The following announcement has been paid for by the new World order.
In the late 1990s, there wasn't much that was hotter, more topical or more captivating than the nWo storyline. More than twenty years ago, in fact, the first warning shots were fired by the nWo to WCW that they were taking over.
The nWo was much more than a wrestling faction. It was a major storyline, a catalyst for change, a marketing concept and a reason for fans that had abandoned wrestling for years to tune in again.
There were, of course, several different incarnations of the nWo over the years, including the original group, Hollywood, Wolfpac, Elite, Black & White, 2000 and even the short-lived WWE version. But what were the best angles, moments and matches?
In selecting the Top 50 nWo Moments, Wrestling Merchandise and Memories considered the following criteria:
What impact did it have on both mainstream and regular wrestling fans?
How memorable was the moment many years later?
Has the moment been replicated in wrestling in any way, shape or form?
How surprising or innovative was it?
