• On This Day In Pro Wrestling History (December 27, 1993) – WCW Starrcade 1993
On this day in Pro Wrestling history on December 27, 1993, Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling aired their annual ‘Starrcade’ event LIVE on PPV from the Independence Arena in Charlotte, North Carolina.
This 10 year Anniversary edition of Starrcade saw “The Nature Boy” Ric Flair replacing Sid Vicious as the #1 contender for the WCW World Heavyweight Champion in the PPV’S main event against Champion Big Van Vader, as well as The Boss (WWF’s Big Boss Man) replacing “The British Bulldog” Davey Boy Smith as the #1 contender for Rick Rude’s WCW International Heavyweight Championship.
While Sid was suspended after the infamous double stabbing incident with Arn Anderson, The British Bulldog got fired after knocking out a man at a bar who was making advances towards Davey’s wife.
The main event was now billed as a title vs career match, so if Flair won, he’d win the World title, but if Vader retained, Flair’s career was going to be over.
Here are the results:
Pretty Wonderful defeated 2 Cold Scorpio & Marcus Alexander Bagwell
The Shockmaster defeated Awesome Kong
WCW World Television Championship: Lord Steven Regal (c) wrestled Ricky Steamboat to a time-limit-draw
Cactus Jack & Maxx Payne defeated Tex Slazenger & Shanghai Pierce
2-out-of-3-falls – WCW United States Heavyweight Championship: Steve Austin defeated Dustin Rhodes (c)
WCW International Heavyweight Championship: Rick Rude (c) defeated The Boss
WCW World Tag Team Championship: Sting & Road Warrior Hawk defeated The Nasty Boys (c) by DQ
WCW World Heavyweight Championship: Ric Flair defeated Vader (c)
