– During a recent edition of his podcast, WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle discussed the appeal of the traditional Survivor Series match versus the WarGames match. Angle stated the following on WarGames (via Fightful)

“I mean, you know, Survivor Series was always the four-on-four. I do get it, you do want to change it up. I mean, I think that Survivor Series is probably the most unimportant top four pay-per-view of the year and I think because the four-on-four, it’s not that appealing. You know, there’s no World Championship going on in that match. It was just four vs. four, and the WarGames match was from WCW. I thought that was a great idea. It’s a great gimmick match. People love it, you want to do what people love.”

Today’s WWE Survivor Series 2022 event will feature separate men and women’s WarGames matches. It will be the first time WarGames is featured on the main WWE roster. The event will be broadcast live on Peacock later today in the US. It will be available on WWE Network everywhere else.
