Ricky Steamboat Speaks on His Health & Aneurism Recovery

Nick Paglino

During a new interview conducted for The Miami Herald, WWE Legend Ricky "The Dragon" Steamboat had the following to say about the current status of his health and recovery from a brain aneurism:

"I'm very happy with as far as I have come," Steamboat said. "Having a brain type aneurism, a brain bleed, really put things in perspective of what a good life and being a good person is really about. I've always been a believer in God, but it sort of renewed and restored the faith that I have in him.

So with that being said, physically I’m about 80 percent of what I was. The doctors have said that they don’t want me in the ring bouncing around or getting picked up and slammed down. They said the old head just can’t survive anymore trauma."
