On the February 21 edition of Impact, after listening to Brooke plea, Hulk Hogan named Bully the number one contender for the TNA World Heavyweight Championship at Lockdown. at this event, Bully Ray would turn his back on Brooke and TNA by revealing himself as the President of Aces & Eights. On the following episode of Impact, Bully Ray touted the fact that everyone bought into his deceptive act the whole time to earn the trust of Sting, Hulk Hogan and Brooke as a way to get a chance to capture the TNA World title. Brooke remains trying to get a divorce from her husband, though he claims he still loves her.

On August 16, 2013 it was reported that Hogan had been released.
