— Ten years ago today, World Wrestling Entertainment announced the purchase of World Championship Wrestling from Turner Broadcasting System, Inc. WWE Director of Digital Media Content Joey Styles took to Twitter to chastise his employer for botching the subsequent “Invasion” storyline.
He wrote, “10 years ago today WWF bought WCW…tried a WCW vs. WWF story without Flair, Sting, Nash, Goldberg, etc…BOMB! Then tried WWECW…BIG BOMB!”
It is widely believed that WWE cost themselves millions of dollars by not utilizing big-name WCW talent for the storyline, such as Hulk Hogan, Bill Goldberg, Sting and Lex Luger.
