Death of Wrestling: Aces and Eights II
Greetings to all… It’s David Davis with my weekly blog: Death of Wrestling. For all of those who read this regularly, you will know that this is not a blog about bashing wrestling; it’s a blog of a frustrated fan, who loves the business and wishes that each week it could be a little better.
Apologies for my emotional splurging last week, this week I promise it’s business as usual. (big sigh) Aces and Eights (bigger sigh). It doesn’t feel like that long ago that I was singing this storylines praises – in fact I seem to remember thinking we were Bound for Glory…
What a difference a few months make! Now I have actually written about them in a fairly negative fashion, which I believe was around the time that they were essentially mid-card jobbing during PPVs… and… well… things haven’t really got much better, have they???
Actually, I think it’s fair to say that things have only got worse… a lot worse… Now I don’t have anything against Wes Brisco & Garrett Bischoff per se… but I have to admit when the list of names of people who could be potential members was floating around, I didn’t really have them at the top of that list – or want them to be on the list full stop.
For my money, the only place this storyline should have gone was them revealing Jeff Jarrett to be the leader and for it to be his way of getting control of his company back… But even if that were still going to be the case: do we believe that this ragtag band of misfits could really deliver Jarrett anything; especially his company?!?
Admittedly there are lots of other places the storyline could have gone, but unfortunately the Aces and Eights storyline pretty much sums up TNA: close, but no cigar… And that is coming from a fan who’s sat front row at a TNA show.
It feels like the upper brass of TNA have found something that the fans like and they are going to milk it for anything it’s worth… The problem is that fans are fickle and it won’t take too much for them to forget that the Aces and Eights storyline used to be a good one. Of course, we the fans are what keeps wrestling alive; if we turn off then yep… it’s the DOW.
That’s all folks… As always, post your comments, thoughts and opinions below! Or message me on twitter and let me know what you think the ‘Death of Wrestling’ is and I might just blog about it!!! Peace and I’m out…
