• WWF Legend Turns Down Idea Of Royal Rumble Return: “It’s just not in the heart anymore”

On November 27th 2022, WWF Legend Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat came out of retirement after 12 years for a match.

He teamed up with FTR to defeat Nick Aldis, Jay Lethal & Brock Anderson.

During an interview with Bill Apter, Steamboat was asked if he’d be willing to enter the Men’s Royal Rumble 2023 match later this month.

Below is what the former Intercontinental Champion (who will turn 70 next month) said:

“Thanks, but no thanks. Yeah, I think it’s too big of a stage for me. I had a really good showing 12 years ago with [Chris Jericho]. God bless him. He took care of me. That was really the last Steamboat that people saw.

I felt that was the last time that people saw 70% of the young guy. I could carry my weight, and that’s the way I want it.

No, Triple H could say, ‘We’re going to take care of you.’ No, to be honest with you, Bill, it’s just not in the heart anymore.”
