    1. Bret Hart
    2. Jeff Jarrett

    4. Kevin Nash
    Correct!
    Wrong!

    The Hitman

    In the black and white colors, Bret held the US belt 3 times. Double J held it twice. Hall, Scott Steiner, Lex Luger, and Curt Hennig each held it once. Shockingly, Kevin Nash was never a US Champ.

    1. Rick Rude
    2. Shawn Michaels
    3. X-Pac

    Wrong!

    All of them

    Rude was a de facto manager for DX in the early days, X-Pac was the 6th member of the nWo and the first brought in by HHH after the genesis of DX. We all know about HBK's stint in the group.

    1. Scott Hall
    2. Kevin Nash
    3. The Giant
    4. Randy Savage
    Correct!
    Wrong!

    Big Daddy Cool

    The man that was known once upon a time as Diesel held the belt twice. Macho Man held the belt as well as Bret Hart. However, the man who held it the most for the nWo was not a choice, "Hollywood" Hulk Hogan.

  10. 10 What was the date the nWo took over Nitro and rebranded it?

    1. 12/22/98
    2. 1/14/99
    3. 12/22/97
    4. 1/14/98
    Correct!
    Wrong!

    12/22/97

    The idea was to let the nWo either take over Nitro on a full basis or give them Thunder. They would up with partial control of Thunder, but it tanked so awfully that the idea was more/less scrapped immediately.

  11. 11 How many times did the WCW Tag Team Titles come to the nWo?

    1. 8
    2. 9
    3. 10
    4. 11
    Correct!
    Wrong!

    Ten! Ten! Ten!

    Scott Hall and Kevin Nash held the titles 5 times, Sting and the Giant and Sting and Nash each had a turn, as did Hall and the Giant. The B squad had 2 runs, both with Ron and Don Harris.

    1. Elite
    2. 2000
    3. Originals
    4. Typhoon
    Correct!
    Wrong!

    Originals

    Elite consisted of Hogan, Hall, Nash, Bischoff, Buff Bagwell, and others. 

    2000 was comprised of Hall, Nash, Jeff Jarrett, Bret Hart, Scott Steiner and the Harris Brothers. 

    Typhoon was the term WCW broadcasts used to refer to the NJPW version. 

  13. 13 Who did Hogan hit with the leg drop when he joined the nWo?

    1. Roddy Piper
    2. Sting
    3. Randy Savage
    4. Ric Flair
    Correct!
    Wrong!

    The leg drop felt around the world

    Long time frenemy Randy Savage took the hamstring to the chest at Bash at the Beach to signify Hogan was allied with Scott Hall and Kevin Nash.

  14. 14 When Vince McMahon introduced the nWo to the WWE in 2002, what did he refer to them as?

    1. Tumor
    2. Cancer
    3. Chronic reoccuring rhabdomylosis
    4. Black plague
    Correct!
    Wrong!

    Seriously?

    Even if you didn't watch that particular Raw, common sense dictated this one...

  15. 15 True or False: In the statement: "This is where the big boys play, huh? Look at the adjective. Play." The adjective is 'play.'

    It was the first thing we heard Kevin Nash say on WCW television. Was the University of Tennessee alumnus correct? 

    1. True
    2. False
    Correct!
    Wrong!

    Sorry Kev

    The adjective in that statement would be big. Play would be the verb.

  16. 16 Why is January 11, 1999 significant?

    1. Tony Schiavone said "Heh, that'll put some butts in the seats." when referring to Mick Foley winning the WWF Championship
    2. The notorious "Finger Poke of Doom" where Hogan poked Nash in the chest to win the WCW CHampionship
    3. Both of these
    4. Neither of these
    Correct!
    Wrong!

    Gotcha!

    While both the 'Finger poke of Doom" and Mick winning the WWF Championship happened on the same night, it was the week before, January 4th, 1999. Of course there was a trick question, the nWo wouldn't have it any other way.

  17. 17 Who was the fourth man to join the nWo?

    He would be the first one after Hall, Hogan, and Nash.

    1. The Giant
    2. Eric Bischoff
    3. Ted DiBiase
    4. Fake Sting
    Correct!
    Wrong!

    The Million Dollar Man

    While the order after him is somewhat disputed (Syxx aka X-Pac was either the 6th or 7th man) Dibiase came a few weeks before The Giant, Fake Sting, and Syxx.

  18. 18 Who was the only nWo Cruiserweight Champion?

    1. Juventud Guerrera
    2. Psychosis
    3. Syxx
    4. Rey Mysterio Jr.
    Correct!
    Wrong!

    Syxx

    Ok so this was a slam dunk.
