Eric Bischoff: ‘I turned Kevin Nash and Scott Hall into bigger stars’

Kevin Nash y Scott Hall revolutionized the world of professional wrestling when appeared in WCW in mid-1996. Both had become stars under the characters of Diesel and Razor Ramon in WWE, but their arrival in WCW, the WWE competition at the time, changed the game.

Eric Bischoff was one of the architects of that event. He recently spoke of that move on his 83 weeks podcast, where he gloated that he had enhanced stars previously created by Vince McMahon. Bischoff was always criticized for growing the company based on the talent previously created by WWE but, in his opinion, the case of Nash and Hall was different.

“Vinnie (Vince McMahon), yeah you made them stars, but I made them bigger starsAnd you can’t do anything about it, “Eric Bischoff laughed about an interview Vince McMahon gave in the 90s about the heyday of Monday Night Wars.

“This whole long-term contract came about as a result of the competition, when I took these guys that you didn’t think were stars and turned them into bigger stars than they were when they were in WWF: Scott Hall and Kevin Nash. They don’t show up to conventions and appearances dressing like Diesel and Razor Ramon, do they? They’re probably getting royalty checks from Diesel and Razor Ramon, but I’m sure it has nothing to do with the royalty checks they get from nWo merchandise. “

Birth of the nWo

On May 27, 1996, during Monday Night NITRO (the star program of the old wCw), someone that absolutely no one would expect to see appeared in the audience: Scott Hall. The reason why it was not expected, Hall was RAZOR RAMON in WWF until recently. Like Pedro at his house, Scott snuck into the ring with a mic and started the whole plot: Hey! People, you know who I am, but you don’t know why I’m here. Where is billionaire Ted? Where is the Nacho Man (referring to Macho Man)? They cannot be in the building. Me? I go ANYWHERE I want WHEN I want. Oh, and where is Scheme Gene? (referring to Mean Gene Ockerlund). I have an interview for you. When that KenDoll look, when that weatherman wants to come here later tonight, I have a challenge for him, for billionaire Ted, for Nacho Man, and for anyone in WCW. Hey, do you want to go to war? Do you want war? You WILL HAVE one “.

For the next several weeks, Scott showed up to badmouth WCW and Eric Bischoff. He talked a lot about a challenge. He even came to blows with Sting one night. Another great personality would join the game later on, Kevin Nash, who had become a star in WWF in recent years. Hulk Hogan subsequently joined the group in Bash at The Beach, betraying WCW, turning heel for the first time in his career and blessing the formation of the nWo (New World Order), one of the best stables in wrestling history.
