TNA’s biggest pay-per-view of the year “Bound for Glory” takes place this weekend and there are still changes being made. According to PWS on Oct. 18, TNA President Dixie Carter has now made AJ Styles’ world title match with champion Bully Ray a “No Disqualification” match.
Here is a look at what fans can expect from this big PPV event.
Before the PPV starts, there will be a “Gauntlet” match, which sees Bad Influence battle Joseph Park & Eric Young, Chavo Guerrero and Hernandez and the Bro-Mans. The Bro-Mans are guaranteed the final entry thanks to a win on this week’s “TNA Impact Wrestling” show by Robbie E.
Whoever wins the Gauntlet match gets a tag team title shot against Gunner and James Storm on the “Bound for Glory” PPV itself.
The Knockouts title will be on the line in a three-way between champion ODB and challengers Gail Kim and Brooke Tessmacher.
Kurt Angle will wrestle in his first match since he checked into rehab a couple of months ago and battle Bobby Roode. Angle will also be honored on the show as the newest entrant into the TNA Hall of Fame.
In a match between friends, Magnus will battle Sting in what they are advertising as Magnus’ “breakout” match, comparing it to when Sting battled Ric Flair many years before.
In what will probably be the best match on the entire “Bound for Glory” pay-per-view, the X-Division title will be on the line in an Ultimate X match. The champion Manik will defend his belt against Jeff Hardy, Chris Sabin, Austin Aries and Samoa Joe in the match.
Finally, in the main event, Bully Ray will defend his world title against A.J. Styles in a “No Disqualification” match. If Styles loses, his contract is expired and he will have to leave TNA Impact Wrestling.
TNA “Bound for Glory” airs at 8 p.m. EST on Oct. 20 on pay-per-view.
