How is Nash ending Goldbergs streak a political move. Don't claim that Nashe booked himself to win, because he wasn't even in the booking commitee until a month or two afterwards.

Some people say he was, some say he wasn't. There was surely lots of politicking involved though. It was just a stupid move to have someone established like Nash to beat Goldberg, who was still very popular, and end his undefeated streak at a PPV like Starrcade.

Vince buying WCW and thus killing his competition.

Here is one that I should not have forgotten and it maybe the single most important moment behind the scenes....

In 1963 Vince McMahon Sr. and Toots Mondt decide to break away from the NWA because they wanted the title on Buddy Rodgers and not Lou Thesz. They form the WWWF and wrestling history was forever changed

Without this most of the "most important political moves" never happen.

yeah but they still remained just a territory in the North East Until Vinnie Junior went national with Hogan and changed wrestling history.

It may or may not be a political move but what i dont understand is how is that suppose to be most important political move in history? So Nash ends Goldberg's streak and that changed what?

how bout the decision vince made to allow ECW to show up on a raw during the Monday Night Wars.....It gave ECW national tv exposure, gave raw a different feel for one night, and made it look like ECW and WWE were going against WCW together...

Right....common knowledge... but if there had never been a WWWF, more than likely Vince Jr. would have not had the power to pull off what he did.

That was important for sure, but the fact that it came first doesn't necessarily make it the most important. I would say Vince taking the company national was a bigger, more industry-changing move. Sorry for being so nitpicky lol.

Can you really call this a political move though? WCW was dead already when Vince bought them and it was really a no-brainer deal for him. Besides he wasn't even bidding against anyone else.
