WCW Monday Nitro
July 6, 1998
Atlanta, GA
Georgia Dome

The current WCW champs were as follows:
WCW World Champion: Hollywood Hogan (4/20/1998)
WCW U.S. Champion: Bill Goldberg (4/20/1998)
WCW World Tag Team Champions: Sting & Kevin Nash (6/14/1998)
WCW World Television Champion: Booker T (6/14/1998)
WCW Cruiserweight Champion: Chris Jericho (6/14/1998)

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.

HOUR NUMBER ONE! Your hosts are Tony Schiavone, Larry Zbyszko, and Mike Tenay. Read the rest of this entry

They show what happened after they went off the air at Spring Stampede. As Kevin Nash and Randy Savage stand in the aisle facing the crowd with their arms raised and the championship belt in their possession, Hollywood Hogan and the Disciple attack them from behind with a ball bat. Of all people, Scott Norton comes out and yells at Hogan about what he had just done. When some more nWo boys appear, Norton tells Hogan that the belt is back with the nWo and we need to keep it there. WELL, LOOK AT THE BALLS ON SCOTT NORTON~! Schiavone is certain there is a definite split in the nWo. Gee, what gave it away, Tony?
