Aces & Eights Aces & Eights

Devon made a surprise return to TNA yesterday at the Bound For Glory pay-per-view, aiding the Aces & Eights defeating the team of Sting and Bully Ray to gain access to the IMPACT Zone.

The former TNA Television champion quit the company after negotiations between the two parties over a new contract fell through. Devon eventually walked out still as the TV champion and a new champ was crowned on the September 27 edition of IMPACT Wrestling. At that time, TNA made a small statement on its website saying that the company hoped that Devon would return for one more match to defend the title however their negotiations reached an impasse after a month full of meetings.

Hulk Hogan expressed his disappointment on Twitter over the whole thing and hoped that Devon would eventually return, praising him as one of the best people in the TNA locker room. Devon then posted a photo of himself wearing a WWE RAW t-shirt, fueling speculations that he might jump ship to WWE.

The former ECW, WWE, and TNA tag team title holder appeared under a mask during the show yesterday and put his former tag team partner through a table with a spinebuster. He was then unmasked by Hulk Hogan who moments earlier came out to help clear the ring.
