WCW/New Japan Supershow was an annual professional wrestling pay-per-view (PPV) event jointly produced by World Championship Wrestling (WCW) and New Japan Pro Wrestling (NJPW). It was held in 1991, 1992 and 1993, and was promoted as "Starrcade" in Japan, but not billed as such in the United States due to WCW already having a show called "Starrcade" held each year in December.[1] The show would be taped in Japan and then edited and aired in North America at a later date in WCW. The final two of were also the first two January 4 Dome Show. The events are some of the few pay-per-views not made available for streaming on the WWE Network service.
