After watching Impact regularly again since they've gone live, I can't help but be extremely entertained by the Aces & 8's story. However, am I the only one who expects it to be Samoa Joe? And if it's Joe, will they be able to tell the whole back-story to Joe/Aries?
I mean, for us ROH nuts, we all know the story of Joe reigning supreme, Aries upsetting him and "shocking the world" and then going on to form a super group and dominate ROH for the next couple years. Does this not seem like the continuation of the story/reversing the roles? Aries wins the title, he is the man right now, only to have Joe upset him and take the title at Bound For Glory and follow it up by forming his own super group with the Aces & 8's?
Am I giving the booking team at TNA too much credit for the back-story to this? Or is it just coincidental that the pieces are falling into place to be an awesome "re-boot" to the Joe/Aries saga? Or am I the only person who remembers their back-story at all?
I've been saying that Joe would be a good payoff to the angle, especially if it gives us another round of Joe-Aries in the main event. I also think that Joseph Park developing a third personality as a coping mechanism would be interesting. Maybe they'll combine into SAMOA JOSEPH PARK, ESQ?! Park HAS been very conspicuous by his absence ever since the Bully Ray storyline ended.
