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 his “Kliq This” podcast, Nash claimed 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 bullsh*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*cking five completely different answers.”

In a recent Q&A session, former professional wrestler Larry Zybszko claimed that he played a significant role in the creation of the iconic wrestling faction, the New World Order (NWO). However, WWE Hall of Famer Kevin Nash has called Zybszko’s claim “bulls**t” and stated that he has never heard of Zybszko having such an important role with the NWO.
Zybszko asserted that he was the creative mind behind the NWO and that he programmed the entire angle. According to him, during a meeting where ideas were being discussed for Scott Hall’s arrival, he raised his hand and presented a different idea. He claimed to have programmed the whole beginning of the NWO and even suggested the name for the faction. Zybszko stated that Eric Bischoff heard him mention “New World Order” and decided it was a perfect name for the group.
However, Nash, who was a prominent member of the NWO, expressed his disbelief in Zybszko’s claims. He mentioned that he had only ever had conversations about the NWO with Eric Bischoff and Kevin Sullivan. Nash also pointed out that when it comes to wrestling stories, different people in the same room often have completely different recollections.
The NWO was one of the most influential and successful factions in professional wrestling history. It was formed in 1996 and consisted of wrestlers Scott Hall, Kevin Nash, and Hollywood Hogan. The group revolutionized the industry with their rebellious and anti-establishment storyline, which blurred the lines between fiction and reality. The NWO’s impact on wrestling culture can still be felt today.
While it is not uncommon for different individuals to have varying accounts of events in the wrestling business, Nash’s dismissal of Zybszko’s claims suggests that Zybszko may be exaggerating his involvement with the NWO. As with many aspects of professional wrestling, the truth may lie somewhere in between conflicting narratives.
In conclusion, Larry Zybszko’s claim that he played a pivotal role in the creation of the NWO has been called into question by Kevin Nash. Nash, a key member of the faction, stated that he has never heard of Zybszko having such an important role. The NWO remains an iconic part of wrestling history, and while Zybszko’s involvement may be disputed, the impact of the faction on the industry is undeniable.
