Consistent show. One of the best in the Starrcade series!
1 May 2005 | by (Memphis, TN) – See all my reviews

Ratings out of 10.

* The Fantastics vs Kevin Sullivan & Dr Death (5) Fulton & Rogers do their best to carry the Varsity Club to a good match. Not bad, just very sloppy in spots.

* Midnight Express vs Original Midnight Express (7) Great old school NWA tag match. Originals are Randy Rose & Dennis Condrey. Super hot crowd in this one. Jim Cornette and Paul E are a riot inside and outside the ring.

* JYD & Ivan Koloff vs Russian Asassins (1) This is the match to skip. Pretty boring affair involving 4 of the most nonathletic wrestlers you'll ever see.

* Mike Rotunda vs Rick Steiner (6) Some great mat wrestling in this one. Too long but the finish is satisfying as Steiner goes over. The crowd goes insane for the victory.

* Barry Windham vs Bam Bam Bigelow (7) Windham is the man and he proves it by carrying Bigelow to the most entertaining match of his career (IMO). Countout finish is my only complaint about this one.

* Sting & Dusty Rhodes vs The Road Warriors (7) Another super hot match where the crowd is just crazy. Everyone busts ass in this one (even Dusty). Very entertaining match with a disappointing DQ finish.

* Ric Flair vs Lex Luger (8) The rules in this one are if Flair gets DQed, he loses the title. Good action for most of this 30 minute match. Luger's repetitive move-set gets annoying from time to time but Flair's brilliance makes up for it. Good finish to the PPV as Flair goes over clean and seemingly ends his feud with Luger.
