Jim Cornette has taken issue with the fact that 2 WarGames matches will take place at Survivor Series, labelling the women’s match “ridiculous.”
The history of WarGames goes all the way back to the days of Jim Crockett Promotions in the late eighties. The two-ring cage match was revived in WWE as part of the NXT brand in 2017 and it had been the preserve of WWE’s developmental brand until now.
“We’ll have a men’s WarGames match and a women’s WarGames match. The tradition of the Survivor Series has ebbed and flowed and changed slightly over time, but this will be similar to that.”
Speaking on his Experience podcast, Jim Cornette – who was ringside for the WarGames match at The Great American Bash in 1989 – has hit out at the idea of a women’s WarGames taking place at Survivor Series:
“Now I hear they’re gonna have WarGames. But at the same time, not only are they going to have WarGames and no blood, because Triple H had just said he didn’t like the blood, it’s irresponsible in today’s environment. But on the same show, they’re gonna have a women’s and men’s WarGames, a women’s WarGames is ridiculous.”
“The WarGames was the ultimate display of violence that could be perpetrated between 10 Guys in a double ring with a double cage to settle a f*cking issue between the biggest stars in all of wrestling. And then on a show they’re going to have 2 of them, and of course, the girls is going to go on first. So a girl’s WarGames with any girls, much less the girls they got, is f*cking phoney and silly and stupid and rotten. Because if it was real, they wouldn’t last 15 seconds before they were all ripped limb from limb in a f*cking dangerous cage like that.”
“And all that a women’s WarGames does, in front of a men’s WarGames is take the f*cking bloom off the rose of the men’s WarGames that people might want to see. But if there’s no blood in a f*cking men’s WarGames inside a steel cage and an ultimate blow-off match, then you’ve just sh*t the bed anyway. So I don’t see how they’re ever gonna get this sh*t back on track now that I’ve just gone over all those various f*cking things that are wrong.”
