[TNA News] Gut Check Format Changing for the Better

tna gut check

TNA has decided to change how they do “Gut Check” from now on and I couldn’t be happier about it; the company announced the format change on their official website, stating that instead of having  contestant face a member of the TNA roster, there will two contestants and they will do battle with one another. The Gut Check judges (Taz, Bruce Prichard, Al Snow) will then evaluate both of their performances and make a decision on the next week’s show. This new format debuts tomorrow on IMPACT Wrestling.

I haven’t been the biggest fan of the Gut Check segments since they debuted; having the contestants continually lose (Wes Brisco being the exception) to already established talents made them look weak and the judges look even weaker by signing said losers. Having the two contestants face off with one another makes a ton more sense and actually makes the stakes even higher. I am all for this and can’t wait to see it on tomorrow’s show. Now if only they’d jump the “sob stories” portion…

[TV Review] IMPACT Wrestling – 1/3/2013

Impact Wrestling Review
