Jesse Sorensen Update, Ric Flair Changes Plans In TNA Gutcheck
– Jesse Sorensen was backstage visiting at TNA’s Impact Wrestling event last week. He’s said to be doing well and even had his neck brace off for a period of time.
– Alex Silva hasn’t been back on TNA TV since winning a Gutcheck Challenge because he was not supposed to win. A Gutcheck talent but have two “yes votes” to get hired. Originally, both Bruce Prichard and Ric Flair were supposed to vote no while Al Snow would have been the only yes vote. Flair was so impressed with Silva’s promo that he changed his vote in the middle of the segment. Prichard, who was also impressed, didn’t know how to fix things in mid-ring so he just changed his vote to a yes as well. TNA had the option of re-filming the segment but it would have looked bad in front of the crowd so they just decided to hire him.
Silva has been sent to Ohio Valley Wrestling and is currently working under a developmental deal.
