The new three-disc box set chronicling the rise and fall of the New World Order starts out fine, but quickly balloons into a convoluted mess of 17 completely unnecessary discs.
New World Order: The Revolution begins with an interesting DVD exploring how veteran wrestlers Hulk Hogan, Scott Hall and Kevin Nash formed a rebellious stable of outsiders hell-bent on “taking over” World Championship Wrestling (WCW).
The next two DVDs in the set provide a thorough overview of how the nWo breathed new life into the wrestling business and intensified the so-called Monday Night Wars with rival promotion World Wrestling Entertainment.
By all accounts, the box set should end there, but instead rapidly expands to include many more discs of varying uselessness.
Some of the discs retain the black-and-white color scheme of the first three, while others are red and black. Subsequent discs include Japanese lettering, while others explore the nWo contributions of Virgil/Vincent and David Flair.
The majority of wrestling fans who have bought the nWo box set have complained that its rapid expansion is confusing and pointless, ultimately destroying their enjoyment of the concept.
