WCW/NBC Special That Never Happened?

I seem to vaguely remember WCW in early 1999 striking a deal with NBC to produce some kind of televised special.  Any ideas why that never happened?  
I don't know if there was specific reasons but there was never really a "deal" in place as far as I know.  There was definitely talks and I know Hogan was trying to position the rematch with Goldberg where he got the title back for it, but nothing ever really happened.
