• Stone Cold Cuts A Traditional Black & White nWo Promo
WWF Legend Stone Cold Steve Austin was feuding with the New World Order in 2002, but has never been an nWo member before.
However, for WWE’s current nWo week, The Texas Rattlesnake filmed one of the traditional black & white nWo promos, that fans will recognize from 1996 in WCW and 2002 in the WWF.
The 2009 WWE Hall of Famer calls himself “Hollywood Steve Austin” in the video, a reference to the original nWo leader Hollywood Hogan.
