Chris Jericho Discusses Working With Ricky Steamboat


During his new podcast, Chris Jericho spoke about getting the chance to work with Ricky Steamboat. Here is what he had to say…

“I was working with the Hall of Famers. It was a handicap match – me versus Piper, Snuka and Steamboat. I actually lobbied to get Steamboat in the match; Vince wanted Greg Valentine. Steamboat hadn’t worked in 7, 8 years or so. But Steamboat in his 50s, after not working in 7 or 8 years, was still 80-percent better than 80-percent better. That’s just how naturally good he is … We worked four singles matches: one of them in Tokyo, one in Honolulu, one in Greensboro, South Carolina and all those matches got successively better. The last one we had was actually one of my favorite matches; a ‘five star’ match if you can call it that.”
