The main event for Bound For Glory is set as Eric Young will defend the IMPACT Wrestling World Championship against Rich Swann. The title match will headline IMPACT’s biggest show of the year in Nashville, TN on Saturday, October 24. The match was proposed on last night’s episode of IMPACT on AXS TV when Swann demanded he got a title shot after Young put him on the shelf last month.
Scott D’Amore, IMPACT Wrestling’s Executive Vice President, said: “Fans should get ready for one of the most exciting matches in Bound For Glory history. Whatever people think about Young’s tactics since he’s returned to IMPACT, no one can deny he’s one of the best in-ring performers in all of professional wrestling. But, Eric is facing a very determined Rich Swann. This is the biggest opportunity of Rich’s career – a world title shot at IMPACT’s showcase event of the year. And, obviously, it’s a very personal match for Rich. When he asked – no, when he demanded this fight – I saw a look in Rich Swann’s eyes that let me know he’s going to deliver the performance of his life at Bound For Glory.”
“I really should thank this maniac for reigniting a fire in me that was beginning to fade during those months of endless rehabilitation sessions,” Swann said. “I can’t describe the emotions I have going into Bound For Glory. I’m going to remind everyone, especially Eric Young, just how high I can fly. I will take the World Championship from Eric Young, mark my words.”
“Everything that has happened since I returned to IMPACT Wrestling at Slammiversary has unfolded according to my design,” Young said, “and Bound For Glory will be no exception. I’ve hurt Rich Swann physically, I’ve crushed him psychology and, at Bound For Glory, I will end him.”
‘Bound For Glory’ will be available on Pay-Per-View in North America at 8 p.m. ET on Saturday, October 24 on –InDemand, DISH, DirecTV, Vubiquity, Rogers, Bell, Shaw, Sasktel and around the world digitally via FITE TV (order now).
While confirming the Bound For Glory main event, IMPACT also confirmed the return of the Press Pass Podcast starting Tuesday, September 22. The special guests on that show will be Eric Young and Rich Swann.
