During a recent episode of 83 Weeks, Eric Bischoff explained why he he believed that Wargames was a flawed concept, citing the main issue that it didn’t lead to a bigger payoff. Here’s what he had to say:
It’s not that I didn’t like the concept of War Games. Kind of cool, kind of makes sense. But you pointed out the Royal Rumble – the outcome of Royal Rumble sets the stage of what’s going to happen for the next six or eight months, theoretically, or it used to. War Games didn’t have that element. It was a spectacle. It was different and very unique in its own way. But that alone I don’t think made War Games really that viable. And since it wasn’t the pay per view that helped set the tone for what was to come, it was really just – I hate to say it – it was just another pay per view that was unique in the format. But regardless of what happened in War Games, other than ending storylines and beginning some others, it was just another pay per view. But it was pretty cool and it was unique. Back then, it was kind of cutting edge.
