The way big feuds should be booked
Watching the Triple H/Lesnar feud and Triple H/Undertaker feud has made me think, that they were actually great feuds. Not because of the promos, or the storyline but the way they were booked. Neither Triple H or Undertaker wrestled each other until Wrestlmania and Lesnar and Triple H didn't wrestle until Summerslam. This to me is great booking, almost Boxing/MMA type booking, where two wrestlers don't meet in the ring until their scheduled match. I love that type of booking in wrestling too because it makes the matches more special. Now of course that maybe due to all those wrestlers having part time contracts, but I've seen it with the current CM Punk/John Cena feud as well. The only time Cena and Punk have been in the ring with each other was at Summerslam and even then Big Show was involved. But apart from that they've been kept separate. I just hope WWE doesn't put Cena and Punk in the ring with each other in the next couple of Raws leading up to Night Of Champions because I think it makes the NOC match more special. It hypes the matches up better I think.
It has become a pet peeve of mine, seeing wrestlers who are feuding over titles being put in the ring with each other before their scheduled title match. I hated Dolph Ziggler's feud with Punk going into Royal Rumble because they fought so many times before the Rumble match and the hype for the match was weak. Same thing for Punk and Daniel Bryan. I know people love seeing Punk and Bryan wrestle but it would make it all the more special if WWE held off all their matches with each other until the PPVs, no matches between PPVs like on Raw or Smackdown. Maybe the odd tag team match or special stipulation. But ultimately a title feud or a big feud should hold off on putting the wrestlers in the ring with each other until the PPV. Again it just creates a lot more anticipation and hype if we didn't see them wrestle for free on Raw and Smackdown every week.
