WWE Brings Back Tony Schiavone To Hype “Starrcade” House Show

It’s not just Dusty Rhodes concepts and brand names WWE is mining from their Jim Crockett Promotions archive. Looks like they’ve also enlisted longtime JCP/WCW announcer Tony Schiavone to promote the Nov. 25 Starrcade event in Greensboro, North Carolina. As far as we know, it’s still just a house show with an old gimmick to sell extra tickets, but that hasn’t prevented them from pulling out some pretty cool stops to sell this bad boy.

Here’s Schiavone delivering an old school WCW “Control Center” rundown of the card:

  • I love Schiavone but he has absolutely no energy here and his voice is oddly off. He also looks really disheveled. Not a good look for him here at all.
