The upcoming WWE pay-per-view for NXT: TakeOver will now feature the return of a popular match and concept from the days of World Championship Wrestling (WCW).
In a report from ProWrestlingSheet on Wednesday, it was revealed that the huge NXT PPV match was officially announced by the show’s General Manager William Regal.
Several weeks ago, rumors hit the internet of the WWE’s upcoming Starrcade event slated for November in Greensboro, North Carolina, and reports later confirmed it .
The classic War Games match was created by none other than the late, great Dusty “The American Dream” Rhodes and was based on a concept in the movie Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome .
That led to some intense War Games matches over the years with the first of them featuring The Road Warriors teaming up with Dusty Rhodes and Nikita Koloff to defeat the Four Horsemen.
