The $W$-boson pair production in $e^-e^-$ collisions with polarized beams is investigated. The helicity amplitudes are derived for general couplings and the conditions for a good high-energy behaviour of the cross-section are given. The results are applied to the heavy vector boson production in the context of the left-right symmetric model. The Ward identities and the equivalence theorem are also discussed.
