Coming off the big night of 1.3.13 we are all still trying to recover over the newest revelation in what is known as the Aces & Eights group. The masked biker gang that is slowly being unmasked and revealed had another unmasking. With the revelation being of not a surprise to most especially when the name of the revealed was nearly trending on Twitter last night. It’s also something some fans of the sports entertainment business don’t quite understand. Yet, do we? Those of the wrestling world?
So it was revealed as Mike Knox. Personally I’ve seen a match or two of his. I had a major drought in the wrestling slash sports entertainment world that lasted a few years and was in and around the deaths of Eddie Gurerro and Chris Benoit. With only small “Oh, yeah, there’s that thing called wrestling around” And then I’d watch a televised event here and/or there. I’d sit and ponder I wonder what happened to that guy and would travel to Wikipedia and get lost. Lost in trying to find out what happened to that wrestler and then the next guy. Only to find out that they have either died, retired or gone to WWE.
But now here we are with a former WWE guy being revealed as a member of the Aces & Eights. Now leading us to a few masked men along with Devon (Not)Dudley and Doc a.k.a. do not call me Luke Gallows. With many pondering why are these guys, who have not reached main stream World Heavyweight title reigning status are being revealed as members. Some thinking they’re not quite big enough names to be revealed.
Yet, these are the same guys who were and are still crying that during the WCW days and the New World Order that there were too many big names, too many stars, too many guys in general. Now we have a new heel group over a decade later from the biggest, baddest heel group of all-time making splashes in the water. And we’re still complaining about everything they’re not and everything they are. It’s just like us to complain about why, who and all those other major questions that make no sense at all!
Plus with all this we also got last night them attempting to recruit another member of the TNA roster. With them trying to gain Ken (Mr.) Anderson to join forces with the masked men of Universal Studios. He agreed to join. Yet, when the battle at the end of the night occurred he choose not to enter the ring to save his new stablemates. Instead watching the returning Sting completely destroy them and leading to the unmasking of Mike Knox.
Where does this lead us? What are we hoping for in the future? How does the Aces & Eights over come the complete destruction of their group and the unmasking of another one of their members? Plus, will Sting, Kurt Angle and Samoa Joe eventually team together to face the Unmasked Three of Aces & Eights? Oh and whats the deal with Wes Brisco and Garrett Bischoff? Are they going to join the Aces & Eights because Samoa Joe went all Dic Flair on them?
Millions of questions just popped up! None of them will be answered before next Thursday’s Impact event. Yet we can all ponder what if and all those good other questions. And we can all listen to my guesses and completely agree with them. Because I’m not a member of the Aces & Eights. Because I don’t wear masks! Unlike some wrestlers named Sting!
The Unmasked Three are not the actual leaders of the group. We know that because there’s still a President to be revealed. I’ve named numerous possible people to take this billing. I’ve mentioned Ric Flair, Kurt Angle, Sting, Jeff Jarrett, Hulk Hogan and a whole bunch of other possibility people. Yet and I say yet with the same cautionary tale as ever before because here comes my biggest reveal…
Yes, a new one.
The President of the Aces & Eights will be revealed to be Colt Cabana.
