Always thought it would be a fun challenge to try and book the Invasion with the guys the WWF could only get. So with DDP & Booker being your top talents for WCW and trying to make it work. It would be a difficult challenge but I'm sure it would be pretty fun. Jobbing DDP out wouldn't be an option.

& Kingpin, that idea sounds quite epic, would have been cool if you had gone through with it.

the BTB Yellow Pages.

http://www.wrestlingforum.com/btb-re...low-pages.html

it is a great concept (at least I think so) where in one stickied post, all of the current active threads are there for people to see. Like a Yellow Pages or Phone Book sorta thing.

The last time this was updated was like two and a half years ago. Hopefully I am not the only one who thinks this can be a neat idea.

hey guys long time member just returned

Funny how everyone is talking about the Invasion angle and I have started a project on that subject, like many have said how can you change so much but keep the interest, hopefully I can do that

Before I started my btb thread I was thinking of either doing The Invasion storyline, WWE 1995/1996 or WWE 2004. I planned out match cards for these time periods, went well but I decided to go with WWE 2004. Flux raised a lot of good points about The Invasion angle. It is a difficult time period to book successfully. I tried making cards but thought of 2 ideas.

1)When Shane was announced as the owner, he has a stip for his WrestleMania match. If he wins, Nitro takes the Smackdown slot. Shane wins and then they can even hold a draft after WrestleMania 17 where some ex WCW guys on the WWE roster go to WCW. WCW and WWE would alternate monthly pay-per-views. The brands are kept separate just like how the brand split was created. WCW is established as itself as its own show for a year without zero mention of the other on either show. Then once the real big WCW stars arrive then they have a brand war. However I struggled to come up with great cards especially for the WWE ppvs due to a weak midcard. It was fine for one or 2 events but then it was difficult. Plus the cards I did werenít as good as the real ones for that time period. I wouldnít include ECW as a brand in the storyline but the stars were picked up as free agents, some to WWE some to WCW.

2)Go with an Invasion Angle which i found a lot easier to come up with better cards. The angle went well at the start with the random attacks but after King of the Ring here are my ideas.

-Stephanie McMahon will not be involved in this storyline

-Heyman remains as Raw announcer and he is not part of the WCW brand.

-They are not called the Alliance.

-Another problem was that they had way too many titles so sometimes for my ppv cards some of the belts arenít defended so at some point I had to do loads of unification matches.

-Some of the ECW guys are picked up as free agents. Some in WCW such as RVD, some defect to WCW(Rhyno, Tajiri)

-Rock vs Austin clash again and Rock wins the WWE Title at SummerSlam.

-Austin, Angle, Christian, Test do not join WCW. Dean Malenko, Tajiri and Perry Saturn end up in WCW.

-I booked the Invasion with the guys that the WWE could only get during the storyline so no Goldberg, Sting. No injured guys like HHH, Benoit, Rikishi and No Eddie Guerrero because he was fired.

-Booker T, DDP, Big Show(defects to WCW) Mike Awesome, RVD, Lance Storm, Raven, Kanyon, Tajiri and Rhyno would be the top talents in WCW. William Regal and Jericho also when they defect later on.

-Big Show was doing fuck all during the Invasion storyline, he deserved better. Would have been an awesome fit in the Alliance.

-DDP, Raven, Tajiri, Storm, Kanyon and Awesome would not be jobbers. They would be booked well.

-I wouldnít go with an inaugural brawl for Invasion. If I want to stretch this storyline out then I wouldnít do too many big multiman matches. Save the 5 on 5 for Survivor Series and then another big match for No Way Out which will be War Games.

For the Invasion PPV Iíd do a world cup of Wrestling. Sort of like Starrcade 95. 9 matches. If WCW win then they get Nitro as a brand and Smackdown is history.

I will give an example of a card I created for Invasion which is a lot better than the original card.

INVASION Ė The World Cup of Wrestling

Edge and Christian vs The Impact Players(Storm and Credible)
Winners: Edge and Christian (1-0 to the WWE)

Taka Michinoku vs Tajiri
Winner: Tajiri (1-1)

William Regal vs Dean Malenko
Winner: William Regal (2-1 to the WWE)

Chris Jericho vs Rhyno
Winner: Chris Jericho (3-1 to the WWE)

RVD vs Jeff Hardy
Winner: RVD (3-2)

Kane vs Mike Awesome
Winner: Mike Awesome (3-3)

The Undertaker vs Raven
Winner: The Undertaker (4-3 to the WWE)

Kurt Angle vs DDP
Winner: DDP (4-4)

Stone Cold Steve Austin vs Booker T
This is the main event. Itís champion vs champion but the titles arenít on the line here. Itís 4-4 and The Big Show who has no match on this ppv would interfere and costs Austin the match and joins WCW. Booker T wins as WCW win the Cup 5-4 and Smackdown is history and WCW get Nitro.


Iíve written up cards all the way till No Way Out 2002 when The nWo come in. No Way Out is perfect for a War Games Match as itís NO WAY OUT lol. My main event is The NWO(Hogan, Hall, Nash and Big Show) vs Austin, Rock, Undertaker and HHH. Hall and Nash try to get HHH on their side but he refuses to join. Not going to post the whole ppv cards but if you want me to post them then let me know. Iíve got matches like DDP vs The Rock, DDP vs Austin, Austin vs Booker, Mike Awesome vs The Undertaker, Kurt Angle vs Lance Storm, Undertaker and Kane vs Mike Awesome and The Big Show for my ppv cards and so on. Survivor Series would not be the end of WCW, the WWE win the 5 on 5 elimination match but the stipulation is if WWE win they get Smackdown back and Nitro is history. Then Flair comes in the next night and it continues on. If I was doing a full btb on this then Iíd explain it properly but that was just an example. Hope these ideas help if someone decides to do an Invasion Thread. Iíd love to start up an Invasion thread but I just donít wanna leave my other thread, if I leave that then I may not continue that on lol.

What I'd really like to see here is an Invasion thread with the guys that WWE could get, the realistic roster for that time period. It can be done with a few switches here and there so someone please do it.

Yip, gotta admit, I've got a whole Invasion storyline planned out. Got PPV cards written from WrestleMania X-Seven all the way to WrestleMania X-8. But I think the main reason I never ran with it was the fact mine was pure fantasy. I had Goldberg, Sting, Hogan, Nash, Hall, Flair, Steiner, etc all involved, all making their debuts at various points of the story. Would never have been one for realism junkies.

Maybe one day I'll just write it out in monthly recaps or something. I know I had plenty of fun putting it all together.

That actually sounds pretty awesome. I'm not one to be a stickler for realism so I'd certainly be interested in reading.

One thing I would find interesting would be a comedy BTB. Just throwing something random out there.

Fuck realism, if the booking is good, nobody will care. And if they do, they're a dickhead.
