Survivor Series 2019 will always be remembered for featuring NXT as part of the brand warfare. This was the first time that three brands were feuding for supremacy. While RAW and SmackDown were considered the top shows in the company, NXT emerged victorious at Survivor Series 2019. It now seems like Triple H pitched to have another unique match take place at the event.

Speaking on his Oh You Didn’t Know podcast, WWE Senior Vice President Road Dogg revealed that Triple H pitched for a WarGames match to take place at the show. However, the idea was quickly turned down by then-Chairman, Vince McMahon.

“Yes, and look he’s always wanted to do that, he’s had that in mind, and that’s why we started doing it down there. But yeah, he wanted to do it there. It just wasn’t time yet. And so I don’t disagree with that, we hadn’t had one yet. I don’t think we had had one yet maybe we had at that point.” [NXT had held two WarGames matches in 2017 and 2018, with two more taking place on an NXT TakeOver on the night before Survivor Series].

But I feel like Hunter liked that match a lot more than Vince did. And I think Vince thinks, and rightfully so by the way, this cannot be argued with, it does step on Hell in a Cell a little bit. Like you can’t have those two close together because it’s a huge cage match and a huge cage match and how do you promote and keep special one or the other? So it is a debate to be had.


But yeah, Hunter always thought that WarGames was a great, you know, one of Dusty’s creations that was awesome. And he wanted to carry it forward. So yeah, he always had that idea.”

Now with Triple H in charge of the creative direction of the company, he has doubled down on the match for this year’s event, with two WarGames matches set to take place at this year’s Survivor Series. It will be interesting to see if a WarGames match will feature every year at Survivor Series.
