Re: Aces & Eights Discussion Thread

If Bully Ray,Joseph Park(aka Abyss),or Roode is with them then its no surprise cause I would see something like that happening...but if someone like Samoa Joe is with them then Id be surprised.

Re: Aces & Eights Discussion Thread

I still think one of the people helping fight them will end up turning on TNA, I just haven't figured out who yet.

I think Bully Ray is too obvious.

It needs to be somebody that will shock the fans.

Re: Aces & Eights Discussion Thread

For the most part, it doesn't matter who's really in the group. It's all about how the group, and eventually the individual members, get booked. Someone like a Brisco or Gallows won't carry much name value, but if they're booked as legit, tough, bad-asses then that's how they'll get over.

With Nexus we all "knew" the members, but no one would have really gotten over, especially with the casual fans, if the one-night destruction of the RAW set did not happen. That moment got them over as legit bad-asses that will do anything. Nexus then failed, because of the booking.

Re: Aces & Eights Discussion Thread

I'm sticking with James Storm as the leader. The beatdown was just a red herring.

His character fits a biker game the best, and being the leader of a stable could cement his character as a main eventer.

I'd like to Storm and Aces & 8's portrayed as tweeners with a "with us or against us" mentality, rather than outright heels

Yes, although I don't mind Jeff Jarrett being a part of this group as it would make sense storyline wise, but he should NOT be the leader.

I would like it if the leader of Aces and Eights was someone from the TNA roster - either Roode, Storm or perhaps even Kurt Angle.

The rest of the group should be made of young guys and the best free agents around. Batista anyone?

With the possibility that Bully Ray/Joseph Park(even Roode) or someone else on the roster is with them?
My ideal group would be Compton, Gallows, Bradley, Brisco, Gunner, (O'doyle (we know he's in) and Maybe knox with Joe as the leader

Re: Aces & Eights Discussion Thread

Aces and Eights

Ace of Spades, the president of the club and the most important figure.

Aces - top rank members of the organization (4, ace of spades included)
Job - delegate and make sure eights do their job

Eights - New members (4)
Job - protect the aces



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

If Jarrett or somebody already with TNA turns out to be the leader, I think TNA should go after a big name free agent. The person doesn't have to be with Aces and 8s, just a name that keeps people interested in TNA after BFG.

I think the Aces and 8s will be a long reveal and we'll see the group evolve more, so with the long pay off(and what might be a disappointing one for some) I would reward the crowd a different way and that's by debuting John Morrison in front of 5k fans at Bound For Glory in Phoenix, Arizona! (Bah Gawd, THAT'S JOHN MORISSEY!)

Could you imagine Morrison (or w/e his name would be) debuting at BFG and going right at it with AJ Styles? That is definitely something that would get/keep people interested. It also is a way to get BFG over and show the fans that TNA doesn't fuck around and BFG's are sure to excite.

Other then Morrison, there really is no big name out there. Batista is in MMA. Goldberg is difficult.
If not Morrison, then the Briscoes would be a good prize in the long run. But other then that, there just isn't much out there.

I say TNA makes a legitimate run at Morrison for BFG.

Morrison would be freaking awsome in tna. He still got it, he really have the look(im straight but still i think he is one handsome man).

You made me jizz of thinking about Batista in TNA. Since Robbie T is awful in the ring they could really use someone big ass guy like Batista(well he isnt big enough now, but I would guess with his recent mma training he is one mean and intense mofo).
