Looking back I guess they wanted to push the Nation to the next level and it worked out for them thanks to the feud with D-Generation X (which may have been a result of long term thinking thanks to the Owen-Triple H rivalry). Well, everyone except Owen, who was just left floundering in rubbish feuds with Dan Severn and Steve Blackman.
The Nation Of Domination stopped being about 'Black Supremacy' by the time The Rock took over, then it became more about protecting him and his IC title, so by the time a Owen joined it didn't really matter.
