Invasion (also capitalized InVasion) was a professional wrestling pay-per-view event produced by the Christian Championship Wrestling (CCW). It took place on May 31, 2008 at the Reliant Stadium in Houston, Texas. The official theme song was "The Fight Song" by Marilyn Manson.
Invasion was the first pay-per-view to feature the ongoing Invasion storyline, which featured wrestlers from the CCW taking on a combined force of wrestlers from National Wrestling Alliance, World Championship Wrestling (WCW), World Wrestling All-Stars, and World Wrestling Entertainment, later known as The Alliance. The event featured CCW wrestlers facing NWA, WCW, WWA, and WWE wrestlers. The main event, dubbed the "Inaugural Brawl," was a battle royal match between Team CCW and Team WCW/WWE/WWA/NWA.
It started on January 8, 2008 when Christian Championship Wrestling bought American Wrestling Alliance and Global Wrestling Alliance away from the monopolizing National Wrestling Alliance and their merging companies. Maximillion Pegasus, who owned National Wrestling Alliance and World Wrestling All-Stars with a work agreement with World Championship Wrestling, began attacking Christian Championship Wrestling and World Wrestling Entertainment simultaneously. Around the end of March 2008, World Wrestling Entertainment and Christian Championship Wrestling made an agreement that they would stick together as long as they not interfered with each other's work related issues. By mid April, World Wrestling Entertainment turned on Christian Championship Wrestling on a wrong information that Maximillion Pegasus gave to the WWE. By mid May, Christian Championship Wrestling issued a challenge to Maximillion and crew into a battle royal on May 31, 2008 in Houston with the winner taking control over the losing teams. Maximillion did not think twice about it and agreed to the terms.
