Impact Wrestling: Bound For Glory 2017 (11/5/17) -- Full results and recap
#3 Grado vs Abyss (Monster's Ball Match With Grado's Vica On The Line)
This match was not only going to be brutal because it's a Monster's Ball match, but it was also going to be for Grado's legal documentation of being able to travel to work. Yes, Bound For Glory certainly had international consequences on the line.
It got very extreme with thumbtacks, interference from Rosemary, and a barbed wire covered board.
The finish came when Abyss was blinded after taking some mist to the eyes so he chokeslammed Rosemary on the thumbtacks. Grado rolled Abyss up in a schoolboy and the referee counted to three and the bell rang.
But apparently, something had gone wrong because Jeremy Borash came out and said Aybss kicked out and then they restarted the match. Abyss then hit Grado with the Black Hole Slam on the barbed wire covered board to get the actual pinfall.
Winner: Abyss via pinfall
#4 EC3, James Storm, and Eddie Edwards vs Texano, El Hijo Del Fantasma, and Pagano
This match got plenty of time for these guys to work. AAA was obviously needing to be represented in this show and they pulled it off in a big way with this match.
The crowd was really hot for this contest though and there were plenty of high spots and fast-paced action.
In the end, EC3 hit Pagano and Texano with low blows. James Storm hit Pagano with a superkick and got the pinfall.
Winners: EC3, James Storm, and Eddie Edwards
#5 oVe vs LAX (Impact Tag Team Title Match - 5150 Steet Fight)
It was time for oVe to prove why they belong on the top of the tag team mountain in Impact Wrestling and the Latin American Exchange were going to do everything they could to make them work for it.
This match was an interesting brawl throughout. The finish came when Sami Callihan threw powder in Konnan's eyes and tossed Santana off the top rope through a ladder that had been set up. Ortiz then took a piledriver off the apron through a table and then OVW pinned Ortiz to get the win.
Winners and STILL Impact Tag Team Champions: OVE
#6 Sienna vs Gail Kim (Knockouts Title Match)
Gail Kim has worked her entire career to prove she is the best in the ring when she's in a match. Bound For Glory was her perfect opportunity to do just that one more time. But she had to make it through Sienna who is not only a worthy opponent but she didn't intend on dropping her title in Canada or any other country for that matter.
The story of this match revolved around Gail Kim winning the title during her final Bound For Glory event.
After a contest that could have been executed a little bit better the finish came when Gail Kim hit an Eat Defeat from the middle rope for the pinfall.
Jeremy Borash said this was Gail Kim's final match which must mean she's going to retire as champion which is a really cool accolade for the TNA Hall Of Famer. Or maybe it's all just a work. Either way, the crowd was very hot for this match too.
Winner and NEW Knockouts Champion: Gail Kim
