Rebooking the WCW/ECW Invasion: Part 6
Follow Sportskeeda for the latest WWE news, rumors and all other wrestling news.
Now is the time to introduce the nWo into the storyline. In the real world, the nWo debuted as a group in February 2002, over two months later but were available at this point in time if WWE wanted.
In my revised history, Nash had been part of the Invasion storyline for many months and will now be playing a much larger role.
The nWo are here to take out Stone Cold after he cost Chris Jericho the WWF Championship at Survivor Series.
Stone Cold versus the nWo will be a central storyline in the Invasion from this point forward.
This article will focus on the run-up to Vengeance, which will see the WWF and WCW titles unified as was the case in the real world.
A reminder: there will be three more articles in this series as my version of the Invasion will peak and conclude at Wrestlemania X-8.
In the upcoming part seven of this series, Triple H will return and play a full role in the WWF versus WCW/ECW war; in reality, he missed the entirety of the Invasion after it lasted a paltry four months
