On changes WWE will be making to the WarGames match:
HHH: Anytime you’ve had twenty years since you did something you have the opportunity to do it but do it in a slightly modified way. Whether that’s making it better? I don’t want to say things needed to be fixed but I think there were a few things that we had concerns about. We wanted to change those, tweak things up and it works for us in this three team scenario because of the way the storyline was written. When the opportunity came up to do WarGames the storyline naturally fit with the three groups being in there. Does that change the initial concept? Yeah, in some ways but to me it’s about WarGames and teams going to war. That’s really what this storyline entails. We didn’t have teams of five. You’d have to mix things up and kind of hodge podge some things. As far as some of the components of the match like putting a roof on it and things like that? We aren’t going to have a roof. I think it’s a little bit limiting. The style has changed. I am not saying nobody isn’t going to do it in this match but I think going forward as to what WarGames becomes. I try to think about the future. Arn Anderson wasn’t doing moonsaults off the top of the cage. There’s a difference in how the business is done and I think this allows them a different opportunity to do some things.
