Bully Ray and Brooke Hogan wedding: Aces & Eights play wedding crashers: January 17, 2013
Brooke Hogan and Bully Ray’s wedding ended in anarchy (as expected). A wrestling wedding can never end in happily ever after — it’s a rule. And you know it’s a real special occasion when Hulk Hogan washes off the shoe polish that’s been on his face since 1997.
Here’s what didn’t happen: Bully didn’t turn on Brooke. Brooke didn’t turn on Bully. Eric Bischoff wasn’t disguised as the minister. Spike Dudley didn’t drop everyone with Acid Drops. Tommy Dreamer didn’t cry. OK, maybe that did happen. Hey, he’s sensitive.
No, we get Taz interrupting just before Brooke and Bully are pronounced man and wife. Big reveal, folks: Taz is in Aces & Eights, apparently because he likes leather vests. The rest of the Sons of Anarchy attacked because they’re still upset about Opie getting killed in prison. Or something like that. They beat down Bully, his not-so-extreme groomsmen and the Hulkster, who looked like he belonged in a Life Alert commercial.
Luke Gallows and Mike Knox grabbed Brooke Hogan, with Gallows screaming at her to “look at your daddy.” This was totally creepy because a) Brooke’s boobs were falling out and b) the Hulkster probably paid for said boobies. There may have been a moment when the Hulkster channeled Brad Pitt in Kalifornia and told Brooke to “put your titty back up.” Or the Hulkster kayfabed it, brothers. (The Wrestling Observer says Hulk told Brooke to “Check on Bully.” Her reply: “My boob’s out.”)
What are we left with? Taz, the newest member of TNA’s baddest heel faction, can’t wrestle or bump. There isn’t anyone on the TNA roster who could fill that role and have those two key abilities? No? OK, sure, whatever. This angle needs to end.

Devon is Aces & Eight’s “Sgt. at Arms”: October 18, 2012
At least he’s not the leader.

Imagining Hulk Hogan explaining the Aces & Eights reveal during TNA’s booking meeting for Bound for Glory: October 14, 2012
"Here’s the plan for Aces & Eights, brother. They beat the hell out of Sting and Bully, win the match, then my music hits. 
"I come down the ramp, brother, moving as slow as possible. One by one, I punch the Aces. And by one, I mean one punch brother. Knock ‘em all out, leaving one of the Aces in the ring.
"I block the punch, and send him in the ropes for the big boot, even through I can’t get my leg above his lower abdomen, brother.
"Then we unmask the guy to reveal … Devon."
"Great idea, Hulkster." — Dixie Carter
"You’re a creative genius, Hulk." — Eric Bischoff
"Here’s the kicker, dudes. Devon will pretend his contract’s up, and he’ll leave the company without dropping the TV Title. Really, who gives a shit about the TV Title? I’ll talk him up on Twitter, bros. Pretend like we’ve made a big mistake by letting the dude go."
"Brilliant!" — Bruce Pritchard.
"This will all build to …"
Hulk not having a match with Aces & Eights. Seriously. Sting and Bully get beat up by Aces only to have old crippled Hulk Hogan come out and kill the group dead — if it wasn’t already — by punching each member once. This is late ’90s WCW all over again. Build to a match that isn’t ever going to happen. TNA must hate making money.

Aces & Eights kidnap Hulk Hogan and Sting: September 27, 2012

And the winner of worst angle of 2012 is …

TNA’s Turning Point pay-per-view poster leaves no doubt that Aces & Eights is a rip off of Sons of Anarchy: October 1, 2012
Except Sons is an enjoyable show. The Aces & Eights angle left the rails last week with the biker gang kidnapping Sting and Hulk Hogan (not to mention, threatening people with knives). My suspension of disbelief was totally lost. No one bothered to call the cops? No one bothered to call them after a week of Joseph Park being kidnapped? 
Also … why would the company promote a group of “outsiders” on its poster if they don’t work for TNA? Especially before we know the result of Bound for Glory’s match? I thought Dave Lagana and Bruce Prichard were supposed to help the stories make sense, not completely leave reality.

Eric Bischoff appears to be in charge of Aces & Eights: September 27, 2012
Bischoff needs a better device to conceal his voice. I can tell it’s Bischoff. You can. But Hulk Hogan and Sting, who have worked with the guy for nearly 20 years, can’t? So lame.
Anyway, the angle is … a tag team match at Bound for Glory. Aces & Eights pick two guys and Hogan picks two guys. If the biker gang wins, Aces & Eights gets all-access to TNA.

Matt Morgan shows up at TNA house show: September 15, 2012

The Blueprint was also chased off by security after giving Robbie E. the Carbon Footprint at a house show in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. Looks like the so-called “war” Morgan is starting is in TNA after all.

Morgan also sent a few less-than-cryptic Tweets: “All 2nite really meant was I’m tired of ‘just be patient Matt,’ being patronized & most of all being SOLD DREAMS! The real question is…… Who am I with? Time will tell. ‘Til then,Tick-Tock…”

Is Morgan teasing being with Aces & Eights?

TNA releases the intro video to tonight’s No Surrender pay-per-view: September 9, 2012

The only guy in the video who I don’t take seriously is Jeff Hardy. The Charismatic Enigma just doesn’t come off as wanting the win as much as the others.

TNA Before the Bell takes a look at No Surrender’s final four Bound for Glory Series matches: September 7, 2012

TNA really does a fantastic job with its hype videos, and this video —featuring profiles of Samoa Joe, James Storm, Bully Ray and Jeff Hardy — gets over each competitor’s desire to win it all.

Aces & Eights story needs to move forward or end: September 6, 2012
The Aces & Eights story has grown old. I enjoyed the early mystery of the story, but the story isn’t advancing. TNA seems unwilling to unmask any of the members for fear of disappointment (kinda like the Black Scorpion). I wouldn’t be surprised if Bobby Roode ended up as the man under the mask against Austin Aries at No Surrender on Sunday.

The (alleged) master criminals who stole the TNA World Championship: August 30, 2012

It’s a work! They’re Aces & Eights!

The TNA World Championship was stolen in Iowa, two men charged: August 30, 2012
The TNA World Championship (and a replica) were stolen in Ottumwa, Iowa? No wonder the TNA faces let the Aces & Eights beat the hell out of Austin Aries on last week’s Impact. How does someone even get close enough to the world championship to steal it. I can’t wait to hear how these guys swiped the belt from the Greatest Man That Ever Lived.
KCCI TV in Des Moines reports that the belt is worth $6,000 (the replica is worth $400). The championships that were stolen on August 18 have been recovered, and charges have been filed.
Joel Luke, 33, is charged with second-degree theft, and Forrest Jamison, 39, is charged with accessory after the fact in connection with the theft.
