Rebooking Starrcade 89
By Scott Keith on 4th October 2022
I finally watched Starrcade 89 and of course agree with all the complaints about the format. I know you've answered too many questions about how to rebook it, but I'm curious how Meltzer would have done it. I checked your Observer Flashback, and below is what you wrote. Care to revisit it now and share what he said? Sounds like he had some good ideas.
– At this point he goes into a lengthy, 3-page fantasy rebook of the show, detailing what the card should have been and what finishes he would have booked. The end result is a beautifully detailed roadmap of the promotion for years to come. I don’t really feel like going over it, though.
Look, it’s a famous issue of the Observer and everyone who needs to know already has it memorized and knows how it influenced Tony Khan on the formation of AEW. I could rehash it again and go over all the intricate details but it would literally spoil the next two years of Dynamite and I don’t want to be that guy.
