WHIO TV in Ohio is reporting that WWE is bringing back Starrcade again this year for another co-branded special event, similar to what they did last year when they brought back the iconic NWA/WCW event for an untelevised special event to the Greensboro Coliseum in North Carolina. This year’s Starrcade event will happen Saturday November 24, but at the US Bank Arena in Cincinnati, Ohio. Traditionally held in the Southern states during the NWA’s promotional days of the event, WCW moved it to the East in 1997, holding the final four WCW Starrcades in Washington, DC.
