Ozzy Osbourne makes a rare WWE appearance for the Survivor Series War Games.
WWE has turned to Ozzy Osbourne for the proper introduction to tonight’s Survivor Series War Games event.
On Saturday night, the Prince of Darkness kicked off the massive event, which sees the titular match – often styled as the War Games – after his revival under Triple H fans have excited on NXT for years. After making his main roster debut.
The premium live event uses the iconic Black Sabbath track War Pigs as its main theme, continuing a trend from the bout’s black and gold era and giving proceedings an atmospheric opening.
In the opening video, Ozzy can be seen sitting on a throne with footage of the likes of Roman Reigns, The Usos, Seth Rollins, Rhea Ripley, Becky Lynch, Finn Balor and more on the track. .
At the end of the promo, the rock legend said: ‘Welcome to the War Games!’
Fans loved the package, which was shared on social media ahead of time, with one excited viewer tweeting: ‘I have no words I’m speechless with only a few hours to go.’
‘Now that’s an entrance worthy of gods and demons!!! #AllHailOzzy,’ another fan wrote, while a third viewer said: ‘Rude! Who better to kick off the war games than the God of Metal.’
Fans were delighted to see Ozzy inducted, especially after he was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2021, as he humbly said at the time: ‘Thank you so much to the WWE Universe for this award. I don’t deserve it, but thank you anyway.’
Overall the show looked stacked on paper, with a Men’s War Games match pitting The Bloodline against Sheamus’ squad, along with his Brawling Brutus partners Ridge Holland and Butch. Allies include Drew McIntyre and Kevin Owens.
