Re: WWF 2001: The WCW Invasion

So.. let me get this straight. You re-write history as to how you would have done it, and these people just read through pages, upon pages, upon more pages of what happened in this imaginary world? Like a fantasy book or something? I know this sounds sarcastically rude, but I'm being serious. Is there a video?

Welcome to the "Be The Booker" section. Let me tell you how this works around here. One person starts a thread, in which he writes his version of a certain time period in wrestling or comes up with something completely new. Yeah, like a fantasy book, that's probably why it's called "Fantasy booking".

A video, what?! How could there be a video of something that didn't actually happen? Do you even read what you're writing?!

- He says thanks to the Board and thanks to Linda, Vince McMahon was handed 50% of the company on a silver platter, just like Vince McMahon has always been handed everything on a silver platter
- Bischoff says only a loser would take something that’s been handed to them on a silver platter
- Eric says he's not a loser, he’s a winner in life, because he's overcome obstacles that other people only dream about and achieved his goals against all odds
- He says he would like to take us on a journey back to last November, Survivor Series, and footage is shown of Goldberg pinning Steve Austin resulting in Eric Bischoff becoming the sole owner of the WWF

- Eric now asks the question he claims he’s been asked ever since last November, why he would offer Vince’s wife Linda to remain the CEO of the company

- Linda gets Vince to let go off Bischoff, who takes a deep breath and then begins to smile
- Linda pleads Bischoff to not tell the secret and repeatedly apologizes for voting against Bischoff during the meeting
- Bischoff says it’s too late for that and tells Linda to get on her knees and beg
- Against her husband’s orders, Linda gets down on one knee and starts to cry, but Bischoff says that’s not enough
- Linda gets down on both knees and Bischoff looks happy, while Vince is furious and ready to explode
- Bischoff says no matter what he always in the end and tells Linda to get up again
- A crying Linda tells Vince over and over again that she’s sorry and begins to leave
- McMahon starts walking up to Linda asking her what this is all about, when Eric Bischoff tells them that they’re not done yet
- Bischoff says like he said he always win in the end, so therefore one more little thing needs to happen so that he won’t reveal the secret and that is that Vince will forfeit their match at Wrestlemania right now and get the hell out of his company and his life for good
- McMahon steps back into the ring and teases a handshake only for him to punch Bischoff’s lights out
- Linda watches on in horror, knowing what this means and as soon as Bischoff comes back to his senses, he promises to show the whole world exactly what happened between Linda and himself next Monday on RAW
- With Bischoff smiling and Linda in complete shock, SmackDown goes off the air!

Re: WWF 2001: The WCW Invasion


- Eric Bischoff announced on SmackDown that he will reveal the secret as to why he offered Linda McMahon to remain the CEO of the company. What's that secret about? Will it affect Linda's future in the company? And what about her marriage to Vince McMahon? We'll find out Monday!

- After what happened on SmackDown, Goldberg was granted another match against Edge this Monday. Will Goldberg finally be able to take out Edge, just like his brother Christian? or will the Texas Rattlesnake ruin Goldberg's plan yet again?

- In another huge match, "Olmypic Gold Medallist" Kurt Angle takes on "Big Poppa Pump" Scott Steiner. Unlike last time, Stephanie will not be a factor, because the two will battle iside a Steel Cage!

- Also on RAW, we decide who will face Rey Mysterio for the Cruiserweight Championship at WrestleMania, when Billy Kidman, Jeff Hardy, Matt Hardy and Tajiri compete in a Fatal Four Way Match, Jazz defends her Women's Title against Trish Stratus and in Tag Team Action, Chris Jericho & Lance Storm take on the No. 1 Contenders for the Unified Tag Team Championship, The Dudley Boyz.

- Shawn Michaels, Triple H, Mick Foley, Ric Flair, Sting, US Champion Rob Van Dam and the entire NWO are also expected to be there, when the The Road To Wrestlemania continues this coming Monday on RAW!

