Instead of Sting being allowed to squash Hogan and become the biggest face in the entire industry, Hogan was allowed to look equally strong. Thus, Sting, and WCW as a whole, was never able to regain it’s momentum. As soon as fans were presented with an alternative face in Stone Cold Steve Austin, they began a steady, mass exodus, flipping the channel to WWF programming for good. WCW began it’s slow death.

One response to “A Complete History of the new World order

  1. Was fake (nwo) Sting not consider a member. Or Dibiase? Cuz you say Syxx was the sixth member(and I remember the commentators also said that when he was introduce) but with Dibiase, the Giant, and NWO Sting that was six, and this was before Syxx joking after War Games 96. Thanks for this info about NWO. And thanks for your time
