That's what I meant, motherfucker.  You brought up the shitty way he lost the belt to the shock stick and how it was too soon.  Goldberg lost too soon to Nash and then they finger poked the belt off of Nash making that win even more meaningless.

I'd say the pinnacle of wrestling was WrestleMania X-7, weeks after WCW went out of business.  The best WM, and maybe the best top-to-bottom wrestling show period, that has ever been produced.  With no more competition, WWE, and the business, were never the same again.

there was not just one angle that caused the downfall. it was a combination of things. WCW was never as bad as people make it out to be. the problem was the huge money the stars were making. u could not afford to have a dip in business with the amount of money they were paying out. and every company has a dip in business.

The Goldberg streak had to end. people forget that fans were getting tired of the streak. u had to make him lose to make it interesting. there was nowhere else to go if u don't have him lose a match.

Hogan agreed to lose to Goldberg because he thought he was going to get his win back. Hogan as always just thinking about himself.

As a spectacle, I rank it 10.

As a match, it gets a 5.5. It got the job done for the story they were telling.

I would grade Hogan vs Andre at WrestleMania III the same with the same commentary as yours
