WWE’s plans for WarGames matches following Survivor Series 2022 have been updated. For the November 26th premium live event, the popular stipulation was brought to the main roster. On the show, there were two WarGames matches.

Becky Lynch, Bianca Belair, Alexa Bliss, Asuka, and Mia Yim defeated Damage CTRL, Rhea Ripley, and Nikki Cross in the show’s opening match. In the main event, The Bloodline defeated the Brawling Brutes, Drew McIntyre, and Kevin Owens. In an interview with Kevin Owens on WWE After The Bell, announcer Corey Graves stated that, following the success of Survivor Series WarGames, WWE has been considering how to better utilize the stipulation.

Graves compared Kevin Owens, who has participated in the WarGames twice, to his first time getting to call the event. He mentioned that it was the first time it happened on the main roster and that Kevin Patrick was there. Graves then disclosed that they had a meeting, as they do every week before Monday Night Raw.

Since this was the first WarGames match on the main roster, there were questions about how to make it better and how to modify it. Graves explained how a lot was going on and how they got both the men’s and women’s all in the same night. He claimed that it is quite difficult to differentiate two matches of the same style within the same card. Graves concluded by saying that it was a very exciting conversation that everyone enjoyed.


You’ve (Kevin Owens) competed inside WarGames twice. It was my first time getting to call WarGames. Obviously the first time it happened on the main roster. Monday morning, full disclosure to everybody, Kevin Patrick was there, we had a meeting as we do before Monday Night Raw each and every week and there were questions asked as to how do we improve WarGames, how do we tweak WarGames because this was the first rollout.

We got the men’s and the women’s all in the same night. There was a lot happening. It’s very difficult to differentiate two of the same style matches within the same card. Kudos to all 20 people involved because that’s exactly what happened successfully. It was a very exciting conversation to be a part of because everybody across the board went, ‘Cool. Saturday night was a success. How do we make it better?’

According to recent report, WWE is considering bringing back another classic match type for the Royal Rumble in 2023. Let’s see what the company has in store for us next. To get the latest updates, keep an eye on Ringside News.
