I think the reason behind why Goldberg had to lose to Kevin Nash was because, in reality, Goldberg had already mowed his way through virtually an entire WCW roster in one go, as part of his Undefeated Streak from his WCW debut in 1997 up until Starrcade '98. Goldberg at that point never fought Randy Savage and Bret Hart, because Savage was out with a Torn ACL since a friendly steel cage match vs DDP on Nitro via beatdown from nWo Hollywood, and Bret Hart was in and out of WCW due to groin surgery so that spelled the end of his association with nWo Hollywood, so WCW bookers can only do so much with Goldberg that people actually start to get sick and tired of the Undefeated Streak. Goldberg already went through the likes of Raven, Hugh Morrus, Meng, Barbarian, Perry Saturn, Curt Hennig, The Giant, Konnan, Glacier, Renegade, Mongo, DDP, Bam Bam Bigelow, Scott Hall, Scott Putski, Van Hammer, Barry Darsow, Ray Traylor, Brad Armstrong, Fit Finlay, Stevie Ray, Disco Inferno, Barry Horowitz, Yuji Nagata, Kendall Windham, Steven Regal, Scott Norton, Lodi, Sting and even Hollywood Hogan to build up such magnificient streak, so Nash was the perfect guy for the role of ending Goldberg's undefeated streak. Goldberg losing is for the purpose to make him more interesting than continuing the streak.

It does not matter if Kevin Nash defeated Goldberg at Starrcade '98 because of Scott Hall's run-in interference with the stun gun taser cattle prod weapon. What mattered was that if you have a look at Wrath aka Bryan Clark/Adam Bomb on Kevin Nash's throwaway match against Wrath on Nitro, you would've figured that Nash's popularity was through the roof, even though Wrath himself was a face, although he is a dozen steps down from Nash's level. Adam Bomb was just bitter because his reason for leaving the WWF in 1995 was because The Kliq were in charge of the WWF behind-the-scenes, yet Clark couldn't fully get over until KroniK. I think the tag team division was appropriate for Bryan Clark imo, because his best moments were really when he tag teamed with Brian Adams as part of KroniK.

By the way, @Chris1-16; the Nash/Goldberg match at Starracde '98 was a No Disqualification match, so anything goes, including the taser and the run-in by Scott Hall, Disco Inferno and Bam Bam Bigelow.
Except people weren't sick of the streak yet.

Goldberg was still over in a massive way. He was still the biggest draw that WCW had, and he was the main reason that people who had been completely worn out from NWO fatigue were still tuning into Nitro.

People were not happy when Nash beat Goldberg, and after investing so much time in the streak, hated that it ended the way that it did. They hated that it ended to a member of the 'old guard' in Nash, and the smarts that knew about Nash's booking influence behind the scenes hated it even more because they just saw it as another self serving move by a member of a core group who was rewriting the book on self serving moves.

Even then, it still could have worked had their been a plan in place that centered on the fact that Goldberg was their star. When they quickly transferred the belt to Hogan with the incredibly ill conceived 'finger poke of doom', and showed that the entire thing was built around reuniting the NWO? Well people were sick of it, and for so many that was the last straw.

@the eternal champion,

you talk through it mate. the steiner bros were kickass, the Frankensteiner was innovative at the time, Harlem heat rocked the joint every time they came out, and the outsiders changed the landscape by going to wcw.

As a fan, wcw rocked in the 90's

I honestly don't understand how debates like this happen? We all know the answer: it's been twenty years pretty much and people have been on record for most of it: the NWO white side needed more vibrant life: Hall was the answer. They also wanted to run Nash vs Hall, which they did.
