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

Wow, all these years later and I can still feel tense as they make their way to those cages. The double ring was an awesome site.

Showed these to my 15 year old son. He'd only heard of Ric Flair and "Cody Rhodes' dad".

He thought it was nice and bloody and violent and entertaining.

(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.

Ultimately, this will lead to a variant on the "Miracle Ecstacy" finisher (Chokeslam setup into a sitdown Powerbomb), replacing the Chokeslam setup with Foley/Flair's "Testicular Claw" as the setup part somewhere in the indies...
