Suddenly, a random man entered the ring with his face exposed. The random man put a cover over his face, then popped Aries in the head with an illegal object. The man left as Ray chased him away. Ray shouted, "flapjack," as Aries remained KO'ed ringside. There was a commotion off-camera as the fight apparently continued ringside, but the camera stayed in the ring. The scattershot filming of this segment concluded with Aries KO'ed in the ring as Ray sold concern, Sting paced around, Storm paced around, and Hogan remained standing ringside.
FINAL THOUGHTS: Broken record time. Another good final hour of Impact hurt by the latest non-development in this Aces & Eights deal that has dragged on too long without a real development. TNA has to identify someone from this group that the audience can identify or relate to. Pro wrestling is about compelling stars fighting over an issue fans can invest in and care about, which is what Angle vs. Hardy was all about. Aries fighting a faceless person with no connection to the audience made for bad television, then another fake brawl breaking out nearly turned this into unintentional comedy time.
