a. It's good it's gone so long without them just throwing everything out there because then it would be "when will the aces and eights stable end, rather than the angle about them coming in. Maybe I should have said a year rather than half a year. Sounds better to me anyway. Honestly it didn't feel that long to me.. (Nexus on the other hand felt like it had gone on for decades after a couple weeks to me. It was soo incredibly horrible and stale that even punk couldn't make it the least bit interesting.)
Nexus were 50 times more over than the Aces and Eights. Nexus came in with a legit reason as to why they were there, they had a leader who could talk and it took a while for anyone to get the revenge on them. Sure it all fell apart after SummerSlam, but that is due to inept booking. The way they were presented initially was perfectly fine and gave the promotion a direction and created a group of fresh names on TV.
Don't speak as though you speak for their whole audience. You don't. You speak for you. You have no clue if people other than you give a shit about the storyline..
All those people reaching for the remote and the fact Bound For Glory did worse than its done since TNA got on Spike TV should tell you all you need to know on that front. The TV audience aren't interested. And anyone who isn't a complete idiot would tell you kidnapping Joseph Park and building up the biggest show of the year where you unmask Devon Dudley is a retarded way of building to a climax.
Looking through just this thread I can see quite a few that do.. if the Bischoff math is right you can add on 10 people that watch that think like them that don't get on the internet to talk about it.
Bischoff is an idiot though. The only Bischoff maths I enjoy is adding up how much money WCW lost in the first quarter of 1999 on his watch. And nobody new is watching TNA. Ratings are down since June.
c. So you're just butthurt about who is in the group?
No. Im not butthurt at all. I just find it hilarious that people wonder why a biker gang storyline featuring WWE rejects and Garrett Bischoff is doing so poorly.
d. The players we know of thus far aren't bad. As I was reminded about 15 pages back in this thread, they had d-lo under a mask in place of Devon for weeks, what is there to make you think that some of the people under the masks right now won't be the people under them when the masks come off?
Errrr ... no they didn't. D'Lo has played the role of the VP since day one and continues to do so. Where did you get that from? Fuck even you are confused and you say you like this angle.
The "RIGHT NOW generation" thing is perfectly applicable.. I hope it goes on for another year and a half just to troll the people that want it over with right now.
If this storyline goes on another year, TNA's buyrates and ratings will likely be worse than they currently are. Which takes some doing. If this goes on another year, I will laugh my fucking ass off.
