Just to elaborate on born_angry's answer:

A blue cage can be seen in the following photos,incase you are still
in the dark about what it is....

WWF (and other promotions) used this style cage for quite some time.

A triple cage (as BA said) is a 3 cage set-up,over one ring.It was used
by Kevin Sullivan a long time ago,and then seen (modernly) in both late
WCW (Arquette's match with DDP and Jarrett) and in WCW's Ready To
Rumble movie (also with Arquette and DDP).

War Games is the double ring,bigger cage,set-up.That was always WCW's
deal,and more recently was used by MLW in a less than average match....

the reason they changed was to give it more of a ufc feel and apparanetly it looks better on camera

but i bet it's harder to climb

Just to add to the explanation of the triple cage, and get rid of the Arquette association with it, there was another triple cage match at Nitro in Dallas featuring 6 or 8 guys. Off the top of my head I remember Nash, Sting, Jarrett, Booker T, and Steiner in there.

The structure is like a hell in a cell with a regular cage on top of it. Then on the very top is a smaller cage with the title belt hanging over the top of it. You have to use a ladder to get from the bottom up to the second one, the second one has weapons hanging from the walls, and the top cage is pretty useless. To win you must get the belt from the top and get all the way out of the door in the bottom cage.

Actually it was because you can do more in the ring with a chicken wire type cage than with solid steel. Which would you rather bump off?

And basically if you are athletic then you can climb chain link fences. If you can't then you probably shouldn't be wrestling anyways.

Surprisingly (or maybe not) alot of guys can't climb up that type of cage.

I remember when Foley did the one cage/cell match,they had to
cut holes in the cage for him to put his feet into when making the
climb up the cage....

Last time I remember the old blue bar cage used was Unforgiven 99 for the Kennel from Hell match, but I'm CERTAIN they used it quite recently, within the last couple of years.

He climbed it before they put those holes in though. Rikishi would never had made it to the top had it not been for those holes and that's my point.
