Rob Van Dam Calls WCW’s Invasion The Coolest Storyline In Wrestling

WWE Hall of Famer Rob Van Dam recently took to an episode of his “1 Of A Kind” podcast, where he talked about a number of topics including what for him is the coolest storyline in wrestling.

RVD said, “That was the coolest storyline ever in wrestling, I believe. To have WCW and ECW against WWF, which it was at the beginning of the Invasion still. That was when it was changing was right then at that moment, and that was unheard of. You know, not long before that WWF never even acknowledged there was any other organizations, or any other history or place for wrestlers to get experience. If they weren’t in WWF then it just didn’t happen.”

“And they were just coming out of that for Monday Night Wars. And so, times were changing really quick. It was exciting, they were acknowledging each other, parodying each other, poking at each other, it was awesome. And then it ended the way it did with WCW going under, and Vince acquiring what was left of the other wrestling companies. Something that he had been doing the whole time that he owned WWE.”
