Do you blame Kevin Nash as one of the reasons why WCW went out of business?

He beat an undefeated Goldberg.He didn't need this win to put himself over.I know many here don't like Goldberg but did Kevin Nash really need that win and let his ego get the best of him?

No, not really Kevin Nash was actually a reason why WCW got so popular in the first place, Nash is part of the reason why WCW was able to compete with WWF RAW, the reasons why WCW failed is because of Vince Russo he is a terrible creative writer the fact that he put the title on himself is just a disgrace, and show that he doesn't care about the Business what so ever, and Hulk Hogan who always wants the spotlight on him

No, because Eric Bischoff and Vince Russo are the reasons why WCW went out of business. I remember that in June 2000, I asked Bischoff why he does not get rid of Ric Flair and he said that Ric was money that's why.

You seem to forget that it was Kevin Nash's decision alone that he was going to be the one to end the streak... he was in Creative control at the time. Him beating the streak and the Finger Poke of Doom that followed were Kevin Nash decisions. So yes.. he is a large reason why WCW went out of business.































Oh and what was happening on Raw the night the Finger poke of doom happened? Mick Foley won his first WWE championship. Raw dominated from that point on..

Yep.































Had Hulkamania gotten over when Hogan first went to WCW Nash (and Hall) would never have gone to WCW. Hogan tried to bring the red yellow Hulkamania to WCW but the WCW fans didn't want it. Probably didn't help that Bischoff rolled out the red carpet for Hogan and gave him a ticker tape parade to herald his entrance, but WCW fans didn't want the WWF's cartoon superhero in their territory, so they booed him. Hogan got angry, called up his old buddy Nash and said let's screw WCW to death.































Nash (and Hall) appeared in the audience, leading everybody to believe a WWF invasion was coming. Hogan did the heel turn, becoming Hollywood Hogan, and the nWo was born. Fantastic angle that got over huge. So huge that WCW passed the WWF in the ratings.































Had Hogan and Nash been serious, and actually cared about making WCW a long-term success, they would have built the company up for that. They didn't. Hogan had nearly complete creative control over everything he was involved in. Nash was Head Booker. Those two only pushed themselves and their close friends (like Hall and Waltman {X-Pac}, and Scott Steiner). They squashed and buried everybody else. They (with Bischoff's approval) abused and misused WCW's amazing cruiserweight division which included the likes of Eddie Guerrero, Chris Benoit, Chris Jericho, and Rey Mysterio to the point that they quit the company. They took WCW's two biggest stars out of the picture. They changed the mega-popular Sting's gimmick and took him off TV and they put Flair into a steady stream of asinine storylines designed to discredit him. WCW fans hated that.































The nWo WAS popular (at first) so Nash pushed it over everything else...non-stop never-ending nWo. And they always won. The revolving door policy had people joining/leaving the nWo constantly. Eventually they just made more nWo factions to ensure every minute of every WCW show was about the nWo. Fans were getting sick of the constant non-stop nWo. Nash and Hogan didn't care. They just wanted as much money from WCW as they could squeeze from it before they killed it.































Goldberg gets a lot of flak from today's fans, but back then he was the only truly homegrown star Bischoff ever created and he was very popular. So, of course, Nash (as usual) sabotaged his gimmick and push. It wasn't really Nash's ego that made him do that...not entirely, anyway; it was his and Hogan's plan all along to destroy WCW. Goldberg was just another WCW star they ruined.































Nash, as Head Booker, was responsible for more bad storylines/angles than anybody else during the Monday Night War. Russo was hired near the end to perform a miracle. But not even the Head Writer for the Attitude Era could save the sinking Titanic that Nash and Hogan turned WCW into. Russo didn't kill WCW, or even contribute to it's death. He just couldn't resurrect it after the dirt started getting thrown on it's coffin.































Kevin Nash is most definitely a major reason WCW melted down and went out of business.

watch the rise and fall of wcw its a pretty good documentary they basically blamed nash hogan bischoff and russo for ruining bischoff got blamed cuz he didnt think he could fail after they over took wwe/f so he let hogan and nash run the show and run it into the ground russo came in at the end and while he was a great writer during attitude era it was mainly because vince wouldnt let him do the stupid things he did in wcw like put the title on himself and david arquette
