Re: Aces & Eights Discussion Thread
I said Spirit Squad because they were McMahons personal cheerleaders and attack squad. They did random attacks on HBK and HHH, before DX came back.
I'll admit I can't say, or shouldn't speak on the Shield since I don't watch Raw on the regular. But I can say that I know their purpose. They want people to respect the championships like they used to. They are tired of Punk getting no respect just cause you don't like him. And on the other side of the coin, they are tired of popularity contest deciding who gets title shots. They've put Ryback through multiple tables, that's the second biggest babyface on Raw.
Aces and Eights have beaten masses of people up, but as an audience we still have a lot of necessary questions that NEED answers. I don't need them to blow blow their wad but in 6.5 months, all we have to show is Devon, DOC, they can be paid, they have numbers and that's all. The scale isn't balanced as far as good storytelling goes. Suspense goes so far until you end up with the show Lost where half the audience quit several seasons before the show got to the point.
I WANNA WORK AT THIS GYM!
