One-hour Starrcade 2018 special listed on WWE Network schedule
It appears that a portion of this year’s Starrcade event will be airing on the WWE Network in some form.
The WWE Network schedule lists that a one-hour “WWE Starrcade 2018 special” will air at 8 p.m. Eastern time on Sunday, November 25. That’s the day after the event takes place at the U.S. Bank Arena in Cincinnati, Ohio.
The brief description for the special is: “Catch all your favorite Superstars competing at WWE Starrcade, a special event where both the Raw and SmackDown brands collide.”
This is the second straight year that WWE has used the Starrcade name for a live event. It was brought back for a SmackDown-brand house show in Greensboro, North Carolina during Thanksgiving weekend in 2017, with Ric Flair, Ricky Steamboat, Arn Anderson, and The Rock ‘n’ Roll Express also making appearances in Greensboro for the event.
Here’s what’s currently being advertised for Starrcade 2018:
Intercontinental Champion Seth Rollins defending against Dean Ambrose in a street fight
