Before the program, we see a past interview where the TV champ Steve Austin calls Ricky Steamboat yellow for ducking a title shot because he was home nursing some hurt ribs. Therefore, no more title shots for Ricky Steamboat. Well, Steamboat rips off his Ralph Lauren polo to reveal taped ribs. That proves everything!

Starrcade 1991

WCW Starrcade 1991: Battlebowl – The Lethal Lottery
December 29, 1991
Norfolk, VA
The Scope

The current WCW Champs were as follows:
World Champion: Lex Luger (7/14/1991)
U.S. Champion: Rick Rude (11/19/1991)
World Television Champion: Steve Austin (6/3/1991)
World Light Heavyweight Champion: Jushin Liger (12/25/1991)
World Tag Team Champions: Ricky Steamboat & Dustin Rhodes (11/19/1991)
U.S. Tag Team Champions: The Young Pistols (11/5/1991)

This is the debut of Dusty Rhodes latest project known as Battlebowl: The Lethal Lottery. The concept is simple; forty guys have their names put into a spinning bingo-like container. Each name is drawn out of the container by Eric Bischoff, Missy Hyatt and Magnum TA until there are collectively twenty random tag teams. Why does it take three people to draw out names? I have no idea. Anyways, these teams face off in the order their names were drawn and the winners of those matches are entered in a two-ring battle royal known as Battlebowl. Winner gets a Battlebowl ring. Kind of like earning a Super Bowl ring, but WAY less prestigious since who wins is already decided.

Your hosts are Jim Ross & Tony Schiavone. I think I saw Jim Herd in the front row with a Magnum TA shirt on. He’s like the very first person you see. Read the rest of this entry
