PAIGE and AJ LEE Ass Pics *Must-See*

- Bad news fans – WWE will not be resurrecting the ‘WCW WarGames’ concept for it’s new Battleground pay-per-view in October, despite fan speculation (or hope perhaps). A seating chart released for the event also wouldn’t allow for a two-ring setup which is required to make the concept work.

There was talk about the famous concept being brought back considering the Battleground name alludes to such a concept, and with HHH reportedly being a fan. The feeling however is that it won’t happen, especially since the very next pay-per-view is Hell in a Cell, and two steel cage gimmick match PPV’s in a row is likely to be overkill.

    I have no issue with fans of WCW, but saying they had the best matches is just delirious, if anything that honour goes to ECW.

    It was ECW that changed the face of wrestling from 1994 onwards (fact!) by becoming “edgy & different” which WWE would later rip off & re christen “attitude”.

    Also a lot of WCW’s top guys came from other promotions on either a big pay check (Nash/Hall/Hogan & Bret Hart) or were stolen away (Malenko, Guerrero, Benoit, Mysterio from ECW). The only exceptions i can think of were Goldberg & Sting. WCW was just a company full of former employees, no originality (hell anybody remember Dustin Rhodes as “Seven” or Somebody imitating JR?)

    At least ECW had the guts to do something different & it worked, sure they werent loaded like ted turners WCW or Vinces WWE, but they had a massive impact on wrestling even to this day.

    Bottom line: ECW > WWF/E > WCW (all had there ups and downs)

    WCW was underated for all their good concept and matches brought in the 90” WarGames was great world war 3 was great and the lucha libre matches where so amazing having usa canada latin american japan and all around the world wrestlers back then was amazing i wish Tna and ROH could both be smath work as one and rebuild a wcw wrestling federation cause right now no competition even if wwe product got better in the last months.

    Now everybody finding out how great WCW was for wrestling. Nobody had better matches then WCW not ECW or WWF. I do love WWE but still feel WCW was WWE best rival. If they had push there young guys better WCW would be around today. Yes I do miss WCW.

    lol, love the misleading title… of course they wont bring it back. I highly doubt Vince would do it since its a WCW idea.

    Although if by some miracle they did, they could do it at hell in a cell, would make sense, double cell to go with it.
