• The Blue Meanie Reveals The nWo’s Reaction To Seeing The bWo In ECW
During a recent episode of the ‘WSI: Wrestling Shoot Interviews’ video podcast, Old School ECW Veteran The Blue Meanie revealed the reaction of the original New World Order (nWo) faction to the parody they did of Hollywood Hogan (portrayed by Hollywood Nova, later known as WWE’s Simon Dean), Scott Hall (portrayed by The Blue Meanie himself) and Kevin Nash (portrayed by Stevie Richards) in Paul Heyman’s Extreme Championship Wrestling.
They were called The Blue World Order (bWo) and lasted from 1996 till 1998, but eventually reunited on WWE TV in 2005.
Here’s what ‘The Blue Guy’ had to say on the nWo’s reaction to them:
“When I first went to the WWF, I saw X-Pac and I was like ‘hey man, hope you guys didn’t mind the bWo thing’ and he was like ‘nah, we loved it! It was cool!’ and later Scott Hall said that after a show they’d go to a local bar and put the TV on and watch ECW.
Then eventually I met Scott Hall when he did that loop in ECW and he used me as a way to rip Kevin Nash, he was like ‘Well, since the bWo is the Blue World Order and Blue Meanie is me, I should be the leader of the nWo’ kind of like ribbing Kevin Nash that he should be the leader of the nWo and stuff like that.
They were all very cool about it, Nash was great about it. I eventually met [Hulk] Hogan, briefly when I went back to WWE to do the SmackDown and RAW SuperShow and yeah, he said it was great. So, the nWo were definitely cool about the bWo.”
