WWE Hall of Famer Kevin Nash has called “bulls**t” on Larry Zybszko’s claim that he played a pivotal role in the creation of the nWo.
During a recent Q&A, Zybszko claimed that he was the creative mind behind the iconic faction that came together in 1996. He said,
“I’m the one that programmed the whole angle. They had a meeting in the back one day and I found out what was going on with Scott Hall coming in, and they had some ideas. Then Eric looked around and said, ‘Anybody got anything to say’, and I raised my hand, and he went, ‘Oh God, what?’ and I laid out a different idea. I programmed the whole beginning.
“I’m the one that programmed the whole beginning of the NWO and even in promos, right before it happened, they came out, and I went, ‘Oh my God. There’s gonna be a New World Order in wrestling.’ Eric heard that, and it stuck in his head and said, ‘That’s a perfect name for this.’ So, you know, inadvertently I named the NWO and I programmed the whole beginning.”
During a recent edition of his “Kliq This” podcast, Nash claimed that he’s never heard of Zybszko having such an important role with the nWo. He said,
“I gotta say that’s the first I’ve heard of it. I call bulls**t. It’s crazy because the only person I ever had a conversation with was Eric and Kevin Sullivan. Eric Bischoff says it best. You ask five people that were in a room in ’93 a story and you will get f**king five completely different answers.”
