Former WWE Tough Enough star Ryan Howe will be competing this Thursday night in a TNA Gut Check challenger on Impact Wrestling. The following video details Howe's journey to pro wrestling, and gives an inside look at his rock star musician gimmick.
Note: I was actually at this TNA television taping, and got to witness the gimmick for the first time. The two guys put on a decent match, for Gut Check, but at the time I had no clue it was the same Ryan from WWE Tough Enough. He plays a very long guitar solo before making his entrance, and from what I could tell – and from experience playing guitar – it looked like he was actually performing live.
