The Big O, best known as Zack Ryder’s sidekick on the now-defunct Z! True Long Island Story YouTube series, got a TNA tryout on Sunday. Big O was part of the Gut Check tryout in Fayetteville, North Carolina on Saturday, before the promotion’s house show.
Big O, real name Adam Ohriner, spoke with the Fayetteville Observer and said, “You’ve got to have good basics – a good foundation. You definitely want to show off what you can do, but for me it’s always about safety first. And once you earn that trust between you and your opponent, then you can cut loose a bit more.”
