Starrcade (2000) - Background

Background

The main feud heading into Starrcade was between Scott Steiner and Sid Vicious over the WCW World Heavyweight Championship. Steiner won the title from Booker T at Mayhem, the previous pay-per-view event. The following night on WCW Monday Nitro, Vicious was announced as Steiner's opponent in the title match at Starrcade. Vicious and Steiner brawled on the shows leading up to Starrcade. Another feud was between the Perfect Event and the Insiders (Diamond Dallas Page and Kevin Nash) over the WCW World Tag Team Championship. The Perfect Event was a part of the Natural Born Thrillers group, and Nash was their mentor. However, on the November 6 edition of Nitro, the Natural Born Thrillers turned on Nash, and Nash teamed with Page to feud with the group. At Mayhem, the Insiders won the title, but were stripped of it on the December 4 edition of Nitro due to a technicality concerning the ending of the match. The Perfect Event was awarded the title, and a rematch was made for Starrcade.

On the October 2 edition of Nitro, Vince Russo, an authority figure, made Bill Goldberg begin an undefeated streak. If Goldberg exceeded his previous streak of over 170 matches, he would be awarded a shot at the WCW World Heavyweight Championship. If he failed to do so, he would have to leave the company. Goldberg continued his streak, and Lex Luger challenged him on the October 30 edition of Nitro, starting their feud. Goldberg defeated Luger in a match at Mayhem. A rematch was made between them at Starrcade, and Luger attacked Goldberg on the following shows with a steel chair. The Sarge, who was credited for training Goldberg, also joined the feud, and aligned with Goldberg. Luger attacked The Sarge several times to taunt Goldberg.

Famous quotes containing the word background:

    They were more than hostile. In the first place, I was a south Georgian and I was looked upon as a fiscal conservative, and the Atlanta newspapers quite erroneously, because they didn’t know anything about me or my background here in Plains, decided that I was also a racial conservative.
    Jimmy Carter (James Earl Carter, Jr.)

    Pilate with his question “What is truth?” is gladly trotted out these days as an advocate of Christ, so as to arouse the suspicion that everything known and knowable is an illusion and to erect the cross upon that gruesome background of the impossibility of knowledge.
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)

    In the true sense one’s native land, with its background of tradition, early impressions, reminiscences and other things dear to one, is not enough to make sensitive human beings feel at home.
    Emma Goldman (1869–1940)
