-- In an interview from ESPN.com, in promotion for the WWE All-Stars Video game, Ricky Steamboat talked about a number of things, including why he never turned heel. When he asked to turn, the reply was no. He also touched on the feuds with Randy savage and Chris Jericho, as well as competing in long matches. Read the whole interview at espn.go.com. Steamboat said: "I like to listen to the crowd, I really do. The crowd helps give me that extra boost of adrenaline. When I take a moment and listen to the wrestling fans and they're shouting, "C'mon Ricky, you can do it!" It helps me in my heart to know that there are people out there who paid good money to watch guys like us go out there and perform. The fans have always played a major role for me and have helped me do what I need to do in the ring. Ultimately, when you dig down deep, if you did it to a silent movie, I know I wouldn't have the same response as when I have thousands of people cheering. The fans can bring a better match by getting more involved. So when a match is over, they might be talking about how good the match was, but little do they know, that great match was elevated because of them. They're helping me out. Look at Wrestlemania III. You had 93,000 fans screaming. That's probably a major reason why that match turned out so good."

I kind of miss those days. I think a lot of our fans miss those days."
