On February 22, OMEGA Championship Wrestling is doing a live event in Smithfield, North Carolina. Matt Hardy and Shane Helms will be headlining the event as a tag team. Gunner, Christian York and Reby Sky have all been announced for the show as well.
Another person that TNA wants to push to the main event scene soon is Gunner. Many backstage feel that he can be elevated enough to be viewed as a worthy challenger for Brutus Magnus and the world title. The success of his story line with James Storm should help dictate that.
"It's hard to compare Gunner to either one of those guys just because I was in a tag team with those guys a much longer time. Me and Chris were basically unknowns coming up through the ranks trying to make a name for ourselves and as far as me and Bobby we were already established and we just kind of clicked together. It took us 6-8 months together to finally click but we did and we made a good run out of it. With me and Gunner, it's one of those things that I don't think we've been a tag team long enough to start describing us against my former partners."
At the NXT show in Tampa last night, Shaul Guerrero returned to the ring. She worked a tag team match with Sasha Banks against Bailey and Emma. After the loss, Guerrero turned on Banks and smeared lipstick all over her face.
WWE has decided to put Shaul Guerrero, the daughter of Eddie Guerrero and Vickie Guerrero, with Mason Ryan and Jason Jordan as their manager down in NXT.
There are talks that TNA could be looking to split Gunner away from James Storm to see if he can become a star as a singles wrestler.
Shaul Guerrero has also been doing some announcing in NXT, as she continues training as an in ring performer.
TNA star Gunner served in the United States military during the Iraq War.
