How did the nWo originate?
The New World Order initially originated in WCW and later appeared in WWF. During the attitude era, the nWo took over WCW and the angle eventually became one of the most influential storylines in the Monday Night Wars. The group was founded by the likes of Hulk Hogan, Scott Hall, and Kevin Nash when 'The Hulkster' was revealed as the third man in the main event of Bash at the Beach, 1996 and cemented his heel turn in the process.
Throughout the years, the nWo consisted of Ted Dibiase, The Giant (Big Show), Syxx, Scott Norton, The Great Muta, Randy Savage, Konnan, Curt Hennig, Rick Rude, Dusty Rhodes, and many other notables names of the business.
