Well yeah. Some first time ever matches shouldn't be given away on Impact, would have much preferred they did Beer Money vs Hardy/Aries (someone mentioned this a few days ago) on the go home show.
They kinda screwed my idea when they decided to start having Aries teasing a potential heel turn on the horizon and having him in a more or less defined tweener role instead of just trying to keep Aries vs Hardy a face vs face matchup. While Aries was never a cookie cutter babyface, through the summer he was defintely playing more of a babyface character (though not a pure babyface) than his current jealous tweener teasing heel turn.
It's not as easy to create top babyface stars and Aries was on his way to becoming one. After Hogan puts Aries over like no other and they gave him the title, TNA should have put all their chips in on Aries. All he needed was the company backing him through booking and with a clean win against Hardy at BFG and they could likely cement that. There is still a chance they could cement this with an Aries win (clean) at BFG and Hardy raises Aries hand in the post match and subsequently puts Austin over in an Impact promo post BFG as the present and future of the company.
