What if Hall & Nash never left in 1996?
First and foremost let me say that I'm sure this thread has been done at least once before. But last week I bought a VHS copy of "nWo: Back In Black" for $7.99 (for anybody who cares) and just got around to watching it today. Anyways, toward the beginning Scott Hall said that he didn't want to leave the WWF, but had to do what he felt was best for his family. So that got me to thinking what would the wrestling world be like if Scott "Razor Ramon" Hall and Kevin "Diesel" Nash stayed with the WWF in 1996 instead of jumping ship.
Obviously, the nWo was one of the main reasons for the 90's boom period for wrestling. The Outsiders were a huge piece to that puzzle of the birth of the nWo. In the same sense in my mind the nWo also made WCW a lot more watchable (well the early days of the nWo at least). I'm sure Hulk Hogan would of retired from full-time competition by the time 1998 rolled around. WCW would of probably have more of a feel that TNA currently has. By my guesses WCW would of been strictly about Bill Goldberg, Sting and the Cruiserweights. While Goldberg and Sting were big deals nonetheless. Without the nWo I could see Goldberg of being some major heel by 1999 and the streak would of probably went longer than it did.
Back to Hall & Nash though. I don't think they would of always had their Razor Ramon and Diesel names by the mid/late 90s if they stayed with the WWF. Eventually, I think their names would of been changed to strictly Scott Hall and Kevin Nash. D-Generation X to an extent probably would of never happened or at least the name. Think The Kliq would eventually have an on-air stable together. Guys like The Outlaws would of been their own team. I could of seen a Kliq/Hart Foundation feud going strong by mid-1997. Also, that would leave me to have doubts about Sean Waltman jumping to WCW as well. He would of been more of I guess the Brian Pillman (not a Loose Cannon, more or less the equivalent toward Pillman in the Hart Foundation) of the Kliq.
WWF Attitude would of still happened, as that was more thanks to ECW. But WCW as a whole would of been a different product.
What would be your thoughts if Hall & Nash stayed with the WWF?
