    Yeah I actually remember watching that show and learning that Blassie had passed away, it was a sad day in Wrestling thats for sure.

    I love the shot where hes with Mohamad Ali, it's wonderful.

    I loved this storyline, as well, by the way. It was such a creative way to integrate ECW and WCW...they could of just added the wrestlers to the mix without a reason.

    I remember the first night a group of them ran out on a match (it might of been just the ECW wrestlers, I'm not sure). I had taped the show, and I marked SO BAD, lol. I hit the rewind button several times on that one.

    I remember that as well, it was great. It was the perfect way to bring in the WCW and ECW into the WWE. I loved when Booker T first showed up, that was simply awesome. The only think that I hated was that Stone Cold turned his back on the WWE. I don't think the WWE should of done that.

    I liked it at the time; it was hilarious and incredibly surprising. I love when writers pull something like that, because a lot of the times fans like you and I can guess what's going to happen. Plus, it was HUGE when he came back for the WWE.

    I actually hated the Invasion storyline, it was the beginning of the end for my wrestling watching days. Buying WCW was the biggest mistake they could've made, I mean, they had to but still, WWF/E was so much better when it was competing against the powerhouse WCW.

    The Invasion angle sucked because the big named WCW wrestlers didnt come to WWE. Booker T was the biggest star who did.

    How can you guys say it sucked? Honestly it was great. I agree with you Millz that a lot of the top notch wrestlers from WCW didn't join the WWF after getting bought out from them, but you still had a few great ones. I wish Sting and Goldberg would of came during that time, but I was still amazed by that great storyline, and I am shocked that you hated it, especially you Millz.

    I just didnt care about Hugh Morris, Shawn Stasiak and Mike Awesome invading the WWE. If it was Goldberg, Sting and Hogan then we'll talk.

    I liked the Angle/McMahon/Austin stuff but that was about it. RVD was put on the map as a result so that was good. But I thought overall the angle kinda sucked. This should have been the biggest storyling in the history of the company and I dont think it lived up to the hype.
