Ricky Steamboat returned to the ring on November 27th at Big Time Wrestling, teaming with FTR to battle Jay Lethal, Brock Anderson, and Nick Aldis. It was Steamboat’s first match since 2010. It’s still unclear whether Steamboat will return to AEW, but Tony Khan would welcome him back in any capacity.
Tony Khan mentioned it on Busted Open Radio when Tommy Dreamer suggested Steamboat wrestling in AEW. Tony feels Ricky Steamboat’s return to the ring is amazing. He also expressed his excitement over Dax Harwood fighting Bryan Danielson, two of the best pro wrestlers in the world, tonight.
I think it’s amazing that Ricky Steamboat got back in the ring. FTR, one of the greatest tag teams on the planet. I’m excited tonight for Dax Harwood to go one on one with Bryan Danielson, two of the best pro wrestlers in the world. It’s certainly something to think about, Ricky Steamboat’s last match, one of my personal heroes. Somebody, as a kid, one of my all-time favorites and to this day one of my all-time favorites. I do think he was a great part of AEW already when he came in as the guest timekeeper.
On August 17th, Steamboat appeared in the House of the Dragon episode of AEW Dynamite. He appeared with Chris Jericho in a backstage segment. He was the guest timekeeper for Danielson vs. Daniel Garcia.
I would love to have Ricky Steamboat back in AEW any time.
Danielson will compete in a singles competition on Wednesday’s AEW Dynamite against Dax Harwood. Let’s see how it goes. To get the latest updates, keep an eye on Ringside News.
