How the streak almost ended: 
"There is a lot of talk of having Hennig attack Konnan for the turn which would result in Goldberg losing via DQ so he wouldn't get No. 100 after all, but that idea is retarded." - June 15, 98 Observer
"Bill Goldberg pinned Konnan in 1:57 to retain the U.S. title....There was a lot of heat stemming from the changing of the original finish. Curt Hennig was unhappy because the real heat for him was to be the guy who screwed Goldberg on his 100th win and he had major words with Eric Bischoff regarding both this and his interview on Thunder being canceled a few days earlier. Kevin Nash was unhappy because it was his idea that was accepted, and then later overruled." - June 22, 98 Observer

Dave Meltzer's choice of words from 20 years ago are insensitive to the slow adult community and seriously problematic. 

The casual use of this vicious slur has deeply triggered me.  I have been curled in the fetal position all morning since learning that this language was once deemed acceptable, and am now unable to work, eat, or breath.  This is not acceptable language now or ever and I demand that Mr. Meltzer immediately resign his post as Observer Head Scribbler and be banned from the world of fake fighter journalism.  Furthermore, I would like to bring this matter to the attention of Congress for immediate investigation. 

I also think that is no coincidence that this word was used in the same sentence as a great Mexican-Cuban immigrant like Konnan.  The racist undertones cannot be ignored.  

If my turms are not met by the end of the day, I will have no choice but to write a follow up on Twitter once I am physically able to wipe the tears from my eyes and regain function in my typing hand.

I don't think those are years or it's your typing hand. Sounds like you're getting a bit aroused at the thought of a snowflake meltdown.

There were some rumors in the dirt sheets, at the time, about a potential reformation of the Four Horsemen. It was said to include Flair, Luger and Goldberg, with a fourth member undecided (Mongo and That Canadian Guy were still kicking around. FWIW, I half-expected it to be Bret Hart as #4).

Obviously, it never came to be, but I'm curious if that was meant to be tied into Goldberg getting screwed by Hennig. Hennig was the guy who sorta' ended the Horsemen in the fall of 1997, so there'd be some history and continuity.

Yikes - reading this it seems like WCW was hell-bent on shooting themselves in the foot when it came to Goldberg.

When you luck into money, the stupidest thing you can do is to toss it all back into the slot machine.

As for Meltz, better to intellect-shame WCW booking than fat shame Payton Royce I guess.

They were though. Having recently gone back and watched a lot of WCW on the Network, it seems that WCW pretty much jumped the shark when Goldberg got the title. What someone says they thought about doing is all speculative bullshit and means nothing. Goldberg was unbelievably over. For whole TV shows that spring, all people did was chant for Goldberg. They were happy to see him defend the US title in sub-minute squash matches against unworthy contenders. He even main-evented a show against Glacier, Michael Buffer intros and all. Then when he won the title, it seemed like they felt they couldn't have the world champion giving title shots to the mid-card, so he was seen less and less as Hogan and the celebrities stunk up the summer, and then Nash booked his own push to the title.

The sad part is, none of those upper card guys need the title other than as a status symbol. I mean, would Hogan, Nash etc be any less over without the belt? Goldberg as World champion was their best chance in years to elevate the mid-card for the good of all, a good effort against Goldberg could make you a more believable threat to any of the upper card and possibly persuade fans to get invested in you possibly having a shot at a Hogan or Nash, therefore giving them fresh new opponents. But their egos wouldn't allow that.

I didn't have cable until my 20's. However I was at my brother's for some reason on a random school night and I turned on Thunder. Goldberg worked with Johnny Grunge IIRC in a quick squash and the show went off the air. I was flabbergasted that WCW chose to headline their show in such a manner.
