#5 Christian Cage vs. Samoa Joe - Bound For Glory 2007
Heading into Bound For Glory 2007, Samoa Joe and Christian Cage staked their claim for a shot at the TNA Heavyweight Championship. Cage is a former champion, while Joe was still looking to win the top prize for the first time. Their issue with one another became personal when Christian's Coalition of AJ Styles, Tyson Tomko, and himself beat down Joe's family.
Making sure their grudge match at the biggest show of the year was a one-on-one contest, Matt Morgan was made the special enforcer to keep control. The two main event performers put on an exceptional bout. Samoa Joe came out full throttle in this Bound For Glory 2007 bout, hitting the tope suicida to Christian on the outside.
Cage caught a break when AJ and Tomko distracted Matt Morgan on the floor and hit a low blow on Joe. He followed up with the Unprettier for a nearfall. Samoa Joe made a comeback that Christian couldn't overcome.
He ended things with the Muscle Buster and the Coquina Clutch for the submission win. It was the standout contest on the Bound For Glory 2007 card.
