Triple H Pitched WWE Survivor Series WarGames Match To Vince McMahon

The Cerebral Assassin wanted WarGames in 2019

The WarGames match will make its WWE main roster debut at this weekend's Survivor Series. 

However, the match was considered for the 2019 version of the event, according to current WWE Senior Vice President of Live Events Brian 'Road Dogg' James. 

Speaking on his Oh...You Didn't Know podcast, the WWE Hall of Famer noted that Paul 'Triple H' Levesque pitched a tri-branded WarGames bout between Raw, SmackDown and NXT Superstars three years ago. 

Speaking about The Game's affinity for the gimmick, James said: 

"He's always wanted to do that, he's had that in mind, and that's why we started doing it down there. But yeah, he wanted to do it there. It just wasn't time yet. And so I don't disagree with that, we hadn't had one yet. I don't think we had had one yet, maybe we had at that point".

NXT had previously held WarGames matches in 2017 and 2018. Two more WarGames matches took place on a TakeOver event the night before Survivor Series 2019.

Continuing, James said:

"But I feel like Hunter liked that match a lot more than Vince did. And I think Vince thinks, and rightfully so by the way, this cannot be argued with, it does step on Hell in a Cell a little bit. Like you can't have those two close together because it's a huge cage match and a huge cage match and how do you promote and keep special one or the other? So it is a debate to be had.

"But yeah, Hunter always thought that WarGames was a great, you know, one of Dusty's creations that was awesome. And he wanted to carry it forward. So yeah, he always had that idea".
