According to a new report, TNA has apparently scrapped the Sangriento character which had been played by The Amazing Red. No word yet on whether or not Red is still with the company, as the report only suggests that the Sangriento character has been dropped.

It’s being reported that Josh Taylor, an indy wrestler who works under the name The Giant Kyote, had a tryout with WWE before the company’s Sydney, Australia live event. Taylor stands 6’10" and weighs 385 pounds, and the report noted that he didn’t appear to be in very good physical condition, as his appearance was likened to that of a more out of shape Bam Bam Bigelow.
