The guy has been in OVW for quite some time now and has shown promise.

I recently bought a OVW tape and I was impressed by Toland.He is short on height but his overall conditioning compensate for that.

Toland is in very good shape, has some great mic abilities and is very capable in a wrestling ring.

I think the WWE should give him a chance.

Is it just me or does he look like a photoshopped Billy Gunn head on Chris Masters' body?

What does he do? Is he a suplex machine like Steiner? Does he wear down body parts? Is his finisher simple yet impressively done? Is he Lugeresque, meaning does he do the alternating pect flex? Suckas gots to know.

Toland is pretty fast in the ring. I haven't saw many matches of him but he has an impressive top rope splash and hard clotheslines.

Toland spent most of the last year in a face tag-team with Chris Cage called Adrenaline. They broke up the team last fall, with Chris Cage moving on to be OVW Champion for a time before relinquishing that role to Elijah Burke (who just lost the belt last night to Matt Morgan, a long-time OVW champ).

So here I am talking about Toland and end up talking more about Chris Cage. Maybe that says something.

Tank went right back into another tag-team, this one as a heel with his cousin "Chad Toland." He's been in the Blonde Bombers ever since. They've just recently teamed up with Jillian Hall and it appears that the three of them will be spending the OVW Summer Sizzler series at Six Flags Kentucky going up against The Thrillseekers (Matt Cappotelli & Johnny Jetter) with Alexis Laree in a six-person feud.

I could see Tank going up eventually. He's a good worker and he has gained a lot in the past few months when talking on the mic. Small guy, but moves quickly and is built enough like Benoit that you can believe he could take down someone much larger than himself. I certainly would see him at WWE more than someone like Chris Masters, to be honest.

Can't say I can think of a signature move of his besides some great looking clotheslines, however.

Damn, Chris Pontius has gotten huge! Are they going to bring in Steve-O to make the Wildboyz tag team?

I am sensing a money fued with Chris Masters!

I think you're an asshole. No, no, let me correct that, an immature asshole. Which is fine, except that you're marrying my daughter and I'm afraid that my grandchildren are gonna be little assholes.

Rats! I was hoping by "Toland" you meant "Abbott."

I've always thought of him as the result of Mike Awesome getting stuck in Tazz's body. He does a lot of high-impact moves like a big guy would do, but he's only 5'9" or 5'10" if that. He's also got a finisher called the "Tank Turrett," which (I think) is a version of the Polish Hammer. After Chris Masters broke Stevie's face, methinks he'd be changing that finisher if he got called up.

Tank Toland is literally only about 5'4" or so... he's *tiny*. Jim Cornette is a head taller than him.

Hell will freeze over before it gets called up... a shame because he's very good.

The tank turret is a spinning polish hammer.

(Disclaimer: Reading this, Vince Russo will appear to have much more wrestling knowledge than he does. Plot devices are a son of a bitch though, you know that? However, to keep the anti-Russo fans happy, he will speak like Vic Venom wrote.
