Don’t forget about Impact. The wrestling world is changing in a rapid way. There are all kinds of wrestling companies doing all kinds of things at the moment and it can be easy to lose track of all the things going on. While there are a lot of different companies popping up, some of the older ones are still around as well and that means some of the bigger shows with a deeper history are still around today. You might not have heard about it but a pretty important show took place over the weekend with a lot of titles on the line.
On Sunday night, Impact Wrestling presented its annual Bound For Glory event, which is the company’s biggest show of the year. During the event, four title matches took place with all four of the company’s main titles on the line. During the show, Brian Cage successfully defended the World Title against Sami Callihan, The North held onto the Tag Team Titles against challengers Rob Van Dam/Rhino and Willie Mack/Rich Swann and Taya Valkyrie continued her record setting Knockouts Title reign against Tenille Dashwood. The lone title change took place when Ace Austin won a five way ladder match to win the X-Division Title.
The new champ is a pretty big deal at the moment. Check out how he got into the title match:
Opinion: I know Impact Wrestling is not quite as big of a deal as it once was but it has come a long way since the rock bottom days of the promotion. They are coming up on a new television debut on AXS TV and a lot of their talent is rather entertaining. Bound For Glory may not seem like such an important show anymore but it is still one of the bigger non-WWE events of the year and something that deserves at least something of a look. Hopefully they can gain a bigger audience, as they have actually earned it in recent months.
