Survivor Series 2023 Women’s WarGames match :
Bianca Belair , Charlotte Flair , Shotzi and Becky Lynch vs. Damage CTRL ( Bayley , Asuka , Iyo Sky and Kairi Sane)
Becky Lynch and Bayley opened hostilities. At a time when Becky applied a Disarmer to Bayley , Dakota Kai appeared outside the cage to attack the Irishwoman using a kendo stick. Shotzi joined the party and took a trash can and several chairs with her. And when Bayley was being brutally attacked, Iyo Sky arrived on the scene and took a chain with her.
Bianca Belair returned the numerical advantage to the babyface team and Kairi Sane restored equality.
In the end, Charlotte Flair and Asuka remained, with the Japanese woman entering right after Iyo Sky had crawled into a trash can and jumped on everyone from the top of the cage to the inside of the ring.
With the WarGames officially underway, it was Charlotte Flair ‘s turn to perform a Moonsault from the top of the structure down, knocking down opponents and teammates.
Meanwhile, Charlotte Flair and Becky Lynch applied several double teams and hugged in the center of the ring, a sign of reconciliation after years of difficult relationship. And, after everyone had applied their main blows to Bayley , Becky Lynch ended the matter with a Manhandle Slam on Bayley from the top rope onto a table, moving towards the settlement afterwards.
Winners : Bianca Belair , Charlotte Flair , Shotzi and Becky Lynch

Men’s Survivor Series 2023 WarGames match :
Cody Rhodes, Seth “Freakin” Rollins, Jey Uso, Sami Zayn and Randy Orton vs.
The Judgment Day (Damian Priest, Finn Bálor, “Dirty” Dominik Mysterio and JD McDonagh) and Drew McIntyre
At a time when Randy Orton was not yet present, Seth Rollins and Finn Bálor opened hostilities.
Then JD McDonagh joined the party, giving Judgment Day an advantage and introducing kendo sticks into the ring, but Jey Uso reestablished numerical equality and returned momentum to the babyface team.
Damian Priest’s entry put Judgment Day back in numerical advantage and back on the ascendant, but Sami Zayn ‘s entry brought renewed energy to his team, namely through the introduction of a table at the introduction of the structure.
This was followed by the entrance of Drew McIntyre, who, after knocking down whoever appeared in front of him, went to meet Jey Uso, who also went to the mat. However, Cody Rhodes returned momentum to his team and introduced a bullrope into the fight, in honor of his father.
The arrival of Dominik Mysterio once again unbalanced the fight for a few moments, even though he then suffered at the hands of all four opponents.
And, at a time when Judgment Day dominated and Damian Priest had just Powerbombed Seth Rollins onto a table, the countdown to Randy Orton’s entrance ended without Orton appearing, which led Rhea Ripley to take the Money in the Bank suitcase close to the cage so that Priest could cash in. However, Orton appeared there, making a big return to the ring after about a year and a half of absence.
After Zayn and Rollins threw McDonagh from the top of the cage into an area where Randy Orton was to apply the RKO , Cody Rhodes gave his team the victory with a Cross Rhodes on Damian Priest.
Winners: Cody Rhodes, Seth “Freakin” Rollins, Jey Uso, Sami Zayn and Randy Orton
