When people first heard Starrcade was coming back they were very excited. This Thanksgiving tradition dates back decades but wasn’t seen since WWE bought out WCW.
But WWE brought a huge Starrcade show to the Greensboro Coliseum on November 25th last year and everyone loved it who was lucky enough to attend. After all, for some strange reason, the show wasn’t on the WWE Network in spite of such a strong fan demand.
It looks like this event might have been a one-off because as The Wrestling Observer Newsletter mentioned when talking about the massive restraining order WWE is putting in place which will stand for all upcoming big shows, Starrcade doesn’t appear to be on the list.
It is noted that it is not clear at this point whether WWE will hold another Starrcade event during Thanksgiving weekend in the Carolinas because the list which included all big upcoming WWE shows didn’t indicate a show happening around Thanksgiving or WrestleCade. So perhaps this one-time revival might have taken place just because WWE realized they had an event in North Carolina on November 25th anyway and they needed to get fans from WrestleCade. For whatever reason, let’s hope they keep this concept alive because there is a lot of history attached the Starrcade name.
