— WWE sent out another survey to the WWE Universe over the weekend asking fans for input on yet another Pay-Per-Vie event being renamed. This time, its Judgment Day. WWE fans were given the following names to choose from:
- Judgment Day
- Riot Control
- War Games
War Games was a tag-team cage match concept that originated in the NWA (and was later used in WCW).

In his latest blog at JRsBarBQ.com, Jim Ross commented on the talk that War Games might be coming to WWE. Ross said:
I read on line where WWE was kicking around the “War Games” theme for a possible return to PPV. I think that’s a good idea as the traditional “War Games” concept was two teams of five and the bad guys winning every coin toss in existence which allowed them to always start with a 2 on 1 advantage. No, I don’t endorse that “every match be a War Games match” but I do think that it makes for a cool theme name and having one “War Games” bout would be marketable if the table was set correctly with the right talents that all had organic reasons to be “teammates.” Please read this carefully and don’t go into business for yourself inasmuch as I’m saying that this is going to happen but that it was merely something that I read being discussed on line and we all know all those things can be at times.
