Re: Aces & Eights Discussion Thread

I'm long sick of the sameness of it all convenient weekly beatdown followed by weekly riot but they really turned things around last night. That is how they should always handle these guys. There's been too much unintentional humour, which was fine at first but that eventually made them seem non-threatening and, coupled with the slow story development, flat out dull. Compare the latest hammer attack to the hilarious one during the kidnapping badass versus comedy. Both are fun, but last night's style was badly needed.

Re: Aces & Eights Discussion Thread

I think they need to hurry up and reveal what their purpose for being in Impact Wrestling exactly is. Whether it be to simply take over, or to simply seek revenge, having them there without purpose adds to any potential boring-ness.

Re: Aces & Eights Discussion Thread

When it's rushed, we're told that slower, longer builds are the way to go.

When it's slower and thought out, we're told that it's boring.

--

Revealing everybody at once, the motive, the leaders, etc. would be retarded. This is about introducing new talent to the roster and elevating each one. DOC has looked badass in the first two weeks of being unmasked; chokeslamming Parks and Sting through tables, destroying Sting with a hammer, etc. I am sure the same type of thing will happen with Brisco/Knox/Bradley/etc.

I have absolutely no problem with how TNA is going about this. We're getting character and feud progression every week. At BFG, it was Hogan one punching a bunch of them. Fast forward almost a month, and THE ICON STING is being decapitated in the ring. The group are getting stronger and gaining personalities.

This angle has given so much talent on the roster with something to work with. That allows for longer, more frequent segments with younger talent in other feuds; Joey Ryan, Zema Ion, etc.

Patience is indeed a virtue, and it's something that wrestling fans just don't have but like to believe they do.

Well done, TNA. Keep up the good work.

Re: Aces & Eights Discussion Thread

I agree, I love how the storyline is but I do agree it could have gone a little bit faster than what it has been. After last nights Impact I am really impressed with the way TNA handled Aces & Eights, it's brilliant that we still don't know who some of the members are except Wes Brisco (he is easy to distinguish because of his hair and eyes when you get a good close up of him).

Re: Aces & Eights Discussion Thread

How come you automatically know someone's name just because the mask has been removed? I mean, yes you once fought under one name but that can change. So how come sexy Christy Hemme knew Luke Gallows name as Doc? And why isn't the childish card group not furious because the world knows two names from the group?

Why are the group having matches when Hulk Hogan tells them to? I mean, I thought the card group called their own shots.

Why did Doc/Luke Gallows hit the table with the hammer instead of the hands of Sting? I mean, it should look like he was crushing the hands/fingers of Sting. But then why did he hit the table and not the palm or the fingers of Sting? The hammer did not even touch Sting's fingers or hands, so how can Sting have pain in his fingers or hands?

Is it really how REAL paramedics would treat a person who has been beat down with a hammer to let him self walk a while? Why didn't they have a streatcher with them?

His name was revealed during the opening promo.

Because they can beat the shit out of Sting, which is exactly what they did?

Because it's a wrestling show, not a snuff film. You need a doctor btw.

It's Eric Bischoff with his son. You think that they just left him out? Darth Vader: "NOOOOOOO!"

Re: Aces & Eights Discussion Thread

You guys are looking too much into it, of course in some points gallows hit the table. Just like every time HHH or any other guy goes for the knee drop it misses the head. It's wrestling people.



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.
