Sadly TNA has a plan for A8's, why not drop the angle right after the reveal? That seems like the smart thing to do.
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.
Is the poster nice? yes. But its not original. Its a rip off of Sons of Anarchy. Doesnt take a genius to do something like this. TNA creative relying on popular cable tv shows to inspire their storylines may cause trouble down the line. You have to come up with things in house, not just steal.
