WWE has a stacked October ahead of them with the upcoming Australian Super Show-Down before SmackDown celebrates its 1000th episode and then the women of WWE take center stage for Evolution on October 28th.
It appears that October isn’t going to be the only stacked month for the company though since it was revealed earlier today that WWE is bringing back Starrcade as part of a live event, the week after Survivor Series in November.
The live event will take place from Dean Ambrose’s hometown of Cincinnati, Ohio and the card currently looks like this:
The Shield vs. Braun Strowman, Dolph Ziggler and Drew McIntyre (Cincinnati Street Fight)
AJ Styles vs. Samoa Joe (Steel Cage Match for the WWE Championship)
Charlotte Flair vs. Becky Lynch (Steel Cage Match for Smackdown Women’s Championship)
Shinsuke Nakamura vs. Rusev with Lana (For United States Championship)
The New Day vs. The Bar (For Smackdown Tag Team Championship)
This means that there could be a number of rematches at Survivor Series since many of these matches would make sense if they happened right now. The added entertainment on the night is also reportedly set to include Elias and WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair.
The women of WWE haven’t had a steel cage match since Alexa Bliss took on Becky Lynch for the SmackDown Women’s Championship back in January 2017 when Mickie James made her WWE return, so this will be the second time Lynch has stepped inside the steel.
It also means that Rusev will be stepping out of the Tag Team Championship picture so that he can challenge Shinsuke Nakamura for the United States Championship in the coming months.
