5. Reason Behind WWE Bringing Back Starrcade

As we noted before, WWE is bringing back Starrcade as a SmackDown Live exclusive Live Event later this year. It will feature two Steel Cage Title matches – Jinder Mahal vs. Shinsuke Nakamura for the WWE Champion and Natalya vs. Charlotte Flair for the SmackDown Women’s Championship. Below is what WWE posted about this:

“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.”

Wrestling Observer is reporting that WWE is using the “Starrcade” name to help counter ticket sales from a Wrestling Legends event in the same area that weekend. Below is the complete match-card (which is subject to change due to Title changes, injuries, etc) for this Starrcade event:

– Steel Cage Match For The WWE Championship: Jinder Mahal (c) vs. Shinsuke Nakamura

– Steel Cage Match For The SmackDown Women’s Championship: Natalya (c) vs. Charlotte Flair

– United States Championship Match: AJ Styles (c) vs. Baron Corbin vs. Rusev

– Texas Tornado Match For The SmackDown Tag Team Championship: The New Day (c) vs. The Usos

– Kevin Owens vs. Sami Zayn

– Bobby Roode vs. Dolph Ziggler

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!
