Impact is bolstering their chest of young talent in the transition back to TNA. The promotion announced the Gut Check winner and also signed a 19-year-old prospect from the UK.
As part of this past weekend’s UK Invasion Tour, the “Hot and Not Bothered” Liverpudlian pocket rocket, Harley Hudson, won the Gut Check tryout in Coventry and earned herself a contract with IMPACT Wrestling.
Hudson measures in at 5 feet 3 inches and hails from Liverpool. She’s been in wrestling for six years. Here’s a sample of Hudson’s work defending the Kingdom of Wrestling Women’s Championship against Lily Winter. She has a good base with charisma as a strong suit and room to grow under the tutelage of Impact training.
Impact also announced the signing of Leon Slater. Scott D’Amore gave a ringing endorsement, “Excited to welcome Leon to the TNA Wrestling roster. Mark my words, this young man is going to be a star and change this business!”

Slater is 19 years old with four years of experience out of Bradford, England. He sports an athletic high-flying style. The youngster has already wrestled some of the best, including “Speedball” Mike Bailey in RevPro.
