Best And Worst of Bound For Glory
#1 Worst: What happened after the match
Johnny Impact won the match by delivering his finisher- Starship Pain, on to Austin Aries. And then Austin Aries took the pin, got up, flipped the announcers and walked to the back, no selling the finish. It was a tragic end to what had been a great match until that point. There's no way to know if this was a work or not, but I thought this was a pretty ugly moment.
If this was a work, it was certainly believable. I wonder if Impact Wrestling is trying to capitalize on the hype of Conor vs. Khabib by booking a post-match angle that overshadowed the actual match. It could potentially play on to the television tapings in the coming weeks.
Whatever the case may be, this angle made the match feel phony. It was a tragedy that such a good match ended on such a bitter note. And therefore, I will list it as a worst.
