Trivia

This is one of the last WWF DVDs released with the WWF initials and references intact. Soon after this DVD's production, the World Wrestling Federation lost a lawsuit to the World Wildlife Fund and could no longer use the WWF initials. This DVD was released soon after the lawsuit, but only the packaging bears the "WWE" initials. See more »

Back In Black And Blue
25 May 2006 | by See all my reviews

It is lamentable to see the opportunity of issuing the complete DVD history of THE storyline in sports entertainment that mattered the most get tarnished by the preoccupations of the moment of one Vinnie Mac. These preoccupations were to promote and make successful the WWE's version of the nWo - and it was fully deserved to see it not live up at all to unrealistic expectations, despite the involvement of Ric Flair and even Arn Anderson. For, make no mistake about it - the nWo success was highly due to the presence of the true defenders of old school wrestling, the true WCW champions and the true tradition that the nWo was only mimicking; and that was The Four Horsemen! The three-way and sometimes four-way war that the arrival of the nWo generated (Horsemen, Dungeon of Doom, nWo and... Sting & his friends, basically) was truly a unique situation that could not be replicated. Neither could the "corporate takeover" angle (though this nWo version 2.0 was just a little bit better than the pathetic "alliance invasion", when a depleted WCW and an equally-shorthanded ECW formed said alliance. What was exactly the highlight of this whole thing again - Stephanie McMahon telling Classie Freddie Blassie that the WWF was dead -or was it already WWE- and so was he? And, shortly thereafter, Mr.Blassie did pass away - but that is another story of course - unscripted this time).

It is understandable that Vince McMahon thought that this would work out wonderfully well. He had seen the phenomenal success of the "nWo vs WCW" angle; and he had also seen - first hand since he was a part of it

  • that "Stone Cold feuding with the boss" had saved his company from


going under (which they very nearly did in the heyday of the nWo saga in WCW). Hence, "Mr. McMahon" was convinced that "Stone Cold vs the nWo" (or his "shot of poison" into the arm of the WWE, as he called it then) was going to work wonders for his sagging ratings and stagnant wrestling story-weaving crew... and it could not get the job done. It was redundant to see the same faces play the same roles all over again
  • only to accommodate the likes of Stone Cold and the Rock who had not


been a part of it the first time around since they were not in WCW. To see Flair align himself with the nWo briefly, out of hatred for Austin, was totally ridiculous and out of character when one remembers the memorable Horsemen-nWo clashes of 1996, 1997 and 1998. Ahh, those were the years...

Ultimately though, I am tempted to say that this entire exercise failed so miserably because LARRY Z wasn't there to comment on it! Larry Zbysko, then of the WCW broadcast team and today of new rival TNA, had added this brilliant bit of color commentary in 1996 in an episode of WCW Monday Nitro on TNT that shortly followed in the wake of the nWo formation. He had likened Hollywood Hogan to the antichrist of wrestling then - complete with three "6s" on the back of his head! This was much in sync with the whole "Novus Ordo Seclorum" mystique that the nWo developed in a hurry - and it did measure up to the aura of greatness of a group that represented excellence, such as The Horsemen did and still do in the memory of connaisseur fandom. Alas, for the nWo, it was only to really last through those three initial years of its existence... Years that are BARELY covered in this DVD...
