The WWE live event known as “Starrcade” takes place tonight in Cincinnati, Ohio. Tomorrow (Sunday) on WWE Network, they will air a one-hour version of the Starrcade event at 8 ET/5 PT on WWE Network. Here are the matches and segments that will air as announced on WWE.com today:
AJ Styles vs. Samoa Joe (Steel Cage Match) – I assume that’s going to air last on the WWE Network broadcast.
Sasha Banks, Bayley, Ember Moon & Dana Brooke vs. Nia Jax, Tamina, Alicia Fox & Mickie James – Typical Raw women’s tag team match.
A live Elias performance featuring WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair – Some heel will probably try to break it up and Elias will beat them up. That’s usually how things go.
“Miz TV” featuring Shinsuke Nakamura and Rey Mysterio – It could set up a US Title feud with champion Nakamura and Mysterio. They might even have a match at Starrcade because it was advertised originally.
Here’s the full card lineup that is taking place tonight, which we posted about on Thursday:
Intercontinental Championship Steel Cage Match: Seth Rollins (c) vs. Dean Ambrose
Steel Cage Match: AJ Styles vs. Samoa Joe
United States Championship: Shinsuke Nakamura (c) vs. Rey Mysterio
Charlotte Flair vs. Asuka
Smackdown Tag Team Championships: The Bar (c) vs. The New Day
Finn Balor vs. Drew McIntyre

Special Concert by Elias with WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair
Plus, Sasha Banks, Bayley, Dolph Ziggler and many more live!
That’s all for now. I’ll have a review of this Starrcade event on TJRWrestling likely on Monday morning. I don’t think I’ll have time on Sunday night to do it. I don’t expect much in the way of news, but it’s a one hour show that should fly by quickly.
