The Starrcade live event taking place on 11/25 in Greensboro, NC may end being WWE’s biggest non-televised live event of the year.
They are doing everything possible to mix in today’s talent with names that were associated with Starrcade in the 80’s and 90’s. We had speculated that Ric Flair could be on the show if he was healthy enough to travel and it looks like his recovery is going well becuase Charlotte Flair has confirmed that her father will be appearing on the show.
During a recent interview in Barcelona, Flair told our friends at SoloWrestling.com that he would be there. She said, “I know he’s going to Starrcade, Saturday after Thanksgiving to watch me wrestle in a cage.”
This would be Flair’s first WWE appearance since being hospitalized back in August. We also know that Flair will be at the Raw 25th-anniversary show. The only legends officially announced for Raw 25 are Shawn Michaels, Kevin Nash, and The Undertaker but we also know that Flair, Bret Hart, and Mick Foley have all been booked for the show.

WWE Championship – Steel Cage Match
