Hall’s arrival stunned fans and laid the groundwork for what would become the New World Order.

Scott Hall unexpectedly walks into the arena, interrupting a midcard match between The Mauler and Steve Doll.

“You know who I am. But you don’t know why I’m here….  You want to go to war? You want a war? You’re gonna get one.”

At Bash the the Beach, they would introduce Hulk Hogan as the third man in their group of invaders.
The rest, as they say…  is wrestling history.
