So if Jay Bradley is in A&E, why did Taz give him a "no" in Gutcheck? Playing the face still (Since Bradley was drwing mad heat in the impact zone)?

If Spike doesn't care about the ratings then don't see TNA going anywhere. Especially considering all the money they are making from overseas markets.

Alot of people don't seem to understand that you can book a successful slow paced storyline only if you can keep it interesting.

Having people like Devon Dudley, WWE midcarders and now Tazz is not going to make people tune in. In order to keep a storyline interesting you have to give people something to be interested about. Adding a retired announcer to a group of masked men isn't going to make people interested.

You all may make fun of people with "IT'S STILL REAL TO ME DAMN IT!" for the young kids or marks or whatever, but you guys are even worse than them. You have this deep-seeded legitimate rage for Cena and his fans to the point where you let it affect your day to day life.

Grow up. Seriously.

Who is the guy that they call "PP" or whatever they call him? The one D-Von refers too before making any decisions.


Also, this angle should be ending soon unless they've decided to add more months to it. They said about 3-4 months ago that it would be going on for 6 more months so should be getting to the end of it, I would think...

What money is this? Challenge TV is their only major overseas market and thats a cheap channel that shows old repeats of game shows. They just cut their PPVs down to 4. That suggests they arent making money. And of course Spike cares about ratings. What a foolish thing to say.

Some stories are helped when they're short or have faster pacing, while others are helped by being long and having slower pacing. A good writer know how to pace a story in order to make it better. This is not the case with this angle. It is filled with a lot of filler for whatever reason. They need to stop prolonging it and get to meat of the story because right now it feels like we're still in act 1.



Never said that. I'm sure Taz joining won't help Aces & 8s, but it won't kill them either. Stop resorting to hyperbole.
I disagree. This storyline is obviously building up to something big. I'll agree that a lot of things have gone down that didn't make since or left me scratching and underwhelmed but I think that a lot of these small things will eventually lead to the bigger picture if you catch my drift. In my opinion this angle hasn't been perfect but it's been good enough for me not want to see it go away quickly. It brings a lot to the shows and I look forward to seeing what happens next week. Everybody wants to see shit go down now but they don't realize that this storyline is still in it's early stages. Look at all of the people in their groups who still haven't been revealed. People may not want to hear this but this angle isn't ending anytime soon and I remember there was a report that said that they where looking to have the Aces and eights around for a long time. I'm not saying that this angle perfect but I'm enjoying it enough to the point where I look forward to it every week. As long as the eventual payoff is worth it I'm all good.

You dont get wrestling. Well done. Keep posting nonsense.

lol coming from you of all people this is hilarious. You seem to think that you know what's going on in every fans mind and you seem to also know how to predict the future.

BTW, I said you where expecting to much from the small additions like Devond and Tazz not the whole angle smart guy.

Like I said, it's been seven months and it still feels like it's in act 1. It shouldn't still be in its' early stages. And yes, I know it's going to last a long time. It's obvious from how slow the angle is being paced. That's why I don't believe it's going to end at Lockdown like the dirt sheets reported. And quite frankly, I don't care if a payoff is good. If the a movie or novel is slow, boring, and bad then I still wouldn't give a shit if the ending was great.
