• On This Day In Pro Wrestling History (November 27, 1986) – NWA Starrcade 1986: The Skywalkers
On this day in Pro Wrestling history on November 27, 1986, Jim Crockett Promotions aired ‘NWA Starrcade 1986: The Skywalkers’ LIVE on closed-circuit television from the Greensboro Coliseum in Greensboro, North Carolina, and The Omni in Atlanta, Georgia.
This was the 4th out of 18 annual ‘Starrcade’ events that aired between 1983 and 2000.
The first 5 Starrcades (1983-1987) were promoted by Jim Crockett Promotions, while Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling (who bought JCP in 1988) promoted all the ones that followed (1988-2000).
According to several reports, Magnum T.A. was already booked to win the NWA World Heavyweight Championship from Flair that night, but unfortunately had to end his career after a car accident a month before the show.
As a result he was replaced with Nikita Koloff in the main event.
Most Professional Wrestling historians agree that, had it not been for Magnum’s accident, he could had quite possibly become the NWA version of Hulk Hogan. Just imagine, JCP not being forced to sell to Turner, … Oh well, a man can still dream about a “What If” scenario, right?
The results are here:
Tim Horner & Nelson Royal def. Rocky & Don Kernodle
Brad Armstrong vs Jimmy Garvin ended in a draw
Hector Guerrero & Baron von Raschke def. Shaska Whatley & The Barbarian
No DQ – NWA United States Tag Team Championship: Krusher Khruschev and Ivan Koloff (c) def. Bobby Jaggers and Dutch Mantell
Indian Strap: Wahoo McDaniel def. Rick Rude
NWA Central States Heavyweight Championship: Sam Houston (c) def. Bill Dundee by DQ
Hair versus Hair match: Jimmy Valiant def. Paul Jones
Street Fight: Big Bubba Rogers def. Ron Garvin
First Blood – NWA World Television Championship: Tully Blanchard def. Dusty Rhodes (c)
Skywalkers match: The Road Warriors def. The Midnight Express
Steel Cage – NWA World Tag Team Championship: The Rock ‘n’ Roll Express (c) def. The Anderson Brothers
NWA World Heavyweight Championship: Ric Flair (c) vs Nikita Koloff ended in a double DQ

A fan brought this to Charly’s attention and below is what Charly posted:
“I feel very bad for Mary Anne.”
