Ex-Gut Check Contestant Behind ‘#August1Warning’?

Ex-Gut Check Contestant Behind ‘#August1Warning’?

The official YouTube account of TNA Wrestling posted a video on Friday featuring a mysterious individual delivering a warning (officially titled “#August1Warning”) for next Thursday’s iMPACT! Wrestling in Wichita Falls, Texas, where he cryptically revealed that he has a problem which needs to be solved. The individual in question could be “Scrap Iron” Adam Pearce, who competed in a “Gut Check” match in April—he won the bout but was not signed to a contract. A few hours after the video was posted, the acclaimed independent wrestler hinted through Twitter at something occurring on August 1.

“By the way, how many days til #August1?” he wrote. It’s possible he’s just working the ‘net and has something else planned for August 1st. We shall see.

    Could be or it could be D.O.C, hope it's one of them, but I prefer it's D.O.C b/c the way he left was just shameful and next to Bully one he's of best A&8's members.

    Pearce was good @ gutcheck and decent on the mic, kind of remnded me of Austin with his face gestures

      Oddly enough, I said the same thing when I first saw him on TV.

      I hope that it is Pearce, but I am mixed on these signals. If he is the actual August 1st threat, he is a jerk for the prematurity of his tweet. If he isn't, then well played.

    Its not Adam pearce. I doubt TNA would start this mystery man thing then have the guy give it away. Its probably a swerve to get everybody thinking its Pearce when its actually someone else.

    At least i hope thats what they’re doing.

    • jflegler says:

      I hope that is what they are doing too. As much as I want them to sign Pearce, the giveaway would aggravate me.

    Abyss’s cousin!

    JK probably it’s that Adam Pierce

  5. RavenNevermore says:

    I wish it was pierce. But if its Doc I would not mind. I liked the name outlaw Isiah Cash in Ring Ka King. If its him hope he uses that name.

    I hope it's not just another of the many hyped storylines which turn horribly flat after the secrets revealed..

    It’s a terrorist!

    Why didn't this air on TV?

    Watching it again, just noticed the head shape and ear match Goldberg although he apparently despises TNA so it unlikely especially with the lack of neck muscle

    It could be both DOC and Adam Pearce as a tag team who goes through all of the tag teams who are left.

  11. jflegler says:

    I will not get my hopes up for a big signing again.

    There is no way that it is Batista or Goldberg. The August warning would have been hyped much much much more than one YouTube video a week before the Impact. If it is one of them, poor advertising.

    More than likely, it is Hankinson, Pearce, Holly, or Eric Bischoff.

    I hate to assume, but with Pearce's "leak" I think that it is Bischoff under the guise of Pearce – only for Pearce to come at a later date under the management of Bischoff (that is how I would write it with what TNA has already laid out for us).
