  • 35th Anniversary of the first Starrcade In 1983, Jim Crockett Promotions' annual Thanksgiving Day show took on a new name - "Starrcade."  This new event succeeded a long-standing tradition of shows in both Greensboro, North Carolina and Norfolk, Virginia. Starrcade maintained its Turkey Day airing for several years before shifting to December.  The event became WCW's big annual event up until 2000 (several months before the WWF purchased them).The WWF, now WWE, has begun recycling some of the old JCP and WCW concepts.  They have promoted Great American Bash and Clash of Champions events and used War Games, but no event carries more prestige than Starrcade.  Last year, they brought the event back to Greensboro as a house show and This event, which ...

  • NoShavember - Greatest Beards in Pro-Wrestling Beards are a fashion trend that have come and gone over the years.  Most recently, it seems like they're everywhere and the pro-wrestling world is no different.  When analyzing what makes a "great beard" on a pro-wrestler, one must consider several factors.1.

  • The first all-women's pay-per-view... happened 26 years ago? In 1989, the LPWA (Ladies' Professional Wrestling Association) was formed by Tor Berg.  It was essentially the successor to GLOW, but opted for a more serious approach.  In 1992, they held their first pay-per-view event and the first all-women's pro-wrestling pay-per-view event.  The WWE's Evolution show, while it will have more eyeballs watching and a bigger house in attendance, is not, despite what they say, the first all-women's pay-per-view.1.

  • October is Italian-American Heritage October is Italian-American Heritage Month in the United States.  Columbus Day, despite all its controversies, is traditionally something of an Italian pride holiday as Christopher Columbus was originally from Italy.  While the presence of Italian culture in the United States may not seem unusual today, they came in waves during the late 1800s and early 1900s and were not always well received.  In the pro-wrestling realm, Italians were not bringing wrestling traditions like other Europeans were, but they could bring in the fans, especially in the urban areas like New York City, Boston, Philadelphia and Baltimore, where significant "Little Italy" neighborhoods developed.  In Canada, Toronto and Montreal both had significant Italian immigrant communities worth noting.  While World War ...
