Wow RIP to Bearer. My favorite manager of all time. His facial expressions were absolute gold

One thing though, I pray to god WWE doesn't try to somehow work this into the CM Punk/Undertaker feud for cheap heat. One would assume they'd have more respect for Paul than that, but you never quite wanna give Vince too much credit

Also, Mae Young

See, I was a little disappointed with this segment. They seemed a little too complimentary of each other for my taste. I want there to be some real bad blood if they are going to be heading Wrestlemania.

To be perfectly honest, I'm a little more psyched for HHH vs Lesner and Punk vs Taker.

But I really hope this means that Cena will turn heel with some sort of screwing of Rock at the match. Just ready for it to happen. He was getting booed in Buffalo anyways.

And yes... Mae Young

I don't think Cena will turn heel this WM. He just can't unless there is a perfect setup for him to do so.

Heel Cena = turning away from kids = kids not buying Cena merchandises = WWE losing money

Completely understand that point about Cena not turning heel for kids sake, but at some point, you can't let that dictate the direction of the show. I mean, maybe he won't turn heel, but a situation of him hiring the Shield to screw the Rock out of the championship would be far more entertaining to me then the two of them exchanging pleasantries on how much they respect one another. I mean, didn't we see this same thing last year? It just doesn't feel like a real good rivalry because there really isn't any bad blood.

I sorta feel like Cena talking about "doing whatever it takes" to win could be a hint at something bigger. Maybe, maybe not, but I guess at least it's got me guessing and entertained.

Heel Cena = turning away from kids = kids not buying Cena merchandises = WWE losing money

Because the NWO had so much trouble selling merchandise huh?

"Cool" heels sell, and kids don't stay kids forever, eventually these 10 year old will become 14 year olds and realize that Cena's character is wack and corny as hell.

DX started off as heels, NWO were always heels but people WANTED to see them, which generated GOBBS of money.

The things people claim will happen if Cena turns heel (less merchandise, kids etc etc) were all the same things people were saying would happen if WCW turned Hogan heel..

And Hogans heel turn almost put WWE out of business.. Cena turns heel and eventually the adult viewers will find cena more tolerable and eventually if it's done right Cena could have an amazing heel run which would allow plenty of oppurtunities for younger superstars to be put over by Cena, thus creating the next mega star.

Kids don't buy merchandise, their parents do. Older fans will still buy Cena gear if he turns heel and pulls it off effectively, and Kids under 10 usually find "cool" what their parents find cool as well.

There is no financial concern with turning Cena heel.

That was actually pretty cool. Of course TNA's gonna try to play it up to be bigger than it is and they'll probably compare it to Hogan joining the NWO. The fans throwing trash into the ring was a lot like the NWO thing...but then I read this and it took away a little bit of the coolness factor

- TNA had a few fans planted in the crowd at Lockdown to begin throwing trash at Aces & Eights after Bully Ray's heel turn. The idea was that the rest of the crowd would catch on and throw trash as well - which they did.

I don't watch wrestling anymore, but I read somewhere that they haven't revealed who the leader of Aces and Eights is yet. Is that true? Which would lead me to believe that it could very well be Hogan.

I follow Hogan on Twitter and he seems pretty pissed at Bully, but this could all be a ruse.

I somehow visited TNA website, and it turned out to be "taken over" by A's & 8's.

Aces really shoulda just left the masks on. They were much easier to book as intimidating before we found out they were the Dudley Boyz, Ken Kennedy, Mike Knox, Festus, D'Lo Brown and Tazz

Despite the lack of wrestling, Impact was pretty good last night. Aries/Sting was awesome and Aces and Eights is back to being interesting. I wonder who will be TNA's savior to help take them down. Hopefully some more people join Aces and Eights though.

I'd like to see The Pope come back and be pushed.
