    Chase Stevens? One half of TNA original tag team The Naturals?

      It seems wierd that TNA doesn't just let their former talent back into the fold like every other wrestling company does. I mean, with Stevens for instance, guys who have been in TNA already should not have to do Gutcheck as it's making them seem like newcomers when they were originals to TNA. York is perhaps an exception since he only had one match, but if Stevens returned, it'd have to be with his partner on that note. But in ending, I wouldn't want to see a guy like say, Monty Brown have to go through Gutcheck just to get back into TNA. TNA hasn't done a 'return' in years of a star from years of old, aside from Wildcat.

        I agree! When I first saw his name on the bracket, I was like, "wtf?? why dont they just hire the guy and let him return. The fans would love it!"

    not all of the names fans can vote on want to even be part of the gut check. luke hawks posted on his facebook that he doesnt want fans to vote for him he is on under his real name like most guys on the lists. he got contacted by them ignored them at first then said he was not interested, yet still listed. so some of these guys are filler to make it seem bigger than it is. hes doing extreme rising and he owns wildkat , he works a few indies regular and has worked with wwe at local events in the area. if he was to sign with anyone it would be wwe. apparently luke hawks was not paid for his original tna tryout, so thats prob a reason he questions them.

    Whoever came up with this idea deserves a raise and a promotion. This is first thing TNA has done in a long time that was truly original, engages the fans, and creates new stars. I love it. I'm voting now.
