Starrcade Lineup

Starrcade Lineup updated for SmackDown Live house show on Nov. 25, 2017, next week in Greensboro, North Carolina, is as follow:

  1. WWE Championship Steel Cage Match 

 AJ Styles (c) vs. Jinder Mahal.

  1. SmackDown Women’s Championship Steel Cage Match 

North Carolina’s Own Charlotte Flair (c) vs. Natalya.

  1. United States Championship 

Baron Corbin (c) vs. Shinsuke Nakamura

  1. SmackDown Tag Team Championship Fatal 4 Way 

The Usos(c) vs. The New Day vs. Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn vs. Shelton Benjamin & Chad Gable

  1. Grudge Match

Bobby Roode vs. Dolph Ziggler

  1. Dustin Rhodes vs. Dash Wilder

The original card features;  Mahal defending the WWE Championship against Nakamura in the Steel Cage, Styles as the United States Champion defending against Corbin and Rusev, The New Day as Tag Team Champions facing The Usos in a Texas Tornado match for the titles and Zayn facing Owens. Breezango going against Aiden English & Mike Kanellis, and The Rock ‘N’ Roll Express vs. Karl Anderson & Luke Gallows.

Because every SmackDown championship has changed hands, the Starrcade card to be changed too. The only matches that haven’t been altered are Bobby Roode vs Dolph Ziggler, and the SmackDown Women’s Steel Cage match; which will feature Flair as the champion rather than Natalya.

Special Appearances

The wrestlers schedule to make appearances in Greensboro includes; The Hardy Boyz, WWE Hall of Famers: Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat, The Rock ‘n’ Roll Express, and “The Nature Boy” Ric Flair.

Writer’s View

If I were a part of the WWE Creative Team, I’d add Dustin Rhodes to go for the US title match. Why? Because Dusty Rhodes is the American Dreams, and is the one credited for creating this PPV; so it’s more fitting for his son to go for the US title.

Starrcade Lineup by Me:

  1. Styles (c) vs Rhoode ( Mahal vs Rhoode “winner face styles” on SDLive) cage match.
  2. Charlotte (c) vs Natalya match gonna steal the show (no need to change) cage match.
  3. Corbin (c) vs Nakamura vs Dustin Rhodes  (we got the dream, the nightmare, so he can be the reality)
  4. The Usos (c) vs The New Day vs Breezango vs Owens & Zayn.
  5. Rusev vs Big E (if wwe plans to keep the belts to Usos, but i’d let Owens & Zayn wins it, yet they are in the hot seat so i don’t think meekmahan is all in for them to win the titles).
  6. Wilder vs Gable (opening match and future tag team set up).
  7. Last is I think there will be more special surprise appearances Like Bret Hart, Arn Anderson (all four horsemen).

So what do you think of my card? Let me know in the comment below.
