In no way, no version of reality, does WWE make TNA look like a threat of any kind at any point.
Edit: if it wasn't clear, I meant to refer to the WCW invasion.
DDP, Booker T, Buff Bagwell, Lance Storm and...maybe Hugh Morrus vs Rock, Austin, Undertaker, Angle, Jericho (or Kane, HHH, Show). There was a reason Shane was in the SS match.
Yeah, it was the lack of WCW star power.
