As previously noted, Triple H announced during a conference call to promote NXT Takeover that the War Games match will not have a roof on top of the structure.
“We’re not going to have a roof,” Triple H said. “I think it’s a little bit limiting. I think the style has changed. I’m not saying that anyone’s going to do it in this match, but I think going forward, I try to think about the future… look, Arn Anderson wasn’t doing moonsaults off the top of a cage (laughs). This allows for there to be a little bit of a different opportunity there to do some things.”
“I don’t think personally that we’ve changed the concept of what it is… there are some small tweaks, but I think they work better in today’s generation than it did in the format that was originally used.”
Dave Meltzer discussed the announcement on today’s installment of Wrestling Observer Live and said that Triple H actually wanted to have a roof on the structure. Meltzer revealed that it was Vince McMahon who decided against it. Vince’s ruling always overrules Triple H’s and Vince got his way.
