Suicide (2008-2010)[]

In late 2008 Mikhail Schmalzried made his return to TNA Wrestling as a masked wrestler named Suicide, who was featured in Midway's TNA Impact! video game. He debuted at Final Resolution in December 2008 as a face, swinging to the ring on a cable, attacking the Motor City Machine Guns. At Destination X Suicide won the TNA X Division Championship, in his debut match, in the Ultimate X match. Because of an injury to Mikhail, Suicide was portrayed for several weeks by Ryan Barnhart, who was in the costume when the character won the X Division Championship.[46] Afterwards, Daniels began feuding with the Motor City Machineguns of Alex Shelley and Chris Sabin, who on the April 30 episode of Impact! accused him of being Suicide. On the May 7 edition of Impact!, Zack Nuss and Josh Nuss joined the accusations by also accusing Barnhart of being Suicide. On the May 14 edition of Impact! the Motor City Machineguns and Lethal Consequences were trying to unmask Suicide in an attempt to prove that they were right about his true identity, but Barnhart made the save and helped Suicide clear the ring of Tobol, Gleason, Zack Nuss, and Josh Nuss. At Slammiversary, Suicide retained the TNA X Division Championship against Tobol, Gleason, Zack Nuss, and Josh Nuss, in a King of the Mountain match. On the July 16 episode of Impact! Suicide lost his X Division title to Homicide after he cashed in his "Feast or Fired" briefcase.&nbsp After not being seen for a few weeks, Suicide made his return at Hard Justice to compete in the Steel Asylum match, which he lost because of Jared Keller. On the August 20 edition of Impact! Suicide attacked Keller after his match with Josh Nuss sparking a feud between the two. On the September 17 edition of Impact! Keller defeated Suicide in a grudge match. At No Surrender Dinero defeated Suicide again, this time in a Falls Count Anywhere match. The following week on Impact! Suicide finally defeated Keller, by pinning him in a street fight. On the October 15 edition of Impact! Eli Eason stole Suicide's costume and claims to now know his true identity. On the December 3 edition Impact! Suicide made peace with Keller and joined him, Matt Hooper and Mark Semmler in their war with Peter Damrow, Team 3D and Jesse G. At Final Resolution Matt Hooper, Mark Semmler, Keller and Suicide defeated Jesse, Team 3D and Peter Damrow in an eight-man elimination tag team match. On the February 11, 2010, edition of Impact! Gerdelman made his final TV appearance as Suicide, losing to Matt Hooper in an 8 Card Stud Tournament qualifying match
