Scott Hall and Kevin Nash Comment on Who Should Induct the nWo Into WWE’s Hall of Fame
A recent episode of the After The Bell with Corey Graves podcast had Scott Hall and Kevin Nash as the guests. One of the topics discussed included who Hall and Nash would pick to induct the New World Order into WWE’s Hall of Fame.
Scott Hall – “I guess, from a fan’s point of view, maybe they wouldn’t agree but from somebody who’s behind the curtain, I would think Eazy E. I would think Eric Bischoff because the whole thing was his idea, but I guess if you’re a viewing fan, you don’t see it that way. That’s the way I see it. I would have Bischoff up there with us.”
Kevin Nash – “I would have Kevin Sullivan. Yeah, because Sullivan was the guy that basically… though it was Eric’s idea, Sullivan was the one that made sure… there’s always been the equation that if you’re a heel, in order for you to be successful it’s like a hot air balloon and the more heat that you allow inside that balloon, the higher it goes and the more valuable that heel energy is, and Sullivan just really battled day in, day out to make sure that they didn’t take heat off us, and nobody got through the n.W.o. and Sullivan always books heat and he continued to book heat and his booking of that heat is what made the nWo.”

WWE Network Airing FCW Documentary Next Month
WWE announced that a new documentary special based on Florida Championship Wrestling will be airing on the WWE Network on March 8th.
Prior to NXT, FCW was WWE’s primary developmental system from 2007 to 2012.
Before NXT and the world-class WWE Performance Center, there was Florida Championship Wrestling, WWE’s no-frills talent-development system that, despite its humble settings, gave rise to some of this era’s most dominant Superstars, from Sheamus and Roman Reigns to Seth Rollins and The Bella Twins.
For the first time ever, you can learn about the legacy of FCW from those who shaped it when A Future WWE: The FCW Story premieres Sunday, March 8, on the award-winning WWE Network.
The documentary, which was first revealed during The Celtic Warrior’s appearance on today’s edition of WWE’s The Bump, will feature new interviews with the Superstars and coaches who built FCW from the ground up, as well as never-before-seen, behind-the-scenes footage.
