TNA British Boot Camp 2, episode 8: or the one with the winner

December 30, 2014

We’re down to the final three, then. (If you don’t know how we’ve got to this point – one two three four five six seven.)

This week our trio of contestants face off against TNA talent in an effort to make a final impression.

November 15, 2014

What’s happened so far? This, this and this!

This time round, we get to see them in the ring, fighting each other, in front of a live audience in York Hall.
