WWE News: Is Kevin Nash Leading a Return of the NWO?
WWE News: WWE.com Teasing the Return of the NWO
Following his return to the WWE at SummerSlam, Kevin Nash made his way to the ring without any music for the next two weeks.
Then, last night on Raw, I heard it--that familiar sound of the guitar. It was the NWO's entrance music.
Immediately, I flashed back to WCW circa 1996 when I was an eight-year-old kid who loved, loved, loved the New World Order and everything about it. I know that thousands of wrestling fans thought the same thing, too: Is that music a sign of things to come? Is the NWO coming back?
Well, even if it's not, WWE.com is teasing that it could be:
Fifteen years ago, Kevin Nash rocked the world by assembling one of the most influential factions in sports entertainment history—the New World Order. More than a decade later, isWWE on the brink of a new incarnation of the black and white?
The New World Order’s beginnings were rooted in confusion and conspiracy involving Kevin Nash. The current state of WWE is no different. The mystery of who sent Nash thetext message at SummerSlam, directing him to take out the WWE Champion after the main event, has created paranoia amongst the WWE Universe and WWE Superstars. The atmosphere of deception, and the inconsistent stories being told by Nash, Triple H and Mr. John Laurinaitis, have led to widespread speculation that something larger is brewing.
No, no, no!
As much as I enjoyed the NWO when it first began roughly 15 years ago, the faction has already been brought back in the WWE before. We don't need to see it happen again.
The group was indeed one of the most successful stables of all-time, setting a precedent that numerous other factions would try to emulate or even parody down the road. But it is 2011, and we need to stop living in the past.
I'm all for the return of one of wrestling's lost arts, the stable. In fact, I've called for the WWE to form more factions on this very site about 20 times. But I want to see new factions, not recycled or reused ones.
Bringing back the NWO is the WWE's way of saying, "Hey, we don't know what else to do." It's lazy booking that makes the creative team look, um, not very creative.
There are literally thousands of different ways that the WWE can make the return of Nash and his ongoing storyline with Triple H and CM Punk successful. An NWO comeback isn't one of them.
I guess maybe I shouldn't really be worried about this, though.
If WWE.com took enough time to actually speculate who might join a newly-reincarnated NWO, then there's about a 95 percent chance that it won't actually happen.
