After spending five years in rival promotion World Championship Wrestling (WCW), the former Diesel returned to World Wrestling Federation (WWF) in 2002 under his real name Kevin Nash. Nash reformed New World Order (nWo) with Hollywood Hulk Hogan and Scott Hall to reunite the trio of the original founders of nWo in WCW. nWo debuted on WWF television as heels at No Way Out. They had been invited by WWF Chairman Mr. McMahon to destroy his creation in owner to release WWF from the hands of WWF co-owner Ric Flair.
