To be fair. Kenny King debuted as part of the X-Division tournament so had TNA not decided to put the World Title on Aries then he would have probably debuted through Gutcheck. Ryan had a storyline mapped out for him and Gutcheck facilitated it and York's story was tailor-made for Gutcheck.

Even though York and Ryan didn't necessarily need Gutcheck, being a part of it hasn't done them any harm. And Kenny King re-debuting has
made sense as well. I think TNA has done a good job with it.

Re: I'm marking out!

Is bradley vs the machine confirmed? I want both signed.



The reason why we don't get fresh ideas and promotions rising in American Pro Wrestling is because the majority of the community is happy with the same old shit and will reject any chance of change. There is a risk in doing new things, 9 times out of 10, it leads to 50+ pages of bitching and moaning. While business gets turned into a dictatorship and more and more out of touch. Support the indies, support New Pro Wrestling.

It's confirmed. It's all over twitter and Impact Wrestling actually retweeted them.

I guess wrestlers find it worth it though.

Re: TNA Gut Check expands starting on Thursday’s IMPACT WRESTLING

cool this is confirmed then. Big Cage fan and Bradley seems cool. Definitely better than any gut check contestant not called Joey Ryan


also how is Cage called mr "get your shit in" yet nobody has made a joke about him stealing kurt angles gimmick yet?

The jokes could write themselves also. Having a fat guy in a t-shirt doing a segment called "Gut Check".

Putting two indy wrestlers fighting for a contract might just be the improvement Gut Check needed. Congrats to TNA for this!

But i'm afraid this means Jay Bradley vs Brian Cage...I'm crossing my fingers for this match to end like UFC's Forrest Griffin vs. Stephan Bonnar - both man get a contract!

Just give cage and bradley enough time for an epic fight!
Same here. Both guys are worth keeping.

Seen it before. When Steen and Joe were more mobile and weren't fat and broken down.
