Ricky SteamboatThe following is an excerpt from an article in The Star Bulletin, which features comments from WWE Superstar Chris Jericho. In the piece, Jericho talks about his upcoming WWE house show match in Honolulu, Hawaii with WWE Hall Of Famer Ricky "The Dragon" Steamboat.

"I’m looking forward to it. I don’t really look at Steamboat as a legend. He’s just a great performer and one of the best of all time. It’d be like playing hockey against Wayne Gretzky — even though he retired years ago, he’s still better than half the people on the ice nowadays. Steamboat, at 55 years old, is still better than 80 percent of our roster … (and) being from Hawaii, it’s a huge deal. It’s going to be very sentimental for him and the fans, and of course I plan to spoil it and stick it in his face and all of the fans when I end the party and annihilate him in front of everyone."
