TNA Gut Check expands starting on Thursday’s IMPACT WRESTLING
In the Spring of 2012IMPACT WRESTLING brought the TNA Gut Check to Spike TV! This competition sees an aspiring wrestler got a chance to tell his story, have a match and be evaluated with the ultimate goal of earning an IMPACT WRESTLING contract! Alex Silva, Taeler Hendrix, Sam Shaw, Wes Brisco and Christian York have all passed their Gut Checks to earn a spot on the roster. Now, the competition is getting even bigger!
Previously, the TNA Gut Check contestant would wrestle a member of the IMPACT WRESTLING roster in an attempt to impress the judges! Starting on Thursday’s broadcast, TWO Gut Check contestants will compete head-to-head. They will tell their story and face off against each other in the Gut Check match! The judging panel (Sr. VP of Talent Relations Bruce Prichard, Sr. Director of Talent Relations Al Snow, and former Two-Time World Champion Taz) will evaluate both wrestlers performance and give their final verdict on the January 17 IMPACT broadcast.
Tune in Thursday night to find out who these two new TNA Gut Check contestants are and follow their journey!
JAY BRADLEY VS BRIAN CAGE ? We can only hope that this is what we will be getting!!!!!

Lucha Underground on Unimas is behind Impact. As noted before, New Japan numbers head-to-head with Impact are unknown. The station that does have ways to measure viewership internally and were surprised at how well the shows have done.
