It is finally happening as WarGames is, for the first time, coming to the WWE main roster at the Survivor Series in November.
Speaking with The Ringer, WWE Chief Content Officer Paul Levesque confirmed that there will be a men’s and women’s WarGames matches on the show. These will replace the traditional Raw vs Smackdown matches that have dominated the Survivor Series lately.
The WCW concept was ported to NXT in 2017 and has been held every year since then. The difference between the WWE and WCW WarGames is that the double ring enclosed in a cage does not have a roof. It’s unclear if the original concept with the roof will return for the WWE version.
“This will not be Raw versus Smackdown. It will be much more story-line driven. I still look at it as a traditional component to Survivor Series in there because it’s large teams of people competing. We just upped the ante a little bit with WarGames and made it evolve,” Levesque said.
The TD Garden in Boston, Massachusetts will be hosting Survivor Series: WarGames on November 26.
