Time for another "favourite moments" column, this time it`s about the NWO.From 1996 to now, what have been your favourite NWO moments? Mine was on January 4 1999 when they stuck a tazer up Blowberg`s candy ass.

These aren't 'favorites', they're just memorable for all the wrong reasons.

-'The Smoking Giant' angle.
-Scott and Buff avoiding Rick Steiner, lose tag titles to Rick and Judy Bagwell.
-The drawn out feud for 'leader of the NWO B-team'

How about Big Poppa Pump and other members coming to the ring with the original group of hoochies? Tylene Buck was one of them, her wrestling debut I believe.

OK, this is a little off topic since it's not really an nWo moment, it's just a Kevin Nash moment, and he wasn't in the nWo in the time, but it was about to reform the next. Ugh, either way, here goes: Starcade '99. Nash vs. Sid in a Master of the Powerbomb match. Ref gets knocked out, Sid powerbombs Nash, JJ(I think) comes down and knocks out Sid somehow(guitar shot?), Nash hurt his back and can't powerbomb Sid so he just revives the ref and tells him he did. Ref awards the match to Nash. Absolutely hillarious! I still remember Scott Hudson telling everyone he refuses to acknowledge Nash as the master of powerbomb after what happened. Ah, WCW, how I miss thee....

My favorite NWO moment is when they beat that one wrestler up (I forget his name) and spray painted the letters "NWO" on his back.

Seriously, though, my favorite NWO moment had to be right at the beginning, when Hogan ran in to what appeared to be an attempt to save Savage from an Outsiders attack, only to deliver the leg drop heard around the world and begin his run as the heel Hollywood Hogan. Love him or hate him, it was a surreal moment to see the lengthy and storied face run Hogan had come to an end.

I know this is a blindingly obvious thing to come up with but, at least for me, the best nWo moment was Hall jumping the rail the first time. This was before my internet days so I didn't know it was coming and it blew me away. The cocky way he spoke to the announcers, and the way they put it over as a shoot was just amazing as I'd never seen anything like that before. Over the following weeks when Nash turned up too, I remeber thinking that Hall and Nash were the absolute coolest dudes ever.

Well that and (just for Papercuts!) throwing Rey Mysterio like a damn spear!! .

Dude, I was there that night, and believe me..
It er...went on for a long long long long long long long long long time..
yet somehow it was fun to see.
I still got a leaflet that fell from the ceiling and I am taking it to WMx8 next week, hoping that somehow Hogan will be signing it..

Anyways, best nWo moment.
- the first weeks. very cool and well built.
- the hall vs nash feud where nash tried to sober hall up and stuff (incl. the puking incidents)
- the nWo reunion following the poke of doom. At that point I thought it was a cool thing, if only from a 'ooh those bastards' p.o.v.. And at that point they dumped the B-team.
Only too bad they were allowed back a few weeks later..
Also, I believe then Hall & Nash started beating up tag teams randomly and WCW countered this with a 'wall of wrestlers' for every match..consisting of jobbers to the jobbers..that was great!

My favorite nWo moment was when the Ultimate Warrior used the power of the Warriors to appear in a mirror and threaten Hulk Hogan and Eric Bischoff with the same beating he gave Santa Claus.

SPEAK TO ME WARRIORS!!

My favorite nWo moment was when Jimmy Hart came out during the Sting/Luger vs. Flair/Anderson match and yelled that Hall and Nash were wreaking havoc backstage. Then, the camera goes to the back to find a beaten Scotty Riggs on the floor and Nash standing with a bat which he and Hall then used to beat Arn Anderson, Lex Luger, and yes, threw Rey Mysterio Jr. into the trailer like a lawn dart.

I also liked when they spray-painted the trailer.

two faves:

1. The classic "my dog spot" skit with Nash doing Arn.

2. Hogan's heel turn at Bash at the Beach that got it all started. Capped by Schiavone's classic "You can go straight to hell, Hulk Hogan. Straight to hell."

sidebar to #2: With all crap being thrown in the ring by fans (some of those fans heaving serious stuff from a LONG way off), I couldn't get over Gene Okerlund having the guts to get in the middle of all that to interview Hogan. Even today, looking at the tape, I can't help but say to myself, "Damn, that Gene's got some balls on him to get in that ring!"

I totally agree with DMC about the nWo assaults with multiple Hogan legdrop goodness. I swear I thought Macho Man especially was killed after each attack! Poor Savage. But then again, to quote Hulk Hogan from 'World War 3' 1995, "Macho's not hurt!" (FIND THIS EVENT and watch the promo with Hogan and Sting. I swear, Hogan insists that "Macho's not hurt" umpteen times, only to have Savage tap out to Luger later that night. It's friggin hilarious, bra'!)

My favorites were when Savage got legdropped in the back of the head like 8000 times, and they spray-painted a body outline around him afterward. And since my memory is kinda' shaky, I also remember when Savage was destroyed by the nWo, and Hogan did a poor man's Ric Flair strut, legdropped Savage on his mug, and the Giant barked into the microphone, "WOOOMM!"
