Still surprised Hogan allowed Greenberg to pin him clean.

Hogan the businessman obviously knew that Goldbergs momentum was good for the company no matter what his personal agenda may have been. That he didn't veto the change being on free TV and demand it go to PPV is the mystery to me.

The pinnacle of Nitro.  The size of the crowd was on par with WM and the reaction and atmosphere surpassed almost every WM.  Just electric, and all on free TV.  You knew logically that Goldberg had to win, but was still surprised when Hogan did the job.  And moreso than Warrior or Luger or any of the other "next Hogans", this one felt like the real deal, the legit passing of the torch to the guy who would carry WCW for the next 15 years.  Yeah, so much for that...

Should have been on PPV but WWE was red hot at the time and this was WCW firing back. Probably the highpoint of the company - it was all downhill from here.

They should have gone with the DQ win and set it up for a title match on PPV. I suppose the desire for winning the ratings war was more important than actually making money.

I don't think it mattered to Hogan - he was making an absurd amount of money per appearance and it didn't matter whether it was PPV or Nitro.

For some reason I think they were going all-out to get a 'record rating number' maybe there was no RAW on USA that night , anyway, Hogan knew that a record rating number with him in the main event was a good thing politically.

Beginning of the end due to the fact that they gave it away for free.

I think the beginning of the end was 'Goldberg losing a match'. Seems like he was very popular and could have ridden it out for awhile

He lost too soon, but also the way he lost was awful.  They booked themselves into a corner and were going to suffer for it no matter what, Goldberg was defined by the streak and eventually it had to end, but the stupid Mountie shock stick and all the interference (including by curtain-jerkers like Disco Inferno) was just the worst possible way to end the streak.

Would have been better if he was dominating a match and accidentally got KOed on a ringpost or something. Puts the fluke loss out there and then he can chase for a while with lots of shenanigans keeping him from getting the title back, at least right away.

The whole shock stick thing was really horrible in hindsight.

Yeah, and then wasn't it followed by the finger poke of doom, or am I misremembering that?

That order seems about right. The next Georgia Dome spectacular for TV they did, I believe.

Goldberg beat Hogan July 6, 1998 at the Georgia Dome.  The fingerpoke of doom was Jan. 4, 1999 at the Georgia Dome (I believe the Nitro one week after Nash broke Goldberg's streak).  Almost 6 months apart to the day, and pretty much going directly from WCW's peak to its downfall.
