Re: Has Aces and 8's gotten better?

Not really sure to be honest. I do like the intrigue about who the VP of Aces and Eights could be though. I like them but I have got to admit they're getting a bit dull. Hopefully they win at Lockdown and gain a bit of momentum, because at the moment they seem as much as a threat as a Teddy Bear, they just keep losing and it's hurting them. I do like the idea but it seems to be going in the wrong direction, also some of the members haven't been that shocking at all. Taz shocked me, but the others, not really.

Maybe they can change that by having a shocking reveal for the VP and then the Leader when they finally reveal. Not have the obvious choices that have been floating around.

Re: Aces & Eights Discussion Thread

I would love it if Sting somehow joined them and started a rivalry with Bully. It would be a good use of Sting.

With the addition of Bully as the WHC they could really gain some momentum and legitimise the faction. I can't really remember the NWO without the WHC for too long back in the day

Re: Who will be revealed as the Aces and 8's VP next week?

I wouldn't mind it if it was Joe Park, who admits he was playing them all for fools and buries the lawyer gimmick.

Re: Has Aces and 8's gotten better?

BIG FAT YES

This is getting more awesome.

It has gone to far sometimes between the big news and something to happen.

But it ALWAYS has kept me intersting, and you just want to know more.

Re: Has Aces and 8's gotten better?

no. it's been booked very poorly and has really dragged on. they've barely had any credibility, have for the most part kept losing week and week and have been made to look like a bunch of jobbers.

and then they put bischoff and brisco in the reveal. okay tna.

Re: Has Aces and 8's gotten better?

I never thought they were bad really. I just couldn't understand why they were losing all the time. There was a solid two month stretch where it felt like they never got over on anybody.

People have criticized it for being a group full of "nobodies" but what about The Shield? All of those guys were unknowns outside of Indy reputations, and nobody had a problem with that. Nor should they. The Shield is awesome. I just wish TNA had booked Aces & Eights a little stronger if they were going to be this murderous gang of thugs.

Look at Knox. He gets unmasked and the next week he comes out an smashes Kurt Angle with a hammer. OK Cool. Five minutes later he is doing a job to Sting. If I were Knox I'd have been pissed. How is anyone supposed to maintain heat when you do that?

This is why I think they need to dominate at Lockdown. Team TNA is arguably a very strong team but I think Aces and Eights should be extra aggressive in the match. You could say Lethal Lockdown was like their home, ready for destruction. It should be the starting path to gain them some legitimate heat and momentum.
