WWE Plans Starrcade Event For WWE Network

An announcement is expected later today

For the third consecutive year WWE is expected to bring back NWA/WCW's flagship pay-per-view Starrcade. According to Dave Melzer of Wrestling Observer, the plan is for the show to once again be a Network special - broadcasting on Saturday, November 30th.

Starrcade was NWA and WCW's big end-of-year pay-per-view that saw the biggest rivalries come to a head. Despite the historical significance, WWE's reprisal of the show has been far less grand in comparison.

Starrcade officially premiered under the WWE banner in 2017, emanating from the Greensboro Coliseum. It was an untelevised event featuring appearances by Ricky 'The Dragon' Steamboat and The Rock and Roll Express, with AJ Styles defending his WWE Championship against Jinder Mahal in the main event.

The following year's offering from Cincinatti, Ohio, saw just four of the eleven matches shown on the WWE Network. The show featured a guest appearance by Ric Flair and a Steel Cage match between Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose.

Whether WWE will utilise the legacy of Starrcade and make the show bigger this time around is yet to be seen. An official announcement, according to Meltzer, is due from WWE later today.
