Superstars Assemble: WWE's Super Teams

Sting, Lex Luger and “Macho Man” Randy Savage

In 1996, Scott Hall and Kevin Nash arrived in WCW with the sole intent of wreaking havoc and starting a war. They alluded to working with a third man, and challenged any three of WCW’s stars at Bash at the Beach. WCW President Eric Bischoff held a draft and ended up assembling a team of three competitors who epitomized what the organization stood for— Sting, Lex Luger and “Macho Man” Randy Savage. At Bash at the Beach, Luger and Savage wore face paint similar to Sting to show their unity as a team and their strong allegiance toward WCW in the face of an unpredictable enemy. When Hall and Nash’s alleged “third man” did not appear, it seemed possible that WCW’s super-team would be successful. The Outsiders were forced to resort to underhanded tactics – drawing the attention of Hulk Hogan—who appeared to be another member of WCW’s super-team. But Hogan betrayed WCW, and WCW’s team was caught completely off-guard as The New World Order was born. (WATCH)
