The German Pro Wrestler most famously won the January 2011 edition of TNA Gut Check in London, England.

Returning to TNA in February 2014, ‘Bad Bones’ John Klinger participated in multiple matches.

On February 1, he faced Christopher Daniels in a dark match, but was defeated. That same night, during the regular broadcast of IMPACT Wrestling, he suffered another loss to Samoa Joe.

However, the following night at the ‘TNA One Night Only: Joker’s Wild 2′ pay-per-view, Bones teamed up with Samoa Joe to secure a victory against Christopher Daniels and Robbie E in a qualifying match for the Joker’s Wild Gauntlet match. The $100,000 Joker’s Wild Gauntlet was ultimately won by Ethan Carter III.

Later, on the February 27 edition of IMPACT Wrestling, Bones was chosen by Magnus to face Magnus’ rival, Samoa Joe. Unfortunately, Bones was defeated in the ensuing match.

Bad Bones made another appearance on the February 24, 2017 edition of IMPACT Wrestling, where he faced the debuting UFC Veteran Josh Barnett, but came up short.
