Chicago was the scene for the final premium live event on the WWE calendar this year. The 2023 edition of Survivor Series: War Games featured the iconic WCW staple of a double-ring cage match for two marquee bouts on the card. On the men's side, Randy Orton finally made his return to the ring, as he helped Cody Rhodes, Seth Rollins, Jey Uso and Sami Zayn defeat The Judgment Day stable of Damian Priest, Finn Bálor, "Dirty" Dominik Mysterio and JD McDonagh, along with special guest Drew McIntyre.
But the biggest moment of the night came after the main event as hometown hero CM Punk officially made his return to WWE. As the five competitors celebrated in the ring serenaded by Rhodes' music, the dynamic changed instantly as Cult of Personality hit and Punk walked out to a tremendous ovation.
Opening the show, Team Bianca (Belair, Charlotte Flair, Shotzi and Becky Lynch) defeated Damage CTRL (Bayley, Iyo Sky, Kairi Sane and Asuka). Both teams exchanged incredible moves off the top of the cage.
Two title fights also took place inside Allstate Arena, as Gunther retained his Intercontinental title against The Miz and Rhea Ripley withstood a stiff challenge from Zoey Stark to keep the women's World championship around her waist.
