See if this was its own pay-per-view, it wouldn't be a problem. Bound For Glory is a once a year pay-per-view, wouldn't you rather some intense storyline build up over the year rather than constantly deciding the winner via tournament?

And I know what you're going to say, well hey they can still do that and then that guy can win the tournament, right?

Yeah.. that's cool and all.. but if we know 3 months in advance when the series starts of who's going to win it, it renders those entire 3 months and 12 superstars useless.

You can always have multiple possible winners and multiple contenders for the title to actually carry it into BFG. You don't need to ditch a tournament to create storylines with feeling in them. Hell, a tournament can be used to help build that. You can build feuds around that tournament, have simmering tensions between multiple competitors and give people a reason to think a number of contenders have a personal issue with the champion.

Bound For Glory is a once a year PPV, the tournament is a once a year tournament. I still see absolutely no problem with it. If it's because of the lack of feeling in this year's event, then that's down to poor booking, not poor booking because of a tournament.

It's a once a year tournament, but it lasts about 3 months. Wrestling moves fast, so having this tournament every 9 months basically, can get stale... especially since it is so poorly executed.

Nine months is a long time between tournaments, even in a wrestling setting. I think the problem is that TNA booked it awfully this year, and that's why there's questions about it.

Sorry BkB I seemed to have made a mistake in my post. I meant to say it's the biggest ppv of the year instead of once a year, idk how I even mixed that up or how once a year was even a relevant statement.

What do you think would be the negative of having it once every 2 years?

Does ayone know if all 12 wrestlers in this year's BFG series had the same number of matches?
