nWo Elite & The End of the nWo era in WCW
After the "Fingerpoke of Doom" incident in WCW, Kevin Nash and Hulk Hogan joined forces once again. The rivalry between the nWo Wolfpac and nWo Hollywood had come to an end, and it looked like the New World Order was going to get rebooted. Hulk Hogan, Scott Steiner, Scott Hall and Buff Bagwell became members of the Wolfpac, and this new mixture of superstars now wearing the red and black colours would become known as the "nWo Elite", or to be more specific, the "nWo Wolfpac Elite".
Naturally, if one wasn't part of the "Elite", then you're on the B-team. While the nWo was supposed to be a united force once again in WCW, there was still a split. The nWo B-team, consisting of lower card superstars, were still presented as the "black and white" nWo while the Elite (wearing red and black) were featured in bigger matches with more prominence on TV. So, while this "reboot" was supposed to bring the nWo back to it's former glory days, in reality, nothing changed.
This video follows what happened to the nWo following the Finger Poke of Doom in WCW.
00:00 - The Thunder episode after the Fingerpoke of Doom
05:15 - The Giant is kicked out of the nWo
06:32 - Problems between nWo Elite & nWo B-Team
08:56 - Hogan's title defenses while in "The Elite"
11:38 - The Elite begins to crumble
14:54 - Red and Yellow Hulk Hogan returns
16:36 - Vince Russo and Hulk Hogan
- Much More!

    Great video but.... Hogan didn't look like he was screwed at Starrcade 97; regardless of the refs count HOGAN HAD JUST HIT STING WITH A BAT! Why does everyone forget this! When I watched it live, NOTHING seemed botched. It just looked like Bret (who had just been cheated out of his title) didn't want to see Sting get cheated by Hogan, who cheated by using a foreign object. I understand that things didn't go down the way they were supposed to but none of that ruined the moment at all. The Flair/Hogan steel cage match was an absolute mess of booking, but I feel like you ignored the fact that Hogan was actually being cheered heavily that night for some reason. I remember being totally confused by this double turn the fans did with the nwo and Flair, but they actually went with it on that night and Flair was immediately heel going forward. 99 was a mess

    Having NWO Elite made no sense. And it didn't fit the narrative at all as it's suppose to show a continued civil war between the two sides which audiences was motivated to watch and wanted to know how it ends.

    When Scott Steiner was leading the black and white nWo they could've had a good storyline where Hulk comes back an they fight for the leadership. Hell, Hulk wins, Scott becomes babyface with the crowd, another top name. Scott Steiner got there anyway, so allg. The world heavyweight championship in WCW in the year 2000 for me felt like "to little to late" or "we've seen this before". Booker T, Scott Steiner and Chris Benoit all became WCW champion but I feep could've been a couple of years earlier, or they would put it on Hogan, Nash, Macho, yawn. Heck, they should've given Goldberg a second chance, but be a heel champion, because he was heel at the time. I guess they probably had ideas like this too, but in the end the big boss gets the final say, which would've been the Time Warner company.

    Maybe the original nWo may have maintained greater longevity & freshness if Eric & crew had stayed with just 5-6 core members. Every few months or so, a member other than the OG trio could have either been cast out or left on their own, to be replaced by new member. Maybe that new member could have been an upper mid-carder chosen to boost their stock by proving themselves to the leaders, instead of just staying with the veteran ex-wwf guys. The separate factions were fresh at 1st, but every incarnation just made things convoluted, which is why the wheels came off.

    The most frustrating thing about the nWo (all of it's iterations) was that there was no obvious plan to end the angle. It was just one long regurgitated story which they tried to keep milking as long as possible. Eric on his podcast has talked about there being a beginning, middle, and end to angles before just as their are in any story. Well there was a beginning and a middle to the nWo---but no ending. WCW should have come together and finally ended the threat of the nWo once and for all. Hogan either going away for awhile and coming back as Hulkamania for "one last run" etc. But SOMETHING should have been done to end this and move on to other things. Eric has also admitted to being poor at match finishes---well this evident with all the run in and showed this. It's a shame because WCW NEEDED to "win" this war and they never did. Also Hogan continuing to wear black and white while supposedly the leader of the Wolfpac Elite :P
