But @relentless1, Vincent was mainly a manager most of his time with the nWo, so he's not on this list. Hogan, Nash, Hall, Savage and Bischoff were the key players for the Original nWo. Giant, Syxx, Bagwell, Norton, Konnan, Hennig, Adams, Beefcake and Steiner were just role players for the Original nWo.

And sure, Bischoff is a manager just like DiBiase, Vincent, Elizabeth, Rude, Spicolli and Dusty, but only Bischoff stood out more over the long-term than the others, and especially if Bischoff had more value than the worthless Vincent.

Hennig turning on the 4 Horseman at the PPV was priceless. Great moment for sure.

Absolutely! Don't know why my post was deleted. Vincent was around for a long time..he joined pretty early on. And he absolutely served a purpose, in taking those ass whippings.

No idea why I'm the only vote for Scott Norton yet, but trust me when I tell you that the inclusion of Scott Norton gave the nWo its enforcer - an imposing, internationally recognized gravitas than few other superstars outside of WWF-bound Big Van Vader gave them.

I've often referred to Norton as the best wrestler to never win a major American World Title. He took an even greater back seat with the folks in WCW and the nWo at the time, but his participation in the nWo made that organization stronger and scarier - perhaps at the expense of himself.

Norton was a huge boon for the nWo... eps always been one of my favourites, but he didn't really come into his own as a destroyer until 1998 really. I wish he has been pushed as an nWo enforcer for real, he'd have made a great TV or US champ at some point

Scott Norton wasn't really one of the nWo's top guys. He was the top guy only for New Japan when he was the IWGP Champion in 1998, and that was when he had the shaved head buzzcut thing instead of the long hair he chopped off mid-year. Norton wasn't all that great as far as his role and potential trajectory goes, but you also can't kick him out of the nWo either. It's like, WCW didn't know what to do with a guy who alternates time between WCW and Japan frequently rather than a full-time WCW performer.
