Yesterday and today, Impact Wrestling broke the news of two more Bound For Glory matches. On Friday, the company made official EC3 vs Moose in an undisclosed location.
A new side of Ken Shamrock emerged when he brutally attacked Eddie Edwards just a few weeks ago on IMPACT!, revealing himself as Eddie’s mystery attacker.
We saw signs of remorse on the conscience of Shamrock, but Sami Callihan quickly snapped him back into his destructive state of mind. With his former worst enemy calling the shots, there’s no telling how much chaos Shamrock will unleash on the IMPACT Wrestling roster. What we do know is that Eddie Edwards has a chance at revenge when he collides with Shamrock in a colossal match that is now official for Bound For Glory.
For a few weeks now, Sami Callihan has been trying successfully to make the worst of Ken Shamrock emerge. He unloaded his rage on Eddie Edwards, after what Edwards had to go through with Eric Young. If there’s no doubt in anyone’s mind Sami Callihan is able of everything, will the future TNA/Impact Wrestling Hall of Famer be okay to rekindle with his World Dangerous Man moniker?
The unique Call Your Shot Gauntlet returns this year at Bound For Glory. Two competitors start the match. After a time interval, another will enter the fray. Eliminations occur by throwing your opponent over the top rope. This process will continue until there are only two competitors remaining. The final two will compete in a singles match to be won by pinfall or submission. Whoever scores the victory will earn a future title opportunity of their choosing. If last year’s Call Your Shot Gauntlet taught us anything, it’s that you never know who may show up for this high-stakes contest!
This year’s rules are as obscure as last year. A few days before the 2019 edition, we didn’t know more than what is said above. What happened in the end? There were 20 competitors, men and women, some newcomers, and a lot of fun. One thing to remember about Impact Wrestling Gauntlet match, the first spot is usually a good spot… Ask Eddie Edwards…
