165 though? This AN8's stuff must be really selling. A lot of people in the crowd at events have had them on.

That's the good thing about being on the road, you actually get to see who's over and what merchandise is being picked up. I bet Main Event Mafia stuff would've been just as big of a hit if they were on the road every other week too

Whatever happened to the guy that Sting beat up last year before BFG and when Sting umasked him in the ring, he said "Thank you. Because of you, I'm patched in"...???

Video? Also, I could see that Aces vest selling well. TNA merch usually does well.

CJ O'Doyle. If I had to guess and based off backstage news and rumors that have been reported I'd say he was intended to be a member but plans changed along the way and they ended up putting Garrett in his spot.

- 3 Month Bump

Aces and Eights started out with potential but the writing was never strong enough to give them credibility. The only payoff was Bully Ray being leader and while that was very well done, it doesn't make up for the total lack of direction this storyline has had from the start. They need to scrap this and do something else because at this point the group is done.

My main gripe is that they haven't presented each member in enough detail to the audience. The audience doesn't know them enough to hate them or cheer them.

For example taking a sample of a couple of SOA regulars. Clay was the corrupted vet keen to make one last impact before retiring. Opie and Jax were best-friends, SAMCRO diehards seen as the next leaders with a new direction in mind. Tig was Clay's last line of defense, a master in the dark arts. Each character was engaged in illegality, but the writers have made us care about each character, their motives and insecurities, all of which have led to their respective rise, downfall and redemptions.

On to the Aces and the character detail at times is amateurish. Knux and DOC were supposed to be best friends, yet we are supposed to take their word on it. When have we seen them have heart to heart's?
Why should we care that Knux has voted Anderson instead?
He states it's for the good of the club, but Anderson has never once presented any direction or philosophy for the club to take forward. To often he's seen joking around, yet we supposed to believe he commands respect?
Since being made VP, he's aided Bully, but no other evolution of the character has happened since his promotion.

Brisco and Garrett are supposed to be the future, yet instead of looking meaner they still look the same green kids that came in. Why don't they show segments of them earning new stripes. Hell why are they the same wimps after being patched in?
Regardless of their talent, they remain devoid of personality despite being in the main heel group.

Devon is supposed to enforce discipline, but aside from the occasional beatdown, what has he done to justify his moniker? Is he really a loss when he's failed to protect Bully on multiple occasions?

Everything under the Aces seems forced or lacks substance. There's no organic nature to their relationships, a lack of brotherhood, that should define a group like the Aces. Why will an audience watch a stable that doesn't have enough juice to actively like or dislike?

I will do Vargas a favor by retiring him in this fight so his family doesn't have to suffer every time he steps in the ring. I'm going to do his wife a favor and not let her cry anymore.

does anyone see an Aces and Eights faction split, similar to what nWo had with black and white against the wolfpac?
on Thursday you saw tension between president Bully and vice president Anderson. you could have Bully and his bodyguard Tito Ortiz, along with Tessmacher. in the ring Bully also made a comment about having Taz. I didn't really understand why Bully even made that comment. now with Devon gone, on the other side you have Anderson along with Garrett, Wes Brisco, and Knux.
Aces and Eights as a group has been kind of weak, so I'm not saying this split would work. if it leads to the end of Aces and Eights quicker I could be okay with it. isn't Anderson's contract coming to an end soon? you could maybe have some type of match where if Anderson's side loses they are all gone. Anderson and his expired contract or whatever could have Anderson either gone completely, or just off TV for awhile. you could have Garrett and Wes go to OVW and get more work. Knux? whatever, he's useless anyway.
but this way you could end Aces and Eights, but still keep Bully as a great heel without hurting him.