Re: WWF 2001: The WCW Invasion

March 4, 2002 from Austin, Texas

KICKOFF: Goldberg vs Edge
- We kick off RAW this week with the Undisputed Champion Goldberg, who is scheduled to face Edge in a rematch from SmackDown
- Before Edge can make his way out, however, WWF owner Eric Bischoff comes down to the ring
- Bischoff says he hates to interrupt, but Edge will be not be "Next" because he's cancelling this match!
- Goldberg takes a mic and says Bischoff has already broken two laws: 1) Getting in HIS business, and 2) Pissing HIM off!
- Bischoff says Goldberg will have a chance to let his anger out on someone tonight on RAW, it just won’t be Edge
- Goldberg says the only replacement he accepts is “Stone Cold” Steve Austin
- Bischoff says it won’t be Steve Austin, but since McMahon has a match at WrestleMania against him, Vince deserves a little warm-up match
- Eric says that’s why tonight, for the first time ever, Vincent Kennedy McMahon will go one-on-one with The Undisputed Champion Goldberg!
- He says that way Vince will have his warm-up match and he doesn’t have to worry about Vince ruining the special moment, when he reveals Linda’s and his little secret to the whole world, so it’s a win/win for everybody
- Suddenly, Vince McMahon stomps down to the ring with a purpose, looking pissed
- Vince walks straight to Bischoff, threatening him, but Goldberg steps right in front Vince and Vince backs off
- Bischoff asks McMahon what the deal is, if the great, almighty Vince McMahon with the balls the size of grapefruits is scared all of a sudden
- McMahon gets a mic and asks Goldberg since when he lets anybody tell him what to do
- Goldberg seems to agree because he suddenly turns around and stares Bischoff down
- Goldberg tells Bischoff he will soften Vince up for him, but only if Bischoff gives him Austin in the same ring with him tonight
- At this point, the glass shatters and Stone Cold makes his way to the ring
- Goldberg is ready to go and Bischoff is trying everything he can to hold Goldberg back as Austin hits the ring
- Austin says he was in the back listen to these three jackasses out here making matches and excuses and it’s all a bunch of BS
- He says the fact of the matter is he’s going to WrestleMania to whip Goldberg’s ass and become the Undisputed Champion
- Stone Cold says, having said that, he really likes the idea of McMahon vs Goldberg and he can’t wait to see that
- Austin says he’s looking forward to this match so much that he’d like to see it in person and seeing as he did a hell of a job on SmackDown, he wants to be the referee
- Bischoff addresses Austin, saying he's not going to let him ruin the main event
- He says, however, since Goldberg wants Austin in the same ring, he makes Austin the referee, and Goldberg doesn’t like it one bit
- Bischoff continues that Austin, however, has to call the match right down the middle and if he doesn’t, he loses his shot at the Undisputed Title at WrestleMania
- Goldberg then tells Stone Cold that after he gets done with McMahon, “AUSTIN IS NEXT”
- McMahon steps in and tells Goldberg that after Austin is done with him at WrestleMania, it’s not “WHO’S NEXT?”, it’s “WHO’S GOLDBERG?”
- Goldberg sets his sights on McMahon, but suddenly turns around and spears Austin
- Both, McMahon and Bischoff are shocked by this and Vince goes to check on Austin, not realizing Goldberg getting ready for another Spear
- McMahon gets back up, before turning around, just as Goldberg approaches
- Vince quickly moves out of the way and Goldberg accidentally spears Bischoff
- With both Austin and Bischoff down, Goldberg stares down McMahon, who is obviously scared, knowing he can suffer that same fate later tonight

