Abstract

This blog post revisits the War Games format of professional wrestling, applying Strauss' notion of binary oppositions to examine how the 1989 Great American Bash and 2017 NXT TakeOver: War Games events constructed meaning and defined differing levels of engagement and bodily co-presence with the wrestled television text.
