Aces & Eights were good as a dominant stable, just after Bully Ray revealed he was the President, but then TNA started removing everyone that was interesting from the group. DOC, Devon, D'Lo, even Mr Anderson, who I like more than most.

Now that it's down to like, 3 people, and one of those 3 is Bischoff, it's terrible.

Chris Hero is done with WWE. He might bring a much needed spark to ROH if he returned there.

I would still say Ace and Eights are worse then most of those above. At least most of those you mentioned had established big name players. A&E had Devon and Bubba which are legit wrestling stars, the rest of A&E were nothing but scrubs, has beens, and never was's.

Generation Next was, at the time, a group "of scrubs and never was's" and ended up being the most impactful faction in the history of ROH.

I would say it has more to do with how the faction is treated and presented, vs who is actually in it.

West Texas Rednecks were has-beens (Hennig and B. Windham in the final stages of their careers) and never was's (Bobby Duncum Jr. and Kendell Windham) and they were pretty great.

Yeah, just like the NWO it was cloned from. Big names surrounded by Hugh Morrises.

A&E is no ThreeCount.

A&E is in no way worse than the dreaded faction of ICP & The Great Muta.

I just saw. :-( :-( :-(

And one of his first indie dates is PWG like when Colt Cabana and Bryan Danielson were fired. :D

I don't think you can compare Aces and Eights with these groups, they were the main guys for months. That and the fact that they have total lameos is why they're worse.

But you can have total lameos and still be presented as a strong faction. Proportionately speaking, the nWo probably had a similar big-star to non-star ratio, and they were badass before they petered out also. I'm not saying A&E is great or anything, but to say they're the worst? When the Oddities or Los Boriquas or pre-revamped Nation of Domination with Savio, Crush, and PG13 are right there?

No, far from it. A&E was booked pretty well for awhile, a miracle considering TNA and all, and like anything in TNA they just went to shit.

As I said, Aces & Eights were great up until Slammiversary, as after that they started losing members at a rapid clip.

I actually think the story of Bully's hubris and egotism destroying his own stable is a good one, but it hasn't been handled well. They probably should have just actually broken them up this week, rather than fake us out.

For those of you who may care about them, the Young Bucks (Generation Me when they were in TNA) became the new IWGP Jr Heavyweight Tag-Team Champions today in New Japan Pro Wrestling. They beat Taka Michinoku and Taichi for the titles.
