But the Royal Rumble is a simple concept. Winner gets a title shot at Mania by winning a battle royal. You think the average viewer knows who in the lead or keeping up with the scoring system, probably not.
The BFG-series has 4 rules, that´s pretty simple.
Since TNA puts the current standing of the scoreboards on screen several times during each show, for the duration of the series, the "average viewer" would have to be a vomplete idiot if (s)he can´t keep updated on the series.
Theres really only two major problems with the current structure and execution of the series. They need to book it properly.
And they need to keep other storylines on TV.
The latter being the biggest problem, it just doesn´t work when you give the audience nothing but BFGS matches/segments for three months.
But if they could cut the BFGS matches/segments down to 2-3/night, and give other titles/divisions/feuds some TV time every week, there´s no reason it wouldn´t work, even running as long as it does.
The BFG-series is a nice, relatively unique concept for TNA, it should be kept around, but should not be given a majority of the TV time, every week, for three months.
