I tend to agree with this. The reveal of Garett and Wes was done very well in my mind. I did like the way TNA pulled that one off. That being said you look at the mix of guys and there's nothing that really stands out... Devon, Anderson, Knox, DOC, Taz, Wes, and Garett. Not a single person in the group stands out as something special.

I would have liked to have seen D Von win the TV title back, Knox and DOC win the Tag Team Titles. Then have the VP win the World Title from Hardy only to then be revealed as a big name. I feel they need a very strong leader who can dominate the program and has a background with bikes (Goldberg). Anyone else coming in just to be thrown into the mix would not make sense to me. If they did something like AJ Styles it would be ground breaking, but AJ doesn't fit the bill of a biker let alone a leader of a biker gang.

They're the worst faction introduced by TNA ever, at this point.

It all goes down whether the big reveal for the leader will be a success or a letdown.

Congratulations, you never watched TNA during the immortal days.

I could of Sworn at the start of the A&8s when they was doing their first round of attacks,I seen Sonjay Dutt up under the Mask.I don't know what episode it was on.But it was during the Open Fight Night Concepts.He was the one helping guard the Entrance to the Ring.(His Eyes an Complextion gave it away) Maybe its Just me.But If I find the episode Ill post It.He was denied a Match That Night by Hogan.But Mickie James would fit In just Right In my book.

I can only think of underwhelming payoffs or they pull a WWE and just explain nothing.

No it is not all "on the fly". It's pretty obvious they have changed direction and decided against certain things to extend the story as they seemingly have been trying to stretch it to LD. But things like Taz digging at TK since he pretty much started in the booth show that they had decided to turn Taz weeks before it happened.

Some guys who have worn masks were likely roster members but that does not mean they will be a part of the group. In some cases guys were simply playing a warm body to fill out numbers.

I think they could have done better with Aces and 8s.. for one, they should have started unmasking guys right after BFG. Nothing happened after BFG, they just attacked guys randomly backstage for fun.. this storyline has had its ups and downs, there have been both good and bad things with this storyline but I dont think "they did it right" with this group.

At times the whole point of their existence seems stupid and then after weeks of hibernation they spark this storyline with a new twist. Im not saying this is a bad storyline but its evident that its not planned very well.

I am not really very much into this storyline and neither do I hate it, but if the payoff turns out to be good, An8's will go down in my view as a successful stable. And no! they dont need Goldberg for that to happen. James Storm or Bully Ray would do just that.
