WWE Bringing Back WCW PPVs? WWE Announces The Return Of War Games

Halloween Havoc NWA WCW PPV

• WWE Announces The Return Of War Games

WWE announced the following earlier today:

NXT TakeOver: WarGames returns this November in Los Angeles, tickets available this Friday

“NXT TakeOver: WarGames returns this November when the black-and-yellow brand comes to the STAPLES Center on the eve of Survivor Series on Saturday, Nov. 17.

Tickets for the huge WWE Network special event, which marks the first NXT TakeOver on the West Coast, will be available starting this Friday, July 20, at 1 p.m. ET/10 a.m. PT, at nxttickets.com.

The NXT Universe witnessed the monumental return of the first WarGames Match in nearly 20 years last November. Initially made famous as one of the premier match types in the NWA and, later, WCW, WarGames is a battleground unlike any other, pitting teams against each other inside two rings surrounded by a steel cage.

Last year’s match, fought among Undisputed ERA, Authors of Pain & Roderick Strong and SAnitY, set a new standard for brutality and gave Undisputed ERA bragging right after they picked up the historic win.

Don’t miss out on your chance to watch the action of TakeOver: WarGames live and in person this November when NXT comes to The City of Angels.”

• WWE Bringing Back WCW PPVs?

WWE reduced the number of pay-per-view events after WrestleMania 34. From May onwards, PPVs started to be co-branded so the number of these events reduced. According to Barn Burner, WWE is planning to make some changes to its PPV events by replacing some of the names of the current ones.

Brad Shepard reports that WWE is considering an overhaul of their PPV system beyond that of the co-branded shows and time changes. WWE may replace a number of PPV events with WCW PPV events.

There is speculation that Halloween Havoc and Starrcade might make a return. WWE even used the latter as a house show in North Carolina in fall of 2017.

WWE is yet to confirm about the changes in its PPV names and also in the lineup of PPVs for 2018. The themed PPVs like Hell In A Cell and TLC are felt too common for viewers now so expect some changes soon.
