SA broke Hart’s heart, twice

While Hart will bring the pink-and-black attack to SA, a black-and-white presence will be at the convention center as well. After successful careers in the WWF, Scott Hall and Kevin Nash, along with Hulk Hogan, formed a faction called the New World Order to run roughshod over WCW in 1996. The group, who wore black and white NWO logo T-shirts, enlisted other members from the company, including Waltman, Bagwell, Norton and Virgil, to cause destruction in WCW and destroy its heroes, pummeling the good guys and spray painting the NWO letters on their backs, wreaking havoc for two years. The group’s antics were seen by millions of viewers each week and helped propel WCW as the top promotion in North America, with the WCW Monday Nitro television show beating WWF Monday Night Raw program in the Nielsen ratings for 82 straight weeks.

Hall, Nash and Hogan would reform the group in WWE in 2002 before ultimately disbanding months later. After 17 years, the group is still fondly remembered; the WWE released an NWO retrospective DVD last year.

There’s also a little Texas pride in the form of Hernandez, who competes on Impact Wrestling (airs Thursdays on Spike TV) and is one of River City Wrestling’s biggest superstars.
