• Eric Bischoff Reveals His Original Plan For The nWo
During a recent appearance on Talk Is Jericho podcast, former WCW President Eric Bischoff explained his original plan for the nWo and why a lot of wrestlers ended up joining the nWo.
Below is what Bischoff said:
“The reason for that, good idea, bad idea, doesn’t matter at this point, but the reason for it was because the idea originally was to create this hostile takeover, this war between the nWo and WCW, and I wanted nWo to takeover the Nitro show, and I wanted WCW to have their own show on Thunder.
So in order for nWo to have their own show, and have their own roster deep enough to sustain a two, or at some point a three hour show, there had to be more nWo members and eventually peel off and turn on the original nWo and all that kind of storyline gaga.
But I was building up the nWo roster so I could eventually have WCW on Thunder, nWo on Nitro and have my two companies so to speak battling each other. Good idea, bad idea, doesn’t matter at this point, but that was the idea.”
