WWF vs WCW vs ECW; Three Way Five Man Survivor Series Elimination match.

Tag Line: The Final Battle. 

Participants 

WWF: Austin, Rock, Angle, Undertaker, HBK,

WCW : Hollywood Hogan, Flair, Sting, Goldberg, The Giant

ECW: Mick Foley/Cactus Jack, Rey Mysterio, RVD, Tommy Dreamer, Raven. (I’m tempted to replace Raven with Sandman or Mike Awesome, also tempted to take Rey out but he’s is a big star obviously)

Angle:

After WWF bought WCW in 2001, and ECW was out of business, the Invasion Angle was launched. What potentially could have been the greatest angle ever turned out to be one of the most disappointing. The reasons are many, and not all of them WWF’s fault. Many top stars like Hogan, Flair, Goldberg, etc, actually had contracts through AOL Time Warner, hence couldn’t appear on WWF programming anyway.

I could write an entire book on how the Invasion angle could have turned out, but for simplicity sake let’s just talk about this match. We’ll pretend this was the main event for Survivor Series 2001, one big blowout match where only one company could survive. This was the kind of match needed to end the Monday Night Wars. 

Who would have won? Vince always put his own stars over, so of course WWF.

Who should win? It would have been healthy story wise to have WCW win to keep that brand alive and maybe continue having it’s own show.

  1. You’re right about WCW winning this match to drag out the feud. Unfortunately this angle mirrored many other invasion angles, where the company that bought out its competitor felt the need to show their guys were superior. I think the terrible period in the 2001-2005 could have been different had the WCW invasion been booked better.

    The current Nexus invasion is at least playing out a bit better. All of the current talk of invasion got me to thinking about missed opportunities for WWF invasions in the 1980s.

    Thanks…

    Thanks, I don’t watch wrestling much now but the Nexus angle looks interesting. Though I don’t understand why it’s exclusive to Raw. Shouldn’t they invade all of WWE?
