Bruce Prichard – ‘Ricky Steamboat’s Verbal Skills Prevented Him From Being A Top Star’



Bruce Prichard says Ricky Steamboat never became a top guy in WWE because of his verbal skills.

While “Brother Love” admits that “The Dragon” was an excellent in-ring worker, the latter didn’t have much when it came to cutting promos.

You can check out some highlights from the latest episode of Prichard’s “Something To Wrestle With” podcast below:

On if Steamboat had the skills to be a top guy in WWE: “No. I don’t think Ricky had the verbal skills to be the top guy. I think he was a little too … I loved Ricky’s work — Oh my god, Ricky’s work was fabulous, but I just don’t know that, to the masses, he could really captivate. He definitely had a charisma to him, he was awesome — unbelievable athlete and talent. But I’m not sure that people believed what he was saying. I’m not sure Ricky believed what he was saying.”

On Steamboat’s verbal skills holding him back: “Ricky just knew he could go out there and do whatever the hell you want him to do — because he was that good. But I think the verbal skills are what would have prevented Ricky from ever being the top guy.”
