One of the most technical athletes in past WWE history is definitely Ricky Steamboat, also called The Dragon by fans and the company, for his movements are very similar to the famous fire-breathing monster from mythology.
During his career in the rings of the WCW and the then WWF, Ricky has had the most disparate disputes and feuds with all the greatest athletes in the history of the company, from Ric Flair to "Macho Man" Randy Savage, up to Jake "The Snake" Roberts.
After retiring, Ricky reappeared in the WWE rings afterwards, ending up in a feud against Chris Jericho, in which Steamboat revealed that he was still in excellent physical shape, despite having well past the age threshold for being "old enough" "to do pro-wrestling.
Although the athlete has never won anything major in terms of titles, fans of the WWE Universe still remember Ricky Steamboat as one of the best technical wrestlers ever.

Apparently, in recent years Ricky Steamboat would have had several problems to solve, with his longtime colleague Jake "The Snake" Roberts, who became famous for always carrying a snake with him to scare his opponents in the WWF rings, which in his last speech to the microphones of his interview, confirmed that there are serious problems in the life of Steamboat, even if we do not know for sure what they are.
To the microphones of the DDP Snake Pit podcast, the WWE Hall of Famer with a moustache, spoke about the situation linked to the psycho-physical health of the colleague: "To be honest with you, I know Steamboat is having problems right now.
I hope he's not getting what I have. I really hope so, man, because it haunted me. He started scaring the shit out of me. Ricky, if you're listening, you know I never meant to. I didn't want to do it. I begged you not to. I just pray for you friend.
He's a great man, man." Steamboat is a former WWE Intercontinental Champion and an eight-time WCW World Tag Team Champion. The Dragon was part of several promotions during his career, including NWA, WCW, and WWF (now WWE). He last competed in WWE at WrestleMania in 2009 alongside Jimmy Snuka and Roddy Piper in a three-on-one handicap match against Chris Jericho.
Steamboat wrestled his last match in 2010 alongside his son Richie at Florida Championship Wrestling. They defeated Trent Barretta and Caylen Croft.
