• Sting Claims AEW Tag Team Is As Good As The Brain Busters
During a recent interview with Sports Illustrated, Old School WCW Legend Sting talked about current AEW Tag Team FTR (fka The Revival in WWE) and compared them to the legendary NWA/WWF Tag Team of Tully Blanchard & Arn Anderson.
Here’s what Sting said:
“FTR, they are a modern-day Arn and Tully. They are as good as it gets. I put them up there with anyone, and they are one of the best tag teams in the world.
When you’re in the ring with them, it’s game on. There’s no playing around, especially the pace they can go, and I saw that firsthand when we wrestled.”
You can watch Sting competing with FTR below:
Arn Anderson & Tully Blanchard were both founding members of the legendary Four Horsemen faction in early 1986 and teamed up until Ted Turner bought Jim Crockett Promotions (NWA) in the fall of 1988.
After that, they jumped ship to the World Wrestling Federation, where they were known as The Brain Busters, managed by none other than Bobby ‘The Brain’ Heenan.
Tully Blanchard is the manager of FTR in All Elite Wrestling. Arn Anderson is also in AEW, but he manages Cody Rhodes.

• 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 his 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)
