Original Plans For NXT Takeover: War Games, WWE Takes A Look At Kane’s Career

NXT Takeover: War Games

– As we noted before, WWE announced the return of War Games for the upcoming NXT Takeover event during the Survivor Series weekend, though it appears it wasn’t what the company originally had in mind.

According to Wrestling Observer Newsletter, the original plans for the event were for SAnitY to defend the NXT Tag titles against Kyle O’Reilly & Bobby Fish in a regular tag team match.

It’s not known what caused the plans to change but as reported previously now there will be a War Games match between Sanity, The Undisputed Era (Adam Cole, Bobby Fish and Kyle O’Reilly) and The Authors of Pain with Roderick Strong at the event

Additionally, Drew McIntyre was expected to defend his NXT Championship against Adam Cole at the upcoming NXT Show but he will now face Andrade ‘Cien’ Almas instead.

– While Kane had wrestled for WWE before using various gimmicks, he made his debut as the ‘Big Red Monster’ during the Badd Blood PPV on October 5th, 1997.

Yesterday marked 20 years of his debut and WWE remembered it by posting the following photo story from their official Instagram account in which they take a look at his career:
