TODAY IN PRO WRESTLING HISTORY… NOV 26th: Flair regains the Ten Pounds of Gold from Garvin

DATELINE: NOV. 27, 1987  – UIC PAVILION – CHICAGO, IL


After losing his title two months earlier, Nature Boy Ric Flair re-captures the NWA World Heavyweight championship at Starrcade ’87: Chi-Town Heat.

This was the first NWA event on PPV, and also the first major event from Jim Crockett Promotions since the merger with Bill Watts’ Universal Wrestling Federation. This is also the final Starrcade under the JCP banner, as Ted Turner would buy the promotion and rebrand it World Championship Wrestling by the next year.
