Well, D-Lo always used to say "you better recognize." Too bad it took a decade for us to recognize what it was. :smt102

I used to really like D-Lo back in his WWE European Championship Days, he was underrated as fuck,

As someone with incredibly tiny ears, I have a newfound respect for D-Lo's plight.

Has it led you to join the cause of A HIGHER POWER like Aces & Eights?

Me too and I agree with you about him being underrated. D-Lo was a great mid-card superstar and it's really unfortunate that he only held the Intercontinental title once. WWE could have done so much more with him but he really was eclipsed by the rise of so many other superstars at the time.

My wrestling knowledge before 2012 is basically frozen at whatever was going on in WWF No Mercy for the N64 so I liked D-Lo on that game and I like him now.

It is a bit odd to have some guy who hasn't been on TV for ages be revealed as a key member of the invading stable, but if D-Lo is indeed a big player behind the scenes, then it's a cool reveal.

No Mercy is still, hands down, one of the best wrestling video games ever made!

The whole Aces & Eights thing just seems like a totally mismanaged gimmick. It seems like somebody at TNA watched a couple episodes of Sons of Anarchy and thought it would make a good gimmick. What they forgot to do was include a good reason why these guys got together in the first place or even attempt to make the characters in the stable compelling. As it stands right now, they just keep throwing random guys into the mix without anything that even resembles a plan. These guys have been around since June 2012 and the only title they have held is Devon's Television Championship? That doesn't make for a very menacing group. Aces & Eights currently have 8 members, 6 of whom are active wrestlers. Put two of those guys together as an active tag team. Better yet, this is supposed to be an outlaw motorcycle group? Bring back the Freebird Rule and allow them to run roughshod over the tag team division.

I think Aces & Eights would work if they weren't such cowards, they run away as soon as more than 2 wrestlers show up (and that includes cripples like Hulk Hogan and Sting).

It's a shocking comparison when you compare them to The Shield (who are not afraid of anyone and have beaten all the top WWE faces (including Cena).

But most of the guys in Aces & Eights are pretty awesome... All except Wes Brisco (I even like Garrett Bischoff because he's so hateable and he's not that bad in-ring). Devon is good, Mr Anderson is good, Mike Knox is good, DOC is awesome (he wouldn't be friends with CM Punk if otherwise). But the total does not add up to the sum.

I think Aces & Eights need to win Lockdown and reveal a big name as leader so as not to be a fucking joke.

The problem for me is that they don't have any impressive wins under their belt. For the better part of this year I think I can count on one hand the wins they've had.

Yeah, their win record is about the same as 3MB's.

And imagine if WWE treated 3MB as a real force, that's Aces & Eights for ya.

(And I fucking like 3MB)

And that should hardly be the case seeing you've got Knox and DOC on the team.

Jobbing out Brisco and Garrett (what a way to kill the stable by throwing in the least talented but in any major promotion) should've been the approach.

The thing that annoys me about Aces & Eights is that they haven't even bothered giving Mike Knox a name. He was mentioned as 'Mike Knox from WWE' when he was first unmasked, but since then... nada. If you can't even be bothered to rebrand your new guys... what's the point?

They occasionally just say "Knox".
