The news of this clash had always been reported by PWInsider. According to the well-known overseas site, in fact, WWE's plans were to hold a War Games match between the full Bloodline, therefore formed by: Roman Reigns, the Usos, Solo Sikoa and Sami Zayn and on the other side the Brawling Brutes and then Shemus, Ridge Holland and Butch, Drew McIntyre and the returning Kevin Owens.
With these names at stake, Wrestling Observer's Bryan Alvarez comments are even more interesting. In fact, the reporter had stated a few days ago that the Stamford federation would have in mind to stage several "crazy and oddities" for its fourth and final Big Four of the year.
Behind this will on the part of WWE, there would be the need for the company to have new material to create clips for the future, to be able to package video presentation of the War Games, since almost all the War Games of the past of NXT, had as protagonists all athletes who no longer work in the McMahon federation.
Current Intercontinental Champion Gunther recently broke silence on his controversial loss when he made his first main roster appearance at Survivor Series 2019 representing Team NXT. "Yeah, that's just how things go sometimes.
There's not much you can say. There was a decision that was made and you go along with it and try to make the best out of it. I don't think it was negative... When I started doing my bit in that match and then getting eliminated early, I think that did something to me... I think it added to my popularity in that sense because a lot of people spoke about it."
