the WWF had no talent during Invasion.


the acquired WCW and ECW talent was also the B-list.


it was not a good storyline


could have been better.

The Undertaker/Paul Bearer/Kane storyline in the summer of 1997. Wrestling was at its peak 10 years ago.

The invasion storyline was a total mess, for reasons others have already laid out. Triple H and Chris Benoit were both injured. None of the top WCW stars, except for Booker T (if he even counts) were in the mix yet, and by the time they were later on, it was too late to matter. Even if, say, they'd done it with the nWo instead of bringing them in in anticlimactic fashion months later, it wouldn't have made any sense, considering the original nWo storyline was that they were invading WCW on behalf of the WWF.

There have been others that, nothing else considered, were far worse. But considering the massive scope of the storyline, how big it was and how far short it fell from what it should have been, the 2001 invasion storyline ranks among the WWF's all-time failures, without a doubt.

As far as the best storyline?

Easy.

Austin/McMahon.

You had the most insanely popular star in the history of the business (yes, even moreso than Hogan, who was, to a great extent, media hype, whereas Austin's stardom came entirely from how bat**** insane the fans were for him), the antihero everyman. You have the jerk, billionaire boss. They hate each other and beat the hell out of each other at every turn.

What more do you need?

If you want to go back a few more years, Savage/Flair, fighting over Miss Elizibeth in...I wanna say '91, '92, was an all-time great.

Please tell me that was a joke. Vince McMahon BLEW it with that storyline. Don't you think it was pathetic that "WCW" was being represented by "Stone Cold" Steve Austin and Shane McMahon? Stephanie McMahon was the new "owner" of ECW? Fans wanted to see Hogan, Hall, Nash, Sting, Goldberg, Flair, Booker T, DDP, Eric Bischoff, Scott Steiner, etc. The pathetic thing is they wait until AFTER the invasion storyline to sign most of the top names. That's just horrible booking. Vince McMahon should have signed all of the big names and added some more talent to WCW and gave them their own show and built them up as a seperate brand and then at a WrestleMania have WCW vs. WWF.

Imagine, if at the Invasion PPV this was the card:

Hulk Hogan vs. The Rock
Goldberg vs. "Stone Cold" Steve Austin
Undertaker vs. Sting
Eric Bischoff vs. Vince McMahon
Scott Steiner vs. Kurt Angle
Ric Flair vs. Triple H
The Outsiders vs. The Dudleys
Booker T vs. Chris Benoit
Kidman vs. Chris Jericho

Now that would have been a great PPV.

One storyline that was really good (even tho it only lasted two nights):

*Mick Foley tells Edge and Christian they can't challenge the Hardyz for the tag team titles

*So Edge and Christian dress up as the Conquistadors in full body gold suits and beat the Hardyz for the belts

*The next night on Raw, E and C plan to have some losers dress up as the Conquistadors so they can beat THEM for the tag belts

*But the Hardyz jump the fake Conquistadors and beat E and C to retain the belts, but when Foley found out it was the Hardyz he gave them the titles back because they beat the team that beat them the night before technically

MY favourite was Jeff Hardy startign a mini feud by kicking Taker into Tommy Dreamers vomit, and starting a streak of about a month that would end with one of the best Ladder Matches ever,

One good rivalry that no one talks about is Undertaker/Kamala from mid-late 1992. After Undertaker won by DQ at Summerslam, Taker sat up after 3 splashes and stalked Kamala out of Wembley Stadium. The feud ended at Survivor Series in a coffin match which Taker won. Kamala returned in early 1993 as a face. The rivalry was short, but it was good and it ended with a unique match.


Another good rivalry was Undertaker/Yokozuna from 1994, though it technically started in late 1993. Yokozuna thought he could manhandle Taker, but he was highly mistaken. This led to two casket matches, one at the Royal Rumble, won by Yokozuna, though you could say the match was won by Crush, Tenryu, The Great Kabuke, Jeff Jarrett, Adam Bomb, Bam Bam Bigelow, The Headshrinkers, and Diesel. The rematch was at Survivor Series with Taker winning.
