At Sunday night’s Big Time Wrestling event in Raleigh, North Carolina, 69-year-old WWE Hall of Famer Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat made his in-ring return. Steamboat teamed with FTR against Black Machismo Jay Lethal, Brock Anderson (with Arn Anderson), and Nick Aldis.
Steamboat did some of his trademark moves including the arm drag. Steamboat cleaned house at one point and Arn even took a bump for Steamboat. Steamboat and FTR won the match via submission when they applied stereo figure four leglocks to their opponents.
Dax Harwood of FTR wrote the following regarding the match…
“I watched from the apron in amazement tonight. It had nothing to do with his moves or his athleticism. I was in awe of the little things he did. Things that made millions fall in absolute love with Ricky. They all reacted to the man; not the moves. I felt inferior tonight.”
Here are the video highlights…
