WCW Starrcade 1993: 10th Anniversary Review

starrcade-1993-logo

Hello everyone and welcome to the Starrcade 1993 review! I’m quite excited for the main event of this show; as for the rest of the card, not so much. There are some undercard matches with some potential, but most good or great workers are saddled with inferior wrestlers. Regardless, I have hope! If last year’s show can be good with the Lethal Lottery and Battlebowl, then this show can be good too. Will it? Lets find out.

WCW Starrcade 1992: Battlebowl/ The Lethal Lottery II Review

Hello everyone and welcome to WCW Starrcade 1992 review!  I’m glad to be getting back to such a fun series with the Starrcade reviews! However, what is not so fun is the idea of another Lethal Lottery. I thought they learned their lesson the first time! Regardless, I don’t have much to say about this show. I’m mostly just looking forward to Vader vs. Flair at the next Starrcade, so lets get this review over with!

WCW Starrcade 1991: Battlebowl — The Lethal Lottery Review

Hello everyone and welcome to the Starrcade 1991 review! It’s been way too long since I’ve done one of these, but I’m back and better than ever. This show is not widely praised, but I don’t see it as widely hated as I expected. I am annoyed, though, that after two years of god-awful tournaments they haven’t learned their lesson. I guess it could be worse though. At least there is a Jushin Liger match. I’m just looking forward to Starrcade 1993’s main event and the great cruiserweight matches in my future. Anyhow, lets get this underway!

WCW Starrcade 1990: Collision Course Review

Hello everyone and welcome to my return to the Starrcade review series with the WCW Starrcade 1990: Collision Course review! This show looks quite interesting to say the least. Looking at the progress bar at the bottom of the WWE Network stream, there are no less than 12 matches and most of the matches look like they get next to no time. That does not look good when it comes to match quality, but at least I know none of the matches should be long and boring from the way this looks. Overall, I have not heard much hype for this show, but it can’t be worse that Starrcade 1989, right? Anyway, lets get on to the show!

NWA Starrcade 1989: Future Shock Review

Starrcade 1989 Logo

Hello everyone and welcome to the Starrcade 1989 review, which is the final Starrcade review of the 1980s. As we approach the halfway point, I am presented with a show that seems fairly hopeless. It is a show of two tournaments, which means all the wrestlers will be worn down from wrestling earlier in the night. Each tournament, one singles and one tag team, was round robin, where a pin or submission was worth 20 points, a countout is worth 15 points, a DQ is worth 10 points, a draw is worth 5 points, and a loss is worth 0 points. The competitors in the singles tournament are Sting, Ric Flair, Lex Luger, and The Great Muta (!!!), while the tag competitors are Doom, The Road Warriors, The Steiner Brothers, and The New Wild Samoans, who are replacing the Skyscrapers due to injury. Both tourneys have talent, but I am not confident they will be able to put on good matches consistently. Anyway, lets get on with the show!

NWA Starrcade 1988: True Gritt Review

Starrcade 88 Logo

Hello everyone and welcome to the Starrcade 1988 review! This card is freaking stacked. Every match had potential to be, at least good, and this will hopefully be a better, more consistent card than any of the prior shows. A trend in these Starrcades has been slowly moving away from a territory supercard, and, instead, having this show be solely a Jim Crockett Promotions card. That allows cards to be shorter, matches to get more time, and most subpar wrestler’s to be left out. Some matches, like Lugar vs. Flair or the Midnight Express vs. the Original Midnight Express, have the opportunity to be classics, so I hope this show doesn’t disappoint. Anyhow, let’s get this underway.

NWA Starrcade 1987: Chi-Town Heat Review

Hello everyone, and welcome to my Starrcade 1987 review! Well, this came out way later than I wanted it to. As I’ve said a million times before, I’m really busy, and these reviews take time I don’t really have. That’s why, starting in September, I’m going to use my stockpile of RMR reviews so this site has some content. I want to put out something every 2 weeks, but absolutely no promises. I will still do WWE PPV reviews every month, but Starrcade might take up to 2 months to do sometimes.

Now, about Starrcade 1987. This show seems like an odd one. There are fewer matches, and most matches are longer, which could either cause matches to have great stories, or be a boring slog. Also, most matches have talented wrestlers saddled with worse talent, and that may cause a lack of 4*+ matches. This is all speculation before watching, though, and I hope it exceeds my expectations. Anyway, on to the review!
