Prior to taking to the ring on November 27th Ricky Steamboat hadn’t wrestled since June 2010 when he teamed with his son Richie at an FCW event to defeat Caylen Croft and now-AEW star Trent Barreta.
Steamboat almost returned to action back in July, when he was given the opportunity to be part of Ric Flair’s final match, as he wrestled for the first time in 11 years. At the time, ‘The Dragon’ said that while he had thought long and hard about wrestling, he wanted fans to remember him for the performer he was. Steamboat added that he didn’t want to “tarnish the memory” of what he achieved during his last run in the ring which saw him wrestle Chris Jericho at WrestleMania 25 alongside Jimmy Snuka and Roddy Piper.
