The Match Beyond Comes To NXT
Via an announcement via Twitter and WWE.com earlier tonight, there'll be a WarGames match at the next NXT TakeOver event in Houston during Survivor Series weekend. This marks the first time in more than 19 years a WarGames match goes on and it marks the first time one has ever taken place under the WWE banner. Triple H didn't announce who will be involved in the match, I'm sure it was announced during tonight's NXT tapings but don't post those if you read the taping results as you'll be posting spoilers and that's a no no. If you watch NXT regularly, then you probably can figure out who'll be involved; my guess is that the Undisputed Era, consisting of Adam Cole, Kyle O'Reilly & Bobby Fish, will be involved somehow as factions have frequently held a prominent place in the WarGames matches.
A lot of people have been wanting to see WWE revive the WarGames match for years, and there's been talk of it happening, though I'm happy to see that NXT will be the one bringing it back. When it comes to overall consistency and quality, NXT is superior to the main roster and has been for a very long time. One drawback is that the WarGames won't come off as though it's as big of a deal, not even remotely, since it's not going down on the main roster but, for me, it's an acceptable sacrifice as I trust NXT to get the most out of the match more than I do the main roster.
