wrestling (WWE’s developmental brand, now known as NXT) LIVE event.

Big Time Wrestling recently announced the in-ring return of The Dragon for their November 27th show at the Dorton Arena in Raleigh, North Carolina.

Steamboat’s return match has now been officially announced.

The WWE Hall Of Famer will compete in a 6-man tag team match, where he will team up with AEW Tag Team FTR (who are the current IWGP, ROH & AAA Tag Team Champions) to take on the team of Jay Lethal, Brock Anderson (managed by his father Arn Anderson) and a mystery partner.

For those who don’t know, Ric Flair approached Steamboat a few months back to compete in his Last Match on July 31st, but Steamboat turned down the offer.

Flair had the following to say about it during an interview with Chris Van Vliet:

“I talked with Steamboat for a long time and he’s got issues with his back and his shoulder. I think that if Ricky wanted to go out, he had that great run with [Chris] Jericho back in 2009 I think.

I think Ricky wanted to go out with that memory, because he was as good back then as he was in his prime. He had some great matches and he liked the, ‘You still got it’ (chant from the fans). Why put that on the line again?”
