      And this

      WCW maint eventers all waited out their contracts. That’s it. Smarks would’ve never let them wait a year to run an invasion angle

      The worst part is WWE had the option to buy out all of those contracts, and the PPVs buys that Invasion did (even the bad version we got) would have been enough to cover those contract buyouts.

    The 2nd Austin heel turn along with WCW Jobbers being in the Invasion. Vince also had no idea what he wanted to do with WCW and couldn't handle his stars being out popped by WCW ECW guys so he turned it into McMahon drama bullshit that everyone was already tired of by 2000.

    Vince originally wanted to have WCW be it's own show/brand. But Viacom didn't want more wrestling content on their networks.

      Not true. Vince killed it at the last moment and pissed everyone off.

      This was in an Observer Rewind. WWF was actually going to purchase WCW in late 2000, and the show would continue to air on Turner tv. But Viacom nixed the deal because they had a new deal with WWF and didn't want them airing programming on a competing network.

        There's more to it than that. Originally when they were gonna do the brand split, they wanted WCW to be the opposing brand, but there wasn't a single fricking network that wanted to be associated with WCW at that point. So it ended up just being RAW and Smackdown.

    Made the invasion about the McMahons, stupid.
    Shitters like bob holly didnt want to give up their "spot", so they cried to vince.

    Kronic would have been awesome, even just the new blood guys. Then slowly bring in the big names as the contracts expired.

      That's what they did. That's why Hogan, Nash, Hall, Steiner, and Goldberg all debuted in 2002-2003 after the Invasion.

    kevin dunn told vince wcw wrestlers shouldn't be presented as stronger than wwf wrestlers. They also wouldn't pay for the actual stars in wcw who were still on massive time warner contracts

    Because Vince booked it like a child who held petty grudges. Because he is a child who holds petty grudges. The entire concept was to bury every WCW and ECW talent, and since he had no competition and held a monopoly, profit wasn't an issue. It was fricked up. The fallout was years of declining ratings when WWE should have been riding high.

    Hindsight is everything. In hindsight, Austin's heel turn was a bad idea but it could have carried 2001 so for 2002, the WCW invasion kicks off for real. '02 would have been a full year of WCW vs WWF/E as the real stars people wanted would have been out of their contracts.

    Reminder that it was never Vince's fault he did the best he could with the limited roster he got as all the main eventers chose to sit at home.

    they didnt. WCW was a dead brand by 2001. Vince was right to keep Hall, Nash, and Hogan at home, too. When they did jump none of the three lasted all that long. They weren't worth overpaying for.

        Face Austin vs Goldberg happening during the invasion would have drawn insane dimes. All that would have needed to happen for it to not be shit was for vince to not treat the invasion as his personal victory lap (and better yet, not have the entire angle be centered around the same old trite mcmahon family drama)

          If all the names jumped in 2001 doing the dream matches at SummerSlam would have been the way to go, instead of a convoluted invasion storyline. Shit, they could have turned the King of the Ring tournament into having all the big matchups with the finials being for the Unified WWE/WCW championship.

    The WCW guys carried the WCW locker room attitude with them. The WCW locker room had a an "every man for himself" culture and the WWF guys responded to that like they weren't interested in doing business.
