On This Day in Wrestling History…
One of the greatest factions in the history of professional wrestling, the New World Order, was founded on this day in 1996.
At WCW's pay-per-view event, Bash at the Beach, Kevin Nash and Scott Hall took on the 3-man team of Lex Luger, "Macho Man" Randy Savage and Sting. WWE Hall of Famer Hulk Hogan made his way down to the ring to save the iconic faces near the end of the match, but instead shocked the world by turning heel for the first time, performing the Atomic Leg Drop on long-time friend and rival, Randy Savage.
