Did anyone notice how “flabby” Ricky ‘The Dragon’ Steamboat was at Wrestlemania on Sunday? To his credit, the 56 year old looked like his old self, wrestling against Chris Benoit. But, compare pictures of him back in 1989 during his legendary match-up with Ric Flair to last Sunday’s extravaganza. I’m not sure if it’s because he’s been away from the business for so long, or if steroids played a part in his career.
I love to watch the mat classics, especially the old AWA matches on ESPN Classic. I don’t dare ask how Medusa Miccelli looks now 20 years afterwards. Even Shawn Michaels looks like he could use a little Rogaine there on the noggin right about now!
But maybe, that’s just about it. Sometimes the past just needs to be left back in the pack.
