Chris Jericho Comments on Differences Between AEW, WCW, & WWE’s Versions of WarGames
The New York Post held a recent interview with Chris Jericho. One of the topics discussed included Jericho’s thoughts on the differences between AEW’s version of WarGames and WCW and WWE’s versions of the same match type.
“Our apparatus, if you will, is different. We are putting it in Daily’s Place so there were some configurations you kind of had to switch around a bit just out of space restrictions, which kind of adds to the originality of our match and our structure. If you watched WarGames back in 1992, it’s a little different from that and if you saw kind of WWE’s bastardized version, it’s different from that. We kind of have a little bit of a different thing. Some of it is by design, some of it is from necessity.”
