Default What if the NWO angle started in the WWF?

Obviously we all know how the NWO angle went down with WCW, and the boys jumping ship from the WWF at the time. However let's reverse things. What two men from WCW would you have do what Hall, and Nash did when they invaded the WCW? Obviously you have to have a third man as well. This may sound crazy, but I think Austin, and Pillman would have been fucking awesome. Both eventually left for the WWF. It would have been better than The Ringmaster for sure, and who knows we could have gotten a heel version of Austin as a Hollywood Blonde. He, and Pillman were gold with that act. The "Stunning" Steve character could have easily rolled over to Stone Cold no different than the Ringmaster did.

Pillman still could have been the "Loose Cannon" as well. Those two could have made just as much noise as Hall, and Nash did. Both Austin, and Pillman were a very popular heel tag team when they were together. Each guy could carry the mic, and carry it well. There is no doubt in my mind they would have been perfect. As for the leader, and the surprise member I would have to go with Sid Vicious. He was main eventing back then, and was rather popular. He was formerly of WCW as well, and I think this would have made it look as though it was started from the inside. What are your thoughts?

Hall and Nash were main event acts who got paired with the biggest wrestling star of all time. WWE couldn't match that, nor could they match the undertone of "invaders from up north" because there wasn't this resistance to the other style of wrestling that was ingrained in the WCW product. Would not have been as good.

If the exact same NWO was created at this stage, then I have no doubt, no matter how good it could have been, it would still be shat all over because that's all ye bitches do.

Yes, and some people crapped on the NWO back then too.

The internet wrestling community is made of a variety of people with a variety of different opinions. Why people try to pretend like it's some hivemind that all thinks the same thing I will never understand.

well, I'll go ahead and assume it's 1996

Bret was gone for the year, so it'd have to be Shawn Michaels being the 3rd man. Hall was the top mid carder in the WWE, Austin wasn't that far removed from being a US champion, he could do. But you'd need a WCW main eventer that was cool, and I don't think there's any WCW guy that would fit the bill

it wasn't just that they invaded WCW, the Outsiders, both Hall and Nash were perceived as incredibly cool. Cool is what made the NWO

It couldn't be done without Hogan.

I wanted to say Luger and Sting jump ship and play the "Outsiders" role. Luger and Sting were best friends at the top of the card just like Hall and nash. they also got that "cool" factor as they showed in the Wolfpac. Third man of course being Hogan as well. Eventually, Savage could have joined them.

But then I realized that Luger just went back to WCW a year earlier, so that would have never happened. A cool scenario to think about still.
NWO (Hogan, Savage, Sting and Luger) vs WWF (Bret, Shawn, Diesel and Taker)
