Live Oak — WWE NXT is proud to welcome WWE Hall of Famer Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat to Live Oak on Saturday, Dec. 8. Steamboat will be signing autographs for fans prior to the night’s event.

During the 1980s and 1990s, Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat was universally recognized as one of wrestling’s most popular stars in and out of the ring. Known for his crisp movements and superior technical ability, Steamboat earned such accolades as NWA Heavyweight Champion, WCW United States Champion and WWE Intercontinental Champion among other feats. In 2009, Steamboat’s historical legacy was cemented in history with his induction into the WWE Hall of Fame. That legacy continues today through Steamboat’s son, NXT Competitor—Richie Steamboat.

The appearance of Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat is in conjunction with the WWE NXT Live Tour, which takes place at the Suwannee Coliseum in Live Oak. Bell time for the show is 7:30 p.m. VIP ticket holders will receive access to the autograph session featuring Ricky Steamboat at 6 p.m. while all other ticket levels will receive access at 6:30 p.m. Eight big matches are slated for the card, which will also see NXT Divas in action. NXT is the official developmental system for the future stars of WWE. NXT is proud to donate a portion of the show proceeds to the Florida Sheriff Youth Ranch.

Tickets range from $10 to $25 and will be available at Buddy’s Home Furnishings in Lake City (1569 W Hwy 90). Tickets and additional information are also available at
