First, booking and hype are 2 different things. You can build a good feud without hype or the opposite.
BFG 2011 had solid booking my ass, most matches you saw were made in the last few weeks... Jerry Lynn shows up "hey I'm gonna screw you to have a match at BFG".
The only matches with long term booking was hogan vs sting, roode vs the champion of the week and daniels vs aj cause they have been feuding with each other since 2002.
Hardy vs Aries - BFG series, since june 14
Aces and Eights payoff - since slammiversary
Joey Ryan - second OFN
Roode vs Storm - more than one year in the making
Joe and Magnus have been teasing a match since their tag team days.
The reason why we don't get fresh ideas and promotions rising in American Pro Wrestling is because the majority of the community is happy with the same old shit and will reject any chance of change. There is a risk in doing new things, 9 times out of 10, it leads to 50+ pages of bitching and moaning. While business gets turned into a dictatorship and more and more out of touch. Support the indies, support New Pro Wrestling.
