LAST WEEK: The Beach Bullies (Alex Porteau & Shawn Summers) were about to lose to John Tatum and Rod Price when Summers got his team DQ’ed by spraying Price in the eyes with a Super Soaker. That’s the most 90s thing I’ve seen in a long time. If Summers was REALLY a good bully, that Super Soaker would have been filled with bleach.

Your host is David Webb. Chaz stops by to tell us he’ll be wrestling Steven Dane on the program. Once Chaz tells us he will give his all in that match, Webb runs down the rest of the card for today.

The best of Bill Watts’ UWF and Jim Crockett Promotions come together to compete in a day long 24-tag team tournament with a grand prize of a million dollars! Oh yeah, and to honor the late Jim Crockett Sr. too, of course. It’s wrestling history, BAYBEE!

Starrcade 1985

NWA Starrcade ’85: The Gathering
November 28, 1985
Atlanta, GA & Greensboro, NC
The Omni & Greensboro Coliseum

This is the original show that gave Vince the idea to book a “multi-location” show, except Vince had to one-up Crockett and book his WrestleMania in three different venues ALL over the country. The tape I have starts out in G-boro and then switches back and forth between cities until we reach Flair/Rhodes in ATL, which I can only assume is how it was presented on CCTV.

Your hosts are Tony Schiavone and Bob Caudle, with Johnny Weaver conducting interviews in Greensboro. Shame the man couldn’t be in two places at once, because I would love for a good old school Ric Flair promo to be on here. Read the rest of this entry
