Re: Aces & Eights Discussion Thread

I forgot Aries did make the save, but that could still be a good explanation for him turning to Aces and Eights.

Re: Aces & Eights Discussion Thread

I'm sure this has been mentioned before, but what about America's Most Wanted Chris Harris? Makes sense why A&8s initially made Storm appear like the leader.

Harris said he'd love to do a reunion of AMW, but felt it was imposible because Storm is now an accomplished singles competitor. . . Maybe this was TNA's way of making Harris more relevant?

Would be a good reason for Gail Kim to join A&8s too.

I think every knockout has been mentioned for joining Ace & 8s. I honestly don't get the obsession with this. Why would it make Ace & 8s anymore relevant having the KOs in it.

Re: Aces & Eights Discussion Thread

As said many times, what they need are 3 things...

1. Wins: Plain and simple these guys have got to stop being booked to look weaker than the spirit squad. I cant get over when Sting makes his big return and walks to the cage, then proceeds to beat the entire team single handed like they were a group of high school math club members trying to steal Mike Tyson's wallet. Not to mention that same night Samoa Joe takes on 2 of their top members by himself...YOu simply cannot build a credible heel stable if all they do it lose. Nobody is scared of them right now, nobody respects them, and soon, nobody will care...might be too late on that last one

2. Stars: Yes they have Devon, DOC, and now Knox...but they, in their infinite lack of booking ability, have made all three of those men lose to the faces in damn near squash matches. Knox and DOC were both destroyed by Sting in less then 5 minutes in matches that were glorified spankings...Sting is a legend, yes, but he is also 54 and nowhere near the wrestler he used to be, that can be seen by anyone watching and it severely cheapens the product to push him like he is still the Sting from the 90s. Further, even if you want to book him to win, at least make it competitive!! Anyway, back on topic, they need some other masks to come off and reveal big name stars...probably time for the leader to be revealed although honestly...I see this whole thing being a giant Russo like swerve and the leader will be someone like Bully ray or Hulk himself...or Eric Bitchoff *cringe*. They need less Mr. Anderson...and more people that actually fit the look and feel of the group...Anderson is just not a fit at all to that group.

3. Theme: They need to do something about their theme music, frankly speaking it sucks. They need something that lets the crowd know that the shit has just got real...TNA is not known for their theme music to say the least...but the main heel stable of the company should have a theme that reflects that. Like it or not, you have to admit that a persons theme adds or detracts from them quite a bit. If you don't believe me, imagine Goldberg coming out to Nickleback.

Re: Aces & Eights Discussion Thread

I think everyone is over analyzing this angle. As long as the night after they lose a match the next show they come on like they never lost a match in their lives everyones forgets what happens in the past. Plus the reveals sort of reset the scoreboard of wins and losses. Is anyone gonna remember angle beating an aces & eights member when brisco eventually "betrays" him?? And I dont mind the theme either.

This angle will never live up to hype or expectation but it gives a good platform for guys like gallows, brisco etc. It is what it is.

Re: Aces & Eights Discussion Thread

in hindsight, which way did TAZ Vote on brisco btw?

Plus did anyone else think he was really cold to Bradley? Maybe because he is a prospect or sees him as a threat???
