4 things WWE got right at Starrcade
WWE Starrcade took place on Sunday, December 1, at the Infinite Energy Arena in Duluth, Georgia. Although the event was supposed to air live on the WWE Network, some technical issues led to the stream being made available on WWE’s YouTube channel.
During the night, fans got to see some big dark matches, including a Universal Championship match between ‘The Fiend’ Bray Wyatt and Braun Strowman inside a steel cage, and an Intercontinental Championship match between Shinsuke Nakamura and The Miz.
Only three matches from the show were aired live, but overall the show did a lot to build on some rivalries and storylines that can help develop some good segments on RAW and SmackDown this week.
In this article, we'll look at the 4 things WWE got right at the Starrcade event.
#4 Street Profits vs The O.C.
The broadcasted portion of Starrcade began with The Kevin Owens Show, featuring Ric Flair. Even though the segment had some technical and mic issues which prompted things to break a little and caused the crowd to chant "we can't hear you" at the start, things soon cleared up.
Flair spoke about his time in the company and how Starrcade has featured many of the biggest names in the industry.
However, The O.C.’s Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows couldn’t sit back too long and arrived to ruin the proceedings. They spoke about how Starrcade should just be about their careers as the best tag team in the world.
The Street Profits came out next and challenged The O.C. to a match. After a decent fight, The Street Profits picked up the victory to resume their rivalry with The O.C.
WWE had done well earlier to throw The Street Profits in a feud with The O.C. immediately after their debut but took them out of it at an odd time. This could mark the return of the feud which can help both teams grow on RAW before getting into the Tag Team Championship scene.
