Ricky Steamboat Comments On In-Ring Future Ahead Of Return

Does Steamboat have more matches planned after his comeback?

WWE Hall of Famer Ricky Steamboat has addressed his in-ring future ahead of his comeback match this weekend. 

The Dragon will team up with FTR to take on Jay Lethal, Brock Anderson and a mystery partner at a Big Time Wrestling event on Sunday, November 27. 

It will be Steamboat's first match since he teamed with his son Richie on a Florida Championship Wrestling show in June of 2010. 

Speaking with Wrestling Inc., the former NWA Worlds Heavyweight Champion discussed whether or not he would consider having another match in WWE or AEW after this Sunday, saying: 

"I really don't think, I don't think so. Going down to Prichard's ring, understanding my limitations and just going to give it one more shot. I don't have the type of ego to where I need to go out there, whether it's to enjoy it or whether to prove something that I can still do it. I don't have that mindset. I'm looking at this really as a big thank you to all the fans in Raleigh. 

"That's basically, and the reasons that I gave...Being in the ring the first time with the World Champion, the support they gave me through the eight years that I campaigned throughout the Carolinas. And that's the reason, I'm passing off a big thank you card to the wrestling fans. That's what comes to my mind".

Fellow wrestling legend Bret 'The Hitman' Hart recently said he would be 'rooting' for Steamboat in his return match.
