WWE To Bring Back WCW's Halloween Havoc & Starrcade PPVs?

Is the giant pumpkin set for a comeback?

Halloween Havoc

It's being reported by BarnBurner's Brad Shepard that as part of a major pay-per-view shake-up for WWE, the company are looking into replacing current PPVs with classic WCW names, and Starrcade & Halloween Havoc are leading contenders.

As reported yesterday, amendments have been made to the 2018 schedule of pay-per-views, with TLC being moved to December to accommodate WWE's Super Show-Down in Australia this October, and Clash of Champions seemingly nixed as a result.

Halloween Havoc was hugely popular for WCW, running from 1989 through to 2000, and Starrcade (WCW's version of WrestleMania) lasted from 1983 to 2000 and was even used by WWE in November last year for a one-off live event for SmackDown.

Despite all pay-per-views now being dual-branded and therefore a reduction in how many WWE will put on this year, one has to assume that the nostalgia associated with these infamous WCW shows would put them ahead in the pecking order of the disappointing Battleground and questionably-named Great Balls of Fire.

Although a final decision has not yet been made, the idea is under consideration and Shepard reported that his source:-

"...specifically mentioned Halloween Havoc and Starrcade as possible names to replace current pay-per-views."
