Look at the main event from Survivor Series Team WWF v Team WCW.

WCW had Booker T as the only guy out of that team that actually arrived as part of the invasion.

Having Austin & Angle turn on WWF and also include ECW in the WCW faction made the storyline horrible, as did some of the contracts that WWF bought out i.e. Stasiak, Stamboli, Sanders.

With the talent they had, they needed to solidify DDP and Booker T as bigger threats. But they didn't have enough drawing power from WCW, so they needed to add in former ECW stars. They also never should have turned Austin heel - at the beginning of the Invasion he came back as a babyface and was insanely over. But Team WCW had little star power, so they decided to double down on his heel turn, whereas it probably should have been Angle or Jericho.

But out of the WCW guys they had... without any WWF turns or adding in ECW the below is probably the best they could have done. And they should have established DDP and Booker T better:

Steve Austin, Undertaker, Kane, Kurt Angle, Chris Jericho
vs
Diamond Dallas Page, Booker T, William Regal, Lance Storm, Buff Bagwell

I was disappointed in the Invasion angle just like everyone else but one thing I have figured out over the years is that for them to have done it right, they would have had to change things right from the start. They should have never announced the purchase without securing a tv spot first. That put expectations soooooo high to begin with that they screwed themselves right from the start. Other problem is how much do you use old WCW storylines. People mention the nWo being part of Team WCW but why would they be? Really, there would be no need to the nWo to be part of them since they wanted to take WCW down. In this case, shouldn't they really be part of Team WWF or a totally separate team? I think you are starting to see the issues I mean.

Personally, i would have let WCW close and them bring a handful of guy over to the roster - midcarders, Booker T, maybe a couple top names but no nWo. Over the course of about 6 months, have them lose and be treated as outsiders that no one likes. Then more WCW guys start showing up - a slow invasion where you start getting bigger names. Now WWF is getting worried - what are all these former WCW guys doing here? As they start going at it, the nWo shows up and starts fighting with WCW again. People think it is a bit of a rehash but you only do that a month until they turn on WWF as well claiming they were the top guys in both companies and they are back to take over. Not only do you now have your Invasion, you have the Monday night wars in one company. Reason why you take 6-12 months to do all this is so you can look at the wrestlers and figure out exactly why they would work with or fight against certain guys so it makes sense. But you would have made tons of money - enough to pay for the WCW guys and to give the WWF guys extra money. You could have had each team recruit new wrestlers so you wouldn't have had to use all your top guys all the time. I think it would have worked but you just had to be careful that things made sense and that you didn't toss people together just because.
