Ricky Steamboat On Which Heel He Wished He Had A Longer Program With

During an interview with WINCLY, Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat revealed that Ted Dibiase is the one heel that he wished had been able to work a longer program with. Here’s what he had to say:

That was just his character – people see you on TV, but how much of you do they see out of the ring? In the mid-80s when the business took a big change, everybody was living their character. Now, you start getting noticed every inch of the country and then it went around the world. DiBiase, off camera, is a great guy. He wasn’t stuck up or let stardom blow his head up. Even to this day when we see each other he is very cordial. We only had a few matches with each other and always ask each other why we didn’t have a full-blown program. I would have loved to work with Ted and the few matches we had were great. But then again we always ask why couldn’t we go a step farther and work a two or three-month program.
