Christian York Headed To TNA – Details

As announced on Thursday’s episode of iMPACT! Wrestling, 35-year-old journeyman wrestler Christian York will compete on “Gut Check” on next week’s show.

York competed on the promotion’s inaugural pay-per-view event in 2002, teaming with Joey Mathews against Bo Dupp and Stan Dupp, but was unable to secure a full-time position with the organization, nor WWE. Now after 16 years in wrestling, he feels this is his last chance to make it in the big time.

    He looks like the stunt double for "the Wrestler"

    He should get a contract. He knows what its like in the big league! He was in TNA's first ever PPV. Give this guy the last chance

    I wonder if they’ll ever have someone win their gut check match.

      im guessing they will at some point. but if it was done kind of random so like say christian york faces kenny king. and york wins. it makes whoever the tna talent they use as weak.

      joey ryan was the first gutcheck storyline really. so as they've ran that now. id say they will move on to someone winning their gutcheck match and some sort of rivalry will be created.

    I've known of him for years and he seems like a solid indy wrestler as from the last time I saw his Facebook, he had like 8 titles at once in different promotions so obviously people see something in him. He isn't very old, that due to the fact that he started in ECW so young he was able to get his feet wet early. Adding to that, he seems to be in great shape actually.

    • Imdiym says:

      Yeah, I used to work with him when he wrestled for VCW. Very underrated. Good wrestler, was very big when he was teaming with Joey Matthews. I hope he gets the contract. I think he would be better suited in a tag team though.

      It would be interesting to see Joey Ryan put together a stable of Gut check wrestlers, York being the first addition.

  5. Roid Master says:

    I remember that first pay per view… it was God awful, but at least it wasn't run by a McMahon. Whether you like the creative choices of the company had made, they have improved by leaps and bounds from the days of Puppet the midget pounding it in the trashcan.

  6. rawuncutnxrated says:

    He looks like Ed Leslie. York better watch his back, the Huckster might try to get'em from the back side.

  7. Stunner says:

    Perfect Gut Check York vs Ryan ! York wins MM comes in an lays him out cold! Welcome to the Big League!

  8. Herr_Odditus says:

    Is Gut Check a legit competition, or are the outcomes already decided? Every single contestant has been hired except two, and of those two one of them is Joey Ryan who ended up being hired anyway. If they know if they are going to hire them anyway why not just do it instead of wasting precious air time on a segment which could be spent on something else?

  9. Leg Drop Jobber says:

    Christian York is amazing, as was his former partner-Joey Matthews. Both were trained by the Hardy's. Had ECW state open a while longer, these two could have been big stars.
