The Spotlight On WWE Bringing Back Starrcade

Big news out of WWE today as it was announced that WWE will be reviving Starrcade, WCW’s flagship event, as it will be returning to the Greensboro Coliseum on Saturday Night, November th 25th, 2017. The event will take place just 6 days after WWE Survivor Series which will now be a huge week for the company.  
For those who don’t know, Starrcade was in many ways Wrestlemania before there was Wrestlemania, it was the biggest annual show for World Championship Wrestling that took place from 1983 until 2000. The first three Starrcade events took place at this historic Greensboro Coliseum, the site of the revived Starrcade Event later this year. 
The card has already been released for the event so far being headlined by 2 Steel Cage matches for both to World Championship and the Womens Championship. The Card is as follow
WWE Championship Steel Cage Match- Jinder Mahal (c) vs. Shinsuke Nakamura

WWE Smackdown Womens Championship Steel Cage Match- Natalya (c) vs. Charlotte Flair

WWE United States Champonship Triple Threat Match- AJ Styles (c) vs. Rusev vs. Baron Crobin

WWE Tag Team Championship Match- The New Day (c) vs. The Usos

Grudge Match- Kevin Owens vs. Sami Zayn

Bobby Roode vs. Dolph Ziggler

The Fashion Police Vs. Mike Kanellis & Aiden English
Plus Appearances By: The Hardy Boyz, Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat, The Rock N Roll Express & More.  
The story for this show is clearly Charlotte Flair. On all of the promotional material from the Greensboro Coliseum she is being heralded as “North Carolina’s Own”. Thus, it would make sense and be quite the story for the Women to go on last and have Charlotte main event the event in which he father, WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair, main evented the first ever Starrcade at the same arena.  
This is purely speculation but this would also be the perfect time for Ric Flair to make his return to the company following at health scare. Flair is synonymous with Starrcade, having main evented the first 8 events and is also originally from North Carolina, where he still has a big presence to date. It would be quite the moment to have the show close by having Charlotte Flair win the womens championship and having Ric to return to present her with the belt.  
While this is great for long time fans, especially those former WCW fans clamoring for the return of some of their favorite WCW events like War Games, World War 3 and the aforementioned Starrcade, we should probably hold off on getting too excited. While the event is confirmed and will be a great night, it unfortunately has not yet been promoted as anything more than a live event, meaning that unless you’re their live you may not be able to see the event. That being said, it’s still early and you would hope that if WWE is spending the time and effort to bring back Starrcade, especially by bringing in the legends, that it would be aired as a network special. Regardless it’ll be great to have WWE back during Thanksgiving weekend and it’ll be great to see the return of Starrcade!
