Yeah, I can see your point. Things did slow down a bit and they have had to startech things a while and will continue to for another 6 weeks. We complain about too many PPVS for WWE (or atleast used to), but not enough PPVs for a weekly 2 hour show is rough sometimes too.
They haven't really done anything with it since the TV right after Full Gear. The promos that have been cut really haven't pushed anything forward and MJF naming his stipulations only for Cody to push back his response another week isn't helping the angle. There's also the issue that Cody will do a run in on the Dark Order stupidity but on that same episode when MJF is talking...Cody doesn't come out and interrupt? He's got nothing to say to MJF's face? I'm supposed to believe this is some super personal angle when there's been one instance of physicality since the turn happened and a bunch of promos that actually aren't pushing the only hot angle the company had forward as much as they should be?
But I guess when you have almost four months between PPVs you've gotta stretch things out as best you can but it kinda exposes how bad their creative is as a whole that this thing feels as dead as it does. I'm not sure what happened but right after Full Gear the momentum was basically gone. It's a shame because I really enjoyed all the TV going into the PPV.
Some good points for sure. I feel like part of the problem is that they (and most other wrestling companies) are only building toward their next big event, rather than allowing some storylines to play out to completion on weekly TV.
