Most recently, Steamboat had been working in NXT as a coach, and had been working in the WWE offices under Triple H in the talent relations department.

This past May, Steamboat had been doing promotional work for WWE in Malaysia, but he will be doing non-WWE DVD interviews and wrestling conventions in the coming months, which is a very likely sign he’s finished with WWE.
