Sure...

Ratings mean dick to me. I merely want the reveal to be worthwhile. That's it.

Aces and 8's is called The Dead Man's Hand because it is the hand 'Wild Bill' Hickok had when he was shot through the head.

Re: Aces & Eights Discussion Thread

Of course it has to. If the reveal is a stinker then all of this was for nothing. It can't bomb. That would be a blow for the company right now.

Nothing is guaranteed.

If the reveal happens on PPV it may or may not have a positive effect on the Impact follow up...also if they go back to taping, spoilers could potentially have a negative effect on a reveal and or follow up even if the reveal is on PPV. If the reveal happens on Impact they would need to hype it at least a week out, as if it comes out of nowhere there will be no pop on the rating.

I think the reveal should happen on PPV despite the huge dropoff in viewership. PPV's should be a big deal where big payoffs happen.

Re: Aces & Eights Discussion Thread

But, even then the hype for a reveal would be fairly lackluster too. Wouldn't it be more impactful if it was a surprise? I think so. PPV is the ideal moment. Let fans have something to talk about at the "water cooler" the next day, type deal. It's been a problem for TNA the last 4 years or so. Their PPVs never have any major hooks. They should.

Re: Aces & Eights Discussion Thread

Batista or Jericho are my picks to be the leader. There's no way in my mind that Bishoff or Jarrett will be the leader after all this build up.

Exactly. A bad reveal would be crippling for the company. There is way too much invested in this right now.

It should be revealed on PPV. Just the person revealed, no explanation given until the next Impact. thats a way to bring in ratings IMO.

Re: Aces & Eights Discussion Thread

A 1.2 rating? Groundbreaking.


Visualizing the realism of life and actuality
Fuck who's the baddest a person's status depends on salary
And my mentality is, money orientated
I'm destined to live the dream for all my peeps who never made it

Batista & Jericho? Way too expensive.

I still think they need to go with Raven.
1. Cheap.
2. Mainstream fans know him.
3. Internet fans like him overall.
4. Got some history with TNA/easy to write a story for him in this case.
5. Can deliver on the mic.
6. Not as predictable as Jarrett/EB.
