The WarGames match was a gimmick match used originally by NWA (National Wrestling Alliance) later by WCW (World Championship Wrestling) mostly at their September Pay Per View event Fall Brawl.


Structure

Two rings, side by side, enclosed by a cage with a roof.

Rules

Two teams of 5 (shortened to 4 in later matches) face each other in which you can only win by making a member of the other team submit, (tap out or verbally submit) or surrender, (give up/quit). No pin falls, no disqualifications, no escaping the cage, no time limit. But you cannot win the match until all members of each team have entered the match.

Order of entry

Each team starts with 1 man in the match who fight for five minutes. After five minutes, a coin toss is held to decide which team can send their next man, gaining the advantage by making the match 2 on 1. The teams then alternate sending a man in every two minutes. The match going 2 on 2, 3 on 2, 3 on 3 etc. Once all men from each team are in the match, the The Match Beyond begins where a team can then win by making a member of the other team submit, (tap out or verbally submit) or surrender, (give up/quit).
