WWE legend says claims about him in Goldberg’s book are false


kevin nasho is rejected bill goldbergclaims that they booked their victory over the two-time Universal Champion during their time together in WCW.

Nash defeated Goldberg at WCW Starrcade 1998 to end his 173-match undefeated streak. In 2000, Goldberg wrote in his book, I’m Next: The Strange Journey of America’s Unlikely Superhero, that Nash was responsible for booking the result of the match.

Speaking on Steve Austin’s Broken Skull Sessions show, Nash discussed his time working on WCW’s booking committee. He clarified that Goldberg was wrong to believe that his behind-the-scenes role had nothing to do with the end of his match.

“No, no,” said Nash. “Bill says in his book that I have booked this and everything else. ‘Kevin Nash booked it, Kevin Nash saw this response.’ Does Kevin Nash do The Fingerpoke of Doom next Monday night or do I run with that thing? [ending Goldberg’s streak] And earn as much money as you can? Because I know what’s going to happen if I make a booking, I’ll beat him over and over again.

As Nash noted, The Fingerpock of Doom incident occurred eight days later when he defeated Goldberg to win the WCW World Heavyweight Championship.

In a notorious moment, Hulk Hogan won the title from Nash on WCW Nitro when he simply hit him in the chest. Nash dramatically threw himself to the mat and allowed Hogan to cover it to win the title.
