The Blue World Order (bWo) was a stable of professional wrestlers formed at Extreme Championship Wrestling's November to Remember 1996 event at the ECW Arena. The stable lasted until August 1998 and briefly in World Wrestling Entertainment throughout the summer of 2005.

Extreme Championship Wrestling

Since July 1995, Stevie Richards and The Blue Meanie had been making parodies of various wrestlers from the WWF and WCW. In early 1996 Raven was forming a stable called Raven's Nest, and was gathering new members to be lackies. He called upon Stevie and Meanie along with an independent performer from New Jersey, Nova. These three would often come to the ring together before Raven made his entrance, imitating rock bands or pop culture references, most notably The Jackson 5 and at ECW The Doctor is In in August 1996 as the rock band KISS. The latter received a great ovation from the hardcore ECW fans before The Sandman abruptly entered the ring and caned them. Backstage, after this parody Buh Buh Ray Dudley told them how great that was and that the only thing greater than that would be a parody of the nWo. After clearing things with Paul Heyman and Raven, it was decided that they would form the bWo at the next big event, November to Remember '96. Over the next few months, members were added and members left just like the group they were imitating.

Hollywood Nova

The height of the bWo's success came at the very first ECW pay per view Barely Legal, in which Big Stevie Cool was part of the 3-Way Dance main event for the #1 contendership for the ECW World Title. Just weeks after this event Richards suffered a "severe" neck injury and announced his retirement. The legitimacy of this injury has been rumored to be a complete work, perhaps a mockery of Shawn Michaels' knee injury segments in the WWF at that time. Shortly thereafter, Richards left for WCW, and the bWo soon faded. In July of 1997, Nova had a match against Taz in which Taz vowed to kill the bWo. He squashed Nova, and although Meanie and Nova continued to tag over the next few months, the bWo was indeed dead.

World Wrestling Entertainment

The bWo reunited in 2005 at World Wrestling Entertainment's ECW reunion show, ECW One Night Stand 2005, coming to the ring before the Dudley Boyz versus Tommy Dreamer and The Sandman match. During their entrance, Joey Styles (laughing hysterically once they entered) said that "If any gimmick never deserved to make a dime and made a boatload of cash, this is it! And the best part is that they (WCW) couldn't sue us, 'cause it's a parody!"

On July 7, 2005, the bWo reunited once again this time to confront JBL since JBL sought out The Blue Meanie and punched him repeatedly after The Blue Meanie called JBL a "Backstage Bully", causing Meanie to tear some recent stitches and bleed at ECW One Night Stand 2005. JBL taunted the bWo and called Blue Meanie a "fat little bitch". This led to a Blue Meanie versus JBL match. Richards delivered a nasty chairshot to JBL during the match that busted JBL open. Blue Meanie won when Batista ran in and gave a spinebuster to JBL and threw an out-of-it Meanie on top of JBL.

Later, the bWo challenged The Mexicools to a match at the 2005 WWE pay-per-view The Great American Bash, with Stevie Richards saying the bWo was tired of the Mexicools interfering in people's matches, saying they were going to take over and rise up against the gringos because "We invented that!" - which then prompted Hollywood Nova to say "Actually, we never said we were going to rise up against the gringos". The three members appeared on WWE Velocity in a six-man tag match against 3 jobbers to prepare themselves for their tag match against the Mexicools. At the Great American Bash, the bWo and Mexicools met in a six-man tag match. They even drove into the ring on tricycles to parody the Mexicools' usual ring entrance on John Deere lawnmowers. The bWo lost the match after Super Crazy hit a moonsault and Psicosis hit the guillotine legdrop on Big Stevie Cool for the win.

As the month of July ended, the bWo faded from the scene. Stevie Richards went back to his old gimmick, as did Hollywood Nova, while Blue Meanie was never officially contracted by WWE.
