The majority of people bitching about the storyline are those that were expecting big reveals, I never let that cloud my judgement, and I am willing to give these guys a chance to prove themselves or fail. There is plenty of potential to go around even just with Knox and Doc, Fuck D-Lo and Devon, I'm happy with guys with tremendous potential getting a shot.
I don't think the reveals have much impact, though they've certainly been lacking mainly because they're not handled in the best way. Take last weeks with Mike Knox. Firstly, Sting, Joe, and Angle are taking his mask off and they're not facing the hard camera. Second the director cuts away just as Knox's mask is taken off. These reveals have no resonance whatsoever. Devon was very similar.
Ultimately, the biggest flaw with this story, in my eyes, is that this group sucks. They lose every match, get beaten up by old guys like Sting and Hogan. They had Joe and Angle in a cage. They take out Angle, bust him open and they STILL lose when Angle pins one of them. We're supposed to treat this group as serious threats, but TNA's given us no reason to.
It's been 6 months yet we have no real idea why these men are even invading. Are they trying to take over TNA? Kill it? Why would they even want it? After this many months we need to know SOMETHING about them and their motives. Given this feels like the 8th time TNA's done this story of a group of invaders, fans can only care so much.
