Two Steamboats in Cincinnati

Brian Pillman was a pro wrestler who died at the age of 35. For a few years, the Pillman Memorial event was held in Cincinnati (Pillman's hometown) to raise funds for the widow Pillman and their children. Many wrestlers appeared at the event over the years.
I met Ricky Steamboat at the event in 2000 and 2001. Steamboat is a wrestling legend and a real class act. Even in his career, I don't remember him ever being a 'bad' guy.
