5.0 out of 5 stars WAR GAMES THE MATCH BEYOND June 6, 2013
By Tom
Format:DVD
Even though this hasn't been released yet I have seen all the matches on this DVD set and I will be able to tell you about them now. First of all, I always liked the War Games match and the concept. It was a great way to settle feuds and I am a little surprised that the WWE has never used the match (but then again, if Vince didn't think of it then it must not be good enough).

The first match that you get is the very first War Games match from the Great American Bash Tour in 1987. It features Ric Flair, Arn Anderson, Tully Blanchard, Lex Luger and JJ Dillion taking on Dusty Rhodes, Nikita Koloff, The Road Warriors and Paul Ellering. This was a great match with lots of action and lots of blood. Flair was always great in these matches and he shows why here. I liked seeing the Road Warriors in this one as well. Very well done match from start to finish. The only downside is the managers, JJ Dillion and Paul Ellering, because you just knew it would be one of them that would lose the match for the team and sure enough that's what happened. Still, a very good match.

The second match is either the second or the third War Games match, I'm not sure which. It features: Ric Flair, Arn Anderson, Tully Blanchard, Lex Luger and the War Machine taking on Dusty Rhodes, Nikita Koloff, The Road Warriors and Paul Ellering. This match again was violent and bloody but I didn't think it was as good as the first War Games match. This was to be a return match but JJ was hurt so they added the War Machine to the mix. Again, the match was good but not as good as the first one which I believe was actually first runner up to the match of the year in 1987.

The third match that you get blows my mind as to why it's even on this set because it's not a War Games match.

3.0 out of 5 stars The great, the good and sadly the bad of War Games September 14, 2013
Format:Blu-ray
A multi-cage, multi-ring set up where combatants are locked in to settle their differences once and for all, this became known as the War Games Match. It started in the NWA Jim Crockett Promotions, grew bigger when WCW bought the company and was a part of WCW until they closed their doors in 2001. The idea is two men start out and there's a coin flip (which is usually if not always won by the bad guys) to determine who gets the one man advantage, once all 10 are in it is Submit or Surrender to determine a winner. This is a 2-Disc set featuring 17 brutal matches, with a variety of competitors, hosted by Dusty Rhodes, he takes us through the history before and after each match.

-7/4/87, Great American Bash, The Road Warriors, Dusty Rhodes, Nikita Koloff & Paul Ellering vs. Ric Flair, Lex Luger, Arn Anderson, Tully Blanchard & J.J. Dillion: This was built around Dusty's issues with all members of the Four Horsemen including their manager J.J. Dillion. For being the first, this was pretty brutal, the coin flip advantage goes to the Horsemen team and from then on the action stays at a good pace, the crowd is hot for Dusty's team to win for sure. Anderson and Rhodes do shine here and most everyone gets their spots in. Some blood in this one and some hard hits including one to end the match where the man who took it said he wasn't the same for a good while. 9/10.

-7/31/87, Great American Bash, The Road Warriors, Dusty Rhodes, Nikita Koloff & Paul Ellering vs. Ric Flair, Lex Luger, Arn Anderson, Tully Blanchard & The War Machine: Long time fans may recognize the masked War Machine as Ray Taylor (aka the Big Bossman in WWE), this was much like the previous match in that Dusty and the Horsemen were the focus.
