Welcome to's coverage of WWE Starrcade, live from the Greensboro Coliseum!


They have Starrcade ring aprons, but beyond that it's the typical house show production and crew.  No TV level lighting rig.  No steel cage hanging above the ring, so they will have to take an intermission to set them up.

They produced two shirts for the event. One that shows the current card and another that is a B&W throwback shirt to Starrcade '83 featuring Harley Race and Ric Flair on the front and a Starrcade '83 logo on the back.

They are also selling a throwback poster featuring Harley Race vs. Ric Flair from 1983's Starrcade.


Lots of nostalgia in the videos playing before the matches, including a shout out to Dusty Rhodes for creating Starrcade.
