The Blue World Order at Wizard World 2011

Stevie Richards, the Blue Meanie and Nova comprised the Blue World Order in the now-defunct ECW. It was originally intended to be a one off appearance, but it was so popular it stayed around a lot longer and was even revived briefly by the WWE years later.
The gimmick was a hilarious spin on the wildly popular nWo of that time period, but it wouldn't have worked without the talented trio.
All three men are also very nice and very smart about the business. Johngy's Beat Wrestling Correspondent JayHawk Evans handled the interview duties when we had the opportunity to talk t them at Wizard World years ago. Those interviews remain some of my favorites and some of the funniest stuff we've seen in our interviews. These guys are gold.
Though mostly retired from active wrestling, these three have been involved with consultations and appearances. All are big sports fans, with Stevie and Meanie being Philly fans, while Nova is a HUGE fan of the Dallas Cowboys.
I love the picture below. I was part of the bWo, even if just for a few minutes. I think Johngy would have fit in with the Blue World Order.
