On this past week’s Impact, TNA compiled videos of Bully Ray explaining the entire Aces & Eights storyline and Ray’s heel turn. Not only were these videos terrifically produced but they did something that wrestling doesn’t do in today’s era… they EXPLAINED EVERYTHING! Not only did they explain everything but they showed you visual proof of the little nuances, sleight of hand and long-term booking that went into everything that was paid off at Bully Ray’s heel turn at Lockdown. TNA did exactly what we’ve all been asking for, for the last couple of years and they did it well.
