Outlaw motorcycle gangs are some of the most violent gangs in the world and pose a significant threat to the law enforcement officers who encounter them.
Really ? not in TNA.
I see that many fans are more interested by the member's names than the gang itself. I love Aces & Eights and just hope that TNA will stop to make them look ridiculous and won't give up this angle too soon.
I am just afraid how badly the gang is portrayed. I perfectly know that TNA isn't reality (Devon being a sergeant at arms among other things). I just wish that TNA could show that Aces & Eights is a real threat. They are now just laughable.
TNA just needs to improve the gang's methods and actions. I mean that they are supposed to be a biker gang, but only act inside the Impact Zone and use the worst tactics since Pyrrus of Epirus.
They could ambush wrestlers outside the Impact Zone arena, when they are alone and vulnerable. Imagine them blocking a wrestler's car with their bikes, wrecking it with sledgehammers, before to pull the victim outside his vehicule leaving him bloodied on the asphalt after an nice beating.
Imagine them spreading havoc and fear in public places, stalking wrestlers like a wolf pack before to jump on them recording the beatings and posting them on youtube or on dedicated websites like www.AcesandEights.com
Of course they are villains, so they have to act stupidely ... Trying to lock the other wrestlers inside the locker rooms before to attack their prey on the ring doesn't seem to be reasonable for TNA creatives. Aces & Eights don't bring reinforcements (actors are cheap). They refuse to use any basic outnumbering surprise attacks or even to bring weapons.
I don't speak about guns or knives, but guys please take at least some improvised weapons with you (baseball bats, iron pipes, chains, handcuffs, kendo sticks, brass knuckles, etc.) before to assault an Impact Zone full of muscular and battle-seasoned wrestlers.
Please TNA don't give up and try to improve their dangerosity while searching for a good leader and a way to keep the angle steady (won't be easy).
