Kevin Nash, Scott Hall, Hollywood Hogan and Sean Waltman to be inducted as a group
ESPN have announced that one of the biggest factions during the Monday Night Wars will be inducted into the 2020 WWE Hall Of Fame.
The New World Order will join the likes of the Four Horsemen and D-Generation X as teams inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame.
It will be the second Hall of Fame honors for each of the four men recognized as part of the nWo. Hogan was inducted as an individual in 2005, followed by Hall in 2014 and Nash in 2015. Waltman was honored as part of D-Generation X in 2019.
Hogan spoke to ESPN about the honour, saying;
“You’ve got four guys that were basically going at Vince as a shoot, pushing hard to actually try to take over. Not put him out of business but basically take his spot and be the No. 1 company. All of a sudden, you’re inducting four guys in the Hall of Fame that 20 years ago were trying to stab you in the back. It’s like Vince says: In the WWE, never say never.”
The nWo began in 1996 with Kevin Nash and Scott Hall “invading” WCW, leading upto the shocking reveal of Hulk Hogan being the third man at Bash at The Beach, turning him into the villainous Hollywood Hogan. The group gained Sean Waltman as ‘Syxx’ in 1997. They also had other notable members such as Ted DiBiase, The Giant AKA The Big Show and ‘Macho Man’ Randy Savage.
The 2020 Hall of Fame will take place on Thursday, April 2nd.
