Impact Wrestling's Bound For Glory PPV is now less than a week away. The company has recently shredded their wage bill, so expect at least one former WWE wrestler to appear in New York on Sunday.

#4 Big Cass

The 31-year-old recently admitted that his behavior was unprofessional during the latter stages of his WWE career.

Despite his release from the company, Big Cass is continuing with his wrestling career and he has recently started taking independent bookings under the name 'Big C'. With his a no compete clause reportedly over, Big Cass would be a huge signing for Impact Wrestling and would most likely be pushed immediately into the world title picture.


#3 Ryback

Ryback has been rumored to be heading to Impact Wrestling for nearly 18 months now. The speculation had died down over the past few months, however, the big man recently teased a return to pro wrestling.

Impact's limited schedule would likely appeal to the wrestler due to his other work interests and despite being the longest shot on the list, Ryback feuding with Brian Cage would provide Impact Wrestling with some great content over the next few months.

#2 James Ellsworth

Ellsworth has flirted with Impact over the last few months, even appearing during their Cali Combat One Night Only event. Ellsworth will most likely only work a few dates with Impact, due to the company already being stacked with comedic characters (Bahh, KM, Grado).

This makes an appearance at a major PPV such as Bound For Glory logical, as Ellsworth's appearance will generate interest despite Impact not having to pay him a high salary. This scenario is a win-win for both sides, so it will be interesting to see what plans Impact has for the man who beat AJ Styles three times.

#1 Chris Jericho

This one has been rumored for the best part of a year now, and just this week it was claimed that he was on the Bound For Glory card. Jericho has a close relationship with Impact Vice President Don Callis, and an appearance at the company's biggest PPV would further add to the momentum that Impact Wrestling has built in 2018.

Will Chris Jericho be the final wrestler to answer Eli Drake's open challenge this Sunday? Well this scenario is likely considering that Eli Drake currently has no scheduled match in New York.
