As reported by fightful, on November 27 at Big Time Wrestling Ricky Steamboat returned to in-ring action teaming up with FTR (Dax Harwood & Cash Wheeler), to take on Jay Lethal, Brock Anderson, & Nick Aldis.
This was Steamboat’s first match since 2010, but It is unknown if Steamboat will wrestle again. Tony Khan has said that he would welcome him back to AEW in any capacity.
“It’s definitely something to keep in mind,” Khan said on Busted Open Radio in reply to Tommy Dreamer’s pitch on Steamboat wrestling in AEW. “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.”
Steamboat took part in the House of the Dragon episode of AEW Dynamite on August 17. He served as the special guest timekeeper for match between Danielson and Daniel Garcia, and also appeared in a backstage segment with Chris Jericho.
“I would love to have Ricky Steamboat back in AEW any time,” Khan stated.
