The Rock and Booker T: Still headline the re-booked Summerslam 2001 card
The Rock and Booker T: Still headline the re-booked Summerslam 2001 card

The kind feedback I received for part 1 of this series has been much appreciated. This is a fun but massively time consuming and difficult undertaking.

The re-booked aspects of the rest of the Invasion will be much more detailed from this point forward, as post-Invasion 2001 was where the wheels begun to truly fall off in the storyline and the WWF found that they could not bring themselves to book the WCW/ECW talent over their own WWF superstars.

This slideshow will introduce Goldberg into the storyline, where in this alternate universe, "Da Man" has been bought out of his Time Warner contract. Goldberg underwent shoulder surgery in January 2001 and in this re-booked version of the Invasion, presumes the usual four-six month recovery time frame was sufficient for him to be able to return to wrestling full time.

I haven't forgotten about Sting either. Watch this space for an appearance by the Icon.

The WCW Cruiserweight Tag Team Championship was retired upon the WWF's acquisition in March 2001 and has not been re-instated in the re-booked universe. Any other titles not listed below can be presumed de-activated.

Champion roll call (as of July 22, 2001)

WWF Champion - Stone Cold

IC Champion - Albert

European Champion - Matt Hardy

Hardcore Champion - Jeff Hardy

Light-Heavyweight Champion - X-Pac

WWF Tag Team Champions - The APA

WCW Champion - Booker T

US Champion - Booker T

Cruiserweight Champion - Billy Kidman

WCW Tag Team Champions - Chuck Palumbo & Sean O'Haire

That is a lot of Championships and to simplify things, there will be a succession of unification matches over the coming storylines to make each title mean more.

Let's get to the post-Invasion Raw as SK re-books the build to Summerslam!
