Let the WarGames begin. Even all these years later, it holds up. Really does show how badly WCW bastardized the concept in the mid 90's. Hot crowd throughout. And, I don't think it could be pulled off today.
You can't beat old WarGames matches. My personal fave is still the 1992 version of the Dangerous Alliance vs. Sting's Squadron.
"It breaks your heart. It is designed to break your heart. The game begins in the spring, when everything else begins again, and it blossoms in the summer, filling the afternoons and evenings, and then as soon as the chill rains come, it stops and leaves you to face the fall alone." --- Bart Giamatti, on baseball
(Granted, most of them were unaired house show matches, but) did you realize that The Four Horsemen, or a team comprised mostly of Horsemen members, lost the first FIFTEEN WarGames matches ever done? And all in a one-year period from July '87 to July '88.
The "Horsemen" (if you really want to call this team that) finally earned a WarGames victory at WrestleWar '91; the team of Ric Flair, Barry Windham, Sid Vicious and Larry Zbyszko defeated Sting, Brian Pillman and The Steiner Brothers.

I think what killed Miz's heat this week was that he had already done two long promos backstage that got little reaction from the audience and then immediately cut another in the ring that seemed to drag on for a good length of time.
