I really enjoyed your Greatest Starcade Ever Event! I also very much liked you posting your result with the original result of the real world event! Very nice touch Here's hoping will see a part two in the future if possible!
Seconded! I’d love to see promoters do more of these type of cards. Great idea and very nostalgic.
So with 3 days off from work for the holiday and I decided to run another tournament. This one using the new Legends guys including the Tag Team 4-Pack. A couple b&w cards were also used to supplement the show. Here we go!
IT'S BEGINNING TO LOOK A LOT LIKE A LEGENDS TOURNAMENT
The event began with a video package hyping the show and focusing on the 8 participants in tonight's tournament… Gary Michael Cappetta dressed in a black and white tuxedo welcomed the fans to the Orlando Arena in Orlando, FL and handled the ring introductions for the opening match.
1. First Round:Davey Boy Smith (3) defeated Fit Finlay (2) (w/Hornswoggle) in a great opener. Hornswoggle was taunting Davey Boy outside the ring, but when Finlay tried to attack, he back body dropped him on the floor! A RUNNING POWERSLAM followed and got the British Bulldog the win. Note - Finlay's card is TOUGH
Mean Gene Okerlund tried to get a word with Mr. Hughes backstage about his match, but wasn't able to get a peep out of him. He just stood there, wearing sunglasses, his arms crossed and a mean scowl while saying zilch before walking away.
2. First Round:D'Lo Brown (2) defeated Mr. Hughes (2) by count out in another good match, albeit shorter. D'Lo took a beating but sidestepped Hughes on the floor and the big bodyguard rammed himself into the ring steps and couldn't make it back into the ring in time.
Hughes, upset with the decision slid back into the ring and drilled D'Lo with a SPIKE SLAM before putting his hat and shades back on and leaving the ring.
3. First Round:The Patriot (2) defeated Val Venis (3) in a nice back and forth match, finishing him with a second UNCLE SLAM. Venis tried unsuccessfully to unmask Patriot during the bout after not being able to put him away with the MONEY SHOT. Sherri who came down to ringside to watch the match did not look very impressed with Venis.
Jim Cornette gave Cappetta the next match off and handled the ring introduction for Vader himself.
4. First Round:Big Van Vader (1) (w/Jim Cornette) defeated Hugh Morrus (4) in a hard hitting affair. The laughing ended as soon as the bell rang and Morrus knocked Vader out of the ring which popped the crowd. Vader came back however and pummeled Morrus but couldn't keep him down until he caught a cross body attempt and drilled him to the mat with a power body slam for the win. Note: Thought he had Vader early on, and if that 3 roll would have been snake eyes I would've called it a night.
Before Capetta could resume his duties and introduce the Tag Team Title match, Jacques Rougeau took the mic and said the Mounties always get their man, and they always keep the tag team titles!
5. World Tag Title:New Age Outlaws (Billy Gunn  & Jesse James ) defeated The Quebecers (c) (Jacques Rougeau  & Pierre Carl Ouelette ) to win the straps when Gunn pinned Rougeau with the FAMOUSER. The Outlaws drilled Ouelette With a spike piledriver earlier in the match, but the Mounties responded with underhanded tactics and hit their Bombe de Rougeau on Roaddog for a near fall. During a 4-man melee after a pin save late in the bout, Gunn caught Rougeau with his finisher to give the Outlaws the gold.
An ad aired for "The Greatest Starrcade Ever II", coming soon...maybe.
Disco music hit the loud speakers and Disco lights flashed through the arena as Disco Inferno danced his way to the ring. Despite most fans heckling him, he thanked them all for coming out to see him dance which drew even more boos. GM Teddy Long came out and said since Disco was already in the ring, playa, he was scheduling a match RIGHT NOW... and his opponent... Konnan!
6. Konnan (0) easily defeated Disco Inferno (0) with the 187. Disco tried running away but Konnan wasn't having it and made the Disco Dancing Machine pay for turning on him a few weeks ago on national TV.
Immediately after the bell however, Curt Hennig, Rick Rude & Virgil in street clothes ambushed Konnan. Along with Ted DiBiase, they put a beat down on the Mexican superstar before spray painting MDC on his chest and stuffing a $100 bill in his mouth.
The announcers talked about the humiliating attack by DiBiase and his gang on Konnan and speculate the meaning behind MDC.
7. Semifinal:Davey Boy Smith (0) defeated D'Lo Brown (2) with the RUNNING POWER SLAM. Brown, still feeling the effects of that Spike Slam from Mr. Hughes earlier on put up a valiant effort but didn't have much of a chance.
Cappetta handed Cornette the microphone once again so he could handle the big man's ring introduction.
8. Semifinal:Big Van Vader (3) defeated The Patriot (5) in the match of the night thus far. Patriot had the monster from the Rocky Mountains reeling after he missed a MOONSAULT he but couldn't keep him down. After a series of slams and suplexes wore the masked man down, it was a third VADER BOMB that ended it and set up the final between Vader and the Bulldog.
2 Cold Scorpio & Marcus Bagwell were interviewed backstage by Mean Gene about their debut match against the rough and rugged Texas Hangmen.
9. 2 Cold Scorpio  & Marcus Bagwell  defeated the Texas Hangmen (Killer  & Psycho ). A sneak attack during Capetta's ring intros backfired on Psycho as he posted himself outside of the ring. Terrific back and forth action saw the crowd fully behind the high flying new team, and Bagwell ended up pinning Psycho with the YELLOW JACKET SUPLEX to pick up the victory.
The announcers make their picks for the tournament final... backstage shots of both Vader (with Cornette) and Smith were shown as they headed toward the ring.
10. Final:Big Van Vader (3) (w/Jim Cornette) defeated Davey Boy Smith (0) to win the tournament. Senior official Morgan Dollar was assigned the match and nearly tossed Cornette from ringside after the loudmouthed manager disrupted a pin attempt after Bulldog sent Vader crashing to the mat with a huge superplex that shook the ring. Vader brawled his way back into the match and dropped the Bulldog with a devastating RELEASED POWER BOMB for the 1-2-3.
The announcers exclaimed "IT'S TIME, IT'S TIME, IT'S VADER TIME!" as Cornette pointed at Vader with his tennis racket as the Mastodon stood on the second turnbuckle raising the huge trophy to end the show.
Figured after all the singles tournaments I ran the last few days, it was time for a tag team tournament.
