On Monday, the Greensboro Coliseum announced that the WWE live event scheduled in their venue on Saturday, November 25th will feature a “Starrcade” theme.
The show will mark the first time the old WCW WrestleMania-equivilant show has been used since 2000. There is no word yet as to whether or not the show will air live as part of a WWE Network special.
Featured below is the complete announcement regarding the WWE Starrcade event on 11/25 at the Greensboro Coliseum:
Starrcade returns to Greensboro this November
Starrcade is back, and for the first time in 30 years, it’s coming home.
On Saturday, Nov. 25, during Thanksgiving weekend, Starrcade returns when the Superstars of SmackDown LIVE descend on Greensboro, N.C., for a historic event at the Greensboro Coliseum.
The premier event of the National Wrestling Alliance and, later, WCW, Starrcade got its start in Greensboro on Thanksgiving 1983 with a star-studded lineup that saw Ric Flair defeat Harley Race to win his second of 16 World Championships. Starrcade remained in Greensboro through 1986 and was the stage on which legendary performers like Dusty Rhodes, The Four Horsemen, Magnum TA, The Rock ‘n’ Roll Express and many more etched their names into sports-entertainment history.
As the calendar turned to the 1990s, a new generation of competitors emerged to take the Starrcade spotlight, like Sting, Vader and the nWo. The last edition of Starrcade under the WCW banner took place in December 2000.
Now, fans in Greensboro will get the opportunity to be a part of history, as Starrcade returns with an absolutely stacked card featuring two Steel Cage Matches. Matches announced* for the return of Starrcade include:
WWE Championship Steel Cage Match
– Jinder Mahal vs. Shinsuke Nakamura
SmackDown Women’s Championship Steel Cage Match

United States Championship Triple Threat Match
– AJ Styles vs. Baron Corbin vs. Rusev
SmackDown Tag Team Championship Texas Tornado Match
