During this Thanksgiving week, we go back and take a look and listen to when Thanksgiving night was the biggest night of the year in Pro Wrestling.

Starrcade '85 was full of memorable moments, but if you think it was because of the end of the Dusty Rhodes/Ric Flair title match, then you miss the point and are only looking for the negative.

There was so much more: Magnum T.A. versus Tully Blanchard in an "I Quit" match for the U.S. Title. Buddy Landel winning the National Title and the Rock and Roll Express topping the Ivan and Nikita Koloff for the World Tag Title.

There were some other matches that had their moments such as Superstar Billy Graham and the Barbarian in an arm wrestling contest. Black Bart meeting Ron Bass in a bullrope match and the Midnight Express against Jimmy Valiant and Ron Garvin in drag in a tuxedo street fight.

A lot to unpack, but a lot of NWA-Jim Crockett Promotions history in the making.
