Gutcheck is one of the amazing things about TNA. It gives wrestlers who never had much success a chance to succeed. It also gives us a chance to see fresh new talent attempt to take on the wrestling world. Well, one of the more recent contestants on Gutcheck was none other than Christian York. If you do not know who Christian York is, he is the former partner of Joey Matthews, or Joey Mercury to you WWE folk. These two were partners and worked in various companies together, including WWE and TNA. These two won tag team titles in multiple companies, and eventually began nine time tag team champions with each other. Eventually, Joey Matthews garnered some success in WWE as a part of MNM, while York was stuck in the independents. He eventually left wrestling to focus on his personal life. Whenever he returned, he was stuck in the indies once again. Eventually, he got his opportunity at TNA through Gutcheck and is now a part of TNA.

Now, he was very impressive during his Gutcheck match against Zema Ion. He showed great skill and showed that he could not only excel as a tag team wrestler, but as a singles wrestler as well. When he got accepted by the Gutcheck judges, I was ecstatic. I was so excited to see what York would be able to accomplish and when he challenged Jeff Hardy, I was like, “Awesome! I cannot wait to see what this guy can do against the insanely overrated champ!” Sure, he lost, but he put up one heck of a fight against the champion of TNA, which says a lot. He really showed his talents and I loved it.

Now, to the point of my blog. Christian York is definitely a future champion in TNA. Now, I am not talking about the World Heavyweight Championship, but I feel that Christian York is a great contender for either the X Division Championship or the Television Championship. First, he is under the 225 lb. weight limit for the X Division, if that still applies. He isn’t the biggest high flyer ever, but then again, neither was Homicide. As for the Television Championship, he would need a bit more pushing to get to that level, but he definitely has the experience behind him to get up there. Hopefully TNA gives the guys what he deserves and pushes him to their best ability and give him chances at one of these titles.

i totally agree with this bolg, and i'd love to see the matches that he and RVD could have.

one thing though, they scrapped the x division weight limit. that's why Samoa Joe had a few title shots earlier this year

Christian York came up through the OMEGA wrestling promotion that also produced both Matt and Jeff Hardy, Steve Corino, Joey Matthews, CW Anderson, Lita, Jason Abs? (the guy out of Mean Street Posse), Shane Helms and Shannon Moore.

He is a good talent, I remember watching him on a 3PW DVD, was quite ...

Would love to see Joey Matthews/mercury leave wwe as a fcw trainer to see what their potential would be as a tag team after accomplishing so much together....

As for York, the guy has the look, physique, and move set. I like him...I'm just undecided on if his hair goes well with him lol

That's the thing, York has been held back by being in a tag team... Now is his time to shine as a singles wrestler... He just needs the right gimmick to hide his mic skills or lack their of...

Well last weeks proved to definitely have some hints of politics being played by Angle in order to get Brisco not only a tryout but the only person to win Gut Check because they put him up against Garrett Bischoff of all people. Really? Really?

Other than that comment I really think that York is ...
