WWE To Bring Back Former WCW Super Show?

WWE To Bring Back Former WCW Super Show?

It has come to light that WWE filed a trademark on the name Starrcade on July 17.

As of yet, it’s unknown whether the company plan to reinstate the event, however, they did use the name for a special house show event in December 2017 in Greensboro, North Carolina, which featured appearances by stars from the show’s history. The New Day also twerked with the Rock N’ Roll Express and the Hardy Boyz. Results from that showing are as follows:

  • Bobby Roode rolled over Dolph Ziggler
  • Rusev, the Bludgeon Brothers, the Colons, and Mike Kanellis cracked Breezango, the Ascension, Tye Dillinger, and Sin Cara
  • Naomi beat Tamina
  • The ‘Natural’ Dustin Rhodes best Dash Wilder
  • Shinsuke Nakamura did away with Baron Corbin
  • The Usos outlasted the New Day, Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn, and Chad Gable and Shelton Benjamin to retain the SmackDown Live Tag Team Championships
  • Charlotte survived Natalya in a Steel Cage Match to retain the SmackDown Live Women’s Championship
  • AJ Styles ran through Jinder Mahal in a Steel Cage Match to retain the WWE Championship

With three months until the company obtains the trademark, the event won’t return this year if at all.

Starrcade was originally the brainchild of Jim Crockett Promotions and began all the way back in 1983 before passing to WCW. Since then, main events have included Ric Flair vs. Dusty Rhodes (1984), Ric Flair vs. Sting (1989), Randy Savage vs. Ric Flair (1995), the hideous ‘Hollywood’ Hulk Hogan vs. Sting debacle (1997), and Bret Hart vs. Goldberg (1999).
