• Former TNA Star Says The Shield Got Their Gimmick From Top TNA Stable
During a recent appearance on Pancakes and Powerslams Show, former TNA wrestler Wes Brisco talked about top TNA stable storyline of Aces & Eights coming to end, who did The Shield get their gimmick from & more.
Below are the highlights:
On why Aces & Eights ended:
“What happened was, they hired two new writers. The other writers got fired, and they hired a bunch of new people and the new people in charge didn’t want any script or anything to do with the other writers. So those in control scratched everything. That’s why it kinda just ended.”
On The Shield getting their gimmick from Aces & Eights:
“All those guys that we were together with, we stuck together, we hung out together, we were together. I mean, we took this seriously. We wanted to be very successful. We wanted to treat it like it was our baby, our opportunity to set an example and create something totally different.
Because if you look at it, that’s what started The Shield because of us. If you really look at it, we started before The Shield even came through the crowd, we had the mask on. Basically, they did the exact same thing.”

The character of Adonis Creed reflects this generation, and I believe it is important to have a director who is part of it , that is why I think we are Lucky to have Stephen Caple ,Jr A wonderful new talent take over The directorial chores and make the story as relatable as possible… He and Michael B Jordan will deliver a knockout!u
