Kevin Nash & Scott Hall Think Kevin Sullivan Should Be Included With nWo In WWE Hall of Fame Induction

February 20, 2020 | Posted by Ashish

On the latest edition of After the Bell, Kevin Nash and Scott Hall said that WCW booker Kevin Sullivan should be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame as a member of the nWo. Highlights are below.

On if they would add anyone to the nWo induction to the WWE Hall of Fame:

Scott Hall: “I guess from a fan’s point of view, maybe they wouldn’t agree, but from somebody who’s like behind the curtain, I would think Easy E, I would think Eric Bischoff, because the whole thing was his idea. But I guess if you’re a viewing fan, you don’t see it that way. That’s the way I see it, I would have Bischoff up there with us.”

Kevin Nash: “I’d have Kevin Sullivan, because Sullivan was the guy that basically, though it was Eric’s idea, Sullivan was the one that made sure, there’s always been the equation that if you’re a heel, that in order for you to be successful, it’s like a hot air balloon, the more heat you allow inside that balloon, the higher it goes, and the more viable that heel entity is, and Sullivan just really battled day in, day out to make sure they didn’t take heat off of us. Nobody got through the nWo. And Sullivan always booked heat, and he continued to book heat, and his booking of that heat is what made the nWo.”

Scott Hall: “I want to concur. Kevin Sullivan, who I’m a huge fan of, it was what we call back in the day, a heel booker. I’m gonna pile on what Kev said. Yeah, these guys are hot coming in, we were hot coming in the door because we came off Vince’s TV, we were Razor and Diesel, and what are they doing here, and this is before all these internet, this is before everybody had a cellphone, this is before all these internet stuff was out there, people thought it was real. People thought Vince sent us there to destroy WCW, it was a, good time was had by all.”
