It's crazy to think about Ric Flair being "the young, up-and-coming, next big thing" in wrestling, but in 1983, he was! This show was possibly the only time Jim Crockett beat Vince McMahon as he got a big, annual, tent-pole event to closed circuit before the WWF did with WrestleMania. A lot of the matches on this show were throw-aways, but we've got some big match-ups as well. Roddy Piper and Greg Valentine battle it out in a Dog Collar match, which co-host Greg deems "the REAL most dangerous match in wrestling," the Briscos (Jack & Jerry) defend their Tag Titles against Ricky Steamboat and Jay Youngblood, and of course, Harley Race defends the NWA World Heavyweight Title against Ric Flair in the steel cage main event match. Also, in the news, we talk about Vince McMahon trying to steal Harley away before this big show, WCCW running a Thanksgiving Star Wars event the same day as Starrcade, and much more!
