Impact Wrestling announced on Monday that Bound for Glory will take place on November 5th from the Aberdeen Pavilion in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. The venue will also host five days of Impact TV tapings on November 6-10.
During an interview with OttawaCitizen.com, Impact president Ed Nordholm was asked why they are aren’t running a larger arena instead of the Aberdeen Pavilion, where they are expecting around 500 fans in attendance.
“We’re legacy people,” Nordholm said. “It’s a great facility with a rich history. An arena would be a big place for us to sell. We want to have a venue with an intimacy with the crowd. The crowd will pack it rather than be spread out through it. It’s just the right size, it’ll ensure we can get people in the stands where they’ll have a connection with our wrestlers and vice-versa.”
Nordholm continued, “Our tagline is Less Talk More Action. It’s a style of wrestling that focuses more on the action in the ring than in the storylines. Not to take anything away from WWE, that is their product and they obviously do a spectacular job. But we have a very good show with talented wrestlers, athletic wrestlers.”
It’s worth noting that once again, there were no references to Global Force during the interview.
