Petey Williams vs. Taiji Ishimori vs. Fenix vs. Johnny Impact
Excellent match to kick off the show. The atmosphere in the building is great and the fans are into everything which enhances the show. Impact won after pinning Fenix with Starship Pain.
Tessa Blanchard vs. Allie
Another good match. It is clear that they are going to give Blanchard a huge push because she signed a two-year deal. Blanchard won after escaping the Allie Death Driver and hitting the hammerlock DDT for the pin.
House of Hardcore Rules Match
Tommy Dreamer vs. Eddie Edwards
Tons of weapons used in this match including tables, kendo sticks, trash cans, etc. The fans kept things exciting and there were ECW chants. At one point, a fan handed Dreamer a replica ECW title and it was used to hit Edwards in the head. Dreamer opened Edwards up with a staple gun and there was blood on his forehead. Edwards won but the crowd was upset because Dreamer set up a table in the ring and poured lighter fluid but he never got to do the spot because Edwards took over the match. After the match, Dreamer and Edwards hugged but Edwards teased hitting Dreamer. Dreamer gave the kendo stick to Edwards to signify that he was passing the torch. Alisha Edwards walked to the ring and yelled at her husband to shake Dreamer’s hand. He did and then Dreamer walked to the back.
Matt Sydal vs. Brian Cage
Another great match. It ended when Sydal missed the Shooting Star Press. Cage hit the drill call to win the title. Cage looked bigger than ever and it was acknowledged by the announcers.
Su Yung vs. Madison Rayne
One of the Undead Brides tried to interfere but it backfired when Yung accidentally sprayed the mist in her eyes. Yung retained the title by choking out Rayne. Rayne didn’t submit but she was out of it. Yung placed Rayne in a coffin on the rampway after the match while Josh Mathews said “there’s a body inside that coffin.” It came off silly because everyone knows that Mathews is married to Rayne.
5150 Street Fight
LAX (Santana and Ortiz w/ Konnan) vs. The OGz (Homicide andHernandez w/The King)
This felt like an ECW match with tons of weapons including a ladder, tables, trash cans, a bottle of Drain-O, etc. and the fans were into everything. Late in the match, Ortiz hit a Death Valley Drive on Homicide through a table in the corner. Hernanzed put Ortiz through a second table in the other corner. Homicide was going to hit the Gringo Killer but Konnan spit in his face and an argument broke out. Konnan threw a bag of thumbtacks to Santana. Santana hit a five-star frog splash onto Homicide on the thumbtacks. F**king crazy match. Awesome show so far. The OGz attacked Konnan after the match so this feud will continue. Kingston used a flap jack on Konnan and then they spray painted the tag titles.
Hair vs. Mask Match
Pentagon Jr. vs. Sami Callihan
The announcers said that the rules were being relaxed for this match so that allowed them to have an ultra-violent match. Callihan was busted open with a spike. Later they used the spiked on each other. This was the most violent match on the show and fans loved it. Again, this came off like a really violent ECW match from 1996-97. They did dueling chair spots with each guy violently hitting his opponent on the body. After that, the camera man zoomed in on Callihan and his face was covered in blood. The other members of OVE ran down but Pentagon took them out with chair shots. However, Callihan took over by throwing powder or salt into Pentagon’s eyes. Pentagon couldn’t see and accidentally took out the referee. He even broke his arm. He would have had the match after hitting the Pentagon Driver but the referee was in excruciating pain in the corner. Callihan got up and hit a piledriver onto a chair in the ring. A second referee ran down and counted but Pentagon kicked out. Callihan set up 4 chairs facing each other in the ring and was looking to hit a move but Pentagon reversed and hit the package piledriver through the chairs. Pentagon got a very very near fall but Callihan kicked out and the crowd went nuts. Pentagon hit several kicks to the face, Callihan flipped him off, Pentagon locked the arm and yanked it. Pentagon hit the package piledriver and pinned Callihan. WOW! The Crists attacked as Pentagon was about to shave Callihan’s head but Pentagon fought them off and Callihan ran off. Fenix stopped Callihan and forced him back to the ramp area. Pentagon shaved Callihan’s head as Fenix held him.
Bound For Glory will take place on October 14, 2018 in New York City at the Melrose Ballroom.
Curtis Granderson from the Toronto Blue Jays was introduced as the title holder before the match got started. Granderson is a wrestling fan.
Impact World Championship
Austin Aries vs. Moose
The Impact World Heavyweight Championship match between Austin Aries and Moose capped off a fantastic night of action on Sunday night. If you missed Slammiversary or if you haven’t been keeping up with the product then I would recommend for you to check out the replay via your local cable provider or FITE TV because this is a contender for pay-per-view of the year.
This match didn’t have weapons but it was still wild. There was a spot in the match with Moose tossing Aries into the fans from the elevated ramp. The end was Aries grabbing the belt from Granderson but Granderson jumped up and took it from him. The distraction almost cost Aries the match. Aries hit the brainbuster to retain.
