WWE has announced they will be celebrating nWo Week starting Monday.
It was July 7, 1996 at the WCW Bash at the Beach pay-per-view at the Ocean Front Center in Dayton Beach, Florida, that Hulk Hogan turned heel and aligned with The Outsiders consisting of Scott Hall and Kevin Nash to form the nWo.
The nWo (New World Order) would go on to make WCW the dominate wrestling promotion in the mid 1990’s, and take the top spot for 83 weeks over the WWE in the Monday Night Wars.
The full announcement from WWE is below, which includes all the nWo programming that will stream on Peacock in the United States and WWE Network everywhere else.
WWE celebrates nWo Week starting Monday
On July 7, 1996, Hulk Hogan uncorked the Leg Drop heard ‘round the world on “Macho Man” Randy Savage, joined forces with Scott Hall and Kevin Nash, and announced the formation of The New World Order.
With that, the sports-entertainment world would never be the same.
To commemorate The nWo’s milestone 25-year anniversary, join WWE in celebrating nWo Week starting Monday.
The week’s festivities include The Best of The nWo (Tuesday), highlighting the group’s most memorable moments; X-Pac on WWE’s The Bump (Wednesday); and a brand-new episode of “Stone Cold” Steve Austin’s Broken Skull Sessions (Sunday), featuring nWo founding member Kevin Nash as Austin’s guest. All three shows will stream on Peacock in the U.S. and on WWE Network everywhere else.
The celebration continues on WWE social channels, with nWo-themed episodes of your favorite YouTube series, like WWE Top 10 and WWE Playlist, plus Instagram Stories, TikToks, classic videos, photos and more.
It’s just too sweet.
