    Genius booking or luck?

    I was watching this past weeks episode of TNA and as bully ray was going through the history of the Aces & Eights and how we got to where we are today, it got me thinking if there really was a long term plan for booking in place.

    From months ago when Hogan turned Garrett away to be considered in a contenders match (this came not long after releasing Garretts 'mentor' Devon) further fueling Bischoff's hatred for Hogan. Or when Al Snow wasn't there on the night of Wes Brisco's gutcheck. D'lo stepped in as judge and was one of the 'yes' for Wes to get him onto the roster. Had they planned Bully to be leader all that time ago when he was trying to claim James Storm was the leader to throw people off? What about when Bully chased Devon away allowing Sting to be left alone and taken out with the hammer?
    I think there's more things i missed that i cant think from the top of my head.

    Just asking whether people think it really was genius long term booking from TNA creative or they just got lucky with all the coincidences and just played it off as part of a 'plan'.

    I was thinking the same when i watched it and i have to conclude it was genius booking as too much falls into place.

    Well done TNA bookers!

    i think it was a bit of both. a lot would have been planned but the little bits of luck that fell into place just became icing. what i loved was the fact that both wwe & tna never do these long storylines anymore because they seem to think we dont have the attention..

    Genius may be stretching it a bit much but I think it was very much good long term booking. TNA have really got their shit together over the last 18 months or so and it's really paying dividends now.

    A bit of both I guess...but when they were doubting James Storm I felt either Storm or Roode or Both are behind it..they played it nice...I loved the way, Bully has summed up the whole story in the past week's episode...that actually establishes a great story and now Bully has so many options to feud with...Hogan, Sting, Jeff hardy, James Storm, Kurt Angle, Samoan Joe, Roode, Aeries, Styles n even Morgan...

    Well yeah genius maybe going a bit far but its a massive step up on how most booking is done nowadays.
