Taz opens today’s show by speaking about the return of War Games.
Triple H and NXT announced yesterday that NXT Takeover:War Games will take place on Survivor Series weekend in Houston. He says he was always a fan of War Games so it’s pretty cool to see it returning next month.
He admits that the timing of this announcement is a little bit odd. Only a few weeks ago WWE announced that they will be promoting a live event in November under the ‘Starrcade’ banner and in Taz’s opinion that news hasn’t really sunk in yet. Now NXT is promoting the return of another iconic brand, and he thinks it might be a case of ‘too much too soon’
Taz points out that WWE needs to be careful here with how they revive these older brands, and they must be careful as to not be labeled uncreative. If they continue to cycle back through old WCW brands like this, people might start accusing WWE of being unable to come up with interesting new ideas of their own, or of simply being too lazy to do so.
