User Reviews

Lame tournament = Bad show.

Starrcade (1989) involved two ironmen torunaments, one for the tag teams and one for the singles wrestlers. They're both bad and not even worth commenting on. The bookers tried to hard to be different and everyone involved wounded up on the short end of the stick. All of the wrestlers didn't seem to care for it at all. The Great Muta sleepwalked through his matches and Ric Flair wasn't the "Nature Boy" that night either. Just another showcase for Sting.

Not recommended.

D-

Ric Flair does not make a very good face (i.e. good guy). He's the ultimate heel.
