Bubba Ray new TNA champion, revealed as President of Aces & 8s


Last night at the Lockdown pay-per-view, Bully Ray managed to get his first major singles title in his 22 year career, defeating Jeff Hardy in the main event and revealing himself as the President of Aces & 8s.

Aces & 8s interfered in the main event and Ray and his opponent and reigning champion Jeff Hardy fought them off before Ray’s former tag team partner – Devon – gave Ray a hammer and smashed Hardy with it for the pinfall.

After the match was over, Ray announced that he was the President of Aces & 8s and used Hulk Hogan and his daughter Brooke all along.

While Ray has won numerous tag team titles with Devon over the years – 15 in total – this was his first major singles title win. The only other singles title he won before was the WWE Hardcore title which he won 10 times.
