Velvet Sky, AJ Styles, Kurt Angle, John Cena, and Samoa Joe have all been revealed to be members of the Aces and Eights, but we STILL don't know who is behind it all and why. With Survivor Series in the rear view, there are still about 6 members left to unmask and THIS puts Vince into OVERDRIVE, mandating that NO ONE on the roster is to walk about without a member of the Corporation as insurance.
Team Hell No and Rhodes Scholars are in the ring, demanding for some masks to come out to play. As if on cue, the lights flicker and the spokesman comes over the Titantron.
"Be careful what you wish for. You're biting off more than you can chew because there ARE those who wouldn't care to lose their masks. Bear in mind, though that the days of the Corporation are numbered. You STILL are having problems keeping your house in order....."
As the lights come back on, three objects get tripped over; a ball peen hammer, a large bag of thumb tacks, and a baseball bat.
Triple H, who has been silent up to that point, comes to the ring and makes a challenge. At the December PPV, Team Hell No and Rhodes Scholars will face Aces and Eights in a masks vs. careers match. The match will be Elimination Rules with the sole survivor winning for their team. To make sure that there is NO interference in the finish, this will be held in a Cell.
The night of the match comes and there is a feverish heat to the PPV. We have Velvet Sky vs. Kaitlyn with AJ Lee as the Special Guest Referee on tap first. With a fast count, Velvet Sky takes the win....AJ Lee pulls off the referee stripes to reveal a white t-shirt and a leather patched vest.....she's been behind the orchestration of the Diva's Division.
The final match on the comes and each member of their respective team is introduced. This is where The Corporation takes the upper hand. Vince comes over the Titantron and announces a change to the match. There will be a Special Referee for the match......"Time to play the GAME>>>>>" Triple H comes to the ring in stripes.
The final member of The Corporation is Kane while the last member of Aces and Eights is in battle. In one move, Kane is down, but just as the faction member closes in, Triple H launches a Pedigree and puts Kane's arm over. A fast count and the match is over.
We have the four in ring being forced to unmask......
The final member unmasked in the night is Sting
This only leaves the leader to reveal and THAT comes with the Royal Rumble. The day after the December PPV, Vince begins the show bragging about how he's outwitted the plans of The Aces and Eights for good.
"I wouldn't count my chickens before they've hatched, Vince," the voice comes from Sting.
"You still don't know what the endgame is, but I'll save some time for you. You see, 20 years ago, you tried to kill the voice of your competition, creating a monopoly where only YOU profit from the blood, sweat and tears of those who do your bidding. The problem is, there are those who quite simply refuse to trust you and you've given them no reason to. You insult the intelligence of the fans by dumbing down everything and expecting it to be alright. But it's NOT alright, Vince. These fans deserve more than what you've spoon feeding them. But there IS a way you can still salvage something of this.....
In two weeks, the leader of this club is issuing a challenge to YOU. You win this challenge, we leave and you never have to worry about the invasion again, but if HE wins, things around here are going to change. The ball's in your court....."
