If I was a judge here would be my breakdown of him:

Positive:
Good ring shape
Unique look
Has a personality

Negative:
Some of his moves looked lazy and slow. He needs some fine tuning.
His age might be a factor, depending on how much work he needs to get over and polish up his ring skills compared to how long he can actually be used and his body will hold up. Could be a bad investment time vs actually marketability wise.

Vote: Yes

I like him, he has a good look I will give him that, Because of his age I would e real happy if they said yes and just skipped OVW all together with him and brought him straight up to the main roster

I think he would be a great addition to the X division. I thought he was Joey Mercury at first.

I'll go with Playboy's set up.

Positives:
Experience fact in the business
Currently in shape to be on TV
Seems to have a fire lit
Loved the Half-Nelson German he pulled off
Good chemistry in the ring with a recent X-Division champ
Put on a solid 5+ min match without blowing up

Negative:
Looked sluggish a few times (The forward flip Pele)
Age is a concern - Will he be an Austin Aries who gets over in a year or less?
How long will it take to get him Impact Live ready - Can he go week to week?
What's his cap? Outside of being in the X Division, how can he be used?

He is the first one I can honestly say I have a full out "Yes" reaction to, but he does have a few setbacks that would determine how long I would sign him for.

He tagged with him for years on the indy scene.

Yes I don't see him being world champion, but the X-Division need some new talent and he took the former x-division champion to the limit so yea.

Yes, give him a shot. They don't have to sign him for the next 10 years. Bring him in if he gets over give him a push. If he gets really over give him a X Division title shot. I don't think I would put the title on him. Still he could freshin things up. Nothing else put him in a tag team.

I missed it on tv last night, but watched it on Youtube today. I really liked this guy towards the end of the original ECW (yes he is technically an ECW original if you go by that). I so wanted to see this guy go to either WCW or WWE back than, but he didn't. Now he has this shot and I thought his match was really good. Not stellar like a Main Event, but better than most of the Gut Check matches in past months.Hopefully they don't vote no and bring this guy to the main roster. I also think the TNA Front Office could use his expertise as a tag team specialist to help build up the somewhat weak Tag division (personal opinion). Or they could put him in a feud with Kid Kash. Personally I think starting him off in a feud with Kash would be a good program.

They were on the first few ROH shows together along with Mickie James as there valet until Joey joined Special K


Oh, and Yes. He looked good in his match. Age could be a limiting factor though

Tna can use him for 3 or 4 years he looked good in the ring.He's in good shape so it will be a good addition for the X-division

He's the first Gut Check wrestler I would have signed, he looked better than some of the current roster

I think this is a no from me. TNA's roster is pretty big right now and currently it's if your not in the title picture wait in the sidelines or job. They still have Ion, King, Dutt, Sorenson, RVD, Silva and Ryan for the X Division with Kaz, Daniels, Aries and AJ able to jump in if needed. Age can be a big factor but he looked pretty solid, but I don't want him signed if they have nothing for him.

Yes, they should sign him. He was the most impressive of all the gutcheck contestants I've witnessed.

In that match with Ion, York didn't look like a (green) gutcheck participant, instead he looked like an seasoned veteran and the crowd was reacting and cheering him on.

Overall, I was really impressed with his performance.

Couldn't agree more he worked the crowd well and most importantly got an actual reaction out of the usually dull impact zone.
