Re: TNA doing it right with Aces and 8's (Impact 31/1 Spoiler)

D'Lo was at the TNA after party last week still wearing his jeans and black hoodie. He wasn't making much of a secret he was behind the mask. All the Aces and 8s guys were hanging out together actually. Eric Bischoff and his son were in the corner just chilling together though.

Can't see them bringing Matt back, although to his credit he deserves to be commended for how he's turned his life around. Its all well and good poking fun at someone but you have to give him props for coming out of his problems. If they were to bring Matt back I'd have him down in OVW helping Doug and Al Snow out, like WWE does with X-Pac.

Re: TNA doing it right with Aces and 8's (Impact 31/1 Spoiler)

One Question:

Why does the VP of Aces and Eights give DOC and Knox grief for losing their mask, yet Garrett Bischoff is allowed to just randomly pull his off?

Re: TNA doing it right with Aces and 8's (Impact 31/1 Spoiler)

The leader has to be somebody like...

Austin
Batista
Goldberg
A modern medical miracle happens and Edge is cleared to wrestle
and he brings Christian Cage with him.

Like, those are the 4 people I can think of where I care.

Everybody else is Who Gives A Fuck? level guy. D'Lo Brown? 10 months of your programming and the big reveal is D'Lo Brown?
Even a good wrestler I like on the roster like Bully Ray or James Storm doesn't even feel adequate.
They can't pay off this 10 month angle with somebody I care about.
And God forgive we get another authority figure pushing 50 (Jeff Jarrett) or Eric Bischoff, who is pushing 60
taking time away from all this young talent they have and have been bringing in with the Gut Check.
What a step backwards would it be for these geezers to be so egomaniacal to believe that they'd be a big payoff
to the A angle that has been running for nearly a year now. Just go away, Christ.

That's a good point. Maybe you have to prove yourself before you unmask. Like Taz, Anderson and Devon who dont actually need masks. Maybe months of setting up Kurt has given them their stripes.

The one I dont get is why did Taz give Wes a "no" in the Gut Check?

So far all the "reveals" have been ex-TNA wrestlers (devon, garett, brisco, anderson)... the rest (DOC and Knox) was forced. I think it's because by revealing themselves they will never be able to infiltrate the company and pull a swerve like wes did. But this is all speculation until the "higher power" speaks.

D-lo brown was there to say yes. So even if tazz said no, it would be a tie or win for brisco.



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.

Devon was a forced unmask too. My memory is hazy, but didn't he give Bully a Spine Buster, through a table, and then get unmasked by Hogan?

Yeah but it looked like they did it on purpose because devon started laughing and wasn't trying to cover his face like Knox or DOC.

Re: Aces & Eights Discussion Thread

As predictable as it was, at least it finally happened, and the manner in which it happened was actually probably the best-executed of the reveals (take that as you will, though).

Re: Aces & Eights Discussion Thread

I think he should just put the mask back on. Jeff Hardy wears fucking facepaint. No reason why Wes cant just put the mask on. Might even sell a few of those things at the arenas.

Talking Re: Aces & Eights Discussion Thread

Brisco was obviously a member the whole time but pretty sure everyone knew that lol. Couple weeks ago a guy with the same hair as Joey Ryan was in A/E during a run in too. Predicting he's the next reveal!
