Hello and welcome to another edition
of Seanomaniac Wrestling Reviews, the only wrestling review series on the
internet that is still wondering where is Elias? It’s time for WCW Starrcade
1988: True Gritt! What a PPV tagline right? Well we have all been talking about
the big one, the night where WCW puts everything on the line. Headlined by Lex
Luger challenging Ric Flair for the WCW World Heavyweight Championship, we also
have The Midnight Express taking on The Original Midnight Express, The Fantastics
defend their tag team championships against The Varsity Club, Rick Steiner goes
after Mike Rotunda and Ivan Koloff continues his feud with Paul Jones and his
States Tag Team Championship Match) The Fantastics © vs Kevin Sullivan &
Dr. Death Steve Williams
Turning Williams heel will never make
sense to me but whatever WCW you do you. The Fantastics were going to face The
Sheepherders to recapture that magic from their feud years earlier but The
Sheepherders are now The Bushwhackers in the WWF so sucks for them. Sullivan’s
feud with Precious seems to be long forgotten too, not too sure what happened
there but disappointing for sure. Covering up Williams’ massive body with a
singlet is just foolish but this should be decent if Williams throws around
Rogers for five to ten minutes.
Sullivan and Fulton start, chops from
Sullivan. Clubbing blows and an Irish whip, Fulton kicks off Sullivan and lands
a diving Lou Thesz press for two. Lock-up and Sullivan sends Fulton to the corner
but Fulton fights back, massive right to the head and in comes Rogers. Back
body-drop, tag to Fulton. Right hand and side headlock from Fulton, Sullivan
backs into Doc. Williams and Rogers trade arm-bars before Rogers lures in
Williams. Fulton works the arm, Fulton sends Williams to the buckle. Williams
reverses but misses the corner attack, double monkey flip from the champions.
Williams dodges a monkey flip and military presses Fulton to the mat. Massive
clothesline from Williams, Fulton takes a breather. The champions land a
dropkick on Williams before Williams drops Fulton with a belly to back suplex.
Fulton tags Rogers, dropkick does not
work on Williams. Double clothesline almost beheads Rogers, Sullivan misses a
clothesline and ends up on the floor. Shoulder block from Rogers, dropkick too.
Sullivan begs for mercy, they lock-up and Rogers is cornered. Noggin-knocker on
Williams, double gut-shot to Sullivan. Williams eats a back body-drop, Williams
shakes it off and wipes out Rogers. Sullivan lands a cheap-shot on Rogers,
Williams stomps all over Rogers. Delayed vertical suplex from Williams for two,
Sullivan attacks Fulton which allows Williams to drill Rogers. Small package
from Rogers for two, flying crossbody for two. Sullivan can only watch as Rogers
tags in Fulton who eats the knee of Williams who tags in officially.
Right hand from Williams staggers
Fulton, bearhug from Williams. Williams has to break the hold as Fulton thumbs
the eye, in comes Rogers against Sullivan. Rogers runs into the foot of
Sullivan, Sullivan is knocked off the top rope by Rogers. Sullivan blocks the
splash with two boots to the ribs, tag to Williams. Short-arm clothesline,
Sullivan comes in and lands a clothesline on Rogers but Fulton breaks it up.
Rear chin-lock from Sullivan, Rogers breaks free but eats a knee to the gut. In
comes Williams and drops a leg on the neck of Rogers, drop onto the top rope
from Williams. Headbutt for good measure, two for Williams. Rear chin-lock from
Williams, Rogers comes up and battles back against Williams. Dropkick on
Williams but Williams tags in Sullivan who double-stomps on Rogers.
Two for Sullivan, Rogers blocks the
suplex and drills Sullivan. Fulton wants in bad, Fulton gets the tag and kicks
Williams in the face. Back body-drop on Williams, the match is breaking down.
Right hands stagger Williams, ten punches in the corner. Fulton dodges the
inverted atomic drop, clothesline from Fulton. Rogers comes in for a sleeper,
Williams counters a Thesz press for a hot-shot/stun-gun and this match is over
as Williams pins Fulton.
Decent tag team match, I am an easy
man to please and what I want is Steve Williams uses his size to slaughter
people. For whatever reason, Williams is hardly dropping people like flies, no
idea why they won’t let Williams kill people but certainly what I wanted to see
in this match. Fantastics weren’t as over as you would think here, crowd was
not as kind to them as before which they needed to carry this match. Sadly, it
was alright at the end of the day.

