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.
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.

You're all so WONDERFUL. Why did they ever have to remove you from the continuity? You'd have made for MARVELOUS stories. You WILL make marvelous stories. And the FIRST story of the new world will be a story of REVENGE! -- The Psycho Pirate, Animal Man 23, May 1990.
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.

I'm pretty sure Bischoff was driving the hummer. Or..it 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.

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.
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 somehow ended up watching the whole Survivor Series debut. What a great way to introduce a character. I remember at the time thinking we've never seen a wrestler like this before. Piper? More like Roddy Hyper. Crazy announcing.
