On Monday, WWE announced the return of Starrcade, the annual NWA/WCW pay-per-view that ran from 1983-2000. WWE Starrcade will be a special SmackDown live event held on Saturday, November 25th from the Greensboro Coliseum in North Carolina.
The main event of the first Starrcade, which was held at the Greensboro Coliseum, featured Ric Flair vs. Harley Race inside a steel cage. As an homage to the first Starrcade, WWE Starrcade will feature two steel cage matches as well as appearances by NWA legends the Rock ‘n Roll Express and Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat.
Cody and Brandi Rhodes have since reacted to the news of WWE reviving Starrcade, an event created by the late “American Dream” Dusty Rhodes. Cody has requested that WWE book his brother Goldust for the show, while Brandi took offense to the fact that WWE waited until Dusty passed before holding a Starrcade event and have yet to credit him for his contribution.
As noted earlier, WWE is reportedly considering bringing back several WCW-branded PPV events (More Details).
If you're afraid an event won't sell cuz' the holiday and want one of my Dad's events…at least book Goldy..

Starrcade was created and delivered by Dusty Rhodes. WWE didn't want to do it while he was here. Now they want to do it and not give credit? pic.twitter.com/5ZLsoptjHE
