Fantasy Rebooking WCW Starrcade 1999 PPV Card Lineup of Matches

Posted by Anthony Mango Tuesday, January 31, 2023

Welcome to a special edition of FANTASY BOOKING where we discuss what we would do if we were given the power to control what happens when it comes to pro wrestling creative and the planning of events.

This edition was requested as part of the Pick Your Poison tier on the Smark Out Moment Patreon by Magpie's Nest Productions. Many thanks for sponsoring this!

The idea is to put yourself in the shoes of the writers at that time and try to book the best card you can think of, with the benefit of hindsight.

The Rules (set forth by our sponsor and myself):

1) The earliest time you can go back to is October 1999. This is meant to be a situation where you are taking over for Vince Russo's spot as booker, so you can't go back to events prior to that and undo them. But anything after Russo comes on board is fair game to change.

2) You must stick to the roster itself, including general releases, injuries and signings. No randomly adding people into the mix that weren't there. For example, you can't just say you'd sign Owen Hart and have him avoid his tragic death.

3) There is some major benefit of hindsight that is just unavoidable. I think it's impossible to look at this event and disregard Chris Benoit's future actions, for instance. However, I'll try to keep myself in the mindset of 1999 and not dwell as much on looking back with 2023 goggles.

Want to hear my pitch about this and listen to what my co-hosts have to suggest for their own cards? Check out the latest episode of the Smack Talk podcast below!
