While it’s exciting that the NWO is going in the WWE Hall of Fame this year for this year’s Wrestlemania, it is a bummer that Eric Bischoff is not going to be included in the induction when he should. Why should Bischoff be included? Well for starters, Eric created the iconic stable/wrestling faction himself. The nWo aka the New World Order was all his idea and it was all his idea to have Hogan, Hall and Nash as the group’s first three guys. Hall and Nash were the first announced in the group but they got started as the Outsiders at first then Hulk Hogan was revealed as the third guy later which was a historic moment in WCW. That was when Hogan turned heel for the first time which was important in wrestling history.
Other reasons Bischoff deserves to be in the induction with the NWO at the Hall of Fame is that Bischoff was the leader of the group on WCW TV back in the day. Bischoff had a lot of historic moments with the group back in the 90’s and early 2000’s years when WCW used to be around. It was Bischoff that helped the nWo become the iconic wrestling faction that it is today. The NWO are the greatest wrestling faction/group of all time.
I’m trying to watch every episode of WCW Monday Nitro on the WWE Network still and all this NWO stuff is pretty historic TV.
Why isn’t Bischoff in the induction when he should? Does he and McMahon hate each other in real life??? I don’t know… since Vince fired Bischoff from running the RAW brand behind the scenes. Not sure the reasons and Bischoff himself doesn’t know the real reasons behind it. I listen to Bischoff’s podcast 83 weeks but it seems that he isn’t upset at not being included.
Everybody wants Bischoff to be in the WWE Hall of Fame in some way whether it will be in the NWO or be in the Hall of Fame solo but Bischoff himself even said he doesn’t care about being in the Hall of Fame. I remember him saying that he doesn’t really want to be in the Hall of Fame anyways ’cause he doesn’t really think he’s all that big and believes not many people care for him.
Well, Eric, I appreciate you trying to stay humble and honest as possible but you have plenty of fans that love you and respect the hell out of you. Eric is a legend and he doesn’t even realize it to this day. I know I’ve always respected him. When Eric was on WCW TV for Monday Nitro, he played one of the most hated heels in wrestling history. Fans used to hate that man back in the day.
I think Bischoff should be in the WWE Hall of Fame but Vince won’t do it for whatever reason. Maybe the reason Vince won’t have Bischoff in Hall of Fame with NWO is ’cause Bischoff was in the NWO in WCW and not in the NWO when they were in WWE. That could be the reason… but WCW is WWE now that WWE owns WCW. WWE is just starting to induct more WCW stars.
83 Weeks is my favorite wrestling podcast and I listen to it all the time. Even if Eric is not going in the WWE Hall of Fame with the nWo, hopefully he’ll still make a Wrestlemania appearance with them at least. That’s better than nothing.
I know some wrestling fans are sick of the NWO and think they’re old and washed up… blah blah blah. Ya know something? NWO 4 Life isn’t just a slogan. It means they’ll always be around. NWO has been a wrestling faction for 22 years like Hulk’s tweet said and as you can see, they still haven’t changed. Hulk Hogan, Scott Hall and Kevin Nash still look really good together.
Remember, the NWO made their debut in WCW. I’ve been watching a lot of WCW Nitro and I watched the formation of the NWO and it’s very interesting stuff. It all started out with Kevin Nash and Scott aka The Outsiders and they were teasing a third member which they didn’t name for a while. The third man turned out to be Hulk Hogan. The NWO made their formation at the Bash at the Beach ppv in 1996. Yeah, that was 22 years ago and the NWO are still around as you can see. Remember, NWO4Life.
Are they about to make a big WWE return? It seems like it. They are definitely teasing something. Remember, the WWE owns the copyrights and trademarks to the NWO gimmick and the name. The guys can’t use the NWO gimmick anywhere else so it’s definitely seems like they’re making their way back to WWE. Could they make their return at Summerslam this Sunday??? We’ll have to wait and see.
I’m a huge fan of NWO, though. I’ve been watching a lot of WCW Monday Nitro on the WWE Network. Once I finish watching WCW Nitro then I’ll start watching all the old WCW ppvs. I’m almost a 100 episodes in WCW Nitro and still got a lot more to go. WCW is pretty historic stuff. I’m glad Vince McMahon bought WCW. If he didn’t then we wouldn’t be able to watch old WCW on streaming services. WCW wrestling is fucking awesome. Wished I watched it on TV back then.
Wrestling legends Jake the Snake Roberts and Diamond Dallas Page are seen here calling, their old wrestling friend, Scott Hall, trying to talk him into going over to visit them and join them for DDP’s “Accountability Crib”, which I believe is a program where DDP helps wrestlers get clean and sober. They haven’t seen each other in a long time and they want to reunite. If you don’t know who Scott Hall is, he is a former WWE star, used to go under the name of Razor Ramone and he was one of the original founders of the nWo group.
Over the years, Scott has had problems with drugs and alcohol addiction, and you can tell by the way he is talking over the phone.
No matter what you think of Scott Hall, the man is a wrestling legend, and he has had a successful wrestling career. He had many classic wrestling matches. He was a great mic worker and he was a phenomenal wrestler. The man’s got a lot of problems now and it’s amazing to me that he’s still alive.
I think Scott is Hall of Fame worthy, so hopefully WWE inducts him this year too, if not, there’s always next year. Scott has been one of my favorite performers for years, though. It’s a shame how he is now.
Will Jake and Dallas actually reunite with Scott? The video says stay tuned, so it’s a possibility. Can’t wait for the next video.
ESPN’s show E60 will air a special about former WWE/WCW star, Scott Hall, who used to be Razor Ramone, and was one of the founders of the nWo wrestling group. Scott has had a long history of battling his addiction of drugs & alcohol, and he is still having problems to this day. His fellow wrestling friends such as Triple H, Kevin Nash, Eric Bischoff, Hogan and others tried to help Scott get clean & sober, but it was no good. Scott is still having problems as you can see in this video here.
I really hope Scott Hall gets the help he needs before it’s too late, or else he’s going to be next in line of all those dead wrestlers from the past. I’m even surprised the guy is still alive.
Like Scott Hall or not his wrestling career was really legendary. He had many classic matches and created history with professional wrestling over the years. He was also a tremendous performer & wrestler. I hope he gets inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame because he certainly deserves it.
It’s sad what he’s become.
Charlie Sheen should take note. Sheen should look at what Scott Hall is going through. If you don’t know who Scott Hall is, he is a former WWE/WCW star who used to go under the name of Razor Ramone in old school WWF, plus he was one of the founders of the nWo group in WCW.
Here is Scott Hall, performing at some Indy wrestling event in Fall River, M.A. He felt sick and was hospitalized that night. Scott tried to walk to the ring and climb through it but he couldn’t. You can see he has a group of guys helping him to the ring. It’s sad.
You still have to give Scott credit and kudos though. It’s obvious he didn’t care if he was feeling like that, he was committed to performing. He had a lot of guts performing that night even if he was a mess. The show must go on, I guess.
I wish him well. He is an incredible performer, I always admired him in the wrestling business. Get well soon, Chico!
