To be fair, though, everyone knows those are just local pockets of TVs. Apart from New Zealand and Europe, it doesn't say any other country shows Impact. And you would think if the TV was strong enough, they would tour places like Australia and Portugal as regularly as they do the UK.

Re: Aces & Eights Discussion Thread

Bischoff and Jarrett fit the description of being turned on by the industry, Storm not so much, I mean he just had a number one contenders match. Jeff Hardy actually somewhat fits the profile because he everyone "turned" on him when he was having troubles with drugs. Doubt they'd turn Hardy heel again though.

Re: Aces & Eights Discussion Thread

First of all isn't a biker gang supposed to have bikes ? Chuck Palumbo rides bikes even builds them ... I think that if they had a huge nnamed leader they wouldn't have added tazz and anderson .. I know how wrestling factions go and the fact I'm sure they don't. Have vkms phat pockets then its . Gonna be double J or even kirk angel ... its kinda like the rikishi / austin angle when anyone who knows that storyline it was supoosed to be austin/jarrett but jj didn't resign with wwf and this is in a way kinda like that .. if its a big outside name as their fearless leader ill be surprised but watch it end up being hogan . Bet everyone wouldJust bc its tna ..the tazz addtion is neither good or bad it just is . I bet everyone would pee a little if it was cm punk and then tna would have u guessing for good haha..

That is a fair point actually. I'd like to see Taz riding in the sidecar.

I doubt you're going to get a bunch of bikes in the Impact Zone though. This group would have been so much better if you could hear them coming before they attacked. Like a good biker movie. Like Hogan and Sting are in the ring and you suddenly hear the bikes engines going and its like "oh, fuck here they come".

Portugal for example is in the middle of a huge economic crisis, people don't have money for entertainment anymore. It has nothing to do how the show does in ratings, it's all about the market as a touring place, UK is a solid country to tour because of their long history with wrestling... the rest is a risk.

If the japan rumor is true, then that's another solid market to work with.



The reason why we don't get fresh ideas and promotions rising in American Pro Wrestling is because the majority of the community is happy with the same old shit and will reject any chance of change. There is a risk in doing new things, 9 times out of 10, it leads to 50+ pages of bitching and moaning. While business gets turned into a dictatorship and more and more out of touch. Support the indies, support New Pro Wrestling.

I agree or even have a bunch of bikes come over the pa and have smoke fill the arena. But taz in a sidecar would be vintage Jimmy Hart ndubyao

With tna on a UK tour this week and taping tv over here could he maybe be a new member.

@LionheartUK
He said a few weeks back he ain't interested in joining either TNA or WWE anymore since he's over 30 now, so I doubt.

Re: Aces & Eights Discussion Thread

Lionheart cried on twitter about not being in British Boot Camp. Magnus and Jarrett buried him for being a mark. This idiot ain't joining TNA.

Personally I think when they announce the winner of British Boot Camp, the Aces and 8s should arrive and beat down whoever is in the ring and make him a member. Could only work with Marty or Spud, though. It would immediately give the winner of Boot Camp a regular roll on Impact.
