Did You Know?


Jim Cornette's infamous fall off the scaffold did not go as planned. Big Bubba was actually supposed to catch Cornette, but because of the sunglasses he was wearing, he misjudged Cornette's position. Cornette hit the mat with full impact, the pain of which caused him to pass out for a few seconds. Cornette claims to still have knee problems to this day. See more »

A mixed bag of classic NWA action!
4 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

NWA Starrcade '86 was hyped as 'Night of the Skywalkers'. The match that earned it that tagline was a tag team scaffold match between the Road Warriors and the Midnight Express (Eaton & Condrey). This match was entertaining as a novelty, but only barely. The wrestlers involved were obviously unable to perform to the best of their ability due to fear of falling from the scaffold. Who could blame them? This meant a very slow match with a lot of punches and a few stomps, and a lot of holding onto things. It reminded me of four grown men playing on a jungle gym, and was overall fun to watch if you don't set your expectations too high.

The best matches of the card were the Andersons vs. the Rock'n'roll Express and Ric Flair vs. Nikita Koloff. Although neither of those matches are what I would consider stellar, they were solid and enjoyable. Much of the rest of the card was not terribly interesting or inspired, such as Wahoo McDaniel vs. Rick Rude in an Indian Strap match, Jimmy Valiant vs. Paul Jones in a Hair vs. Hair match, Ronnie Garvin vs. Bubba Rogers in a Louisville Street Fight, and Dusty Rhodes vs. Tully Blanchard in a First Blood match. This one was particularly disappointing to me, as I know what both men are capable of, and this match was not what I would consider a great showing for either.

Overall I would call it a pretty mediocre card. If you like classic NWA wrestling like I do, you will enjoy Starrcade '86. Otherwise I don't think this pay-per-view event will be incredibly enjoyable. It was most definitely not among the best that I've seen from Jim Crockett Promotions.
