War Games Match Unlikely For New WWE Battleground PPV, Final RAW Rating

Posted by Matt Boone July 30, 2013 3 Comments

-Upon hearing the news that WWE changed the name of their upcoming October pay-per-view show to “Battleground,” many fans had speculated that the old “War Games” match from WCW would be used at the event. While such a match would seem to be an organic fit on a show called Battleground, it appears that there will not be a War Games match on the card.

The seating chart for the building that the event will be held in was recently released, and did not include a set-up that would accomodate two rings. Additionally, the WWE Hell In A Cell pay-per-view takes place after Battleground, on October 27th, and the idea of having two gimmick-matches in a steel cage on back-to-back WWE PPVs is highly unlikely.

-The Monday, July 29th taped-edition of WWE RAW scored a final cable rating of 2.87, according to Nielsen Media Research. The 2.87 final draw is down from last week’s 2.94 cable rating.

      Too bad, War Games was better than most of the Lame WWE PPV’s.

      Hey! Here’s an idea…get rid of Hell in a Cell and replace it with another gimmick but meaningful ppv, like…KING OF THE RING!!!

      P.P. Johnny was in Vince’s deaf ears for years to revive the War Games. It’s a great gimmick match.
