WHW #97: Starrcade 1983

3년 전

This is the one that has "stood the test of time." The very first Starrcade from Thanksgiving night 1983. It was before WrestleMania and became the flagship event of Jim Crockett Promotions and then WCW. It was not a Pay Per View event but was broadcast via closed circuit to many arenas in the then Mid-Atlantic area.

Ric Flair vs Harley Race was the featured event, but the event had so much more. Including Roddy Piper and Greg Valentine in a Dog Collar Match; Gordon Solie and Bob Caudle on commentary, Abdullah the Butcher, Ricky Steamboat, the Brisco Brothers, Wahoo McDaniel; and then somewhere backstage a young, green Tony Schiavone.

It was also the beginning of the run by Dusty Rhodes as booker of Jim Crockett Promotions.

You like blood? You like realism? You like vintage pro wrestling? Then, you'll LOVE Starrcade '83
