Editorial Reviews

Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat is one of the most legendary performers in the history of sports entertainment. The popular superstar made his name in the Carolina territory and went on to become a fan favorite in WCW and WWE. His battles with Ric Flair for the NWA Championship kept fans on the edge of their seats and his Intercontinental Championship match with “Macho Man” Randy Savage is considered by many the greatest match in WrestleMania annals. Now for the first time ever on DVD, fans can relive the career of Ricky Steamboat. This 3-DVD set has a biographical documentary feature on Steamboat’s life, as well as some of the biggest matches of his career .

Format: DVD
Finally, one of the most highly requested DVD sets of all time, in regards to a wrestling legend, has finally been released in regards to without a doubt one of the greatest inring performers & a man who never had to work as a heel thoughout his career because of how loved he was by the fans...a rarety in wrestling for as long as he's been in the business. You'll hear from various people throughout the presentation such as the various legends (Ric Flair, Jack & Gerald Brisco, Iron Sheik, Harley Race, Tony Atlas, Steve Kern, Roddy Piper, Bob Orton Jr., Gene Okerland, Jim Cornette, Jim Crockett, Barry Windham, Magnum T.A., Sgt. Slaughter, Dean Malenko, Jake Roberts, James J. Dillion, Arn Anderson, Michael Hayes, Don Muraco, Bret Hart) & current WWE talent (Edge, Chris Jericho, Christian, Kofi Kingston, Evan Bourne, William Regal, Dustin "Goldust" Rhodes) and even a few new faces that we haven't heard from before (NWA referee Tommy Young, NWA booker George Scott, George "The Animal" Steele, and his son Richie Steamboat).

The documentry stars with Steamboat talking about where he really grew up at & how his father's job caused him to move all around the world. His early amature wrestling days along with his first exposure to professional wrestling is discussed before going into the story of how he ended up going to Verne Gagne's camp. The story behind his name being changed to Steamboat, his travels through various NWA territories, how Ric Flair went to bat for him, and how him not fully dedicating himself to the business stopped him from being a top star. His famous tag team with Jay Youngblood was heavily discussed as far as them being friends in & out of the ring along with their feuds with Sgt. Slaughter & Don Kernodle along with the Briscos leading to their Starrcade match.

RICKY STEAMBOAT: THE LIFE STORY OF "THE DRAGON" is one of WWE's best DVD sets to date. The documentary was excellent, with Steamboat humbly recalling his ascent to the top of professional wrestling. There was some great stuff from his peers and today's stars as well as from his son, Ritchie, as well. My only gripe about the documentary was that it was too short. It's difficult to capture a lifetime in only one hour, but it was done about as well it could've been in that time.

There are hundreds of different matches that could have gone on this DVD set, but those which were included were excellent.

In a business full of tragic stories, Ricky Steamboat's story is one with a happy ending. He rose to the top of his game, stepped away on his own terms, and now helps build young WWE talent while watching his own son work his way through their developmental system.

If you're a wrestling fan, this is a must-have.

One of the original high flyers, a great athlete and one of the true good guys in the wrestling business. He's Ricky Steamboat and this is his story in and out of the ring.

-We hear from Ricky about his growing up and being from a military family that he moved around a lot in his childhood. He also got into amateur wrestling and did very well but decided to try and go make it big in wrestling so he signed up for and trained at the infamous Verne Gagne training camp. He was trained by the Iron Sheik and from how Ricky made it sound the training was brutal so its no wonder few made it through the whole camp.

-After he made it through the training he began to work through Florida which is where he got the name Steamboat and many of the NWA territories and of course how Ric Flair brought him to the Carolina's, which was a good natural rivalry to say the least. The friendship he had with Jay Youngblood was talked about, especially how they were inseperable ever outside of the ring. Also how they had runs as the tag teams champions, including a story of how he and Jay had a month stretch of cage matches every night for a month. Of course the famous Starrcade '83 match they had with the Briscos is discussed, which was a good one.

-When he came to the WWE he was giving the gimmick/nickname of "the dragon", which did lead into a very good rivalry with Jake "The Snake" Roberts, including the moment where Steamboat gets DDT'd on the floor. His feud with Randy Savage is talked about, from the goofy moment where he was hit throat first against the guardrail and had to pretend to learn how to speak again, to the fantastic match at Wrestlemania III which holds up to this day as great stuff. I did enjoy the story and reasoning behind Steamboat having such a short I.C.
