WCW Starrcade 1997

Cewsh: Fun fact! This is our most popular review from the first year of Cewsh Reviews and it contains no pictures whatsoever. 

You'd almost think that this show had some kind of controversial ending or something.


World Championship Wrestling Proudly Presents…


Welcome cats and kittens to yet another Wrestlemania-month installment of Cewsh Reviews… Part of Mania-month is our attempt to review the biggest event of every major wrestling company. We did the NJPW show, Wrestlemania 14, HUSTLEMANIA, TNA’s Destination X (the Wrestlemania of shitty shows), and now we have what is arguably the biggest and most important show in wrestling history. Sting vs. Hogan. The signing of Bret Hart. Everything was banging on all cylinders for WCW, and the company had never and would never be hotter than on this night.

Cewsh has never seen much WCW, and Vice hasn’t watched it in years and years, and when we read this card we eyed it rather dubiously. But we’re going to give it a whirl and see what we think, and see if we can answer a few questions. How will WCW’s biggest show turn out? How does it all stand up viewing it today? Will I contract Attitude Era Syndrome and drool over Bret Hart promos? Only one way to find out...
