Booking has been excellent on 205 Live so far

-They are slowly but surely building characters and nothing ever feels "too much".

-The storyline with Noam and Cedric makes the first one look like a giant prick and has you feel for Cedric. Great writing.

-It gave Alicia Fox something to do and she's doing a great job in this love triangle.

-Neville. Nuff said.

-Jack Gallagher is one of the most entertaining gimmicks on the roster. He just needs to incorporate more of it during his matches and in his moveset.

-Wins/Losses make sense. When someone's win could help the ongoing storyline, it happens, plain and simple. No one's killing someone else's momentums. No one ever looks like they're beeing buried (even for WF's standards)

-The Brian Kendrick is actually good again. I can't believe it but he got his game back. He was absolutely atrocious in TNA and was probably the worst wrestler they had for a while.

-Rich Swann is over as a champion and handling his feud with Neville very well.



Of course, nothing's perfect. Guys like Gulak or Dorado need to work on their "characters" if they ever get one ; the show still has that "C Brand" feeling ; TJ Perkins is not going to last forever if he only relies on a retro video game music and tron etc...
but I'd say they're doing fine for now and this could become better than NXT.

Have not watched a lot of the show. Only thing I know that has been gold has been Neville! Needs to win the title at the Royal Rumble.

I watched the first couple of episodes and found them pretty throwaway, this makes me want to give it another go.

I agree that 205 has been awesome so far. The show is making the strides it needs to in order to make it must-see tv.

Re: Booking has been excellent on 205 Live so far

Why is 50/50 booking, the champ losing non title matches and super short title reigns okay on 205 Live? Isn't this the stuff smarks consider terrible booking?

Shilling for Xia Li, Aliyah, Bianca Belair and Rhea Ripley
