Isn't that what got us to this mess in the first place? Longer feud = more time for fans to get involved/more buildup to the big payoff.
I mean, look at the Rock/Jericho feud last fall. Taken more slowly, it would have been feud of the year material. As it happened, too quickly, we just look back and say 'man, that could have been better.'

Maybe I should have included "A galvanizing angle that the fed doesn't botch." By all accounts, the Invasion WAS a good angle, on paper. The execution just sucked the hard one.
And I wasn't trying to suggest they rush feuds to their payoffs. It just seems, at times, that exciting things aren't happening on a weekly basis. There are episodes of RAW or SmackDown! that you can miss. In suggesting they pick up the pace, I was just trying to suggest that we advance angles on every show.
Thanks for reading.
I believe I may be chasing an untamed ornithoid without cause.
