It is getting boring now. They did not even reveal Garret and Brisco as A&8's members. The story progression is too slow for my liking and the random attacks have come to the point that I simply skip them. Their interference in the Final Resolution main event was stupid and made no sense to me. Roode pays them to help him win the title, they fail to do so and then they attack Hardy for no reason and when Roode complains, they attack him too.. okay.. whatever.
My only hope is that TNA doesnt get lazy and start booking A&8's as an answer to all storylines, there could have been other ways to let Hardy retain while not killing Roode's credibility.
1- We do not know if Garrett is a member. We could even say the same about Wes, they could sub in Compton and swerve if they really wanted too, though I doubt that.
As for Garrett, he stopped DOC from nailing Angle with the hammer which questions whether he is just a warm body under a mask right now or not ? If he is not I'd expect him to be in some hot water with the Aces as they can easily point to that as the reason for losing the match. I think some of these subtle things they do or have done, are viewed by TNA as storyline progression, but they come off as so subtle that fans are taking notice.
2- RE : Roode's attack, they stated on twitter "Money talks, bullshit walks". And it makes sense...they are a supposed to be an outlaw motorcycle club (aka HEELS), thus taking Roode's money but not being his insurance policy works. It's a case of heels "out heeling" the heel.
Hardy is the Champion thus is always a target. Aries also was targeted when he was Champion. There is more here we have yet to learn and the dots will eventually be connected.
there just like the old biker gang wwe had D.O.A, i dont see how they could suprise ppl with the leader coz if its hogan,bischof,jeff jerret, stink, bully, roode, storm, angle or any1 else it would just suck bigtime, they would need to get some1 new and whos going to be an instant star or else it just fails
This is a problem with some fans. They build up their own expectations and if creative does not deliver to the built up expectations of the fans then they feel let down. TNA has never really made it feel like this story is leading to a new debut be it a an up and comer or someone who has already been built into a star.
I expect that one of Bully/Abyss-JP/Aries/Storm is a major player in this group. I don't like the possibility of JJ/Bischoff/Angle and hope they stay clear of that route because of the been there done that kinda feel it will leave. But if they want an already established TNA star to be a major player then one cannot say it fails/sucks just because it does not meet your expectations...heck I even realize if they do go the route I'd rather they not, I'll have to reserve judgement until it plays out some and we get answers to the many questions the story has created.
