Full Card For WWE's Starrcade Special Revealed

An old name from WCW's past set to wrestle.

Dustin Rhodes WCW
WWE

Hot off the heels of wheeling out Dusty Rhode's fabled WarGames match for last week's NXT TakeOver in Houston, WWE are set to host another NWA classic this evening, as Thanksgiving tradition Starrcade returns to the Greensboro Coliseum.

The event, which sadly will not be broadcast on the WWE Network, features all four SmackDown titles on the line, plus special appearances from Ric Flair, Ricky Steamboat, The Rock 'n' Roll Express, and - for some unknown reason - The Hardy Boyz.

The most notable aspect of the card set to take place in North Carolina is Goldust wrestling Dash Wilder under his former WCW ringname, Dustin Rhodes. With any luck, 'The Natural' will have his fetching red and white leather waistcoat to hand, or if not, that spangly yellow and blue eyesore of a ring jacket.

The full show's schedule is as follows:

WWE Championship

- AJ Styles vs. Jinder Mahal

SmackDown Women's Championship

- Charlotte Flair vs. Natalya

SmackDown Tag-Team Championship

- The Usos vs. The New Day vs. Shelton Benjamin & Chad Gable vs. Sami Zayn & Kevin Owens

WWE United States Championship

- Baron Corbin vs. Shinsuke Namakura

- Dolph Ziggler vs. Bobby Roode

- Dustin Rhodes vs. Dash Wilder

Check back for any relevant news from the show after the fact - and hopefully some delicious pics of Dustin's old-school attire.

Benjamin was born in 1987, and is still not dead. He variously enjoys classical music, despairing over Middlesbrough FC, and walks on the beach (albeit short - asthma, you know). He's currently trying to compile a comprehensive history of video game music, yet denies accusations that he purposefully targets niche audiences. He's often wrong about these things.
