Hogan/the nWo in 2002

  Was the nWo angle with Hogan, Hall, and Nash in the WWE in 2002 supposed to have lasted longer than it did if Hogan didn't get the type of crowd reaction that he did at W.M. 18 against the Rock, thus more or less forcing his babyface turn?  

Nope, they already knew Hogan was turning babyface sooner rather than later because they weren't complete idiots, so most of the turn was already in motion.
