Re: Aces & Eights Discussion Thread

Yeah, it was his opening promo to start the show off. It's in his contract a la IRONCLAD Big Show. Only he dubbed it as TEFLON Taz.

Laugh in any fashion you like. At least they covered their tracks.

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.

For the first time I truly saw a real chance that this "higher power" could be Bischoff or Jarrett. Tazz reminding Dixie of the language in his contract and how he could "own this place" if anyone touches him...could Jeff or Eric's familiarity with TNA's contract situation have led them to recruit Taz because he is untouchable ?


Did anyone catch Taz's mention in his promo about their "agenda" ? "An individual agenda to get revenge and redemption". Surprised there isn't more talk about that point.

Its hard to dissect the promo he cut when quite honestly it was one of the most boring, rambling, poorly written things I have sadly had to listen to in a while. I mean, come the fuck on, "I have a contract that says if anyone touches me I can own this company"...why the fuck would you give a god damn announcer a contract like that? People are hired as Managers for the entire show that are beat up weekly with no monetary or business repercussions on TNA...but Taz...Fucking TAZ!!! Has a contract that is so iron tight he can "own this company" if anyone hits him...In that case have Mr. Anderson whom is a contracted TNA wrestler punch him in the face(Taz is a former ECW legend and can take one on the chin), and boom Aces now owns TNA...the whole thing is fucking retarded

As for the prospect of Eric or Jarret being the leader of Aces...Yes I have considered this, and literally pray it is not going to happen like that. It would be the single stupidest thing TNA has ever done to make them the leader of this group. Eric is a short, arrogant dork that says anything but Biker or cool...He always looked like a tool when he did NWO promos even...this would be even worse...and Double J...just please god don't make it Jarret, I have nothing against him, but he is anything but a fit for that group...not to mention that neither of these guys are draws...If it happens, fans like me would be like "so this entire year long story about a biker gang running wild on TNA...was a giant Russo swerve?". Not to mention they already tried this with the whole "they" shit...people saw it was just these old farts and the ratings(rightfully so) tanked...the saddest part though...is with TNA writers, I actually hold this as a high possibility.

Back to Taz...I just hope they do not make him the mouth piece for the group Ala Paul Hayman with the Invasion storyline in WWE...last night was some of the worse commentary I have heard in a while

Re: Aces & Eights Discussion Thread

Taz would have a contract like that because of his neck problems. Much like Bobby Heenan's real like neck problems where used to enhance the NWO storyline. When WCW was at MGM grand and that had the back lot beat down of various WCW wrestlers Bobby Heenan on air told Bischoff he wasn't doing the show because of his neck problem and him worrying about what the NWO could do to him.

If you are trying to portray this as "real" it would make sense that any announcer would have a stipulation like that given the history of wrestling and how characters act sometimes.

Just to touch on this, with Taz they would be best to have him filled in on all the nooks and crannies of the story and the direction it's going, and what they don't want him to say or touch on. Let him cut more worked shoot style promos and less scripted promos, it will play to his strengths much better IMO.

Hopefully we get a worked shoot between Taz and Bully in ring during the taped UK shows, and another with Taz and Hogan.

I'd much rather see him as a mouthpiece/manager for the group and not be in the booth all show.

I am just glad Taz is doing the talking now instead of Devon.

Re: Aces & Eights Discussion Thread

Taz promo was basically "Fuck you all, I'm with aces&eights. If you wanna know the reasons, then keep watching"

Re: Aces & Eights Discussion Thread

Mild, mild spoilers for the February tapings of UK-Impact, but jesus. Aces and Eights are still booked to be total weaklings. They've yet to do anything of true consequence.
