El Generico worked a tryout match for TNA tonight putting over The Amazing Red.

John Benoit sent word that Generico and Red had a good match and had the crowd "really into it", which is saying something for the last match on a taping.

Generico is still under contract to Ring of Honor. According to sources, ROH President Cary Silkin gave him permission to take the tryout. ROH has given permission to contracted employees in the past, including Bryan Danielson and Roderick Strong, to work dark matches for WWE and TNA.

TJ Perkins is also slated for a dark match tryout this week.
