Re: TNA Booking mistakes 2012/2013
I dont think TNA misused AJ at all. He is arguably the face of the company, and they spent all last year shitting on him. Time after time again, his kindness was taken for granted and his integrity was questioned, even by the fans. This may be one of the few heel turns where a wrestler ca blame the fans and actually have it make sense.
As for Aces and Eights, its just ridiculous for multiple reasons.
- In the later part of the angle, before they gained access to the arena, everyone was questioning where they were coming from, even though the camera would show us the exact door they'd come from.
- Gaining access to the building somehow put them on the roster and allowed Hogan to force them into matches??? Someone please explain this to me. I thought gaining access just meant they could walk around freely instead of having to hide from security. Which still makes no sense as the leader made it clear that they could be anyone working backstage. They even had members in the crowd, without anyone figuring out who they were, after Aces and Eights were given access to the arena. Why they'd need to earn access to the arena is beyond me.
- TNA has dragged this angle on for far too long. When the original nWO formed, they took 3 - 4 weeks. Aces and Eights has to be on their sixth or seventh month now. If you're going to drag the angle on this long, people better be getting unmasked every few weeks, or the people you unmask better be somewhat credible. Thus far, Devon is the highest profile member unmasked.
Garret and Wes are very underused, especially if my huntch is right and they are a major reveal of being part of Aces and Eights. Thus far all we've seen of them is a few sloppy matches,Kurt Angle shunning their advances to help him, and Samoa Joe get angry. TNA should have them out there every week saving Kurt and Joe, watching their back, rising up the TNA ranks as a tag team. They need to be somewhat relevant in people's minds if they will be revealed.
