Re: Aces & Eights Discussion Thread

In order to get the payoff, they need to put in the time. One thing people need to remember is this is a 'weekly business'. They need to get viewers to tune-in weekly. If they end every angle ASAP, they wouldn't get any ratings.

The past few weeks they've been drawing between 1.2-1.6 million viewers, so the storyline seems to be working. If they ended A&E tomorrow what do they have to fallback on? Nothing atm.

Remember it's not about the destination, it's about the journey.

Ugh, this storyline is fucking treading water at this point. It needs to end by Lockdown.

That's the difference between you and me. I don't find it boring most of the time and judging from most of the people I see discussing it around the net they seem to agree with me. But yeah, if you find it completely boring than I can see where you're coming from.

Rushing ahead? This started in June! This is the 7th month of this angle. To Hell with "rushing along" that is 28 weeks of Impact and 7 PPVs. Tonight could have been the blowoff!

Hey Diesel Power, I know this is kinda random but what are the chances that you're former poster Shirley Crabtree?

Shirley got his old account back, so it's most likely not him.

They also don't have a history of making Hogan the star of the show instead of the world champ.
