• Legendary Stable Returning To WWE Soon?
The New World Order (nWo) was last seen on WWE TV at WrestleMania 31 in 2015. Later that year, Hulk Hogan was released from WWE.
Hulk Hogan was reinstated into the WWE Hall Of Fame last month which means there’s a good chance we can see the group back again.
TicketDrew, an account that has broken a few stories in the past, indicated on Twitter that WWE could be planning an nWo reunion for Hulk Hogan’s return to the company.
The group would either unite for a one time appearance or they might get a WWE Network Special. Scott Hall and Kevin Nash will be featured alongside the Hulkster whenever they reunite.
I’v been asked a couple times if I think the nWo is coming back with Hogan/Hall/Nash. No, I don’t think they will have another run on the roster as active wrestlers BUT you might see them on the network or a one off sometime soon.
