The Firefly Fun House match at WrestleMania brought back the iconic nWo and the Nitro set to the show as Cena recreated a what if moment…what if he turned heel and what if he had joined the faction.
Bray Wyatt, dressed as Eric Bischoff, introduced Cena as the latest member of the nWo and Cena came out through the WCW Nitro set in nWo gear with the nWo spray-painted WCW title acting like, well, a cocky member of the nWo. Actual footage of Bischoff from his nWo days were also shown to compare to Wyatt’s recreation.
Perhaps no one was more surprised than former WCW President Eric Bischoff who quickly uploaded a video as soon as the match was over. “Okay, that was bizarre. Really bizarre,” Bischoff said as he watched WrestleMania from his home. “I mean, I was fired in October and now in the main of WrestleMania in April? Wow, bet you nobody’s ever done that!”
Bischoff was hired last year to serve as the Executive Producer of Smackdown but his stint did not last long and was fired in October just after less than three months on the job.
Meanwhile, fellow nWo member Kevin Nash also had props for WWE for WrestleMania and thanked Cena and Wyatt for the nWo love. “Made a 60 year old man smile. If we had those two gentlemen wearing the colors I might be heading back to the ring in some capacity,” Nash said.
The WWE Hall of Famer also jumped to WWE’s defense for those who were criticizing the company for going ahead with WrestleMania during these difficult times. “The company is called World Wrestling Entertainment. I was entertained. @StephMcMahon said we’re bringing this to you to take you away from where we are. I was immersed and not watching the news. Thank you @WWE for going beyond what every other product has. Delivered,” he added.
