But, the focus completely got lost at Uncensored with the double turn between Flair & Hogan.
In my opinion, Hogan fucked up the potential by wanting to turn face. It seems to me, he did it because he didn't want to job to Goldberg again. But if Nash indeed did book himself to end the streak, the shit that happened in the following months was out of his hands, due to injuries and Hogan's creative control.
I was about to say the same thing. But I think it was Flairs idea to turn heel thus turning Hogan face.
Also, Hogan, Hall, Luger and Steiner got injured in the months following the Fingerpoke which killed the Goldberg vs NWO feud off.
