This. But many believe once they can pick you out from under a mask that said guy is going to be revealed. There certainly is a chance he is a prospect, but it is not written in stone.

I truly hope he is just being a placeholder as I just don't see him fitting in with this group, he is a square peg trying to fit into a round hole IMO.

I think Goldberg, Batista and the ghost of Chris Benoit are more likely to be revealed as the three leaders of Aces & Eights than the Undertaker is...in other words, extremely unlikely.

Not a WWE alumni = Not impressive.

Devon and Doc are good picks, but if it ends with Bischoff or Jarrett, I won't be impressed.

I easily take jarrett over devon and signing wrestlers for the sake of being ex-WWE is stupid.



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

Its a long shot but honestly Edge is the only one I can see coming to TNA because he has done everything with the WWE and making money without wrestling isnt a bad idea and even that has only 1% chance of happening. Batista is not happening so guys dont get your hopes up. Goldberg would have been a possibility if his head wasnt so deep in his ass, the guy genuinely believes he is a mega star and TNA is too small for him.

I am not/have not expecting/expected any big names and donot plan to. The only thing I want for this storyline is.. do something interesting. Its slowly getting boring by each week.

Yup, bringing in a guy who is a neck injury away from paralysis sounds like a game changer.

Wanted:

A tall well built woman with good
reputation, who can cook frogs
legs, who appreciates a good fuc-
schia garden, classical music and tal-
king without getting too serious.
But please read only lines 1, 3 and 5.

Re: Aces & Eights Discussion Thread

All this talk about potentially available folks who have a bit of fame from their WWE days; why are they necessary for this to work? They have no connection to TNA, no logical reason to join an invading biker gang (which seems to have lost its logical reason for existing, so perhaps that's not an issue...) and, importantly, haven't to my knowledge shown any interest in signing with TNA as wrestling talent or otherwise.

I read people saying that a 'big name' is needed as a payoff to such a lengthy and show-consuming storyline. Me, I'd rather have a sensible, well-scripted reason behind all this, more forward motion to the story and an interesting conclusion that actually changes something for the show going forward. All that trumps seeing a former wrestler speak a few times in the ring or another one show up with zero motivation because Impact appearances were bundled into his Bellator contract.

As far as who is supposed to be under those masks goes, well, I was originally under the impression that Aces&8s was made up of wrestlers who felt unappreciated, rejected or overlooked by TNA. Nobody noticed them before – now they do. Pretty simple, and that would tend to exclude big names, unless they were ones with past bad experience with the company. I would much prefer lesser known guys who could be written into that kind of storyline than some bizarre twist added to accommodate Edge (who would be doing what exactly?), for example.

I understand why folks want a recognized star from a few years ago to show up again. Names draw interest, and it's nice to see people you've missed. Bringing in someone from outside TNA has a “oh, look who they got!” feel to it, like they've accomplished something with the story. I'd just be happy (happier, actually) without that, based in part on how bringing in name talent hasn't always worked out as hoped in the past. Why not concentrate on improving based on who and what they already have?
