Ricky Steamboat returned to the ring at Big Time Wrestling on November 27, teaming with FTR (Dax Harwood & Cash Wheeler) to take on Jay Lethal, Brock Anderson, & Nick Aldis.
It was Steamboat's first match since 2010. It is unknown if Steamboat will wrestle again, but Tony Khan would welcome him back to AEW in any capacity.
"It's definitely something to keep in mind," Khan said on Busted Open Radio when Tommy Dreamer pitched Steamboat wrestling in AEW. "I think it's amazing that Ricky Steamboat got back in the ring. FTR, one of the greatest tag teams on the planet. I'm excited tonight for Dax Harwood to go one on one with Bryan Danielson, two of the best pro wrestlers in the world. It's certainly something to think about, Ricky Steamboat's last match, one of my personal heroes. Somebody, as a kid, one of my all-time favorites and to this day one of my all-time favorites. I do think he was a great part of AEW already when he came in as the guest timekeeper."
Steamboat was part of the House of the Dragon episode of AEW Dynamite on August 17. He appeared in a backstage segment with Chris Jericho and served as the guest timekeeper for Danielson vs. Daniel Garcia.
"I would love to have Ricky Steamboat back in AEW any time," said Khan.
Danielson will be in action on Wednesday's AEW Dynamite when he takes on Dax Harwood in singles competition.
