Re: Aces & Eights Discussion Thread

Devon isn't even the Vice-President, nevermind the leader.

#1 - Devon had a "Prospect" patch on the front of his jacket.
#2 - Aces and 8s twitter right after the match had a tweet saying "Good job Prospect."


Anyways, Bischoff is still my guess as leader. We only saw the leader once and it was played by Eazy E, and he said something like "Brotherhood... what do you know about brotherhood and sticking up for your brothers." Obviously referring to Hogan's face turn at BFG '11. Either Bischoff or Jarrett.

I like Devon as a normal member, no issue with that.

Does this mean that the Bully Ray gimmick will be dropped ?

Re: Aces & Eights Discussion Thread

After the shitstorm I realized devon is a low member used to shock ray and hogan.
It's a way of A&8's saying: "you will never guess what's next"

The reason why we don't get fresh ideas and promotions rising in American Pro Wrestling is because the majority of the community is happy with the same old shit and will reject any chance of change. There is a risk in doing new things, 9 times out of 10, it leads to 50+ pages of bitching and moaning. While business gets turned into a dictatorship and more and more out of touch. Support the indies, support New Pro Wrestling.

Re: Aces & Eights Discussion Thread

Can't believe the disrespect Devon's gotten here. I think he's charismatic to be the leader of the group.

Re: Aces & Eights Discussion Thread

I am fine with Devon being in it. I am not sure I can go along with him being the supreme leader of the gang though.

TNA has my attention. I'll say that. Let's see if they go anywhere good with it.

So far, this is better and more intriguing than the Bischoff or Jarrett reveal we were and to an extent still are expecting.

Re: Aces & Eights Discussion Thread

Jarrett as to a be a member, if not the leader of Aces and Eights. It just makes to much sense. The way I see it, Aces and Eights will consist of wrestlers who got fired from TNA or wrestlers that never got a call from TNA and believe that they deserve a spot on the show.

D'lo Brown:Possibly mad that he wasn't ask to be one of the judges on gutcheck.
Devon:Possibly mad that TNA management didn't offer him a decent contract even if he was TV Champion. He might be also mad because he felt he never received the spotlight he deserved.

Jarrett as a ton of reasons to be mad: He wasn't the first inductee in the hall of fame and got fired from the company he founded.

But you know what...I don't think Jarrett should be the leader. In my opinion, the leader shouldn't be a huge name in the wrestling business but instead someone that TNA believe could eventually become a main-eventer. With this being said, I think it should be this man:

Shelley as so much potential in my opinion and this Aces and Eights storyline could really built him as a main-eventer. I would love it if he was the mastermind behind aces and eights.

We all said Devon needed to reinvent himself well maybe this is the reinvention he needed like Bully was for Ray.

Re: Aces & Eights Discussion Thread

I saw Jarrett is the boss. The Aces and Eights were played by RKK guys and Jarrett runs that. With Devon as a memeber, I think it A&8s will be RKK and disgruntled TNA guys that are staging TNA's own version of The Invasion
