The War Games Rules Are Discussed
The War Games match consist of two teams of four men each facing off with each other in staggered entry format.
The setup of the cage consists of two rings side by side with a giant ring-encompassing rectangular cage that covered both rings, but not the ringside area. Doors are placed at far corners of the rectangular cage so that the two teams can’t come into contact before they are supposed to.
The War Games match consists of several periods. The first one-on-one fight in 5 minutes and all remaining competitors from both teams are each two minutes long.
The match begin with one member of each team entering the cage. After five minutes, a member from one of the teams determined by a coin toss, will enter the cage, giving his team the temporary 2-on-1 handicap advantage. After two minutes, a member from the other team would enter to even the odds and giving 2-on-2 tag team advantage fro the next 2 minutes. Entrants alternated between teams every two minutes, giving the coin toss-winning team the temporary advantage in the numbers game before giving the other team the advantage with the freshest man and even odds.
Teams continue to alternate during the 2 minutes periods until all ten men are in the ring.
Once all eight men has entered the cage, what is referred to as “The Match Beyond” begin. Both teams will brawl each other in the cage for as long as it takes until any member of either team submit, surrender, or is knocked out unconscious. There are no pinfalls, no count-outs, and no disqualifications…
