BOUND FOR GLORY: Trio of former Impact Wrestling stars return at BFG 2020

Posted on 10/25/120 by Colin Vassallo

Three former Impact Wrestling stars made their return to the
promotion last night in the Call Your Shot gauntlet match at
Bound For Glory. These were Daivari, Swoggle, and perhaps
the biggest surprise of the night, James Storm.

Daivari, under the name of Sheik Abdul Bashir, wrestled for
the company between 2008 and 2009, winning the X Division
title once. He was recently working as a WWE producer until
he was cut in the mass layoffs in April as part of the
COVID-19 cost-cutting measures.

Swoggle, who wrestled as Hornswoggle in WWE, wrestled for
Impact between 2016 and 2017 although there were reports at
the time that he was never under a contract with the
company. He last made a cameo appearance for WWE at the 2019
womens Royal Rumble match.

And finally, James Storm also returned, weeks after he
revealed that he had a WWE contract offered to him this year
but it was never executed due to bad timing with the
coronavirus pandemic. Storm worked for Impact between 2002
and 2015 and was part of the inaugural TNA pay-per-view in
June 2002. He made a second return to the promotion between
2016 and 2018 and is a multi-time champion for Impact.

It remains unclear if all three are set for the long haul
with Impact or if its just a one night only return for
Bound For Glory.
