That would be true if anyone cared about them with their masks on. Which they dont. And the masks are now coming off so by your theory nobody will care about them without the masks on again.

Re: Aces & Eights Discussion Thread

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.

PLEASE SUPPORT THE ANTI TROLL MOVEMENT - JUST IGNORE THEM. PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!

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.

Re: Aces & Eights Discussion Thread

I personally think tna jumped the gun with this one because in the begining they had no idea who were going to be in a's and eights. They should have had all this planned out from the get-go. They look weak atm but you have to remember they tried to take out the champ back in September. All it takes is one big event for them to look strong.

Re: Aces & Eights Discussion Thread

although the story line hasn't lived up to its potential people have gotta understand is that it is helping the new wrestlers like gallows have meaning and a back story instead of debuting on their own from scratch.

FUCK RATINGS & "WHATS BEST FOR BUSINESS", I WANNA BE ENTERTAINED!

I don't think that much of what you post on here is interesting, but I still give it a fair read.

Now it needs to fix it to where they are introduced with credibility, not taking bumps for a 100 year old man.
Anyone can take half a post and make it look like the posters agenda is different, I wish I could report you for being a tool.

Never mind.

I have to agree with you here. The biggest issue with this storyline shouldn't be who's in the group, it should be that a) they don't seem that strong and b) we still have no idea what their purpose is. Sure they have their moments like when they're taking someone out but when it comes to actual in-ring matches, they're booked very weak. No one should expect them to win every match because that has the opposite effect (then they're "too" powerful) but you can have them lose without making it look bad. Then there's problem B. If we just knew what their deal was I think we could forgive a lot of things or at least things would start to make sense. They've taken people's desires for longer, more drawn out story lines and taken it to the extreme. There's still hope for them to turn things around but that hope is fading fast.
