WWE is bringing War Games to the main roster for the first time ever during tonight's Survivor Series premium live event, and many celebrated the change-up from years past. The traditional Survivor Series brand vs brand format has grown rather formulaic over the past few years, with the only shot in the arm happening when NXT was involved, and that ended up being a one-time thing. This year that's changing though, and WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle is thrilled about that, calling the four on four matches "not that appealing", and with War Games, he feels WWE is giving people what they love.
On the latest episode of The Kurt Angle Show, Angle said "I mean, you know, Survivor Series was always the four-on-four. I do get it, you do want to change it up. I mean, I think that Survivor Series is probably the most unimportant top four pay-per-view of the year and I think because the four-on-four, it's not that appealing."
"You know, there's no World Championship going on in that match. It was just four vs. four, and the WarGames match was from WCW. I thought that was a great idea. It's a great gimmick match. People love it, you want to do what people love," Angle said.
The Men's and Women's War Games matches feature some of the biggest stars in WWE at the moment, and while some have been involved in War Games matches over the years in NXT, others haven't ever stepped into that type of match, so it should offer a bit of everything for fans.
