It’s not just Dusty Rhodes concepts and brand names WWE is mining from their Jim Crockett Promotions archive. Looks like they’ve also enlisted longtime JCP/WCW announcer Tony Schiavone to promote the Nov. 25 Starrcade event in Greensboro, North Carolina. As far as we know, it’s still just a loaded house show, but that hasn’t prevented them from pulling out some pretty cool stops to sell this bad boy.

Here’s Schiavone delivering an old school WCW “Control Center” rundown of the card:


  • Jinder Mahal (c) vs. Shinsuke Nakamura in a Steel Cage match for the WWE title
  • Natalya (c) vs. Charlotte Flair in a Steel Cage match for the SmackDown Women’s championship
  • AJ Styles vs. Baron Corbin (c) vs. Rusev in a Triple Threat for the United States title
  • The New Day vs. The Usos (c) in a Texas Tornado match for the SmackDown Tag Team championship
  • Sami Zayn vs. Kevin Owens
  • Bobby Roode vs. Dolph Ziggler
  • Breezango vs Aiden English & Mike Kanellis w/ Maria Kanellis
  • The Rock ‘n’ Roll Express vs. Gallows & Anderson

Also scheduled to appear: The Hardy Boyz, Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat and The Rock ‘n’ Roll Express
