Impact Wrestling has confirmed their World Championship match for Bound for Glory 2019.
Brian Cage is officially set to defend his Impact World title against Sami Callihan at the pay-per-view. Callihan became the number one contender to the title by defeating Tessa Blanchard at August’s Impact Plus Unbreakable special.
On last week’s Impact, Callihan issued an ultimatum for Impact to give him his title shot or have Cage relinquish the title due to his back issues. The main event angle on last night’s episode featured Cage saying he won’t allow the title to be stripped from him. Cage said he’s going to be ready for Bound for Glory and will defend his title against Callihan.
Bound for Glory is taking place at the Odeum Expo Center in Villa Park, Illinois on Sunday, October 20. Impact has announced Pro Wrestling NOAH’s Naomichi Marufuji for the event. At last month’s Impact tapings in Mexico City, Michael Elgin issued a challenge for Marufuji to face him at the PPV.
A feud between Moose and Ken Shamrock has also been building ahead of Bound for Glory.
