I don't read RAW magazine but I was hanging out at the bookstore and took a peek, and there was a little blurb there about some wrestlers coming to the WWE to reform the LWO, although "LWO" was never mentioned. They hinted at La Parka, Psychosis, and The Villainos(sp?). They also mentioned a WWE superstar who will join/lead them, even though he never wanted to the first time (Eddie or Rey Rey?)

Now here's my question. Does anyone read RAW mag and see shit like this that basically doesn't happen and is meant to just create ratings? I haven't read anything about the LWO, La Parka, etc in Meltzer's sheet, or anywhere else and this would be pretty big news, so does anyone know what the deal is or does the WWE just like to pull shit like this for a few laughs?

The Raw magazine is kinda hit or miss. Sometimes they give you a hint like people talking up Benoit before his major Royal Rumble push to Mania and sometimes its crap. I think they have ideas and throw them out and so what takes. I'm sure the LWO would work now since Bradshaw and Kurt both apperantly Mexicans, so it would make sense if they came out with maybe Cena and make a nice little face faction. I doubt it will happen though.

It would be a cool idea, and would put some life in the CW division - three weeks in a row of cruisers being booked well on Smackdown now, for what it's worth. That aside, any idea that gets La Parka back on my TV I'm all for. But honestly, if they do bring back the LWO, it can only be led by Eddie Guerrero.

A superstar who never wanted to join could only be two people ether it's Rey who was forced into being a member or it was Kidman who was cruserweight champ and feuding with them at the time.

The "superstar who never wanted to join" would almost have to be Rey-Rey, since certainly Kidman never got the offer, right?

As The W's resident WCW historian, I think it's interesting to point out a few things regarding Rey-Rey and the LWO.

Mysterio was forced to join the LWO after a loss to, I believe, Juventud Guerrera. Eddie Guerrero, LWO leader, humiliated Rey by making him wear a size 3XL LWO shirt, which was basically like a damn sleeping bag on Rey.

But shortly after Ric Flair became president (while Guerrero was injured), he asked the LWO members to disband and throw off their shirts. All of them complied-- except Rey, ironically. The one guy who never wanted to wear LWO colors ended up getting the shit kicked out him by Wolfpac members Kevin Nash and Lex Luger because of his defiance.

Nash and Luger beat the shit outta fellow Wolfpac member Konnan when K-Dawg came to Rey's defense. K-Dawg was kicked out of the nWo Wolfpac as a result.

A match was made at the next pay-per-view. Rey Mysterio and Konnan vs. Lex Luger and Kevin Nash. Mysterio's mask was on the line, as was Miss Elizabeth's hair.

Luger got injured shortly before the match was supposed to take place, so Scott Hall substituted for Lex. And The Outsiders defeated Mysterio and Konnan, forcing Rey to unmask.

The following night, Kevin Nash and company strutted to the ring-- Nash wearing Rey's far-too-small mask over his forehead. Rey and Big Kev ended up wrestling, and that led to one of the greatest upsets in wrestling history-- when Rey Mysterio pinned Kevin Nash after punching his way out of a powerbomb attempt, knocking Nash to the ground and hooking his leg for the three-count.

The following week on Nitro, Nash offered Mysterio a spot in the Wolfpac, but he declined, and the feud continued. It ended with a match at the following PPV, in which Nash won.

I don't know the dates. Too lazy right now to look 'em up for ya, too.

Take it with a MASSIVE grain of salt. Raw and SmackDown mags write pretty much whatever they want as long as it doesn't criticise WWE's product, and this sounds like something a writer dreamed up when he had nothing else, y'know, legit to write about. It COULD happen, as sometimes WWE tells the mag to hype a certain event (Benoit winning the Rumble being a prime example) or inform fans about incoming wrestlers (nWo), but I wouldn't hold my breath.
