Looking at the graphics for War Games on Saturday, the double cage doesn't appear to have a roof, instead looking like a typical WWE cage.

In another variation, the wrestlers will be locked in shark cages on the stage.

Ta fortunately I found that and have started listening to the replacement shows. Genuinely impressed they managed to get a review out on the day they got made redundant. I'd definitely support them.on Patreon if they decided to go independent.

I thought the same but I'm assuming they are looking for new work in the same field and don't want a conflict of interest going in?

Jennifer Hudson and David Otunga have split. That’ll be another future endeavor soon then, the guy is useless.

Triple H has confirmed War Games tomorrow won't have a roof. Now if you believe him it's because it was too limiting in terms of moves. If you believe Bryan Alvarez it's because Vince McMahon refused it (which I can't really fathom why - too much like Hell in a Cell?)

Will reserve judgement until I see the match. I would have liked if they kept it but just raised it to properly allow moves off the top rope.

I assume war games is actually Sunday at 1am and not in a couple of hours?

Technically, yes.

One of those TV schedule quirks I suppose.

Slightly concerned something has gone wrong with my Network subscription, as I've just been sent an e-mail informing me I'm eligible for a free month... :?

Looking forward to tonight and tomorrow night. For once I'm actually more excited about the main roster PPV. Really disappointed Gargano vs. Dunne is a dark match and going to be shown on NXT next week (adverts :x). Find it bizarre Andrade is in the title picture. It's doubtful we're going to get another Japanese female champion so soon after Asuka, and I want Ember Moon to win the least, and it's looking like she's the most likely to win (my preferred order: Kairi > Nikki > Peyton >>>>>>>>> Ember Moon). I'm sure it'll be a great match, but I know the ending will sour me. But hopefully Kairi hits that amazing off the top rope elbow onto someone. There are a lot of people I'm looking forward to seeing in action, but not necessarily in these matches. I'm a fan of Black and Ohno, not so much their opponents. The actual War Games match should be fun though.

I randomly stumbled onto some YouTube videos of Blue Pants impersonating other wrestler's entrances (much better than Ziggler), my highlights definitely Nakamura, Omega and Taker. Well worth seeking out.

The two ring set-up should hopefully make for some unique action throughout the night that we haven't seen in a long time. Sting used to jump from one right to the other, and matches used to start in one ring and end up concluding in another.

Really don' think understand the push for Sullivan.

I wonder if we'll see any regular matches switch rings midway through.

What is that irritating noise in the background, someone in the crowd playing the drums like at a football match?

This ref looks like he's spent the night in a tin of Ronseal fence paint.

What a great match with 2 great characters! Shows what can be done with a slow build about something as basic as one guy wanting the other to say his name! Helps that the crowd was super hot for it too. Both Black and Dream hopefully have big things ahead for them, both have NXT championship potential.

State of the tan on the ref though! :lol:

I love Black so much. Don't think that'll be topped tonight.

That ref... it looked more like blackface than a tan.

Gutted. Every time she sticks her tongue out. :x I literally hate that tongue more than Roman Reigns. Great match though... :shifty:

Sane hit the top rope elbow drop. :wub:

That long haired guy is sitting in front of the primary ring, annoyingly. I swear he must be the CEO of Ticketmaster or something. :x

Yeah that guy, sign guy, Brock Lesnar lad, the guy with the WWE blazer(who is also there tonight) always stick out like sore thumbs, I’m guessing if you buy enough WWE stock you get perks like first dibs on tickets for every show? That’s my guess anyways!
