The New World Order was one the the greatest heel factions of all time. It was in the same league as the Four Horsemen and Degeneration X. It revolutionized prewrestling from being a cartoon to being more adult oriented. This movement was the brainchild of WCW executive Eric Bischoff.

The angle started out with Scott Hall invading a WCW program and challenging WCW to a war. At this point people still thought Scott Hall was still employed by WWE. Then came Kevin Nash who was also a WWE alumni. Next the two recruited Hulk Hogan and Hogan turned heel.

The movement grew by leaps and bounds and NWO alumni include some of the biggest names in wrestling such as Randy Savage, Sting, Paul Wight, Lex Luger and Ted Dibiase. WCW in fact beat WWE because of the NWO. However WCW did not have any good plans beyong the NWO and the storyline extended farther than it should have which was a reason for the demise of the company.

The video however, does not have too much WCw footage. Most of the footage is from WWE when the NWO reincarnated there. This is clear bias on the part of the WWE as the NWO was the most successful back when it was a WCW property.

I liked the video because the NWO is my favorite faction of all time. The second is the Main Event Mafia which is NWO redux in a certain extent. NWOlites would be happy with this video but the video lacks too much WCW footage to be great.
