126. Team WCW (Roddy Piper, Diamond Dallas Page, The Warrior) vs. Team NWO Wolfpack (Kevin Nash, Lex Luger, Sting) vs. Team NWO Hollywood (Hulk Hogan, Bret Hart, Stevie Ray). (War Games Match for a Shot at the WCW Championship, WCW Fall Brawl 1998)

WarGames 2000 was an atrocity, a besmirchment on the very gimmick of War Games. Just when I thought I couldn’t scrape the barrel anymore, I watched the War Games match from 2000 (click here for my review). This one was the traditional, two cage set-up that War Games 2000 ignored in favour of three tiers of cages. But Fall Brawl 1998 version of War Games featured just as much nonsensical booking, lacklustre action, and unnecessary complications as War Games 2000.

HAMMY’S TOP 10…WWE/NXT MATCHES OF 2017

Okay, it’s late…but here are my Top 10 WWE/NXT Matches of 2017! I’ve taken time to go back and rewatch those matches that have stuck in my mind…which amounted to fifteen matches! A lot to re-watch, as you can appreciate. Let’s be honest, the main event scene in both NXT and WWE hasn’t been stuffed full of fantastic matches. Bobby Roode was a great champion, but his wrestling style doesn’t immediately lend to a great match. On the main roster, Jindar Mahal stunk up the arena and Lesnar wrestled occasionally. Still, the sheer amount of quality wrestlers meant that we were never far away from a great match. And here’s my Top 10 WWE/NXT Matches of 2017! Continue reading

Review: WWE Network’s 100 Best Matches To See Before You Die: #32 Sting’s Squadron vs. The Dangerous Alliance (War Games, WCW Wrestlewar 1992)

(Here’s the link for the match on the WWE Network: http://network.wwe.com/video/v638884283/?contentId=&contextType=wwe-show&contextId=the_wargames_collection )

The first WarGames match on the WWE Network’s 100 Best Matches…List (at #84, the WrestleWar ’91 War Games…click here for my review) was a spectacle of non-stop manic and bloody violence. A few botches actually added to the intensity of it. It also had a dud competitor in the guise of Sid Vicious. This War Games, at WrestleWar ’92, has a full retinue of good to great wrestlers. They pour their heart and soul into the match. It’s also non-stop, bloody action, but manages to better its predecessor thanks in no small part to Paul E. Dangerously and the stacked talent.
