The much anticipated Best of Starrcade, which is to be released in January, 2009, is going to feature both a documentary on the PPV, as well as a countdown of the greatest matches. Below are the details of the DVD:

For close to two decades, it was the signature event- first in NWA, then WCW. Some of the greatest Superstars in wrestling history had defining moments at the event. Starrcade may be gone, but fans of sports entertainment continue to celebrate its rich tradition and lasting legacy.
