Worst: Kurt Angle doesn’t watch his own television show
Hey Kurt, remember when D-Lo, aka Voice Modulator guy, aka most obvious unrevealed Aces & Eights member, subbed in for the mysteriously absent Al Snow in Wes Brisco’s Gut Check decision? And remember when Tazz, the other person involved in that decision, revealed himself to be a member of Aces & Eights? You know how Wes Brisco is also a member of Aces & Eights? These things are kind of sort of definitely related. So when you say that you’re responsible for Wes Brisco being a part of this company, you are super duper wrong.
Best: RVD vs. Kenny King
No, really! This wasn’t a bad match by any means, and I think it played out exactly like it should have. RVD is lazy and slow as molasses, and Kenny King is neither of those things. King spends most of the match getting in a lot of offense and carrying the match, RVD comes back at the end so he doesn’t exert too much energy and get gassed by the end of it and gets the win. Kenny King looks great and crazy fast, and RVD doesn’t look like the weakest champion since….twenty minutes ago. It’s not the best, and is nowhere near the match level of what the X-Division should be doing, but it was fun, I didn’t hate it, and there was no Christian York. I can dig it.
Best: Whatchoo gonna do, when Hulk Hogan bails on you?
The match is…whatever, but hey, look, story progression! I enjoyed this for a few reasons, but I fully admit that number one is “Hulk Hogan didn’t get attacked, Mike Knox just showed him a picture of Moamar Ghaddafi and sh-t got real.”
UGGGGH LIBYA STILL MAKES HIM SO MAD
Number two is that it plays into the idea that maybe Hulk Hogan is the one behind Aces & Eights. In the interest of not actually sitting through this match again, and because TNA has had four weeks to ruminate on where to go with the Aces & Eights storyline, let’s go over some popular (and not so popular theories as to who the “Higher Power” is. Put on your speculatin’ spectacles and let’s lethally lockdown some guesses!
