Big news came this week when Triple H, aka Paul Levesque, now WWE Chief Content Officer, announced that the WarGames will be part of the Survivor Series this November, marking the first time ever that this match concept will be used in a WWE main roster event.
And The Game also focused on the dangers the facility could pose to athletes, and how they will be addressed. The WarGames concept is a former WCW staple, which was resurrected in 2017 at NXT, with several contests taking place in this format over the following years.
The match that bears this name takes place inside a huge cage, which surrounds two rings side by side. Two teams - typically four or five wrestlers - take turns at the entrance to the facility at regular intervals during the match to battle for gold.
After revealing the WarGames, Triple H expressed his thoughts on the possibility that this time too we will see blood or not, in what has historically been a night almost always tinged with bright red.
Latest news on Triple H
"I don't think we need to take action," explained Triple H, as reported by 'WrestlingINC'
"If some of our athletes suffer any injuries or cuts, as always you will see them slip out of the ring and undergo the care of the medical staff, to make sure there is nothing dangerous. What I think is very simple. Right now.
, given the state the world is in between the pandemic and everything else, after all, what we do is dangerous enough without intentionally making it more dangerous." Triple H further explained: "When you are lucky enough to work with guys and girls who perform at the highest level, I feel like you spend more time talking to them about these issues than any topic.
There is always a balance between costs and benefits. But the WarGames are something so big that people will walk away from the show with their image engraved in their brains. It will be something unforgettable. Because if you risk your health and longevity in your profession, beyond the end of that show, beyond the date of that event, then it must be worth it."
During a recent WWE press conference in Las Vegas for Crown Jewel, Triple H said Logan Paul has earned his respect. "Logan was totally different. Logan was a guy that came in, talked to us about it, and as soon as we talked to him about doing something, man he started to put in the work...
When I saw him in the ring for the first time, he blew my mind. I saw him do it again, after that blew my mind. This is the guy as I said earlier earned my respect."
