Segment 4: Aces & Eights Club Vote
Positives: Knux and Bischoff both did solid promo work throughout this show. They actually did a convincing job of lulling Anderson (and the crowd) into a false sense of security with their resignations.
As dead as Aces & Eights has been for months, TNA is actually doing a good job making this match between Anderson and Bully Ray seem like it means something.
Negatives: That swerve was so swervy it made me wonder if TNA had rehired Vince Russo.
Segment Score: +0
Segment 5: Ethan Carter III vs. Dewey Barnes
Positives: They kept it short, and the jobber didn’t get a ridiculous stretch of sustained offense this time.
Negatives: It’s one thing to be a jobber, it’s another thing to look completely incapable of winning a single match ever. It doesn’t raise ECIII’s profile at all for him to keep wrestling the same two stiffs.
