Starrcade DVD

According to PWInsider, there's a Best of Starrcade double disc set coming out the first week of December. Woohoo. Anyway, assuming you have about five hours to work with, what matches would you include on the set? Hopefully they'll shy away from putting Flair/Race on a *third* WWE DVD release, but we'll see, and I could understand how it could have a place on this set.

Awesome.

 

I am going to go with picks that have already been released commercially interspersed with matches I would like to see.

 

1984 - Ricky Steamboat vs. Tully Blanchard

1985 - Magnum TA vs. Tully Blanchard

1988 - Ric Flair vs. Lex Luger

1990 - Doom vs. Windham/Anderson

1992 - Steamboat/Douglas vs. Windham/Pillman

 

Christ, they really need to do a Best of Great American Bash/Beach Blast/Bash at the Beach.

 

And then a Misc one with Wrestle War, Clash matches, Capital Combat.

83 - Briscos vs. Steamboat & Youngblood

84 - Steamboat vs. Blanchard

85 - Magnum vs. Blanchard

86 - RnR vs. Andersons (cage)

87 - Luger vs. Dusty (cage), Roadies vs. Anderson & Blanchard

88 - Flair vs. Luger

92 - Sting vs. Vader, Steamboat & Douglas vs. Windham & Pillman

93 - Flair vs. Vader

96 - Liger vs. Mysterio OR Malenko vs. Ultimo (forget which was better)

97 - Sting vs. Hogan

98 - Goldberg vs. Nash (this could be vital in explaining why WCW went under)

99 - Benoit vs. Jarrett (ladder)

 

This release sounds somewhat like the 1988 Best of 2-tape set hosted by Mangum TA. I hope it is considering that's somewhat hard to find and all the matches are complete.

Just to let you know, since I probably own more WWE DVDs than anyone else here (at least the recent ones), the Flair/Race match has only been on one release. The noting of it on the Best of the 80s DVD was a false advertisement.

Sting - Vader would be a lock in the real world, but maybe their lack of an agreement with Sting might make them think of other matches. I hope not.

They own the footage, so who cares if Sting likes it or not? They've included stuff with Bruno on DVDs already and I'm sure they didn't have an agreement with him.

Flair-Race is only on the Flair DVD. Magnum-Tully, however, is on the Steel Cage DVD.
