Default Once and for all: nWo Wolfpac; good or bad move?

ah the Wolfpac... the splinter faction from the original nWo.. the face version: Nash, Sting, Luger, Macho, K Dogg and a few others... do you all think this was a good move or no? How would you have done it differently? Different members, different storylines? Was this a major reason for WCWs 98 decline or did it keep the flames lit for a bit longer??

popular for its time... But the fingerpoke of doom and wwe basicly blaming the wolfpac for destroying wcw has basicly diluted any legacy the wolfpac had.

Best part of the faction? Lobster sting, and the theme song.

Once the nWo peaked and they hadn't made it its own brand with its own show and PPV's, what else could they do, really? Civil war and a face splinter from the group made sense. Plus, that theme song is probably one of the greatest theme songs in pro wrestling history.

Anyone who says the Wolfpac was a bad idea wasn't actually watching wrestling in 1998. They got just as loud pops as Austin did.

By the way, how do you make the choice on the poll "Wolfpac 4 ever!!" and not "Wolfpac 4 Life"

What would I have done differently? The initial split was basically Savage and Nash breaking away from Hogan. And then Hall joined Hogan. It would have been better if Hall and Nash had broke away from Hogan and Savage.

Yes that's true the Wolfpac, if I can remember, was a very cool group. I guess the problem more of the Wolfpac is that there wasn't seem to be an end game or end goal after the nWo split.

Though putting Sting in the group was a very bad idea.

Probably the best end goal would have been at Starrcade or at a PPV some time later. Goldberg vs. Nash vs. Hogan. Goldberg puts his title on the line while if either Nash or Hogan do not win the title their nWo will have to disband.

Goldberg wins of course ending the nWo forever.

Wolfpac 4 ever was the one up that konnan used to do to the black n white;

yo yo yo them fools in the black and white be talking about they fo life but the wolfpack somos lunos vatos locos foooor everrrr
- k dogg

lol

and I always thought that the Wolfpac was a sound, logical fantastic idea and the times that they did do gang warfare was off the charts entertaining but they didn't go all the way with it. It should have lead up to a big blow out in a War Games match Hollywood vs Wolfpac loser disbands with the Wolfpac winning and becoming the cool face group in the same vein as the DX Army only with the rap edge to it that they had going on. Also Luger and Sting should've never been a part of the group; those spots should've been used to bring mid card talent to the fore front namely Booker T and Rey Mysterio maybe Buff Bagwell also as a manager/enforcer type due to his injury. Also Scott Hall should've never been with Hogan. Ever.

Wolfpac roster:

Nash
Hall
Booker T
Konnan
Rey Mysterio
Buff Bagwell


Hollywood roster:

Hogan
Savage
Bischoff
Giant
Big Poppa Pump
Curt Hennig
Rick Rude
Brian Adams
Scott Norton
The Disciple
Vincent


gang warfare until Fall Brawl; winner take all War Games

Hogan
Steiner
Giant
Hennig

vs

Hall
Nash
Booker
Konnan

Wolfpac wins; Hollywood splits.

Giant remains with Hogan as a bodyguard, Bischoff remains with Hogan as political clout, Hollywood gets into a proper feud with Bret Hart and loses to him at Starrcade.

Grunge vs Rap; The Wolfpac feuds with the Flock making them into stars; Hall/Nash face Raven/Saturn at Starrcade.

Vincent and the Disciple disappear, Norton and Adams form a successful bruiser tag team, Hennig and Windham also form a team managed by Rude

Steiner goes crazy without Hogan holding his leash and beats up everybody and wins World War 3 and the World Title match against Goldberg at Starrcade

Once Hogan left the Black and White it had no credibility. Imagine had they done this...

Original NWO - (Hogan, Giant, B. Hart, Hennig, S. Steiner, Norton & Bagwell) vs. NWO Wolfpack (Savage, Nash, Hall, Sting, Luger, R. Steiner, & Konan)

That would've been a great Civil War type series with top guys on both rosters!!!

Plus you would've still had top guys representing WCW - (Goldberg, DDP, Booker T, etc..)

Wolfpac was must see TV for several months, I remember being excited to see how the Red and Black was going to destroy the Black and White; Especially after the original NWO was getting stale. The rebels killing it off would of been the best justice.

Honestly, the story should have written itself, would of been a good way to kill both nwo factions, and usher in a new WCW Era. But the Fingerpoke just brought us back to the NWO being too dominant and prevalent.

I wouldn't have done much different until the Fingerpoke; I would of had both factions fight and slowly erode. Lower members just keep breaking off because it isnt worth it. Have a huge profile match on par with Hogan vs Nash, where the stables basically disband themselves.

The Wolfpac was the reason my Brother and I setup a 2nd tv + Cable box in 98' so we could watch both shows and toggle mute whenever something interesting showed up.
The last episode of WCW we watched like this was the Fingerpoke. So, for us personally, the fingerpoke was what killed WCW. The next time We watched Nitro together wasnt until the Vince Buyout episode.

Personally I liked it, Gave us an alternative to the WCW vs NWO feud we had gotten for years, I would have liked to have seen a better outcome and end to the feud between the two groups rather than it just fading away and all joining a combined NWO faction at the finger poke of doom.

The nWo Wolfpac itself as a faction was a very good idea. I loved the red and black. They had a cool face version of the nWo here. It even got us Sting with red and black face paint! What I didn't like was how things went later on. When Nash ended Goldberg's streak (which I still to this day disagree 100% with) it really messed things up. Then of course we have the Fingerpoke. With Goldberg's streak gone and the nWo back together as one big dominant faction it was colossally stupid. WCW never recovered from this. In short, the Wolfpac as a faction was a good idea. How the two factions got back together was what was the bad idea.
