Ricky Steamboat Is Returning To The Ring For Big Time Wrestling
On November 27, 2022, for Big Time Wrestling, the late Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat will make his 69th and final appearance in the ring. Return of the Dragon will be the program’s name, which will come from Raleigh, North Carolina.
The last time Steamboat competed was during his feud with Chris Jericho in early 2009. During that time, Steamboat returned for three: a handicap match against Jericho with Roddy Piper and Jimmy Snuka, a tag match on Monday Night Raw with CM Punk, Jeff Hardy, John Cena, and Rey Mysterio, and finally a one-on-one battle with Jericho.
At this time, he also competed in many house show matches against Jericho and Drew McIntyre, as well as two tag matches with his son Richie Steamboat, later known as Ricky Steamboat Jr., the first of which took place in the World Wrestling Council for Puerto Rico and the second of which occurred in Florida Championship Wrestling nearly a year later.

The Retirement of the Dragon
When PJ Black, then wrestling as Justin Gabriel, awkwardly landed on Ricky Steamboat after a 450 splash on June 28, 2010, during a segment on Monday Night Raw in which heel team The Nexus was to beat down Steamboat, the unfortunate, severe injury to his head and neck occurred (the damage itself has never been publicly disclosed).
As soon as Steamboat “had legitimate discomfort in his neck and shoulders,” he was admitted to the hospital. The last time we saw Steamboat, he acted as the special timekeeper for a 2 Out of 3 Falls bout between Bryan Danielson and Daniel Garcia on an edition of AEW Dynamite.
Who will compete against Steamboat at the tournament is currently unknown. Ricky Steamboat is one of the greatest of all time, and we’re pleased to bring him back to the ring, said Big Time Wrestling co-owner Steve Perkins in a statement to Sports Illustrated. He also claimed that ticket sales began today.
