To have the best experience for this quiz, open up a new tab, get on YouTube, and play n.W.o’s theme music while you take the quiz. Put that bad boy on a loop or let the n.W.o Wolfpac theme song play next. The n.W.o was a groundbreaking stable but before we get into it, you should know the history behind it.
Previous to the birth of the n.W.o, there was a real group of friends in the WWE. Known as the Kliq, they hated each other on screen but were best friends behind the curtains. Two of those friends would leave the WWE for Ted Turner’s WCW. Eric Bischoff and creative decided they wanted to tap into realistic storytelling, similar to the themes of reality television today.
The realism along with the great talent in the stable made the n.W.o transcend from the wrestling industry into pop culture. It became so popular in the 1990s that even in 2017 their impact is still felt in the wrestling industry. Although we would like to paint a great picture about this stable, they also had their downfalls. The amount of success WCW and the members of the stable would have would lead to a laundry list of problems that ultimately ended WCW. Regardless, the n.W.o will be considered one of the greatest creations 4 life.
What Year Was n.W.o Formed?
Ted Turner founded WCW in 1988 but didn’t start making a profit until the mid-1990s. As the new kid on the wrestling industry block, Turner would throw large sums of money at his promotion which resulted in new signings, outrageous props and ring sets, and entertainment content outside the ring. Who can’t forget that terrible segment featuring Sting and Robocop? After swinging and missing, WCW tapped into real potential with the n.W.o. Will give you one small hint, the stable wasn’t formed in the 1980s.
True Or False: n.W.o Was In The WWE?
We all know Vince McMahon wished he thought of the n.W.o storyline. He enjoyed the idea so much it’s a huge reason why he created D-Generation X and let Shawn Michaels and Triple H get away with a lot of shenanigans. After the WWE bought out WCW in 2001, a lot of fans of the n.W.o didn’t know whether their favorite stable would have a home in McMahon’s WWE Universe. Do you remember if the n.W.o every made its way to the WWE?
What Is The n.W.o's Hand Gesture Called?

After the split of the Kliq, it became a symbol of unity but the WCW and the n.W.o took it one stepped further and started including it in their storylines.
Kevin Nash And Scott Hall’s Tag Team Was Called?
Kevin Nash and Scott Hall both were in the WCW before moving onto bigger and better things in the WWE. They would become Diesel and Razor Ramon during their stint with Vince McMahon.

Which Wrestler Wasn’t A Founding Member?
When it was all said and done, the n.W.o had dozens upon dozens of members but it was originally started by just three. By 1996, Ted Turner’s WCW would be in a war with Vince McMahon’s WWE. Turner decided one of the best ways to defeat his enemy is by offering WWE’s talent large sums of money which McMahon couldn’t compete with. At first, the results were great and a lot of well-known stars jumped ship. The free agent signings would result in the n.W.o being born but do you remember who were the original founding fathers?
True Or False: Bret Hart Was A Member Of The n.W.o?
The n.W.o’s calling was anti-authority and the “I’ll do what I want attitude.” Another hallmark for the stable from the start was the fact that it had former WWE wrestlers as its members. This added an extra element to make it seem like n.W.o was trying to take over the WCW. The stable eventually stopped with hiring just former WWE employees and started adding homegrown stars and celebrities. The expansion of the team eventually led to its downfall but do you remember if Bret Hart was a member?
Which n.W.o Member Was The Only One To Win WCW’s Cruiserweight Championship?
The WCW Cruiserweight Championship was created in 1996, however, the WCW Light Heavyweight Championship was created in 1991 which has the same concept that you had to be under 225 pounds to compete.

The title would actually stay around and carry over to the WWE but do you remember which n.W.o member won the belt?
In which PPV Was The n.W.o Formed?
Not one fan saw it coming. The greatest hero of professional wrestling, Hulk Hogan, would turn heel and form a dominant stable featuring Scott Hall and Kevin Nash. If you could compare it to today’s entertainment, it was like watching HBO’s “Game Of Thrones” season three, episode 9, called The Red Wedding.

Eventually, Hall would introduce Nash and they would set up a six-man tag team match with three stars of WCW.
Which Celebrity Was A Member Of The n.W.o?
The WCW would take a cue from Vince McMahon and go one step further in regards to celebrities. Not only would celebrities be involved in storylines, WCW creative would even make them champions, such as actor David Arquette.

Which n.W.o Member Didn’t Win WCW’s World War 3 Match?
WCW would have some crazy gimmick PPVs and World War 3 might just take the cake as the wackiest one of them all.

Starting in 1995, the PPV would only last four years and would be replaced by Mayhem. Although short-lived, it was still great to see this experiment on live television. Three times a wrestler representing n.W.o won the event, do you remember which one didn't?

You think Marvel’s “Civil War” was created in 2006 and fans got to witness a live-action film about the storyline in 2016, however, there was another fictional civil war that was very important in WCW.

Which Former NASCAR Driver Represented n.W.o?
NASCAR and racing in general always relied on sponsors to represent their team. Whether it’s for branding purposes or receiving that extra money, sponsors and NASCAR will always go hand-in-hand. With that said, sometimes those sponsors might not be a product you were thinking.

Who Wasn't A Member Of n.W.o Hollywood?
As we mentioned in the last question, the WCW decided to make a civil war storyline with the n.W.o. With countless members on the stable, it was a no brainer to split the team up.

Which Referee Was A Member of n.W.o?

Which Parody Stable Did Eddie Guerrero Form To Battle The n.W.o?

What Is The Name Of n.W.o’s Theme Song?
One of the best elements of the n.W.o was the powerful entrance music. The song was cool as ice and had a Jimi Hendrix feel to it.
