Adam Ohriner, a 2004 Mepham High School graduate, will make his in-ring national television debut tonight on Spike TV’s “Impact Wrestling,” starting at 9 p.m.

His appearance, which was taped last week in Peoria, Ill., is part of a “TNA Gut Check” search to find new talent for the company. The match was a tryout, and Ohriner will find out soon if he will be offered a TNA contract.

Ohriner, 27, who wrestles on the independent scene as “Big O,” started his quest for squared-circle fame after appearing in friend and WWE Superstar Zack Ryder’s YouTube show, “The Z! True Long Island Story.”

Check out video from last year of Ohriner at Deer Park’s New York Wrestling Connection training facility here.
