Stretching out the Joey/B-Boy feud is good long-term storytelling, but denying fans an advertised title match *wasn't*. That was just sloppy, bad booking. Same thing with Bosh -- making him struggle to win the belt could be good storytelling, but there's no justification, short-term or long-term, for jobbing him out and sending him back into the tag division, as a heel, no less. That's not telling a story over time; that's changing stories in midstream.
I didn't agree with anything you said here, with the exception of "Stretching out the Joey/B-Boy feud is good long-term storytelling" part. So they did deny the fans the advertised match, but it wasn't sloppy or bad booking. With this Joey got out of having to put his title on the line, now he is ducking B-Boy, IMO it's great booking. I wasn't all that excited about B-Boy/Ryan when B-Boy became the number one contender, but now I am actually excited to see where they go from here.
