Maybe I'm recalling it wrong, but I'd thought that Nash had been "powerdropping" people like that for a while before accidentally Ganso Bombing the Giant... I'm pretty sure that's what he did to Bischoff when he threw him through the stage, for example.
You might be right, Nate. ALthough that being a drop would make sense as he threw him away, off the stage. No way he could have held on for that one.. Anyways, I seem to recall his earlier 'work' being more powerbomb-ish as to the latter being drops. I started noticing after a friend of mine complained that guys always seemed to land wrong (which was he figured because they werent being 'guided' down they would have the tendency to turn a bit or stick out arms and stuff to break the fall.)
Oh, that would also be a huge nWo markout moment.. Nash being fined everytime he powerbombs/drops someone and Vince paying for it anyways *grin* I loved that one back in wcw.

I honestly don't recall much of Nash during his Diesel phase, he may well have used a more traditional powerbomb back then... Honestly, I always thought it was due to some form of injury, maybe a back/knee problem making it difficult for him to do a proper powerbomb. I seem to recall a minor internet grumble session about the Outsiders refusing to let the Steiners suplex them around because it was rough on their backs... but that was a long time ago, and senility is creepin' up.
However, to be truthful... I kinda like the idea of Nash using a powerdrop instead of a plain ol' powerbomb. That makes it unique, and a unique finisher is always a plus.

YES! Bring back Norman Smiley! Norman is a god, and I demand to see him on my TV. Ah, who am I kidding. As for La Parka, I don't care if he never wins a match, he can and probably would still be entertaining if the WWF let him do his thing.
