When asked about why Aces and Eights died down, Devon mentioned that a big reason for their demise was because the creator of the stable was no longer allowed to provide feedback in the creative department. While he refused to mention the name of the person that came up with the idea, the longstanding belief was that it was Eric Bischoff. Not coincidentally, TNA removed Bischoff from the creative department around that point in time.
