    And.this should be news to no one. The guy with all the charisma is the guy they don’t sign.

  2. X-Pac says:

    Actually Joey Ryan has been KNOWN to a lot more than us than just Dave Lagana. Geesh!

  3. Fisha695 says:

    @Ryan, everybody that has been part of it so far has been signed regardless of the scripted “Yes/No” vote.

  4. Ian says:

    @Ryan…you have got to be kidding me if you actually believe Joey Ryan isnt signed already…its called a storyline and its a great one…he would not be allowed in the arenas and get that close to the front and pull the antics he has been if he wasnt signed and Al Snow wouldnt have gone after him and Tazz wouldnt constantly be mentioning him.

  5. Fisha695 says:

    @Ian, along the same line of thinking I can’t help but laugh at the storyline (and all the ones similar) where they’re “Not allowed in the building” but yet they always find their way in… I mean is Security really that crappy that you can have people who are blacklisted from the building still randomly walk in.. haha

    “Welcome to tNA Gutcheck, where the only way these young wrestlers can become TNA stars is to surpass expectations…..if you don’t count the ppv we just had where we brought it guys anyway……or the group that is now in TNA that no one knows……..this is the ONLY way though”.

    Gut check was cool in like 04….now it’s dumb.

  7. Honest Man says:

    Here come the internet kiddies pretening Ryan is so much better

    And really who the hell considers Alex Silva an OVW Superstar?

    The dude done quit OVW twice and ran home to Canada because he flopped at getting into a bigger company. The only damn reason he was back in OVW for his third run at the time of gutcheck was because TNA gave him a call and his US residence has got to be around Louisville.

    Taeler Hendrix has been an OVW mainstay who’s earned her spot in that company. Not a run home crybaby like Alex Silva when he couldn’t get a job with WWE, ROH or even TNA is his first two attempts.

  8. Bill says:

    Joey Ryan was signed a while ago (the reason why he’s not in ROH). He was working on Ring Ka King a few months ago. Any of the non-Indian talent wrestling for Ring Ka King is TNA talent.

    So far…and probably as long as Gutcheck exists, the talent has either been Ring Ka King talent that hasn’t made a TNA appearance or OVW talent.
