Possible reason why WWE brought back Starrcade name

As we noted before WWE announced that they will be using the name of WCW’s WrestleMania equivalent Starrcade for a Live Event in Greensboro, N.C on November 25.

The company has announced that it will be a SmackDown Brand Live event featuring many big matches including two steel cage championship matches and more.

While this was an exciting news for fans, it also made them wonder why the company is bringing back the popular PPV name for a Live Event after so many years.

During the latest episode of Wrestling Observer Live, Bryan Alvarez talked about the return of the PPV name and indicated that the company brought it back to help counter ticket sale from a legends event which will be held in the area during the same weekend.

Bryan also revealed that the show will not be aired on WWE Network as speculated by many and it would only be a standard Live Event.

    Right but my point is this was WCW’s staple PPV don’t just bring the name back for a house show. They could have used a million other previous names or a new name

  • Arnold Jackson

    GAB and Clash have each been brought back in some form or another by the WWE. Got to admit though I did always enjoy Halloween Havoc, the others weren’t really worth saving.

  • Arnold Jackson

    I do like the Chamber and MITB though.

  • Sparti Love

    I wish they would eliminate the stupid match type PPVs (e.g. Hell in the Cell, Money in the Bank, Elimination Chamber).

  • Nicholas Giambattista

    So this is just a House Show.

  • then why bring it back if they not gonna air it? seems stupid to me
