For the first time on main roster programming, the iconic cage match concept comes to WWE with the Survivor Series WarGames, and The Ringer spoke with Triple H about the legacy and future of WarGames.

WarGames, a two-ring steel cage match format that enjoyed its heyday in NWA and WCW in the 1980s and ’90s and in recent years in NXT, will be featured at WWE’s November event, which will be newly titled Survivor Series WarGames. Two WarGames matches will highlight the Survivor Series card, which Ringer learned in an exclusive interview with WWE Chief Content Officer Paul “Triple H” Levesque.

“We will have a men’s WarGames match and a women’s WarGames match,” he said. The Survivor Series tradition has come in waves and has changed a bit over time; this will be similar to that,” said Levesque. ‘This won’t be Raw versus SmackDown. It will be much more storyline driven. I still see it as a traditional component to the Survivor series out there because it is a large team of people competing. It’s just that we’ve taken it up a level and evolved it a little bit with WarGames.”

On Saturday, November 26, at Boston’s TD Garden, this premium live event will do away with the traditional Survivor Series format and replace it with the legendary Cage in the realm of WWE rival WCW (formerly known as the former NWA banner and Jim Crockett promotion). The Survivor Series and its features.

The Survivor Series and its signature four- or five-wrestler elimination tag team matches were born out of necessity. Crockett planned to run Starrcade ’87 on pay-per-view and was the first to use pay-per-view.

As a result, Survivor Series surpassed Starrcade in PPV buys. With the addition of the Royal Rumble and Summerslam in 1988, it was established as the second pillar of the current four-supershow rotation headlined by Leishmania.

The format evolved from only elimination matches between multiple or lone winners to world title matches, tournaments, and the first elimination chamber matches in WWE history.

(The most memorable events in Survivor Series history are not Survivor Series matches, but the 1997 “Montreal Screwjob” in which Bret Hart lost his world title to Shawn Michaels due to Vince McMahon’s intervention, and the 1990 chicken-suited Gobbley Gooker would be hatched).

While the Survivor Series elimination tag teams, including the Raw vs. SmackDown match that became standard starting in 2016, had their memorable moments and continued to develop various feuds, such as the Hogan-Andre storyline carried over from Lesslmania 3, few were established as instant classics.

In 1992, Flair moved to WWE, and WCW’s major storylines began to focus on Sting’s problems with Paul Heyman’s Dangerous Alliance (so called because Heyman operated as the cell phone-wielding yuppie Paul E. Dangerous). The first issue of WrestleWar.

In the second and final installment of WrestleWar, in what many consider the best version of the original style of WarGames matches, with a covered cage and a match ending only with surrender or submission, Sting, Dustin Rhodes, Windham, Ricky Steamboat, Koloff, Rick Roode, Steve Austin, Arn Anderson, Bobby Eaton, and Zbyszko.

In a bloody match between these legendary performers, Zbyszko removed a metal buckle from a broken ring rope and tried to deck Sting, who was being held from behind by Eaton. Still, Sting dodged, Eaton absorbed the blow, and a moment later, the Stinger’s cross arm submitted him to a clothesline, which was a spectacular end in its own right.
