Ricky Steamboat Discusses His Favorite Matches, Ric Flair and More

WWE Hall of Famer Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat recently sat down with NBC Elmira to discuss numerous wrestling topics. Here are the highlights:

His favorite matches:

“I’ve got two matches and I’ve had over 6,000. ‘Macho Man’ Savage WrestleMania III and then, of course, when I beat Flair for the World Championship.”

Ric Flair:

“Ric and I go way back, we go back to the late 70s. We ran our [matches] on and off – through the mid 90s, about seventeen years. That was a guy, who was two years ahead of me in the business, but went to bat for me in the Carolinas for Crockett Promotions – Mid Atlantic Championship Wrestling at the time and pointed it out that he’d like to do something with me and from that point on it made me a main event guy and the rest is history.”