ON STAGE: Eric Bischoff
- After the break, Eric Bischoff is being helped out by Chief of Staff William Regal
- We see how both Austin and Bischoff got up from the Spear during the commercial and then Austin hitting Bischoff with a Stone Cold Stunner
- When Regal and Bischoff reach the top of the ramp, Bischoff demands a mic and says that this was supposed to a Eric Bischoff night, and it’s gonna be a damn Eric Bischoff night
- He reminds everybody that Eric Bischoff always gets the last laugh and always wins in the end
- Bischoff says that Vince is gonna get his later tonight, but until then, he might wanna take a look at this footage
- Eric says he’s a man of his word, so he wants Kevin Dunn to roll the footage right now
- Bischoff wants everybody to turn their attention to the TitanTron, where a video starts playing, which shows the McMahon mansion
- Eric approaches the house, rings the door bell, and is being let in by the McMahon’s home help
- Bischoff asks if Vince isn’t here and the person tells him no, so Bischoff wants to be taken to Linda McMahon
- Bischoff makes fun of the ridiculously big house, when they arrive at Linda’s home office
- There she is, Linda McMahon, who is surprised when she sees Eric Bischoff walking in
- Bischoff laughs that Vince McMahon is looking for a job right now, while he's actually at the McMahon house!
- Linda asks Bischoff to leave, but Bischoff says he's not here to hurt her, he's here to please her
- Bischoff says he built WCW from the ground up, while Vince McMahon had the WWF handed to him and then he was even handed his creation, WCW, but thank god Shane bought it
- Linda blames Eric Bischoff for ruining her family by turning Shane and Steph against their own parents
- Bischoff says she shouldn’t blame him, Vince is the one to blame for all of this
- Eric says Vince tried to run him out of business, just like Vince ran his father out of business and now Vince suffered the same fate as his father
- He tells Linda not to worry though, she can stay the CEO, because for one she’s been doing a great job for decades now
- Bischoff says the other reason being Linda can be a real asset with the Board of Directors and most importantly Vince seeing Linda getting up every morning to go work for Eric Bischoff has to eat Vince alive
- Eric Bischoff tells Linda that she will enjoy working closely with him all day, just as much as she'll enjoy this
- Bischoff draws closer to Linda, but she stops him and Bischoff asks her if she likes her job, and more importantly, if she likes the big house, the cars, the jewelry, everything because if he fired her, all of this could be gone
- Eric then holds Linda’s hand behind her back and then lays a big kiss on her!
- Linda is fighting it at first, but after a couple of moments, she actually seems to enjoy it
- Bischoff then asks Linda to show him the bedroom, at which point, the footage stops and we see an irate Linda McMahon in the Production truck yelling at Kevin Dunn for showing this footage
- Dunn apologizes, saying he had no choice and Linda tells him to not show any of this again

TAG MATCH: The Dudley Boyz vs Chris Jericho & Lance Storm
- During the match, the Tag Champions Hall and Nash, walk out on the entrance ramp to scout their opponents at WrestleMania

- Angle says Steiner got lucky twice, but tonight in the steel cage, his luck will run out

- Cruiserweight Champion Rey Mysterio comes out and joins the commentators for this match
- Jeff Hardy has Kidman pinned after the Swanton Bomb, but Torrie Wilson distracts the referee, allowing Mysterio to sneak into the ring and hit Hardy with the Cruiserweight Title belt
- At the same time, Lita pulls Torrie off the apron, while Matt takes care of Tajiri
- Matt now sees his brother knocked out with Mysterio standing outside the ring, title belt in hand
- He now has to make the choice to capitalize or do the right thing and he doesn’t know what to do
- Matt decides to do the right thing and instead of going for the cover, he goes to check on his brother
- Mysterio then quickly hits the ring again and also knocks out Matt with the title belt and the ref calls for the bell, ending the match in a No-Contest
- Tajiri hits the ring to attack Mysterio, but he slips out and escapes the assault

- He adds that he doesn’t want to imagine what happened after that, which upsets Linda
- Linda asks him how he could think that she went any further
- She says the only thing we didn’t see was how she told Bischoff that she would remain the CEO, but she will not be Bischoff’s property and then asked him to leave, which he did
- Linda says the only reason why she wanted to keep the job, was not for her, but only for Vince, because she loved him and she would do everything she can to help him get his company back
- Linda says she shouldn’t have let Bischoff kiss her and she shouldn’t have defended Eric time and time again during meetings with the Board of Directors and she’s ashamed and takes full responsibility for it
