WCW triple cage
 


alright, this match (especially the ending) is regarded as one of the worst decisions ever made in WCW. was it only the ending that messes everything up or was it just one big cluster-you know what. I actually like the idea to establish a new dominant champion to bring cred back to the belt, but obv things did not work out that way.

discuss, could this match have been a success if it put the right person over in the end?

It's actually an enjoyable match, in a 'WTF is this?' kind of way. But the ending, dear lord.


Dear lord. It was bad. You know you've got to heighten suspense of disbelief a little bit more with this one, but jesus hell there's not even any point because that ending is the biggest troll in pro wrestling this side of Supercena overcoming the odds

The triple cage match is my absolute favorite gimmick match, but it was poorly executed IMO. What is a more badass match type than having 3 cages stacked on top of one another? The cage looked really flimsy at times though, I'm surprised nobody fell through and got injured. Imagine the match with a sturdier build and substitute the wrestlers with great in-ring workers, and it would be a masterpiece.

my thoughts exactly. it is such a big event, it is perfect to get a new guy over and add to a main event scene.

The match is nonsense and a massive clusterfuck.

yes the match gimmick is forever tarnished because of no talent anti drawing hacks like Jeff jarrett and Kevin Nash.

A cage, on top of a cage, on top of a cage! If only there had been a cage on a pole, then it would have been the greatest gimmick match ever.

Seriously though, it was absolutely ridiculous.

Am i the only one who thought Page/Jarrett/Arquette was at least a **** match?

^ Not sure if you're being totally serious, but the DDP/Jarrett/Arquette match is actually pretty good. Not 4 stars but it's a fun main event match, which is rare from WCW at the time. The ending swerve is also hilarious, if only for Schiavone & Hudson's commentary.

The Wargames 2000 Triple Cage match is fun to watch in a "what the absolute fuck is going on?" kind of way. If you consider it from the point of view of being a legit, PPV quality match on Nitro designed to get people and the title belt over, it's a disaster.
