Ricky "The Dragon" Steamboat vs. Chris Jericho

At the 25th Anniversary of WrestleMania, Chris Jericho battled WWE Hall of Famers Roddy Piper, Jimmy Snuka and Ricky Steamboat in a Handicap Elimination Match. As the bout raged on, Y2J eliminated Piper and Snuka but had a difficult time removing “The Dragon” from the equation. While certainly past his prime, Steamboat proved age was not a detriment and performed many of signature maneuvers. However, Jericho was ultimately successful.

At Backlash the following month, Jericho and Steamboat locked up one-on-one as the WWE Hall of Famer believed he still had the clout to defeat WWE’s first-ever Undisputed Champion. In his first singles match since 1994, Steamboat proved he still had “it.” Displaying the same agility and technical skill he used in mat classics against Ric Flair and Randy Savage, The Dragon pushed Jericho to the limit before submitting to the Walls of Jericho.
