When wrestling went to a model where there are 12 PPVs and 2 big weekly shows each week, one of the byproduct of this is that inevitably, the wrestler (especially the main eventers) run out of other wrestlers to feud against. You no longer have have a wrestler feud for at least 6 months before going on to other opponents and never crossing each other's path. As such, there are times where a wrestler finds themselves feuding with another wrestler who they have feuded with before. The problem is that, if the same wrestlers feud with each other all the time, things become stale.

My question is how long should time pass before a feud is revisited?

Should they be feuding with each other within months of completing a previous feud with each other?
Examples:
-Austin/Undertaker: late 1998-mid 1999 where they had matches in August 1998, December 1998, May 1999, and July 1999.
-Jericho/Benoit: April-May 2000, August 2000, January 2001.
-Triple H/Kurt Angle: August-September 2000, January 2001

Should they feud with each other in and around the 12 months mark since their last feud? Examples:
-Rock/Triple H: July-August 1998, May-July 1999, March-June 2000.
-HBK/Triple H: July-December 2002, December 2003-June 2004

Should they feud with each other in and around the 2 years mark since their last feud? Example:
-Austin/Rock: 1999, 2001, and 2003

Should they feud with each other only after a significant amount of time had passed their last feud?
Examples:
-HBK/Jericho: December 2002-April 2003, April-October 2008
-Undertaker/HBK: August-October 1997, February-March 2009

Should they feud as needed? As in they don't have an opponent for wrestler x so they'll stick wrestler y in there even though they just feuded 3 months before.
Example:
Can't think of any.

Or should they only feud with each other once, go on to other opponents, and never feud with each other again?
