    • bik100 says:

      you have to remember that was right at the start of the second hour.

    • rawuncutnxrated says:

      It's what the people want. Not crappy Taz and his even crappier heel turn. Who gives two deuces what Taz is doing or why he is a heel or if he's a face. Not one person cared.

    yep…..things are getting interesting…..I want BEER MONEY back though….not the current tag team with aries and rude.

    • Tiffanydude says:

      Well The greatest men in Wrestling haven't been shown on TV together as a Team yet so you can't get sick of something that hasn't technically started and besides if TNA can put all of thought and work on this team they could be better than Beer Money.

    • ariesstormjoe says:

      aries and roode havent been together really yet. the odd tag team match. i think they provide good comical value in backstage segs/promos.

      beer money were a great tag team but storyline wise they should be separated now at the least for a few years.

    • kaecyus says:

      Try this: Aces and Eights are running riot. And I mean having the run of the place, and put it down to one tag team match at Bound for Glory, as they've shoo'd Dixie Carter off, had Hogan forced to take more surgery after a hammer blow to the back, and Sting taken out once more with the same hammer.

      I reckon Storm would be in for protecting the company he started with, and Roode would be enticed with the world title shot they would both get against Jeff Hardy in a Three Way Dance. The Promo on the Impact afterwards?

      "I did it for me. Not because I care about this company, or Dixie Carter. I did it to protect the TNA World Heavyweight title. /My/ TNA World Heavyweight title. And nobody… not Aces and Eights, Eric Bischoff (ask me how I know the leader is him, I dare you), Devon, James Storm, Jeff Hardy… /nobody/ is going to get between me and the /real/ world title. Jeff, you can keep that little etch-a-sketch-come-spirograph personal belt. It meant nothing, it means nothing. Now the Reign of Roode begins, and it's all about /me/!"

  3. UCEAD11 says:

    Nah…not sick of them….Love them both as individuals but prefer beer money over any past or current tag teams. They were awesome. Like I said in another comment, these are the best wrestlers in the industry.

    • Dirk1n says:

      Roode and Aries are only together because it keeps them away from the world title picture, they won't be a long term tag team.

  4. JoeWrestling says:

    So the same rating as last year when Russo was there with this below lineup. Obviously Russo wasn't ruining the ratings. The only difference is now an entire roster of A&8 guys have to be paid.
    Velvet Sky vs Tara vs Mickie James
    Alex Shelley vs Zema Ion
    Angelina Love and Winter vs Eric Young and ODB
    Matt Morgan vs Samoa Joe
    James Storm and Jeff Hardy vs Robert Roode and Bully Ray; Tables match

  5. DJBIGCG says:

    Good for tna getting a 1.17

  6. piro4351 says:

    personally..i love roode and aries together..had the funniest far..

  7. Real Deal Heel says:

    That's good stuff with the ratings. With football winding down it might set TNA ratings records in these cold winter months.

    • rawuncutnxrated says:

      It won't. People like you have been saying this same crap for years. 7-8 years now & it just isn't going to happen.

  8. rawuncutnxrated says:

    Get a life.
