Re: Aces & Eights Discussion Thread

Here are a few things I would like to come out of this angle when they reveal it.

1. I am not too picky on who the leader and co-conspiritors will be. But please don't let it be anyone who has already been beaten down by Aces & 8s. Don't try to justify a previous beatdown as a swerve or getting jumped in a gang.

2. I am fine if 90% of Aces & 8s are indy guys or former enhancement talent that the mainstream wrestling public barely knows. But if you are going to have a familar name revealed, please let them be one of the top 5-6 guys. Someone suggested that it was John Morrison fighting with Hogan backstage last week. He was the #1 contender for the WWE title less than 2 years ago. WWE invested a DVD devoted to him. Please make him one of the top guys. Same with Chris Masters if he is involved.

3. Let all the questions be answered on the day of the reveal. If they have to dedicate a whole episode to Impact filled with previously shown footage to explain (err...cover up the holes in logic) like they did with Immortal, then this angle is a waste

Sneaky feeling EY has some association, especially with ODB 'opening doors' ...

Ehh isn't he like 6'5 ?



As for D'Lo, perhaps he is a stand in for someone from AAA. Could turn out to be Jarrett and a mix of guys from the US Indies and AAA.

Re: Aces & Eights Discussion Thread

John Morrison would be a huge signing for TNA and it'd be at a great time. If you pay to see Bound For Glory and John Morrison debuts (with the type of matches we could see from him with the likes of TNA guys) then your getting your moneys worth(considering everything else going on in TNA.)

Morrison maintains that he's going back to WWE though and is just taking some time off.

So if he isn't able to be signed and Jeff Jarrett turns out to be the leader, I think they need to add some names other then just Brisco, Gallows, Knox.

What I would of liked to have seen was if Jarrett was the leader, Morrison debuted not with Aces And 8s. If Jarrett is revealed(or Abyss or someone already on the roster,) everyone sees it coming, but Morrison's appearance makes up for that.

Anyway, I just hope the pay off is good for the majority of the audience(and once that happens a new saga begins) and TNA can maintain this momentum, as I think it will really help with brand loyalty.

I'll disagree. Morrison does nothing for me. Above average wrestler, yes but he is not a star nor does he possess star power. He was a mid card wrestler who shouldn't be more than a mid card wrestler IMO. Just never got the fascination some have with JoMo, or why some thought he would be a HBK-esque star.

Re: Aces & Eights Discussion Thread

Jomo isn't a bigger star than angle or hardy or even AJ Styles.
If he ends up in TNA, I want the morrison crap to go away and see how he does with a new character/look.



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

What I don't understand about the storyline is that on Impact two weeks ago, Hogan and Sting and others were taking out Aces and 8's members left and right and unmasking a few, but during the big brawl when the TNA wrestlers were getting the best of the main members of the gang they didn't try to unmask anyone.

Except his mic skills are average at best. The president of the Aces and 8's needs the ability to cut strong promos.

Yeah, Aries tried unmasking the guy he was fighting but got sneak attacked.
