Note from 2013: We have come to the fifteenth anniversary of Goldberg’s big WCW world title win over Hollywood Hogan. This was a special night at the time for me as a wrestling fan because I rarely got to stay up for the third hour of Nitro. There was magic in the air, the rumblings of change was there, all the cliches you can think of spouting out. Going into this show though at the time, I did not know Goldberg was getting a title shot until I turned on the program. I was on a road trip with my folks and my brother and had missed the Thunder and any Saturday programming leading up to this show.

Let Us Take You Back to Thunder 7/1/98. JJ Dillon announces that #1 contender Goldberg will indeed face Hollywood Hogan in the Georgia Dome on the following Nitro.

My buddy Slackamania (just a nickname, he’s not insane) and I will be double-teaming this review. He’s a die-hard wrestling fan from way back in the day just like me, so I hope you enjoy his thoughts on the program, while I will be handling the special features – like a boss. Is that still cool to say? Was it ever cool to say? I don’t know, but hopefully you’ll keep reading. Read the rest of this entry
