Earlier we referenced the tweets on social media between Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson and The Rock ‘n’ Roll Express. The challenge was issued by Gallows and Anderson and later accepted and now the match is official.
As of today, there is still no word on if this show will air on the WWE Network but I bet they are considering the idea because this is the most buzzworthy live event in a long time. If they do air it on the network then I would not expect them to announce anything until after the Hell in a Cell pay-per-view.
Here is the updated card for the show:
WWE Championship – Steel Cage Match
Jinder Mahal (Champion) vs. Shinsuke Nakamura
Smackdown Women’s Championship – Steel Cage Match
Natalya (Champion) vs. Charlotte Flair
Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson vs. The Rock ‘n’ Roll Express
United States Championship – Triple Threat Match
AJ Styles (Champion) vs. Baron Corbin vs. Rusev
Smackdown Tag Team Championship – Texas Tornado Match
The New Day (Champion) vs. The Usos
Sami Zayn vs. Kevin Owens
Bobby Roode vs. Dolph Ziggler
Breezango vs. Aiden English and Mike Kanellis
Also scheduled to appear: The Hardy Boyz and Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat
The Rock ‘n’ Roll Express were previously announced as special guests so it makes sense to include them in a match. I hope if he is healthy to travel, that Ric Flair will be among the guests at the show.
We will pass along more updates on Starrcade as they become available.
