Report: The End Of TNA Gutcheck?

Danny Davis has told people that he will not be coming to iMPACT! as part of Gut Check any more.

With Bruce Prichard gone, and the recent cutbacks, the feeling is that the TNA Gutcheck may be done.

    I think they should return it to how it started off, a behind the scenes thing. If someone gets signed as a result of it all well and good, but when they made it a monthly TV thing and were seen to be hiring all this new talent and then releasing them it totally killed it.

    good they kept messing with gut check and how it was ran too much anyways. if you want to sign people just sign them

      from what ppl have said on gutcheck. the idea was to pull back the curtain and show fans how they find talent and how they sign them. it could with being a part of a 2nd show really.

      the starting idea was good. but they could always improve it little bits about it. should have had the promo seg before and after the match imo instead of on the following show.

    Gut check was becoming ridiculous so I wont be too upset if its gone.

    I thought Gutcheck was ridiculous especially how they were 'signing' all these wrestlers knowing that few will be used since they have a full roster where some are having trouble getting TV time.

    I dont think it was that bad of an idea but they just gave the contract to pretty much everyone then they get released and we never really got to see them

    Shame. Gutcheck was one of the things that got me excited for iMPACT.

    Gutcheck itself was a cool & novel idea. The problem is the missteps:

    1) They hired virtually everyone.

    2) They never gave the wrestlers they didn't bring on constructive criticism (i.e. what they needed to perform). The in-ring segments were too rushed. They should have allotted a few more minutes and taught the wrestlers (and fans) a few things. At the very least, post a video critique on Youtube or something and promote it on the show.

    3) They needed to give the judges the authority to actually hire the people. Instead it was pre-determined when they came to the ring. It was phony and we all knew it.

    4) Can we all say "Alex Silva". True, Ric Flair should have never changed his mind. Don't get me started on that. But it was worse when TNA held it against him. Remember – he was a judge (see #3). Give him the ability to say "yes".

    5) They incorporated it into a story line. HORRIBLE IDEA! Seriously, the Wes Brisco thing compromised any remaining integrity it had at that point.

      I'm not surprised, I liked gut check but after the release of almost every gut check winner I suspected it would be gone soon. Hopefully it returns but after this Tito Ortiz shit storm calms downs.

    The concept of Gutcheck was a great

    Idea but all the issues they had like

    Losing judge after judge (flair & Prichard)

    Rejecting Taz since he’s with Aces & Eights

    and the dropping 90% of the gutcheckers

    Last tile I looked it was Jay Bradley & Lady

    T’aid as the only knes left it was going

    Down hill fast better to drop it now

    Then to destroy it even more than what

    They did to it

    TNA never seems to understand its fan base. By doing this fans are hating TNA. GutCheck created zero stars.
