TNA Announces Interactive Gut Check Challenge

TNA sent out the following today…

Nashville, Tenn. – (January 17, 2013 ) – TNA IMPACT WRESTLING is launching #GutCheckChallenge, creating an interactive experience by letting fans decide the one previous “Gut Check” participant who is most deserving of appearing on IMPACT WRESTLING’s “Gut Check” segment on Spike TV. will host the #GutCheckChallenge with fans interacting to decide the ultimate winner. A tournament format will be open to past participants in the “Gut Check” seminars with videos, short bios and more. This format will give fans a direct impact on who wins the #GutCheckChallenge. Fans will learn about the different participants and ultimately choose their favorite to advance.

The tournament will be staged in rounds with fans voting to decide who will advance in each round until the final matchup – and winner – is ultimately decided.

In the spring of 2012, IMPACT WRESTLING brought “Gut Check” to Spike TV. This competition sees an aspiring wrestler get a chance to tell their story, have a match and be evaluated with the ultimate goal of earning an IMPACT WRESTLING roster contract. Alex Silva, Taeler Hendrix, Sam Shaw, Wes Brisco, Christian York, Crimson and Jesse Sorensen have all passed their “Gut Check” to earn a spot on the Impact Roster. Now the competition is getting even bigger.

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 wrestlers’ performance and give their final verdict on IMPACT. Fans are asked to answer this one simple question: Which participant is most deserving of appearing on the “Gut Check” segment on Impact Wrestling?

    Kind of like your shitty ranking system from 2010? Okie doke. Let's see how this goes.

    Yup, revamping it because it has nearly run its course. How many roster spots must be left? I nominate Kevin Steeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeen!

  3. Dante_Cross says:

    So we'll be getting all the guys who didnt make it to TV, but were noteworthy at the seminars?

  4. purpleurkel says:

    The 2 guys from last week were both unimpressive. I like heels but that guy's big move is a lariat? Ambien take me away

    • Dante_Cross says:

      A Lariat is great if done right, though the only people I have seen pull off devastating Lariats that are worthy of being finishers are those bulky strongmen in Japan like Kenta Kobashi.

    the entire match was very lackluster

    from what I saw, Chase Stevens is listed on the fan poll? That's strange considering he was a large part of the Naturals.

    TNA should get Kevin Steen and Ricochet
