    I saw that, but they've already announced the matches for it in advance and it's on a Saturday so I'm pretty sure it's just a glorified house show.

    Yeah I reckon it might be a Network Special though. Here's what WWE.com has.

    Starrcade is back, and for the first time in 30 years, it’s coming home.

    On Saturday, Nov. 25, during Thanksgiving weekend, Starrcade returns when the Superstars of SmackDown LIVE descend on Greensboro, N.C., for a historic event at the Greensboro Coliseum.

    The premier event of the National Wrestling Alliance and, later, WCW, Starrcade got its start in Greensboro on Thanksgiving 1983 with a star-studded lineup that saw Ric Flair defeat Harley Race to win his second of 16 World Championships. Starrcade remained in Greensboro through 1986 and was the stage on which legendary performers like Dusty Rhodes, The Four Horsemen, Magnum TA, The Rock ‘n’ Roll Express and many more etched their names into sports-entertainment history.

    As the calendar turned to the 1990s, a new generation of competitors emerged to take the Starrcade spotlight, like Sting, Vader and the nWo. The last edition of Starrcade under the WCW banner took place in December 2000.

    Now, fans in Greensboro will get the opportunity to be a part of history, as Starrcade returns with an absolutely stacked card featuring two Steel Cage Matches. Matches announced* for the return of Starrcade include:

    WWE Championship Steel Cage Match
    Jinder Mahal vs. Shinsuke Nakamura

    SmackDown Women’s Championship Steel Cage Match
    Natalya vs. Charlotte Flair

    United States Championship Triple Threat Match
    AJ Styles vs. Baron Corbin vs. Rusev

    SmackDown Tag Team Championship Texas Tornado Match
    The New Day vs. The Usos

    Sami Zayn vs. Kevin Owens

    Bobby Roode vs. Dolph Ziggler

    Breezango vs Aiden English & Mike Kanellis w/ Maria Kanellis

    The Hardy Boyz are also confirmed to appear at Starrcade in their home state of North Carolina, as are WWE Hall of Famers and Starrcade legends Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat and The Rock ‘n’ Roll Express!

    Tickets for Starrcade will be available starting Friday, Sept. 29, at 10 a.m. ET at Ticketmaster. Don’t miss your chance to be a part of history as Starrcade returns!

    Jinder and Nakamura are gonna feud for ANOTHER two months? gaaaaaah.

    Ziggler and Roode having a program actually sounds very logical given the nature of Ziggler's promos.

    Order might have the right idea seeing the date of the show and all. I look forward to what the look of the Ring, Ropes, and Turnbuckles for this Show and if it's going to look like. Please take the title away from Mahal.

    That card doesn't look very attractive at all.

I can honestly say that I have never had anything I would call a bad blowjob, that wasn't a great experience but up until I started gushing blood I was having a great time!

    I think that would be a pretty solid feud

    When I think of Starrcade, I think Flair, Sting, and any other big-time name.

    Basically, the WCW equivalent of Wrestlemania.

    This will only be Starrcade in NAME ONLY considering it's only consisting of Smackdown performers and let's face it....the Depth on that roster isn't exactly solid.

    If only WCW acted as if Starrcade was their Wrestlemania.

    Not sure about the two steel cage matches. Wouldn't that kind of dilute the match. Especially one after the other.

    Please don't tell me, Jindar vs Nakamura will go on for another two months.

    I can't get into those cage matches without some kind of brutality in it, otherwise it feels a bit off. Surely it won't bar the competitors from having a good match but a personal preference... Pretty standard card IMO.

    It was. Compare any Starrcade to what this so-called Sham of a Starrcade(in name only). Not even close.

    This thrown together event looks a hell of a lot better than the vast majority of WCW era Starrcades. WCW nearly always did a shit job at making Starrcade feel like the biggest show of the year. Especially in the Bischoff years, shows like Superbrawl and Bash at the Beach got a bigger emphasis than Starrcade.
