Starrcade 1986

NWA Starrcade 1986: Night of the Skywalkers
November 27, 1986
Atlanta, GA & Greensboro, NC
The Omni & Greensboro Coliseum

In the Crockett/McMahon wars, this would be “the battle for who can book the better multi-location show: NWA’s second shot.” I have the commercial version so some of (if not all) the matches are clipped and some matches were cut entirely from the tape. Don’t worry though; you’re not missing any five-star classics. Together, Greensboro and Atlanta drew 30,000 fans. Since Wrestlemania had three different locations, they were able to draw 10,000 more than Starrcade. Even if you just take Wrestlemania’s two biggest draws which were LA and Long Island; you’d have a crowd of 31,000. You’re almost there, NWA. You probably should’ve booked a show in Norfolk or something.

Your hosts in Atlanta are Tony Schiavone and Rick Stewart (who?) and as for Greensboro, your hosts are Bob Caudle and Johnny Weaver! Read the rest of this entry

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
