THE RAGE IN THE CAGE where the New World Order took on the Four Horsemen in the main event. Instead of Fall Brawl 1997 being an event where World Championship Wrestling managed to grab an solid win over the nWo, The Horsemen fell due to Curt Hennig turning on his own team:

Curt Hennig became the newest member of The Four Horsemen after Arn Anderson announced his retirement and hand-picked Curt to take his place as “The Enforcer”. This incarnation of The Horsemen (Ric Flair, Curt Hennig, Chris Benoit and Steve “Mongo” McMichael) did not last long as the War Games match happened only a few weeks after Hennig joined, effectively killing off The Horsemen stable completely for over a full year.
