Christmas ’95 saw a brief armistice called in the Monday Night Wars, but there was no time for no man’s land football between Vince McMahon and Eric Bischoff, as Nitro went it alone for their Starrcade go-home show.
We saw all three competitors scheduled to feature in Starrcade’s triangle match take to the ring, as Lex Luger met Scotty Riggs and Sting went up against Big Bubba Rogers.
The pick of these triangle tune ups, though, saw Ric Flair and Randy Savage duke it out for the WCW title in a PPV-quality bout available at a pauper’s price…surely Bisch and the boys didn’t expect anyone to pay to see this match again any time soon.
That wasn’t all either, as we learn of a draconian punishment inflicted upon Hulk Hogan, Jimmy Hart made a new alliance and Craig Pitman successfully buried himself alive on network television. Shove that lot in your stocking.
