Length: 6 hrs (3 DVD)

RICKY STEAMBOAT: LIFE STORY OF THE DRAGON (This is a decent effort at a set for the career of Ricky Steamboat. The gem, of course, is the previously unseen 1-hr draw with Flair. I've got a master, VQ is EX.)
Documentary (Very shallow documentary on Steamboat that really isn't up to the level of other WWF-produced docs) Ricky Steamboat & Jay Youngblood vs Jack & Jerry Brisco, NWA, 11/24/83 (Steamboat & Youngblood win the NWA world tag titles) Ricky Steamboat vs Ric Flair, NWA, 3/17/84 (From the "Boogie Jam" show in Greensoboro. Only a couple minutes of this ever aired before but now we get the full 1-hr draw, which actually goes only about 55 minutes as they shave some time.) RICKY STEAMBOAT VS BOB ORTON, WWF, 7/20/85 (Fantastic match between two guys that could REALLY go. Just two true pros working a fabulous match.) Ricky Steamboat vs Don Muraco, 9/22/85 (Lumberjack) Ricky Steamboat vs Jake Roberts, WWF, 8/9/86 (Jake dominates the entire match before taking a clean pinfall loss) Ricky Steamboat vs Randy Savage, WWF, 3/29/87 (From Wrestlemania III - Steamboat wins I-C title; I don't like this nearly as much as a lot of people) RICKY STEAMBOAT VS RIC FLAIR, NWA, 4/2/89 (2/3 Falls - ***** match!) Ricky Steamboat vs Lex Luger, NWA , 7/23/89 (From Luger's short run as an excellent worker) RICKY STEAMBOAT & DUSTIN RHODES VS ARN ANDERSON & LARRY ZBYSZKO, WCW, 11/19/91 (Ricky & Dustin win WCW World tag titles) RICKY STEAMBOAT VS RICK RUDE, WCW, 6/20/92 (Iron Man) Ricky Steamboat vs Steve Austin, WCW, 9/2/92 (No DQ - Steamboat wins WCW TV title) Ricky Steamboat vs Chris Jericho, WWF, 4/26/09 (Good match! Steamboat turns back the clock and looks great before finally submitting)
