Booking for BFG

Has anyone notice that for the past 3 years the booking for BFG has been done very lazily.
2017 was spoiled by the return of Alberto El Patron and Jeff Jarret's problems
2018 was in short of expectation in comparison to Slammiversay especially the
booking of Eli Drake and LAX vs OGz.
The same lazy booking has been done for this year's BFG as well.

Doesn't it undermines the event when it is considered to be the flagship event of the company. Funniest part is the road to Slammiversay has been booked very well in contrast with BFG.

I have noticed that slammy has been booked better and come off more important lol.

But i think they are still in transition. Once they start the next tapings that will debut on the new channel is when they are in full force new direction. Plus they lost a lot of talent recently.

We will see

Re: Booking for BFG

This year the booking is fine and even good in some regards. The matches is what I'm worried.

I agree with you in general, but LAX vs OGz was the feud of the year for IMPACT. It peaked at Bound for Glory.

In comparison to its Slammiversary match, the one in BFG was a classic until Konnan entered and abruptly finished the match.

Re: Booking for BFG

The ECW fossils drag the show down heavily.
Bryan Jericho and scumbag like this.

Re: Booking for BFG

I feel like the booking this year is better than 2017 and 2018.

I dont mind for a bit but these guys are fully on the roster so i agree,Cus its a step backwards doing what TNA did whenever a young guy would try to get over. But Swinger i feel has not been show cased for a long long long time so hes not really over used or exposed so i think hes fine and fitting.

Im sure it wont be for to long so all good,Just needed some help during the point of losing so many other wrestlers recently.

Swinger's big character suits what IMPACT have been going for since D'Amore & Callis came in. I quite like him, not great in the ring, but he's never going to be more than low level talent. Rhino I don't mind because he's just a great pro & can still go. Now RVD, Sabu, Shamrock & Dreamer...I can only hope will be gone (on screen for Tommy!) come January.

Re: Booking for BFG

I don't see anything wrong with Rhino, RVD, Shamrock and Swinger. The others don't look like they can still go, however.

You have to have star power and name recognition on your shows, like it or not.
