The premiere on October 30th is not to be missed!

Impact Wrestling have announced that there will be somewhat of a Bound For Glory rematch, with a World Title Cage Match seeing Brian Cage defend the championship against a man who joined us recently on Dropkick DiSKussions in Sami Callihan.

There will be further fallout from Bound For Glory with Ken Shamrock addressing his future with the company, and Rob Van Dam explaining why he turned on Rhino.

Newly crowned X-Division Champion Ace Austin also faces off against BFG Gauntlet winner Eddie Edwards in a Street Fight, while Knockouts Champion Taya Valkyrie will be in a 6-Woman Tag Team Match with Kiera Hogan and Madison Rayne, taking on the team of Rosemary, Jordynne Grace and Alexia Nicole.

One half of Tag Team Champions The North, Josh Alexander, will also be in action against the legendary Naomichi Marufuji.
