WWE's return to Madison Square Garden this month was already a pretty big deal for the company and, after a 10 year absence from the historic arena, the Feb. 27th house show just stepped up the next level with the confirmation that a NWO reunion will take place.

The band back together

On a night already dubbed the 'Hulk Hogan Appreciation Night', the veteran wrestler has been joined by former partners in crime Kevin Nash and Scott Hall for one night only.

The New York venue confirmed the reunion via their official Twitter account last night.

Lead by Hogan, NWO are often cited as one of the most successful stables in wrestling history and have been credited with some of the most insane and entertaining feuds and story lines in WCW/WWE history - not least Hulk Hogan's stunning heel turn - so a chance for the WWE Universe to seem them back together again in the arena is hugely exciting.

Big night

Unfortunately, now boasting a combined age of 172, it is unlikely that Hall, Hogan and Nash will be fighting anyone in the ring in MSG.

That doesn't mean there wont be plenty of awesome promos in a night already filled with nostalgia geared towards Hulkamania. 

A 2015 reunion for the three founding members of New World Order appeared unlikely at the turn of the year following Kevin Nash's run in with the law.

After being involved in an altercation with his son he was suspended by the WWE and, after charges were dropped, hinted that he'd never appear with the WWE again.

Rest of the card

The rest of the card for the Madison Square Garden show sees Rusev take on John Cena in a battle for the U.S. title while Roman Reigns will go up against Bray Wyatt.

Daniel Bryan and Randy Orton will also team up to for a tag team match against Seth Rollins and Kane.

The reason for so many high profile names, including the NWO stalwarts, is due to Vince McMahon's strong affinity to the New York venue.

The WWE CEO sees the Big Apple as WWE's spiritual home and clearly wants to give them a show to remember.

What do you think WWE fans? Looking forward to the NWO back together, or is it time Vince McMahon moved on from the veterans? Let us know in the comments section below...
