Ricky Steamboat's Return Match Revealed

Who will Ricky Steamboat team with?

While he has been retired since 2010, Ricky Steamboat will come out of retirement later this year and his return match has been revealed.

At Big Time Wrestling's Return of the Dragon show on November 27, Ricky Steamboat will team with FTR to take on Black Machismo (Jay Lethal), Brock Anderson, and a mystery partner. Arn Anderson will be the heel team's manager. 

Also set for the show is The Briscoes vs. The Rock 'N' Roll Express in what will be Ricky Morton and Robert Gibson's final match at the Dorton Arena in Raleigh, North Carolina. 

November 27 will be Steamboat's first match since he teamed with son Richie Steamboat at an FCW show in 2010. He previously came out of retirement in 2009 for WrestleMania 25 and he impressed so much that Steamboat had a short run on TV, including a singles pay-per-view match with Chris Jericho. He previously retired in 1994 due to a serious back injury. 

Steamboat was offered the chance to come out of retirement earlier this year to face career-rival Ric Flair in his last match. The Dragon turned down the offer, though.
