About two months or so ago, this amazing video montage of LeBron James, Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade hit the net. The video portrays Miami’s trio as the nWo (New World Order). The nWo was one of, if not, the biggest and most important gimmick in the history of professional wrestling. It changed the world of wrestling for years, and it also meant that long-time good guy, Hulk Hogan, became the villain — it shocked the wrestling world.
Obviously on that mid-July night on ESPN, James’ announcement to join Bosh and Wade and “take his talents to South Beach,” did as well.
The video was put together really well and captures that nostalgic late 90’s big-time wrestling feel, but I do want to at least bring up the point that this blog was the first referencing the nWo gimmick with LeBron James. Regardless of who gets credit, the video is awesome. If you aren’t familiar with an nWo vignette, then check the original.
Luckily, the first exhibition game is less than a month away, only about three more weeks of complete boredom. Thankfully we at least have some World Basketball Championship action to watch in the meantime.
