Trivia

Prior to the Invasion storyline, the July PPV event was titled Fully Loaded, which would help build story lines until SummerSlam. However, as a result of the ongoing Invasion storyline, which would have seen a resurgent WCW and/or ECW promotions under the auspices of WWF should it be a success, the July PPV was renamed Invasion by Linda McMahon, with the idea that every match on the card would have WWF wrestlers take on members of the WCW/ECW Alliance.

Everything was well build-up, the tension was here and the stakes were high. Given that both WWF and WCW-ECW had their 10 best superstars in the main event, the rest of the card did suffer from it. While it's not a great PPV, it was not bad either.

Match 1: Edge & Christian vs. Mike Awesome & Lance Storm Solid match...nothing special but a good way to get off with Invasion. Lance Storm could have been a top wrestler IMO ..shame he was so underused in WWF. 5.5/10

Match 2: Earl Hebner w/ WWF Referees vs Nick Patrick w/ WCW Referees Special Referee - Mick Foley Hahaha..wth? Great to see Mick Foley. The fans were actually pretty much into the "match". The match was horrible of course but it was fun. 3/10 (3 for the fun and Mick foley)

Match 3: APA vs. Chuck Palumbo & Sean O'Haire Match I love APA and the passion they showed in the Invasion angle. Chuck and O'Haire can be quality as well. Like the opener, it was solid but not great. 5.5/10

Match 4: X-Pac vs. Kidman I expected a little more from these two high flyers (well if you can consider X-Pac so)...again not bad but not great either. 5.5/10

Match 5: Raven vs. William Regal Like Storm, I think Raven was underused by WWF, specially in the Invasion angle. The match was forgettable. 4/10

Match 6: Shawn Stasiak, Chris Kanyon, and Hugh Morrus vs. Big Show, Albert, and Billy Gunn Good to see Billy Gunn back on PPV. Nothing special in the match. 5/10 (pretty average PPV so far)

Match 7: Tazz vs. Tajiri Match Not bad at all. Tajiri is great...love those kick. 6.5/10

Match 8: Hardcore Championship-Rob Van Dam vs. Jeff Hardy Fantastic and exactly what I was expecting from these two great wrestlers. Had it all...match of the night. 9.5/10 (should have been a little longer)

Match 9: Bra and Panties Match -Trish Stratus & Lita vs. Stacy Keibler & Torrie Wilson How hot are these four? I actually enjoyed this a lot...but I wanted all four to lose.:D Quote of the night; Michael cole "Why am I calling wrestling moves?!?" 7/10 (7 for reason other that wrestling)

Match 10: Inaugural Brawl Team WWF (Austin, Angle, Kane, Taker, Y2J) vs. Team WCW/ECW (Booker, DDP, Dudleys, Rhyno) Highly enjoyable contest with a lot of tension..I really liked it. The ending (shocking for some, predictable for others) was a nice twist in the plot. Good. 8/10
