ORIGINAL: It’s been about a week since WWE announced plans to run Starrcade in Greensboro, NC on 11/25 and it looks like this show will have more buzz than any other non-televised event in years.
So naturally, wrestlers that are not booked for the show are going to issue challenges because who wouldn’t want to be booked on a Starrcade show? Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson have thrown down the challenge and they want to face The Rock ‘n’ Roll Express.
We @LukeGallowsWWE , want the Rock N Roll Express at Starcade….

I hope this match takes place. It would not take much to make it happen because the Rock ‘n’ Roll Express were already scheduled to appear and they can still go in the ring. Previously, Matt Hardy suggested a Hardy Boyz vs. Goldust and Cody Rhodes match but that can’t happen because Jeff is injured and Rhodes has signed an exclusive deal with Ring Of Honor.
So far, WWE has announced the following for Starrcade:
Jinder Mahal will defend the WWE Championship against Shinsuke Nakamura inside of a steel cage
Natalya will defend the Smackdown Women’s Championship against Charlotte Flair
AJ Styles will defend the United States Championship against Baron Corbin and RUsev in a Triple Threat Match
The New Day will defend the Smackdown Tag Team Championship against The Usos in a Texas Tornado Match
Sami Zayn will face Kevin Owens in a grudge match
Bobby Roode will take on Dolph Ziggler
Also, The Rock ‘n’ Roll Express, The Hardy Boyz, and Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat are scheduled to appear.
