Chris Jericho Reveals Elimination Chamber Was Born Out Of Nixed WarGames Resurrection

During an interview with Adam Cole on his Talk is Jericho podcast, Chris Jericho revealed that the original plan for the WWE Elimination Chamber was actually to resurrect the WarGames concept.

“When we had our Blood & Guts WarGames match, I watched your WarGames match just to try and get some ideas of a modern day version.”

“You can watch the ones from the ’80s, which is one mindset, then I watched your guys’ version, great job, great match. Just a little tidbit, Elimination Chamber was originally going to be WarGames, but Vince didn’t want to do WarGames because he said it was too WCW, so then we created our own. Hunter (Triple H) always wanted to do WarGames, and then he brings it to NXT and there you go.”

Adam Cole responded with some tidbits about his experience in WarGames.

“That was so awesome because I actually just arrived in NXT.”

“My first appearance there was at a Takeover. The next Takeover was the first WarGames so was thrown right into the fire there, but man, I was so pumped. I was such a fan of those matches and watching those matches, and then thinking about, like what you said, how to modernize it in some ways, was really interesting.”

“And I liked that, so far in NXT, I’ve been and the Undisputed Era has been in every single WarGames match, so it’s been cool and challenging to make it a little bit different. I felt this way every single time where right before the match starts, the sirens go off and the cage’s lowering and getting set up, and just the buzz in the arena was always a little bit different. They were like, oh, we’re gonna see some violence. I am terrified of heights, so the fact that I’ve somehow ended up getting thrown off the top in every single one was a little disheartening.”
