Format: DVD Verified Purchase
�N W O: Back in Black� chronicles the rise and fall of the New World Order in WCW in the late 90s and its recent resurgence in the WWF in 2002. The 83 minute feature covers the beginnings of the group very well but is incomplete as glosses over A LOT of ground in between.
THE FEATURE:
The actual feature covers the following:
1. A rundown of the WWF careers of Hulk Hogan, Razor Ramon and �Big Daddy Cool� Diesel.
2. The origins of the �Monday Night Wars� and the first appearances of Scott Hall and Kevin Nash on WCW Monday Nitro.
3. The formation of the N W O at the Bash at the Beach 1996.
4. The N W O�s running roughshod over the WCW roster during the Summer and Fall of 1996 including the parking lot attacks, in-ring attack on the Horsemen and Dungeon of Doom and the Giant�s joining the N W O.
5. From there the feature TOTALLY glosses over the rest of the N W O storyline alluding to the tons of members that later joined and completely ignoring the rest of the angle. It also quickly glosses over what the WWF did during this time.
6. The feature picks up in the present with Ric Flair joining the WWF in November, 2001 and talks about how the Flair vs. McMahon feud led to McMahon brining back the N W O at February�s No Way Out PPV. The rest of the feature talks about the N W O�s short-lived WWF career up to Wrestlemania X-8.
THE DVD SPECIAL FEATURES:
Once again, the WWE is putting that WCW video library to great use with some GREAT extra matches on here. Here are the DVD extras:
1. Scott Hall and Kevin Nash vs. Randy �Macho Man� Savage, Sting and Lex Luger from Bash at the Beach 1996: The landmark match and promo that started it all Hogan turns heel and joins the Outsiders to form the �New World Organization.� 16 minutes. 4 stars.

The formation of the nWo in July 1996 changed professional wrestling forever. This DVD does a good job covering the history of the New world order from May 1996 through September 1996...and then it skips directly to the WWE version in 2002, which was just Vince McMahons lame "re-birth", intended to sell T-shirts and this disappointing DVD.

The three plus years that this DVD skips contains the real story of the nWo. From the groups rise to power and glory days from July 1996 to December 1997, to the 1998 nWo split into the wolfpac and nWo Hollywood, to the infamous "finger poke of doom" and the 1999 Wolfpac...to the short lived nWo 2000, which ended the factions run in the old WCW. Some of the highlights of that era was the Sting storyline, Roddy Pipers return to battle the nWo, the nWo Souled out PPV from 1997, Curt Hennig turning against the 4 Horseman & the controversial 4 horseman parody, the nWo nitro from late 97, Starrcade 97, the nWo split, and Bret Harts short leadership of nWo 2000.

However, nWo fans should take a look at this DVD for the early coverage, and the Bash at the beach 1996 & War Games 1996 match. The WWE version was pitiful in the eyes of real nWo fans out there...maybe someday the true story of the new World order will be told.

I love the story of the NWO. It was nice to see the old WCW days with the NWO and the WCW storyline. The WWE is good at putting the DVD together with all the music and highlighted matches. The problem was that there wasn't enough WCW NWO and too much WWE NWO. I hated the WWE's version as they killed the whole mystique of the NWO when they were running away from Stone Cold etc. They really should have made them "KINGS" and brought them back NOT as Vince McMahon's goons but against the whole WWE or WWF at the time. That's what made it so great in the past. They came in as outsiders and not as thugs from someone else. Still, it was great to see them but they could have done a better job. The DVD has some good matches from the past and did bring me back so I did enjoy the DVD in that sense. I'm a big wrestling fan and always like Hogan so the story is good to see what they Hogan was thinking in the back and worrying about the fans reactions.
