The feud kicked off on May 23, following a major injury to Triple H on Raw the week before and would build to the Invasion PPV two months later. The Invasion show would be replacing the annual Fully Loaded event that had been the annual July event prior. This event would become the most bought PPV event in WWE history not called WrestleMania which is something to write home about when you think about the idea that it only happened once.
There is no doubt that everyone has their take on how the Invasion could've been done better, and that's part of the fun of wrestling asking what if and talking about it. There was more to the story if plans went ahead like they originally set up to, but plans changed. I will say that as far as how things went I think if the WWE did have some bigger names their is no way the show could've been done in July; as they would've needed a lot more build.
