Vince is a far too petty man to ever do right by a storyline like the Invasion, wherein he would have had to make the wrestlers that competed against his program look good. Many a promoter would probably be too vindictive to do an Invasion justice, but Vince even more so.
I remember first learning about the Attitude era when my cousin showed me the documentary WWE produced on the Monday Night War (which I now know is seriously flawed, but them's the breaks when you go to WWE productions for history lessons), which ended by showing the famous clip with the swerve that Shane McMahon had bought WCW. Having no knowledge of the Invasion's ultimate quality, and not having a way to know that the McMahon family drama (Dallas by way of Jerry Springer) had been hurting the product for a while by this point, I was so shocked by this cliffhanger that I literally dreamed about how cool the following events must have been. Years later, I got onto Wikipedia and my dreams were dashed, but man, when I saw it, that was as thrilling as it must have been to see Locutus of Borg hail the Enterprise.
