Who are the Aces & Eights?
There’s a new group forming inside TNA Wrestling called Aces & Eights, and for the past three weeks they have been wrecking havoc with TNA champion Austin Aries and Bobby Roode being their latest victims.
On IMPACT this week, the group attacked Aries as Roode stood in the corner watching the beat down. After Aces & Eights were done with Aries, Roode offered his hand however the handshake wasn’t something the group was looking for and they proceeded to attack Roode as well. Sting and Hulk Hogan were their first victims.
The group sporting hoodies and masks have still not made their identities public however there are several wrestlers who have already posed as part of the gang. Former WWE Superstar Luke Gallows has been one of them as well as Mike Knox from the WWE’s version of ECW. TNA agent D’Lo Brown has also played a part in the gang although he won’t likely be one of the final members of the group when they are revealed.
Aces & Eights is two-pair poker hand called Dead Man’s Hand in the card game. The group has a Twitter account which you can follow @TheAcesAnd8s.
