The Curtain Call

May 19, 1996

On the eve of his departure to WCW, Kevin Nash makes history again, and at Madison Square Garden, no less, in what becomes known as the “Curtain Call” incident. After losing a WWE Championship Match to Michaels at a live event, Triple H and Scott Hall come down to the ring and the four men share a long embrace as a farewell gesture to Nash and Hall, who is also leaving for WCW. The solidarity of the four exposes their deep seeded friendship to the WWE Universe, and their fearlessness in the face of controversy sets the stage nicely for what comes next in both WWE and WCW.
