Pro Wrestling Sheet says TNA have been heavily pursuing Gallows and Anderson. They've offered deals that would let them work New Japan

I saw some clip from Impact where D'Lo getting harrassed by Reno Scum and then teased talking to someone and saying he wanted to "get the band back together" with an Aces & Eights vest in the background. I was unsure what that could be teasing but I guess Doc would be it.

Isn't this the same as way back when they first got Bennett and Maria and put out there that they could still work NJPW? Like, the issue is not Impact disallowing them to work there, it's that New Japan doesn't want their talent to work Impact.

This was true before but after Anthem bought the TV channel NJPW were on in the States & got them removed from it I can't imagine the feelings are somehow lessened than when it was just "holy poo poo we sent so many great guys to this company & they didn't use any of them well" & all the other stuff, especially around Okada.

Teasing Doc but it's actually Garrett Bischoff would be the best and most likely way this will end

That would crack me up if they teased Gallows and Anderson and ended up with Bischoff and Brisco.

I don't think he is? He appeared to be a member of the production staff and Reno Scum were just harassing him. So I was assuming the idea is he'd bring in Gallows and Anderson to go fight them.

He was actually production back the first time he was in Aces & Eights. Like the storyline was he was their inside guy who helped get Brisco and Bischoff contracts or something. I think he wrestled here or there but he was basically their nWo/Bischoff.

That makes more sense

Per Cagematch, D'Lo last wrestled in October, teaming with Fallah Baah against "Cousin Jake" (who I thought was noted model citizen Jake Crist but is actually Jake Something, who I totally forgot they signed) and "Cody Deaner," which I'm still not sure is a real person.

Cody Deaner was a comedy talent in the company in the late-00s that was paired with ODB. They randomly brought him back last year and paired him with Jake Something as brothers, and it actually...has been decent?

Yeah, they seem like a perfectly serviceable tag team.

The whole division seems like perfectly serviceable tag teams but the loss of LAX and Lucha Bros killed them for headliners.

Was Parrow in Aces and Eights?

E: I guess they did some extra work for them or something? Parrow would be a decent pickup for the company, I don't know who this other guy is.

Cody Deaner was actually pretty fun his first time around

Germansimp
May 28, 2013




He got into the company in a very bad way with that stupid "One Night with ODB" angle that was about someone winning a chance to spend, well, a one night stand with ODB. But over time the duo of Deaner and ODB actually became very entertaining.

Plus there's always that insane bump to the outside in his match against Doug Williams, which Deaner somehow managed to walk away from without any serious injury.

Only TNA would bring back Gallows & Anderson who have absolutely none of the shine they had before their WWE run, in order to bring back a stable whose existence dragged on far too long even for TNA.

If they would leave the Aces & 8s dead and just bring Gallows and Anderson that'd be fine.

Cody Deaner is one of those fake names that get used when someone refuses to let their name be used on something, like Alan Smithee.

To be honest, putting aside opinions about individual companies I think they're better off in Impact than AEW. I like them but I think they would have been lost in the shuffle in AEW's crowded tag division and either would taken away from FTR's debut or been overshadowed. Meanwhile Impact's tag division really needs a kick in the rear end and while I don't think they're quite it they should immediately have a top spot. Even as Aces & Eights (which I didn't totally hate).

I just think WWE really cooled them off badly and the whole Bullet Club/Elite world has moved so far past them that without someone like AJ or Finn they're kinda just a slightly older decent tag team.

Current card for Slammiversary (happening July 18)

Jordynne Grace defends the Knockouts title against Deonna Purrazzo
Rosemary, Nevaeh, Su Yung, Kiera Hogan, Taya Valkyrie, Kylie Rae, Tasha Steelz, Alisha Edwards, Jessicka Havok and Kimber Lee in a gauntlet match for #1 contendership to the Knockouts title
Willie Mack defends the X title against Chris Bey

Nobody knows what's up with the world title situation now that the five-way match is obviously not happening with Tessa and Elgin both fired. Maybe they have the triple threat with the remaining people planned to be in it (Ace Austin, Eddie Edwards and Trey Miguel) for the vacant belt; maybe they put in also-abuser Moose for a fourway since he's kinda still TNA champ; maybe they fire him too, vacate that too, and have a triple threat for both belts; who knows

ed: All I know is the Knockouts division is pretty stacked