The AWA and battered The Midnight Express, Cornette was left bloody by the

Rose & Condrey. Lane and Condrey start officially, Condrey gets smacked to

cheap-shot from Lane. Lane snaps and attacks Condrey, Rose comes in for a
middle rope clothesline. Condrey chokes Eaton from the apron, Rose drops his
weight on the neck of Eaton. Eaton is sent to the floor, stomps from Condrey
who is tagged in by Rose. Condrey keeps working the ribs, powerslam into The
Rocket Launcher but Rose misses the splash.
In comes Lane who kicks everyone in
sight, noggin-knocker and Lane is feeling it now. Double kicks and an enzuigiri
to the back of the head. Eaton and Condrey are brawling, Dangerously cracks
Lane in the head with the phone. Cornette decks Dangerously, referee Teddy Long
does not count the three as he sees the phone. High and low combination from
Eaton & Lane, The Midnight Express win this match but The Original Express
attack Stan Lane and Jim Cornette after the bell. Bobby Eaton saves the day but
the damage is done!
Good tag team wrestling match here,
night and day difference between this match and the first tag team match. Loved
Condrey’s attacks on Eaton, you could feel the hatred and the attacks were so
simple, repeated stomps and knees to the ribs. Condrey knew what he was doing
in this match and it was great stuff, finish is a little wonky for my tastes
but nonetheless, it leaves it open to rematches and I am all for that.

& Ivan Koloff vs The Russian Assassins W/ Paul Jones
If Ivan Koloff & Junkyard Dog win,
the Assassins must unmask and Paul Jones must retire so this is high stakes
right here. Originally, we were meant to have The Koloffs reunite to take down
The Russian Assassins but it was not meant to be, I have a few concerns about
this one because I don’t think The Assassins are going to be able to hide the
weaknesses of the two men in the ring across from them.
JYD and Assassin 1 fight it out, JYD
sends Assassin 1 into the buckle. Clothesline by JYD for two, JYD drills
Assassin 1 with a big right hand to the floor. Two for JYD as Paul Jones
continues to save his team, headbutt from JYD. Koloff is tagged in, elbows and
stomps. Choking from Koloff, Russian Hammer from Koloff. Clubbing blows,
eye-rake from Assassin 2. Koloff comes back with a middle rope clothesline,
Assassin 1 comes back into the match. Clubbing blows by Koloff, elbow too.
Assassin 1 is caught with a sunset flip, Assassin 2 distracts the referee to
stop the pin-fall. JYD comes in, double clothesline. Snap-mare but JYD misses
the falling headbutt.
Assassin 1 rakes the eyes and goes to
work, side headlock and tag to Assassin 2 who decks JYD with a right hand.
Koloff is distracted, Assassin 2 axe handles Assassin 1 by mistake. Assassin 2
comes in and drills JYD with big right hands in the corner. Russian Missile
misses with JYD dodges, JYD tags in Koloff who hammers everyone. The Assassins
collide in the middle of the ring, brawling in the ring now. Russian Sickle
wipes out Assassin 2, Assassin 1 has something put in his mask by Paul Jones,
Assassin 1 cracks Koloff with a headbutt and they steal the win.
Well that was as bad as I thought it
was, nothing redeeming about this match. I don’t see the benefit of Ivan Koloff
at this stage in his career, I think its time to call it a day. The Assassins
winning is surprising as I have no idea where this feud/gimmick goes from here
but I guess time will tell but yeah, this match is as bad as it looks on paper.
Russian Assassins over Ivan Koloff & JYD via Headbutt!
Championship Match) Mike Rotunda © vs Rick Steiner
The Varsity Club was Sullivan, Rotunda
and Steiner before Steiner grew disgusted by the tactics of Sullivan and
Rotunda and was replaced with Steve Williams. Steiner looks to capture the
championship that Rotunda has carried for almost a year, I have no idea how but
they were fond of Rotunda or something. Kevin Sullivan is in a cage above the

elbowed upon re-entering the ring. Vicious kicks from Rotunda who is wearing
down Steiner, Steiner is battling back but Rotunda clamps on a reverse

but it was Williams who rang the bell, Sullivan is being lowered with the
referee believing that this was a time-limit draw. Referee Tommy Young comes
down and tells original referee Teddy Long what has happened.
This match is going to continue which
sickens Sullivan, Steiner is locked in a side headlock and Steiner shoves off
Rotunda who cracks into Kevin Sullivan with Sullivan falling to the floor and
Steiner climbing on top of Rotunda for the win, Rick Steiner is your NWA
Please stop Rotunda matches going over
8 minutes, I can tolerate him for 8 minutes I feel but I am not watching
another match with that man going anywhere near 15 minutes or 20 minutes.
Rotunda might be the most boring wrestler in the world for me, he is a total
bore in there and makes me sleepy every time. However, big moment for Steiner
who has a lot of potential if they protect him and let him be an explosive mad
man who clotheslines the shit out of people.

shoves down Windham, Windham is not happy with this development. Windham backs
Bigelow to the corner, three massive rights before Bigelow picks up Windham for
a gut-buster variation. Windham powders, Dillon looks on concerned as Windham
slowly re-enters the ring. Bigelow is dropped on his head with a belly to back
suplex by Bigelow no-sells that weak-ass shit. Dillon talks more strategy with
Windham, shoulder block from Bigelow. Windham continues looking for mercy,
looking for a test of strength here which may not be too wise before Windham
rakes the eyes and mouth of Bigelow. The right hands are not staggering

Bigelow to the floor. Bigelow atomic drops Windham, Bigelow tries a clothesline

Lame finish, really lame finish. You
cannot do much worse than this, I thought it would be interesting but I think
Windham got the short end of the stick here, would have liked to see Windham vs
Sting too. Nothing impressive about this one and that sucks that they didn’t
have something special for Windham’s match at Starrcade.

