Bound For Glory Final Card And Preview

This Sunday night, Impact Wrestling presents Bound For Glory live on pay-per-view from the Melrose Ballroom in New York City. Let’s take a look at what’s scheduled for the big event.

Impact World Championship
Austin Aries (c) vs Johnny Impact

The main event of Bound For Glory 2018 will feature Johnny Impact taking on Austin Aries for the Impact World Championship. Impact Wrestling is likely hoping Johnny’s exposure in the hit reality show Survivor helps to draw interest in the show’s main event.

Aries has been atop Impact Wrestling for the majority of 2018. He won the title from Eli Drake on January 10th, 2018. Aries would then drop it to Pentagon Jr, however, at the Lucha Underground vs Impact Wrestling show over WrestleMania weekend. He’d win it back at the tapings over the following 2 days, however. Since then, he’s held the belt 172 days and defended it 11x. Johnny Impact might represent the biggest threat to his title reign yet, though.

Knockouts Champion
Tessa Blanchard (c) vs Taya Valkyrie

Tessa Blanchard says she’s cleaned out the entire Knockouts division since debuting with the company this spring. Taya Valkyrie disputes this, saying Blanchard can’t claim to have cleared out the division until she faces her.

Blanchard is 13-2 in Impact Wrestling. Her only losses both came to Madison Rayne, who won by clever pinning combinations each time. She’s defeated Kiera Hogan, Mercedes Martinez, Allie, Rebel, Alisha Edwards, Su Yung, Gisele Shaw, Faby Apache, and Keyra. Blanchard hasn’t defeated, or faced, Taya Valkyrie yet, however.

Sami Callihan & oVe vs Brian Cage & the Lucha Brothers

Brian Cage won’t defend his X-Division Championship at Bound For Glory. Instead, he accepted the offer by the Lucha Brothers to join them in their rivalry with OVE. Callihan and his cronies claim they are the best trio out there but Fenix, Pentagon, and Brian Cage will have something to say about that at Bound For Glory.

Eddie Edwards vs Moose

Moose main event’ed the last PPV against Austin Aries. Now, Moose is aligned with the Impact World Champion and taking on his former friend Eddie Edwards. According to Moose, Aries was the only one who called him while he was in the hospital post-Slammiversary. He then cost Edwards a shot at the Impact World Championship during the Toronto tapings this summer. Edwards will be out for revenge tonight.

Concrete Jungle Deathmatch
LAX & Konnan vs OGZ & King

A ceasefire was ordered in this storyline after King ran over a child with his car. LAX and the OGZ were not permitted to get physical with each other until the PPV in NYC. Konnan brought the ceasefire to a premature end Thursday night, however.

This is likely the blow-off to this feud which has been building for 8 months.

Rich Swann & Willie Mack vs Ethan Page & Matt Sydal

After losing the X-Division title to Brian Cage, Sydal began pitching Swann about being his mentor. Swann isn’t into yoga and spirituality, however, so he rebuffed Sydal’s offer. They would then meet in single’s action in Mexico City. Sydal won after interference from his newest protege, Ethan Page. The team of Page and Sydal challenged Swann to find a partner for Bound For Glory. This week on Impact, Swann announced Willie Mack will be his partner and make his Impact debut on Sunday.

Allie Travels To the Undead Realm

2 weeks ago Su Yung locked Kiera Hogan in a coffin. Allie had promised that she would stop Yung from ever doing that to anyone ever again. This week on Impact, Allie enlisted the help of Father James Mitchell, who promised her safe passage to the Undead Realm at Bound For Glory. Allie looks to be traveling to the land of the dead to rescue Kiera Hogan from Yung this Sunday in what might be a Final Deletion style segment.

Eli Drake Open Challenge (NYC Wrestlers Only)

The last time Eli Drake did an open challenge it was answered by La Parka in Mexico City. Drake opted to leave the match and get counted-out rather than face the legend. Although now Drake is claiming La Parka should have been DQ’ed for that match.

Drake said he’s bringing his open challenge to Bound For Glory but that only wrestlers from New York City are eligible to answer. That surprise will only be revealed at the PPV.
