Welcome to Crossbody of Work, a show where we break down a wrestler’s career through five of their biggest matches.

This week we look at the career of Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat. One of the best pure babyfaces of the 80s & 90s, Steamboat has had many monumental matches in his career. From his first run in WWF to his NWA Championship run, Steamboat always had the fans behind him. He even had enough gas in the tank to wrestle Chris Jericho in 2009. On top of all these matches, Evan & Javier also talk about:

  • Favorite world title designs
  • The Chicago Bears
  • Arn Anderson appreciation
  • The movie “The Wrestler”

And a lot more.
