When I looked at the link, the name Shaolin Wrecking Crew actually did catch my eye first. That's such a cool name that I'm almost upset that I didn't go to Union City to see such a cool sounding tag team. Almost.
Oh, and I love any promoter who would name a wrestler "Hardway." Terrific.
I agree with your last point. I don't honestly know much about the nWo, and reading things on the Internet has probably trained newer fans to 'not like this idea.' Had they just been introduced individually, they might not be so biased.
