Jim Ross has reported that Ricky Steamboat has been released from the hospital and is resting at a home of a relative in Tampa. He reported that Steamboat is expected to return to work in about a month.
Steamboat was hospitalized with bleeding on the brain for about three weeks, two days after a beatdown by the Nexus rookies in a Raw angle which left him with headaches and a neck injury. Whether the angle and the problem were related was denied by WWE immediately, this hasn’t stopped people questioning the timing. Steamboat was rumoured to have been lined up for a legend’s spot on John Cena’s SummerSlam team, which has now been filled by Bret Hart instead.
