Re: Aces & Eights Discussion Thread

I hate to say it, but I think it'll be Bischoff and/or Jarrett. The NWO had almost the same gimmick. The dude even rode out on a harley.

I REALLY hope that's not the case, because it's basically just immortal again except someone's been watching Sons Of Anarchy.

I just don't see how the reveal would be worth anything with guys like Gallows and Brisco (Even though they're great wrestlers, and young talents) they're just not "stars"

Re: Aces & Eights Discussion Thread

I think this is a pretty good storyline, Im just worried that the pay off will be anti-climatic. If it ends up being a bunch of no name jobbers, its just going to have zero impact. There needs to be a couple guys that make it pop....

Maybe Scott Steiner?

Re: Aces & Eights Discussion Thread

I can't believe that we are in 2012 and people are still asking for Scott Steiner.

I don't understand why poeple keep harping on about the fact that A&8s might be a bunch of no-name wrestlers and ex-WWE jobbers. It doesn't make a difference who is under those masks. That was never the point. As A&8s said themselves, "Before we put on the masks we were nobodies". This should tell people that it wasn't about using big name stars when you can just debut them anytime you like.

This was about a group of wrestlers who feel like they haven't been given a fair chance to show the world their talents. They feel that they haven't been given the opportunities they feel they deserve and now they are there to take it whether people like it or not.

At this moment, the leader is an after-thought. With the right explanation the leader could be anybody, but I feel the point of this angle was to create new stars. When they finally unmask, people will take them seriously as they have already proved that they can hang with the best.

Re: Aces & Eights Discussion Thread

^^^Unless by "hang with the best" you mean got run the fuck outta the Impact Zone as soon as there's anyhing approaching even numbers then no, they haven't proved they can hang.

You also say that who is under the mask is not the point... Maybe not from a writer's point of view, but if you think that's the case from a viewer perspective then you are in utter denial. Besides, it's the eventual star recognition of a 'reveal' in such an angle which gives such a faction it's credibility, not their endless run-ins beating guys down 4,5,6 on 1.

Q. What's the NWO without the name value of Ex-WWE main eventers?

A. A jobber invasion.



Said all along, I think this is about Bischoff's revenge and if all randoms beneath the masks, I don't think any of the A&8s guys will get over (after the initial fan dissapointment), at least until such time that any of them turns on Bisch.

Of course not, I used my time machine to confirm this.
All they need is 2 big names... put bully ray (president) + a heel EY (VP) together and your stable is already over.



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

at the top of my list of suspects at the moment is Brocke Hogan. A woman has never been the leader of a faction before so it could be ineresting to see what happens. But if it is Brocke then I would like to see working with a big name star to bring down her farther and the person I think would fit perfectlly would be Edge. Though he can't wrestle anymore, he would still be a big draw and could easily do all the talking for aces and Eights. After this you would need one of the top guys in TNA to also be a part of the group to challenge for the title or bring in somebody like John Morrison to challenge. But at the end of the day this is just a dream and given TNA'S history it is more then likely that the end lineup will be Bishoff and Jarrett, leading a load of washed up wrestlers that have no buissness being in the ring.

Re: Aces & Eights Discussion Thread

I am a huge fan of this angle, however I can't help but feel like it is destined to be a disappointment. Everyone, including me, says that the angle needs a well-booked payoff to continue the momentum of the company. Honestly, I've been going through all kinds of scenarios in my head and no matter what, someone will be upset over it. If it is an inside job, it will piss some people off. If a new guy debuts it will piss people off. If it isn't a big enough star it will piss people off. I just hope if there is initial disappointment, TNA won't scrap the idea and maybe their writing can win more the neigh-sayers over. Just my thoughts on the subject.
