IMPACT Wrestling has announced the return of the Gut Check with a huge prize on offer.
IMPACT Wrestling is returning to the UK in October with four big shows taking place in Glasgow, Newcastle-upon-Tyne, and Coventry.
Will Ospreay will look to add to his successful 2023 when he joins the promotion in Newcastle for its Turning Point show, and he could provide some inspiration for some homegrown UK stars looking to take their next step in the pro wrestling world.
