Add in Ryan/Snow being allowed to slowly build to that all out point when Snow snaps, begs to get Ryan signed, all so he can get the chance to beat the crap out of him in the ring.

The Knockout title scene is being opened up while bringing back EY in the same segment.

You had Kaz and Daniels being pushed into at least one more confrontation for Styles to get retribution for the Claire deal.

You don't have to overload a show with dozen's of seperate stories that are fully shown every week. You don't have to blow through a feud in weeks. You don't have to beat the audience over the head and go "here's the story!". Seriously, just becasue a certain company out there forgot how to book properly does not mean that is how it's actually done. Thank whatever the hell is out there for TNA returning to the simple, long term booking that made wrestling great. It's been missing for far too long.
This has nothing to do with my point

Stop trying to compare everything between the two. Jesus Christ. Maybe it's a complex?

"Hey, is Christopher Daniels wearing a new shirt?"
"YOU JUST THINK THE SHIRT SUCKS BECAUSE JOHN CENA WEARS ORANGE, SO SORRY IT'S NOT BRIGHT COLORED AND FOR CHILDREN IN THE SHITTY WWE TV-PG ERA!!"


This is not some competition, no matter how badly you want it to be. You don't have to overhype TNA shows, or underplay WWE shows, or ignore every other show. Just call a spade a spade & stop being so goddamn biased all the fucking time. If you think WWE sucks & you never watch it, great, stop talking about it. If you think TNA is awesome & owns, great, continue to watch it & praise it. But stop casting stones for NO REASON.
Except we are talking about booking and three biggest examples you have out there are TNA, WWE, and RoH... And considering that the WWE is the most notable of the three and their booking style is what most people would be used to by now... it's actually relevant. But then you just wanted the chance to rant mindlessly so I expect you to ignore this anyway. When we get into discussions about booking and what works/what doesn't, talking about more than one company is actually okay.

Uh... you asked what was set up besides the BFG series and I gave you a few examples of story points that happened just this past episode. That had everything to do with what you asked...

Re-read what I wrote specifically.

TNA themselves heavily implied Hogan would show up and an unmasking. Zero clue on what you wrote has anything to do with anything.

I'm really liking the TNA product right now and thought it was another good show...really upped their game over the last 12 months

As for booking, I used to follow WWE a lot but stopped about 5 years back as it bored me to death...everything seems to be a rehash but with different people. Look at it now and then but it's always the same " me bad, you good, we fight...end feud...repeat" which I guess works for a PG product...but I miss looking forward to Raw wondering what was gonna happen rather than being able to almost guarantee you that the two major heels would face the two major faces in a tag match. Seems like there's been a death of entertaining segments and too much emphasis on comedy and brand names...even Hulkamania wasn't as predictable as the Cena era.

TNA have got a good thing going at the moment...just hope they don't mess it up or lose any integral people to the competition. Eyre doing a very good job replacing Angle, Jarrett and others with really credible individuals and building them up slowly rather than just formulating angles

Zema Ion has always reminded me of someone and even though I didn't know who, I could never take him seriously because of it. I just realized who it was.



^If you don't know who this is, the character's name is Raj (short for Rajesh) and he plays this science nerd on the tv show The Big Bang Theory. Funny as hell! The character is normally questioned about his latent homosexual tendencies to even further the comparisons between him and Ion.

I think the pacing of storylines is variable at the moment (although I am much preferring the slower pace). The Roode/Storm feud and long championship reign was perfectly handled. And I think they're pacing the Aces and 8s storyline perfectly too (so far).

The AJ/Claire storyline needed to be aborted months ago though, and something needs to happen with the Joey Ryan storyline soon. It's fine for us fans who visit their respective Twitters and watch his YouTube channel, but for 99% of the audience he first appeared months ago and is just some guy who appears for 15 seconds once every four weeks.

Generally, I'm happy but the Joey Ryan story needs development.... and soon.
