Now I'm sure many heard the big news that dropped on Wednesday.

For the first time since 2000, we are going to bear witness to WarGames. And it seems as though many fans all over the internet are filled with excitement and are thrilled over the decision to hold the match in a WWE ring for the first time ever.

However, this news leaves me very concerned. The wrestling fan base has changed dramatically since WarGames was a hot commodity in WCW. In addition to that, there are many match types that were popular when wrestling was in the big boom periods that have been done in present time and nine times out of ten, it fell flat on it's face. 

The thing about WarGames is that the rules and booking philosophies behind it make things very constrained, and overall, I don't think it is going to translate well with today's fans in today's era. I know I've heard the idea expressed that these matches have to be booked a certain way - the heels get the advantage, gang up on the face(s), then the next face comes out (like a hot tag), repeat. It just always seemed so constrained and limiting, and I think once the match comes around, that is going to become a very common complaint amongst many fans.

I'm not saying the match itself will be bad, as there is some great talent involved, but this match has never been done in a WWE ring, meaning many of the bookers have never been in a situation where they have to put a match such as WarGames all together. What leaves me even more concerned is that there's no Dusty Rhodes to be involved with booking as this was one of many brainchildren of his.

So as it stands now, I don't think this is going to work and unless I am proven wrong, it should never be done in WWE again after this upcoming TakeOver.