(NWA World Tag
Team Championship Match) The Road Warriors © W/ Paul Ellering vs Sting &
The Road Warriors turned heel and won
the championships from The Midnight Express to set up this match with starts
hot with brawling, the babyfaces get the upper hand though as Sting dropkicks
Hawk and Rhodes clubs down Animal. Do the fans want to boo the champions? Not

How many times am I going to have to
watch Sting come close to winning a championship, Sting needs a big win soon
because I don’t know how many times I can watch The Stinger come close to the
gold. As for the match itself, it was ok nothing special as I watched the
action unfold. Hawk and Animal can be a lot of fun to watch but that Rhodes
face-in-peril segment was very tame for the biggest show of the year. DQ finish
in a big championship match and a count-out finish in the other big
championship match, really not a good night for WCW so far.
& Dusty Rhodes over The Road Warriors via DQ!
Heavyweight Championship Match) Ric Flair © W/ JJ Dillon vs Lex Luger
Luger had come close at The Clash of The Champions but the athletic commission had stopped Luger’s dream due to excessive blood loss which in a promotion like this is absolutely ridiculous but that was this company during this era. Anyways, Sting is the chosen one for WCW but we have Luger vs Flair in the main event so how will Luger do in his second chance against Flair.

The Rack, Torture Rack in the middle of the ring. Luger’s leg buckle and
collapses with Flair falling on top and uses the ropes for the leverage to
Luger and Flair have a great match on
this night, similar to their match at The Clash without the flat finish, Luger’s
selling was great here when the leg was attacked, really put over how dangerous
things were for The Total Package, Flair leads Luger through his classic match
formula making Luger look amazing at every turn. Enjoyed the use of the chair,
the crowd really bought into this more than the usual Flair working of the knee
story, really good stuff there. I like the finish, I thought it was tough to beat
Luger here. I understand that Sting is their boy but their booking is so
atrocious for Sting in my opinion at this stage that putting the title on Luger
for a few months would not have been the worst thing in the world. Especially
when you know that a certain Dragon will be returning to WCW very shortly and
that championship will be changing hands but the last 2 matches I have seen
between these two might be the best two of Luger’s career and say what you want
about Lex Luger but with the right opponent, The Total Package can be a lot of
fun to watch.
Winner: Ric Flair
over Lex Luger via Feet On The Ropes!
That was WCW’s Starrcade 1988, a
largely disappointing show from WCW. Booking has been questionable at best and
the exodus of talent has greatly hurt the company, losing half of The Horsemen
but also mid-card acts and tag teams have left the company in a difficult
situation heading into 1989. Luger is clearly not the man to dethrone Ric
Flair, why we bypassed a possible Luger vs Windham confrontation considering
their history as tag team partners and champions is a little strange to me, we
also have Sting who has challenged for every major championship in the company
and has failed to capture any due to nefarious methods used by his opponents. I
am a fan of Sting and it’s easy to see why Sting could be the next big thing in
the company but Sting has to beat someone and has to do it quickly because I
can’t sit through another match with Sting not capturing the gold. Some matches
are delivering, Flair is delivering and Windham with the right opponent can deliver
but not a whole lot else to be excited for, Steve Williams is doing nothing
that made me love him in AJPW, he’s not throwing around the lighter Fantastics,
he’s not crushing people so that opening tag match was a bit of a tough watch.
The Midnight Express match delivers, great tag team wrestling and that’s why I
love The Midnight Express. The Paul Jones vs Ivan Koloff stuff is awful, worse
than The Jimmy Valiant stuff and that’s saying something, I never want to see
Mike Rotunda again that man has robbed me of so many minutes of my life that I
cannot get back, I am begging for someone to explain to me what was the upside of
Rotunda because he bores me inside of the ring. Another DQ for Sting in a championship
match, I am over it and I just want them to strap the rocket to Sting now, I have
suffered enough thanks very much while the main event is arguably Luger’s
finest hour but it confirms that Luger will not be world champion so where does
Luger go from here? A two match show for me with The Midnight Express and Flair
being the stars, thanks for reading and remember: there’s always another night!
