In conjunction with Survivor Series weekend, the “minor league” of the WWE, or NXT will host the second NXT Takeover: War Games event.
The event, which debuted in 2017, is highlighted by the “War Games” match which is defined as a match that involves “two teams of either four, five, or more wrestlers locked inside a steel cage that encompassed two rings — but other different variations were made.”
The first versions of this match were used by the NWA (National Wrestling Alliance) and WCW (World Championship Wrestling).
The 2018 event is scheduled for Nov. 17 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles California and will be streamed live on the WWE Network. No card has been announced as of yet, but we can look back at the 2017 event.
NXT TakeOver: War Games History
Live from the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas in front of just under 15,000 fans, WWE put on the first-ever War Games event.
The entire card featured seven matches, including the preshow. During the preshow, we had matches between Lars Sullivan and Kassius Ohno in which Sullivan won.
The other match was between Aleister Black and Velveteen Dream, which Black won after executing his finishing move — “Black Mass.”
