Furthering the ongoing Aces & Eights storyline, TNA Wrestling announced Saturday afternoon on its official website that they have regained control of their online accounts.
The company had stated Friday, "During Thursday's IMPACT WRESTLING broadcast on SpikeTV from Chicago, someone affiliated with The Aces and Eights gained access to our secure online network at TNA Headquarters in Nashville, Tennessee. As a result, the Aces conducted a hostile takeover of our Website and Social Media. On Friday night, our Information Technology (IT) personnel regained control of our website. An update on our Social Media will be coming soon. Our Security Department is investigating the situation. We apologize to our fans for any inconvenience this may have caused."
Prior to TNA "regaining" control of its Twitter account, it was revealed by Aces and Eights that organization president Bully Ray will explain how he orchestrated "the greatest con in history" this Thursday on iMPACT! Wrestling.
Their message states, "Dear TNA brass: Your little overpaid nerds may have gotten http://impactwrestling.com back - but we still have your twittah.
"Our President @REALBully5150 will be on Impact next week and tell the whole 9 months story on how he pulled of the greatest con in history!
"We're talking about a step by step video look at @REALBully5150 genius for those who questioned the Aces and 8s plan!
"Yes... Next Thursday. @TheAcesAnd8s President @REALBully5150 will host a in-depth video look on how he fooled EVERYONE!"
Bully Ray is playing up the storyline on Twitter. He wrote to fellow member Devon, "Bro still LMFAO about how WE fooled them all. The Greatest Tag Team pulled off the Greatest con in wrestling history. #3D."
Ray then taunted Brooke Hogan, writing, "Hey Hunny Bunny...why wont ya return my calls. Are you mad at me...LOL. xoxo Bully, PRES A's n 8's."
We posted the following earlier here on the website:
Here are some TNA updates from Twitter. Dixie Carter has "fired" D Lo Brown due to his association with the Aces and 8s. In return, Brown has teased a return to the ring. Also, TNA's official Twitter has posted an update on their "hacked" website…
Dixie Carter: This "smart" move of yours has cost you your job. Congrats. RT @dlobrown75: Good morning to all of @TheAcesAnd8s supporters out there.
D-Lo Brown: Now that I don't have to worry about those damn office responsibles. Maybe it time I focus on restarting my previous career. #FoodForThought
