Roodes credibility is not killed at all. He lost against the world champion when he was distracted. If anything he was protected.

I think now, Aces & Eights will be the focus of the show again with the attacks on Hardy and Roode, the two top guys right now. Also Angle and Storm are still involved.

And it's obvious now that TNA will reveal members on Impact only, which makes sense since nobody watches their PPVs anyway.

So the next couple of Impacts will be very interesting, I think.

People are already getting bored with the angle between the premise, the inconsistent booking and the dragging out of reveals that end the end aren't worth it. And with them going to drag it out until Lockdown I don't see any of those getting better.

I'm bored with the angle. Only interest I have is waiting for Mike Knox to be unmasked + D.O.C. matches. That's not a product of the storyline. That's merely b/c I'm a fan of their's. I'm begging something to turn up the heat for this. After reading the spoilers...I think I have to wait till January.

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.

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.

I believe the leader might be AJ Styles. It will elevate his story line and take him out of the Styles/Daniels story line. If anyone needs a big push, heel turn, and has a lot of beef with the powers that be.... AJ makes perfect sense. No one would see it coming... Then AJ can become important again since he can't go for the title until late 2013.... I think all the losses might be a good set up for AJ to become a VP or Prez of Aces & Eights....

Thoughts?

That is possible. I still think the way they have been doing things with Storm.Is cus he will be the leader of Aces and is a better fit then AJ.

I can see AJ joining now-ish as a prospect. But as President/VP ? Not seeing any sound reasoning, but maybe I am missing something.

The president was already in place when the angle started, someone sent these prospects to do his bidding. The VP has been a somewhat of a regular on TV, and has a body type nothing like AJ. As far as no one seeing it coming...you did, and others have mentioned him before in this thread, so it's not straight out of left field, but I do believe AJ is not a popular suspect. Kaz and Daniels would be something no one sees coming (but I don't think they are involved).

But given the timing what storyline reason would AJ have had to bring the group into TNA ?

Also consider what AJ said last week on the TNA conference call :

Quote:
Styles said working as a heel while being honest to his faith all depends on what they have him do. He said when he was with Ric Flair, it was difficult to be Ric Flair without actually being Ric Flair, but when he was teaming with Christian as a heel, it was easier because he was a goofy heel.
Can he fit into the group and play a lead character (or any character in this group) given his faith ?

Actually AJ would be the perfect leader of the group. Who better than someone who is the face of TNA but feels so frustratingly put down and sent to the minors everytime a new star comes in.
