Loved it for what it was. Hard pressed for me to really think all of it was scripted (too naive?). That's sometimes the route you need to take to makes things better. Make it more legit. Always seems to add that little bit more. The kayfabe fantasy is always enough to sell us as fans, sure. Yet I know a lot would probably agree with me that throwing in some honest elements in the mix is always a recipe for a better program.
I think it begs the question is Austin Aries actually turning heel or was that a set up for a Hardy heel turn Sunday (be it with or without the Aces and 8's) ? Is Aries actually the face with a legitimate grievance against company brass ?
