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.

Format: DVD
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.

SHOOT....
I can't imagine not giving Ricky "the Dragon" Steamboat 5 stars and I do enjoy this DVD set very much... his series of matches with Flair, Jake the Snake and Savage are the stuff of legend, and full of "story". So many other reviewers have documented the contents and its been out for some time... I'll just weigh in for what its worth with my biggest gripe or regret. Ricky and the host do audio commentary for a few matches and most notably the Wrestlemania III classic with Randy "Macho Man" Savage. However, they treat it Kayfabe ...and what this means to non-wrestling fans is they go over the match like its a real event instead of a pre worked out performance which of course it was. Ricky has talked about this on other "shoot" DVDs and in print and I was really looking forward to his discussing how Savage wanted everything planned to the most small detail and discussing the behind the scenes on the story and moves but instead the commentator took him down the road to "pretend" and so the audio commentary isn't only boring its ridiculous and insulting. For those who want to pretend they could easily just watch the match with the normal announcer commentary but its odd to have a "behind the scenes" audio commentary that continues that myth. Although Ricky has talked about that match on other places I was so looking forward to him discussing it while he (and we as viewers) watched it and I consider this a huge opportunity lost.
