Scott Fishman of The Miami Herald has a new article online featuring a Q&A with Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat. One of the first issues addressed is his health as Steamboat suffered a brain aneurism a year and a half ago. Below is an excerpt:
“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 all 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.”
