There will be 7 matches on the card with all of them being built up very well. Bound For Glory is being headlined by a very personal and violent feud between Impact World Champion Eric Young and Rich Swann. Today, I will be previewing each match and picking the winner of each match
Main Event – Eric Young (c) vs Rich Swann
The main event of Bound For Glory will see Eric Young defend the Impact World Title against Rich Swann.
This match is very personal with Eric Young making multiple attempts to end the career of Rich Swann dating all the way back to Slammiversary. Eric Young has made Rich Swann a target since his return at Slammiversary. Eric Young and Rich Swann were apart of a 5 man World Impact title match were Rich Swann pinned Eric Young to eliminate him from the match. In retaliation, Eric Young reinjured Rich Swann’s leg afterwards, pretty much causing Swann to get pinned by Ace Austin later in the match.
That following Tuesday on Impact when Rich Swann was announcing his retirement because of what Eric Young did, Young attacked Swann as he was leaving to go backstage. Swann looked like he was done due to Eric Young’s vicious attacks, but his resilience and hatred for Young has him in position to fight him for the Impact World Title. This will be a battle.
My Prediction – This isn’t going to be an ordinary regular match. I see this being a brawl. These two have bad blood and this match won’t be pretty. It will be very cool to see Rich Swann get revenge on Eric Young and win the Impact World Title, but I don’t see him winning. Eric Young has been unstoppable since coming back to Impact. He is as dangerous as he has ever been. I see Young having a lengthy title run.
Knockouts Title Match – Deonna Purrazzo (c) vs Kylie Rae
The Virtuosa Deonna Purrazzo will be defending the Knockouts Title against Kylie Rae. Kylie earned her title shot by winning a gauntlet match at Slammiversary, while Deonna has been dominant since arriving at Impact, laying waste to anyone in her way. This will be her 3rd title defence. Kylie Rae, since coming back to Impact from the Wrestle House, has been more aggressive due to Deonna bullying her. Kylie Rae is looking to stop Deonna and become Impact Knockout Champion.
My Prediction – I believe Kylie Rae will give Deonna her first singles loss in Impact and become the new Knockouts Champion. This is definitely a contender for match of the night.
4 Way Tag Team Title Match – MCMG (c) vs Good Brothers vs The North vs Madman Fulton/Ace Austin
The top four tag teams in Impact will get together in a four way battle to determine who walks away with the Impact Tag Team titles.
We have three tag teams who have held tag team gold in the past, with only Fulton/Ace never holding tag titles before. The Motor City Machine Guns who are the current Impact tag team champions are on their second run have truly made an impact since returning. They are willing to defend the tag titles against any team at any time, with BFG no different.
The North, the longest tag team champs in Impact history are looking to become two-time Impact tag team champs.
The Good Brothers, the most known tag team in this match, have held tag team in gold in NJPW and WWE. The Good Brothers will be looking to add the Impact Tag Titles to their collection.
Lastly, you have Fulton/Ace. They are the newer tag team of the four but make no mistake they have as good of chance as anyone of winning this match.
My prediction – any of these four tag teams could win this match and I wouldn’t be shocked about it. I’m going with The Good Brothers to win this match. Mostly because of the buzz they can bring with the belts and the fact that they one of the best tag teams in the world.
X Division Title – 6 Way Scramble Match
If you are looking for excitement, then this match will definitely deliver. We have 6 awesome competitors in a 6-way scramble for the X-Division title. Reigning X-Division champion Rohit Raju will have his hands full, trying to successfully defend his title against the 5 opponents who have each beaten him in recent weeks. Chris Bey, TJP and Willie Mack are both looking to become two-time X-Division champions while Jordynne Grace and Trey Miguel are looking to become X-Division champion for the first time.
My Prediction – This match will be a show stopper. I think this is the odds on favorite to be the match of the night. Every wrestler in this match is super talented. As bad as the odds are for Rohit Raju to retain the X-Division title, I believe he will use his craftsmanship to find way to win the match. He has been a great champion and I hope it continues.
EC3 vs Moose
Every since Slammiversary, EC3 has made Moose his target and it’s all because Moose has been carrying around the TNA Heavyweight title that he has been unofficially defending against other wrestlers. EC3 has been playing mind games with Moose, wanting to get rid of the TNA title once and for all.
This match is all about Moose wanting to keep something that he holds dear to his heart – TNA World Heavyweight title. EC3, on the other hand, is wanting to destroy the title that is a part of the past he wants to kill forever. This match will take place at an undisclosed location.
My Prediction – This is going to be a battle. These two are going to tear each other apart. Both are looking to prove something. I believe Moose gets the win because he has been on fire in 2020. He has barely lost this year and has been dominant. This winning ways will continue in a hard fought victory.
Eddie Edwards vs Ken Shamrock
This is the only match at Bound For Glory that doesn’t have a title involved, or potential future title match at stake. It is very personal.
The Heart & Soul of Impact Wrestling Eddie Edwards and now Impact Hall of Famer Ken Shamrock used to be friends, but now “The Worlds Most Dangerous Man” has aligned himself with the dangerous Sami Callihan and has made Eddie Edwards his victim. Brutal attacks week after week from Shamrock has Eddie Edwards looking for revenge at Bound For Glory. Can he defeat an even more dangerous Ken Shamrock that is now being led by Sami Callihan?
My Prediction – This is your classic good vs evil battle. Ken Shamrock seems to have the edge in this match because he has been a monster since aligning himself with Sami Callahan and he will be at ringside. Even with that in mind, I think Eddie Edwards will find a way to win this match.
The Call Your Shot Gauntlet
The Call Your Shot Gauntlet match will feature 12 wrestlers men and women fighting to win a chance to earn an opportunity at a title of their choice. There is a side note to this match. For two wrestlers in this match, it means much more. For Heath, if he or Rhino win the match, Heath will earn a full-time Impact Wrestling contract. If neither wins the match then Rhino will be fired from Impact Wrestling and Heath will still be a free agent. Hernández earned the right to be last to enter the gauntlet from winning a 5-way match and Rhino will enter first because he was pinned in the 5 way match.
The competitors in this match are:
- Acey Romero
- Alisha Edwards
- Brian Myers
- Larry D
- Tommy Dreamer
- Tenille Dashwood
- Taya Valkyrie
- A mystery 12th person to be announced during the match
My Prediction– Heath will finally get his moment and wins The Call Your Shot Gauntlet to finally earn a full-time Impact Wrestling contract.
I can’t wait for Bound For Glory as I believe this show will continue the great wave of ppv shows that Imapct Wrestling has done. Will you be tuning to watch Bound For Glory? What match are you looking most forward too?
