As seen at the end of Sunday night’s TNA Lockdown pay-per-view, Bully Ray turned heel and joined the Aces and 8’s. In the process of turning heel, Ray also captured the TNA World Title from Jeff Hardy. Following the match, Bully Ray grabbed a microphone and trashed the crowd as well as Hulk and Brooke Hogan, who were both at ringside. During the promo, fans threw tons of trash and beer bottles at Bully Ray and the Aces and 8’s members.
Jeff Hardy and Bully Ray both take their time getting to their feet. Hulk Hogan is shown walking his way down to the ring on crutches with Brooke in tow. Hogan walks his way around the ring and shouts words of encouragement to Ray. He tells Bully to get up and not stop. More members of Aces and 8′s make their way out as all the members begin to surround the cage and make their way inside. Ray and Hardy get back to back. Devon reaches in his pants and pulls out a hammer, tossing it to Ray. Ray hits Hardy in the back of the head. Hogan is completely shocked, screaming out ‘NO’. Devon and Ray celebrate and Ray pins Hardy for the three count.
Brooke cries and Hogan continues to look shocked as Ray celebrates with Aces and 8′s and yells at the referee to raise his hands. Ray yells at Brooke and says she’s nothing to him. He calls Hogan an old man, and a piece of crap, and tells him to do something. Ray tells Brooke to shut her mouth as Hogan calls him a dead man.
Ray has a mic and he says that’s right. He tells Devon to “let that stupid bitch cry”. He calls out Hogan, telling him that he used him. He tells Brooke he screwed her. Hogan and Brooke go nuts, and fans begin to litter the ring with bottles and garbage. Ray says he fooled every single one of the fans and screwed them all. The music hits and Taz says Aces and 8′s hold all the cards. Ray says that he’s the president of the Aces and 8′s and he’s now the TNA World Heavyweight Champion.
Ray and the rest of Aces and 8′s continue to antagonize the crowd while they throw garbage as the PPV fades to black.
