Alex’s Assumptions:

Looking at tonight’s show, I have formed quite an opinion about a lot of the stuff going on. First off, I want to mention the Bound for Glory Series. I knew it would be this back and forth battle for the top spot. Joe is now #1 and I am more than happy to see that. Joe deserved to be in the main event for years. It is great seeing him actually be used and win, win, win! As far as the BFG Series as a whole, I am really liking how they incorporate into the Open Fight Night and how they will with Hardcore Justice. It is going to be a long ride till the end, but I am enjoying these matches every week. The matches tonight were off and on. We didn’t see any X-Division matches nor Knockout matches and I can see why. They focused on the BFG Series for the matches and that took up a lot of time. I would rather have matches that are 10 minutes long compared to short 5 minute matches that give us a 5 minute Knockout match. The Daniels vs. RVD match fell short, in my opinion. I saw a lot of mistakes and it was messy. I hope these two get another chance as I think they could really go. Ray vs. Magnus was nice and probably the best match in the BFG Series tonight. Aries vs. Roode was great for what was aired. I am excited to see these two fight at Hardcore Justice! What I am pretty confused and a bit upset about is the whole idea of the Open Fight Night. First off, we are suppose to see the Television Title get defended each week. Well, we didn’t! Also, when a champion gets called out on Open Fight Night, the title is on the line. The World Title wasn’t tonight. I think TNA messed up a lot of what they said in the past just to make things work this week. The GutCheck Challenge is next week, which will throw my entire schedule off, but Sam Shaw has the look and I am curious to see how he does! The whole Claire/AJ storyline got a huge boost tonight. I didn’t expect her to reveal the evidence already, but I am glad she did as I wouldn’t like them to stretch it out. TNA is doing a real fine job with this whole thing. It went from AJ/Daniels, AJ/Dixie/Daniels/Kazarian, AJ/Daniels/Dixie/Claire/Kazarian, AJ/Daniels, AJ/Dixie/Kazarian/Claire/Daniels, Claire/Daniels/AJ/Kazarian, AJ/Claire. It brought people in and out. The evidence tonight really set the storyline to a new level. I have no idea how AJ is going to try to cover this up or what he is going to say for that matter. I would love to see Dixie come back and see the pictures. I know TNA knows what they are doing. They keep on going (which is good and bad), but I hope the future is just as good as what we seen. I can’t understand how people don’t like this storyline.

Finally, the Aces and Eights look promising and powerful! They attacked everyone you can think of. While Roode could have been behind it, I had a feeling he wouldn’t be. Word on Twitter tonight throughout the show is Luke Gallows is part of the group as well as Chris Masters maybe. Who knows! I remember talking about factions in wrestling about a month ago before Aces and Eights appeared. I said we haven’t seen a big one in TNA for awhile. Well, that changed! It seems like wrestling companies/shows think they need a faction once a year or so. On a side note, I found myself laughing when James Storm called Kurt Angle out to fight. I knew Kurt wasn’t at Florida as he is up here getting ready to be wed. TNA had to tape that footage that showed him backstage. It was a nice transition and they capitalized on Kurt’s wedding by helping get Aces and Eights over. If you want to hear more from me, follow me on Twitter: Click here

  • Steve l

    Yeah youre doing a good job very detailed

    • Alex Barie

      Thanks! Really appreciate it!

  • Topherrulez

    Mike Knox and Luke gallows era has arrived!!!

  • Steve l

    Why would Roode be happy to get disqualified. Do you think its Rink ka king guys crossing over. Or guys fired under Hogan broight back? Or sebody else? Jarrett is involved regardless.

    • Alex Barie

      Could be anyone, but I discussed in my "Alex's Asusmptions" on what people are talking about on who they might be. Whoever they are, they need to have a reason/story for the attacks.

  • http://tnawrestling chris

    Who r aceses to eight

  • CrankyVince

    Both Luke Gallows and Wes Brisco portrayed an attacker before in the Aces and Eights angle. It’ll probably be a way to get Bischoff and/or Jarrett back on TV. Probably some kind of hostile takeover/invasion angle as well.

  • http://yahoo Ronaldo Rodriguez

    No no no you people are dead wrong those aces people are people who got fired of impact wrestling late last year those guys are former wcw stars such as Jeff jarrett and Karen jarrett and Eric bischoff and gunner !

  • Flame.L-DW.Leader

    Alex Barie good job i like your information on these results i didnt read one of them like yours good detailed i see no error good job!!!!!!!!!! Your Article was very juicy if i have to say

    • Alex Barie

      I try to write as detailed as possible for anyone who missed the show and with the whole Directv incident, there are a lot of people missing the show. Also, I like juicy ;)

  • BigMike

    why is Robbie E still in TNA? i saw him Botch at least 2 spots in the match and Jeff and everyone else should not need to carry an enhancement person like him hey at least Santino can make a good story in his matches………….NEXT in the pictures that Claire calls "evidence" u will see that AJ eyes are closed in every one so it will come out that Daniels paid CLaire to set him up and the father is actually Daniels or Kaz. Third …….IDK but I think the person behind this whole aces and 8's thing is Eric Bischoff

  • chelu671

    Aces & 8s attacked people like 3 or 4 times? You’d think TNA would have security around in the Impact Zone. Oh wait, they don’t have any?

    • Mason

      They did have gunner and Murphy but who knows what’s with Murphy cuz he’s gone and gunner too

  • jon harris

    alex u have no idea what your talking about aj and claire storyline sucks it makes no sense what so ever and its boring and they overkill on the aces and eights last night.that storyline is not looking good at all and impact was bad last night period

    • Alex Barie

      I don't understand why you said the AJ and Claire storyline "makes no sense" while I completely understand what is going on. As for the Aces and Eights….we see this happen with every new faction that is born. We seen this from the NWO in the 90s and we seen it with Nexus a couple years ago. These factions do this to get over.

  • Dre

    wow love TNA and their 1.0 ratings no wonder my favorite part was when nexus attacked edge and jericho was happy then tried to shake their hands and got beat up my bad I mean Ace's and 8's beat up Austin Aries and Roode was happy. Also I am so glad the divas are a joke and the Knockouts are favored so much more on TV Like that knockouts match tonight AWSOME wait no knockouts but hey at least they gave their knockouts tag champs some time who are they again Eric Young and ODB. LOLTNA
