I'm talking about the angles that had a nice buildup, went on for a long time, or showed a lot of promise...BUT NEVER GOT RESOLVED!The angle was either scrapped or there was no big blowoff.

The "Brood" angle with the vampire satanic cult of Gangrel, Edge and Christian was never explained and ended up with Edge and Christian breaking off into a tag team and the hardy boyz(?!) joining up with Gangrel. Anyone remember this?

The stable of Angle, Big Show and Benoit i think that was lead by Shane McMahon. They dominated an episode of Raw and were never seen again.

The point of this post is to see if any of you can fill me in on if these angles were ever resolved, or meant to be resolved.

I know WCW was abundant in these types of angles but I never really watched it after being displeased so many times. So if you have any other examples, go ahead and reply with them.

How about the tease last week on SD! of Edge, Rey and Cena trashing the Unamericans, and the crowing about how they were the "future of SD!" I thought I saw a feud coming, but that one went nowhere fast. Oh, well.

Moo hoo ha ha.

The Angle-Steph-HHH love triangle was a story arc which lasted for almost a year but which faded to black before a real blowoff. While there was a resolution of sorts it was more of a whimper a la TS Elliot than a bang.

This was incredibly disappointing, to me at least, as this was one of the best put together angles in recent memory.

There is only one angle in wrestling history that is the King of Kings in this category: The infamous "Who was driving the Hummer?" from WCW.

What was in Baby Doll's envelope?

Who lifted the briefcase?

And who exactly was DDP's benefactor?

I do believe that it was revealed that the Big Boss Man was the lifter of the briefcase.

And aren't most of you just pissed that Stephanie chose HHH over Angle? Steph made her choice, to save her marriage, and that was it. We got the blowoff match at Unforgiven, and all the characters moved on (in fact, Angle moved onto greater things as he won the WWE title the very next month). I'm sorry that Steph didn't turn on HHH too, but don't say the story didn't end. It just ended in a way that most of us didn't want.

She gave birth to pictures of Sean Stasiak. Had to be painful.

DDP's Benefactor: Resolved
He later claimed it was Kimberly.

The ORIGINAL Brood Angle of Edge -v- Gangrel/Christian was never resolved, however.

I'm pretty sure Bischoff was driving the hummer. could've been...VINCE. "It was me, Austin, it was me ALL ALONG!" Er... Anyhoo, I've always wondered why they never resolved the nWo silver&black...because they were cool.

I've never even heard of Baby Doll's envelope. What is that?

Also, What happened to Ric Flair being in the nWo. How soon did that end?

You know what never went anywhere? Brian Pillman's XXX Files. Whatever happened with that?

The Baby Doll Pictures, NWA late 1987 (?):

Baby Doll was Larry Zybysko's manager. Dusty was the U.S. champ. Baby Doll claimed to have photos showing Dusty "doing something he shouldn't" (INSERT JOKE HERE) and as blackmail wanted a title shot for Larry as payment for not making the photos public.

Many weeks go by, many promos are cut by all concerned parties. Then lo and behold, one day Baby Doll just disappears off TV, Larry starts hanging out with Gary Hart, and not another word is spoken about The Photos.

Bischoff was driving a Hummer during the first Bischoff-Russo Era Nitro in April of 2000.

The stable of Angle, Big Show and Benoit i think that was lead by Shane McMahon. They dominated an episode of Raw and were never seen again.

The Show got injured (or was that when he was sent down?) and off TV..that was around the time Shane was Benoit`s manager, right? I think they just simplified it to that.

La Parka having his promos dubbed for him was an awesome gimmick that never was resolved...that is until Vince stole and gave it to Kaienti. INDEED.

The Union angle went nowhere even with big stars like Mankind, Big show, Ken Shamrock and I think there was one other guy. Although I did not see any of the Union in Matches, I don't think they did anything memorable.

I might as well see if anyone else is looking forward to the ROH show tonight, or if they are actually going. I know I'll be there in the CZW section of the bleachers, watching two promotions I like run an angle that has benefited both companies.
