Not that anyone wants to discuss Lex Luger, but I had a quick question about him. While perusing CRZ's Valentine's Day cards, I noticed an NWO logo on Luger's. When was he in the NWO? I vaguely remember him being in the Wolfpac, but I can't figure out when, or what the circumstances where. Was he face or heel? I guess this has gotten blocked from my memory (probably for good reason). Thanks in advance for any info.

Luger was in the Wolfpac as a face. He also was part of the "finger poke" plot of Doom and turned heel by co-forming nWo Elite.

Thanks. I totally forgot that Luger was in the "Elite" NWO. Is there anybody else I'm forgetting, or was this the group the night of "The Finger Poke of Doom":

I don't think Bagwell was on hand that evening... Neither was Konnan, who was Wolfpac for a couple of weeks before they gang beat him in the middle of the ring for wanting Rey Mysterio to be left alone.

I don't think Bagwell was actually on hand that evening, but he was part of the nWo Elite red-and-black faction. It was Hogan, Nash, Hall, Steiner, Luger, Bagwell and later Disco Inferno.

The nWo Elite wasn't referred to as that, though, they were simply called the Wolfpac, while the rest of the team was known as simply the nWo black-and-white.

First guy to get kicked out of the Wolfpac at this time was indeed Konnan. And cfgb was dead-on with the reason why. I thought it was kinda funny how Nash said to Konnan, “Let me speak on this!” before the Wolfpac kicked his ass.

Sting was nWo Wolfpac for awhile, but then he got injured by Bret Hart at Halloween Havoc. He still wasn't back in time for the nWo reunification, and by the time he returned, I believe the nWo Elite was no more.

The nWo black-and-white hung on for quite some time, though, getting smaller and smaller. It was comprised of such guys as Stevie Ray, Vincent, Horace, Brian Adams, and Scott Norton. Stevie left the group to rejoin Booker T in Harlem Heat. Brian Adams later went nuts on the group and beat down all three of their asses in the coolest Brian Adams moment of all-time. (Not saying much).

Vincent, Horace and Norton simply... disappeared.

CRZ sez:

Hogan tries to punch - now, gingerly taps him in the pec - Nash drops like a ton of bricks. Hogan covers - 1, 2, 3????? (1:41) Ladies and gentlemen, we have a new World Heavyweight Champion. Bischoff finally breaks his silence to congratulate the NEW World Champ as we see the cop car arrive in the back, Goldberg gets out, rushes the ring, takes out Steiner, Hall, Nash, and finally Hogan gets him with the belt and now he's raining down punches on him. Whip, reverse, spear. LEX LUGER is out (hmmm), holy crap! He ATTACKS Goldberg!

I did write a Reader Digest version of nWo history I keep meaning to submit to Slash. I think I'll do it tonight.

That would be appreciated for those of us who were still WWF marks during that period (or didn't happen to watch wrestling at all).

That was the night in Atlanta when Eazy E told his announcers to watch RAW because Foley would become a champ.

...I thought that was Tony Schiavone? LOL...

But seriously, if that's the case, given the option I'd watch Foley win the title. Then again, I'd rather not see either of them win the belt.

That was during my anti-WWF period. Everything from the time Bret was screwed until the HHH/Stephanie marriage I have very little use for. Living in Canada, we of course get RAW unopposed, and Nitro on Wednesdays. I STILL didn't watch Foley win the belt and had to chuckle at Schiavone telling me not to change the channel on WEDNESDAY.

I wasn't into reading spoilers at the time either - so I had no clue Hogan was gonna walk out of there with the belt. I know alot of people frown upon the moment, but it was ballsy on WCW's part to try a move like that. It failed - but it was a risk I think was worth taking, given they needed something huge at the time.

But I'm extremely biased.

Yes, you are extremely biased. I was flipping back forth that night, I thought I switched over to Raw during Tony's announcement, but I remember the poke of doom. It was ballsy, but it was also very stupid. At that point in time did anyone want to see Hogan with the belt again? I guess only Hogan and the bookers, because the writing was on the wall from the WCW fans. They hated Hogan and were tired of the NWO storyline. It was more stupid than gutsy. It was also my last straw with WCW.

Mick's title win was just the perfect example on how to book a storyline and a match. Sure, there was a buch of interferance, but it didn't stop me from marking out like a small child at the end of a GI Joe five parter. It was great. There were so much going on that when the outcome was determined it made sense and was the penical of the WWF for a long time.

I hate getting into the Bret Hart thing, but man, you Canadians have to get over that. As CRZ said "Its called the time honored tradition for a reason, Bret."

A Fan- I don't know how this went from Luger to poke of doom to Foley's win.

Actually, IIRC, Konnan was never in the nWo elite. He was bitching in the ring about how he wasn't told about it, and how he wanted to be a part of it when they kicked his ass, I think.

Actually my hatred of the WWF in that period has little to do with the screwjob so much as the storylines. They were NOT what I watched wrestling for. I guess I've slowly become accustomed to it over time, but I couldn't stand watching Austin flip the world off and get cheered for it. I rolled my eyes at the childish antics of DX. Val Venis was a pornstar, THAT'LL keep me watching. And I can hardly wait for that long awaited 2 minute Ken Shamrock vs. Mark Henry matchup.

MEANWHILE on the other channel I had 10 minute Cruiserweight matches that were usually void of run ins. I had cool midcarders like Chris Benoit and Booker T. The nWo story may have been stale, but it kept me hooked more than watching Kane and Undertaker work another match.

I just never got behind Attitude and still have problems with it today. Maybe I am willing to accept it just a little more because the guys are either getting better at wrestling, or have moved on leaving good workers behind.

I can see your point. I'm a more sports entertainment guy than a wrestling fan. I thought the WWF had more fresher storylines and ideas than WCW's run of the mill NWO run in followed if you are lucky, Sting saves the day end.

I did like watching the cruiserweights, but at the time Raw came on, so did the NWO. It was an easy choice to switch the channels.
