Starrcade 1990

NWA Starrcade 1990: Collision Course
December 16, 1990
St. Louis, MO
Kiel Auditorium

The current NWA Champs were as follows:
World Champion: Sting (7/7/1990)
U.S. Champion: Stan Hansen (10/27/1990)
World Tag Team Champions: Doom (5/19/1990)
U.S. Tag Team Champions: Rick & Scott Steiner (8/24/1990)
World Television Champion: Arn Anderson (1/2/1990)

The WWF pushes Sgt. Slaughter as this evil Iraqi sympathizer who hangs out with Saddam Hussein ALL of course to make money, while the NWA didn’t see dollar signs when they thought about something as terrible as war. Instead, they simply send a feed of their show to the boys who are putting their lives on the line in Operation Desert Storm. Although they probably just taped it and watched it later because of the HUGE time difference, it was still a nice gesture by Turner. Also on the show, we have the Paul O’Connor Memorial tag tournament. Pat O’Connor was a former NWA World Champion from New Zealand who had recently died. This was the NWA’s way to pay homage to the former champ; by bringing in tag teams from all over the world. Man, the NWA is being all kinds of nice on this show!
