Trivia

Received an official VHS release in the USA (catalogue number T7091), however the title was misprinted on the cover as "WCW Starrcade 1997". As a result of this error, the official VHS of WCW Starrcade 1996 is often mistaken as being WCW Starrcade 1997 (1997) - a different event. See more »

GOOD event, could of been better though
20 October 2004 | by ThePrototypeSee all my reviews

This event was pretty good, the Woman's match was good, the Liger/Msyterio match like most matches these two have had was good. Dean Malenko and Dragon put on a decent match. WCW United States Title: Eddie Guerrero vs. Dallas Page could of been better, so could of the tag team match.

The main event (Hogan VS Piper) started out of World War 3 the month earlier, where Piper called out Hogan for a match, in the end Hogan and the nWo at the time attacked Piper's injured hip (right where the scare is) then before Hogan leaves the ring he signs the match contract leaving Piper in the ring trying to stand up.

The match started with Hogan on the outside refusing to enter the ring, so Piper decided to chase him around outside.

WCW Cruiserweight Title/WCW Cruiserweight/Super J Cup Titles: Ultimo Dragon vs. Dean Malenko

Very good match, both men are great workers, both men work hard in the match, and pull of a good one. 4/5.

Jushin Liger vs. Rey Mysterio Jr.

Like all matches, this one didn't disappoint, I am a huge Mysterio and Liger fan, and I enjoyed this match. Liger had just came off having a tumour removed, so he didn't move too well during the match, but still managed to put on a very good match. 5/5.

Lex Luger vs. The Giant,

This match was a dud, Luger over sold again, tried to get Giant up like he did at World War 3. Once he got him in the rack, Nick Patrick kicked Luger in the back of the knee making him drop The Giant, he and another nWo member attacked Luger. As Sting entered the ring, Patrick was sucking up to Sting by patting him on the back, but was shoved down by bat. Sting went over to Ginat whispered something in his ear he did the same to Luger. The left the bat in the ring for either to use it, Luger got their first, but Giant ended up standing on it. 2/5

WCW Tag Team Titles: The Outsiders vs. The Faces of Fear 3/5.

WCW Women's Title: Madusa vs. Akira Hokuto

Pretty decent match, both women worked well, I think there could of been more wrestling moves, and less of the womens hair pulling and stuff. 4/5.

WCW United States Title: Eddie Guerrero vs. Dallas Page Fairly decent match 3/5

Jeff Jarrett vs. Chris Benoit 4/5.

WCW World Champion Hollywood Hogan vs. Roddy Piper (non-title match) 3/5.
