They are literally a jobber stable like people were saying from the beginning. If you want a stable to look menacing you just shouldn't have them lose every time.

I agree with you as well, and I hope that once Aces and Eights are squashed, these two form a potent tag team. Both guys are good workers for big men, just need a mouthpiece for them to talk.
A change in the structure and members/prospects would be a good way to getting the story back on track...but like Ceeder said, unlikely Devon is removed. But he could perhaps be shown alone on a phone talking to the president and be given instructions to "make the necessary changes".

Devon, Doc, Knox and some new prospects would be fine by me.

They could even allow them to show more ruthlessness by taking out D'Lo, Wes & Garrett and unmasking them personally and taking their cuts away. It could allow D'Lo to be "fired" by TNA management and Wes/Garrett to be "fired" as well (and sent to OVW for seasoning while leaving the door open for a return in time).

As far as Anderson goes, he too should be kicked to the curb and before they take out D'Lo and co. Why ? He never got in the ring to help them last night before or after Sting came out. It's a good way for Knox to get patched in by using that hammer to take out Ken who could then return in time for LD. Again....ruthlessness from the group is needed.

So I was right about this stable then. I remember everyone calling me a troll and a hater and fuck knows what else when I said your main stable cant be a group of ex-WWE castoffs who lose every week.

On the bright side Mike Knox reveal isn't going to be half as hilarious as the crowd reaction to D'Lo being unmasked. Anything less that people in the crowd vomiting with a lack enthusiasm and I'll be disappointed.

Your standards are massively low.

Define lose? Sure they haven't won many matches but at the same time they've won some battles though. How many brawls have they been in that had them come out on top. I count brawls as victories as well, and just destroying people.

Favorite Wrestlers Of All Time - The Undertaker, The Rock, Stone Cold, Chris Jericho, Kurt Angle and Edge

Re: Aces & Eights Discussion Thread

I don't get why almost everyone expected this stable to consist of Jericho, Batista, Goldberg plus 2-3 more guys, and they're now bitching about Gallows, Knox and Brisco, lol. We already have 2 pretty good big man wrestlers in their prime for the heavyweight division with a few more on their way. What else do you want? Another 10 Sting title reigns? These guys have potential. Hulk fuckin' Hogan didn't lift the ratings, why would they spend more money on any of the guys I've mentioned?



English is not my first language. Please take that into account before you start to attack my grammar. Thanks.

Re: Aces & Eights Discussion Thread

At this point it wouldn't matter if it was Goldberg, Batista, etc. because the way it's been booked by now no one would care. Why should anyone care about this when the evil ruthless motorcycle gang that's supposed to be terrorizing TNA gets their ass kicked week after week to the point of having to invite a doughy Mr. Anderson as backup? Now, it doesn't help that the reveals have been so anticlimactic you can hear the crowd go from groaning to utter indifference.

Now, maybe Knox and Gallows have potential, but they'll have to work twice as hard now to get them over now that they've been stuck in this faction. Of course why they would stay after this angle mercifully gets put down at Lockdown makes no sense in storyline, but whatever.

Gallows is incredibly young for his look, size, and skill level.. only 27 I belive. He still has another 10 years in him easily. I'd say he's just coming into his prime, and they should definitely take advantage of having him on their roster, he could be much bigger than people have given him credit for.

Knox is like 33 or something, but he's still got a good 8 years in him, probably more because the guy stays in damn good shape.


ive said this in this thread already, but it should be said again. People hating on this group are mostly smarks that don't know as much as they think... I have quite a few friends personally that have gotten back into wrestling because of the general booking of tna and a&8s. I've seen others on other forums popping up for no other reason than to try and find stuff out about them. It's been fine, not great, but certainly not bad either. They should be trying to get epic out of it though, so you could say their falling short.
