Say what you will about their work ethics or the political games they play, you have to admit, the nWo members are quite entertaining and will definately make the WWF more interesting. Sure, maybe in the long run, it'll turn out to be a bad idea, but then again, maybe not. That being said, out of Hogan, Nash and Hall, who are you most excited about returning to the WWF?
"What an idiot! The beach is right there!" ---Stifler
Nah, I say Hall. Nash and Hogan you kind of know what they are going to be like, but we all haven't seen Hall in quite a while, and while we hear reports of him "getting his act together" and "putting on great matches in Japan" and all like that, I, for one, actually have no idea what he's going to be like when he's back.
Farooq is the man so hit your knees and start praying!
For the angle, all 3. And I am curious what their roles/angles will be. For in ring stuff. Scott Hall. IMO he was a decent worker and I would like to see what he can do now. Also, I wonder what Hogan/Nash are gonna be doing in the ring. There are alot of people who could literally chop them into bits now. See if the WWF mods their offense to at least make them legit threats.

I'm just hoping that between the NWO hype, and the usage of the word "yak" by Booker T, that this can only lead to the true spiritual leader of the NWO coming soon, the best color man ever, Master of the Slapjack, Stevie Ray! I want someone called a fruit booty on Raw before the end of the summer.
The serious answer though is Nash, because I think at this point he may be the only one of the three with the promo style to sound effective in the WWF these days. There, I feel better now.
Honestly - Scott Hall. For some reason I knew someday I'd see Kevin Nash and Hulk Hogan again. Scott Hall I figured was done. The fact he's being allowed back on TV is enough to send a shiver.
I know alot of people have said it before - but I think there is absolutely no two ways about it this time - THIS is Scott Hall's VERY LAST CHANCE to make something of himself. I REALLY hope he doesn't blow it.
I can't really say I'm excited about any of them, but I guess I am intrigued by Scott Hall. If what has been said about him is true (and somehow I doubt it) then he could be a welcome edition. I'll only have use for Hogan if he...GASP...loses sometimes. And I'll never, under any circumstances, have use for Kevin Nash (unless he hurts RVD, anybody who hurts RVD is okay in my book and I don't mean some career-ender just something to take him off TV for a couple months. I mean I'm not asking for a broken neck.)
And I think you're fat. So how do you like me now?
What, are you sick of hearing RVD wins with the Five Star Frogsplash? I really like RVD, and popped big when he first came in, but all his matches seem to get pretty predictable cause you know he's gotta hit the Rolling Thunder, the Crossover Heel kick, and the Five Star. Not that the Rock doesn't do the same thing (and I still like the Rock) but I think RVD needs to change it up a bit. I mean, at least Jeff Hardy had Matt to cover for him most of the time when he had already hit all his spots.
Oh, I guess I'll say Nash. I want to see what he actually says when he comes back. Should be interesting
Probably Hogan, cos of the history there. Question, though: will he be Hollywood? And I am completely down with Stevie Ray on colour. That he might be doing commentary on the WWA ppv makes me want to get it (though I'm curious anyway).
I'm going to have to say that of those three, Hall is by far the one I'm most interested in seeing.. he's sound on promo's, has a lot of charisma, when he's sober he's pretty good in the ring (particularly since he works a "big guy" style), and he just oozes machisimo.. *blink*
But if I were to pick anyone out of the nWo, I'd want to go for Norton as the "serious guy" I'd like to see back.. or the whole of the B-team with leader Stevie Ray.. I'd watch a weekly 30 minute comedy entitle the misadventures of nWo B-team.
I would love it if Hall could incorporate a little bit of the Razor Ramon character into his persona when he returns. The pointing at self in front of the fireworks was always a great entrance. And the toothpicks!

With Raw/Smackdown matches being short and "bite sized" as they are, everyone has a series of signature spots they'll hit match to match. Even Benoit matches were more or less limited to snap suplex, swandive headbutt, crossface, and a half million German suplexes on regular TV.
No matter how bad things may get, just imagine what would happen if Vince Russo was booking again, and you will feel better.
I too am looking forward to Hall coming back. Although I think that when Hogan (inevitably) reverts to the yellow-and-red in, he will get a bigger response from me then. There would just be something cool about seeing old-school Hogan in the WWF.

It's funny you say that. I was just thinking that Hogan and/or the WWF would probably want the "old" Hogan back for a short run, and I am not looking forward to that at all.
At least heel, black-and-white Hogan can hide behind gimmicky evilness. A face Hogan running through a roster half his age doesn't interest me, however.

As a Holly fan, do you wish Kurt Angle would hit RVD with a Moonsault?
...and my answer is Scott Hall using the Razor's Edge as opposed to the Outsider's Edge...
BTW, I've been viewing the tribute video... Here's the progression in REVERSE order, starting with the NWO invasion of Nitro:
Original nWo invasion Nitro Logo SHAWN MICHAELS Razor Ramon Diesel Jeff Jarrett
If I were the type of person to say that WWF hints at its booking plans in its video packages, I'd say that putting Michaels in that dubious position means that his return will be in concert with his old Klique pals... as I've never seen him wrestle live, I'd say his return would be the most exciting for me...
(note that this logic would further imply that IF Jarrett were to return to the WWF, it would be as a member of the nWo)
But we need to learn that the WWF does NOT hint at this stuff in its packages...
Wondering if anyone out there has come across a comprehensive year-in-review type feature, column or webpage yet? Just trying to put together a faux year in review for Inside The Ropes and looking for a good point of reference.
