Konnan Details nWo Split In WCW

The split between Hollywood and Wolfpac was more than just a storyline

Konnan is one of wrestling’s last great storytellers. At one point the biggest draw in Mexico, if not the World, K-Dogg was also part of the Monday Night Wars, as an indispensable member of WCW’s New World Order.

In a live Q&A session on AdFreeShows, Konnan was asked about the background on the split into nWo Hollywood, and The Wolfpac, to which Konnan replied:

“I was backstage so I can tell you first hand. There was a power struggle to get Eric Bischoff’s ear. There was Hall and Nash, and then there was Hogan. It seemed at the end of the day, Eric would always listen to Hogan. That really started the downfall of, to me, of that whole storyline, and even the company, because there was so much tension behind the scenes. Scott Hall, who I thought was brilliant at coming up with ideas, was no longer coming up with ideas, and was drinking. 

"The worst part is they were starting to shoot on each other. If you go back and look at the old interviews, Hogan was shooting on Nash. Nash was shooting on Hogan. Nash was shooting on Kevin Sullivan. Roddy Piper was shooting. It was a power struggle for money and for ideas. At the end of the idea, Eric hitched his boat to Hogan, and not to Hall and Nash. To tell you the truth, I’m going to tell you something you won’t believe."

Konnan continued, saying the experience ruined his time in WCW;

“When I was in WCW at that time, I never thought that I could hate something I love so much. I just hated being there so I wasn’t even paying attention anymore. I was literally just going there, getting paid, and leaving. I just thought that there was so much they could have done there.”
