BOUND FOR GLORY MAIN EVENT IS SET!

WORLD CHAMPION ERIC YOUNG COLLIDES WITH RICH SWANN TO HEADLINE THE BIGGEST IMPACT WRESTLING EVENT OF 2020
LIVE ONLY ON PAY-PER-VIEW, SATURDAY, OCTOBER 24

NASHVILLE – (September 16, 2020) The main event for Bound For Glory is set: Eric Young will defend the IMPACT Wrestling World Championship in a one-on-one showdown with Rich Swann. The hotly anticipated collision headlines IMPACT Wrestlings biggest pay-per-view event of the year, which takes place in Nashville, TN, on Saturday, October 24 (8p.m. ET/ 5p.m. PT).

The confirmation for this huge World Championship match came during last nights IMPACT! on AXS TV. Swann stormed to the ring and demanded IMPACT executive Scott DAmore grant him a shot at Young, the self-anointed World Class Maniac who had viciously attacked Swann in August.

DAmore, who is IMPACT Wrestlings Executive Vice President, said: Fans should get ready for one of the most exciting matches in Bound For Glory history. Whatever people think about Youngs tactics since hes returned to IMPACT, no one can deny hes one of the best in-ring performers in all of professional wrestling.

But, Eric is facing a very determined Rich Swann. This is the biggest opportunity of Richs career – a world title shot at IMPACTs showcase event of the year. And, obviously, its a very personal match for Rich. When he asked no, when he demanded this fight – I saw a look in Rich Swanns eyes that let me know hes going to deliver the performance of his life at Bound For Glory.

Bound For Glory will be available on Pay-Per-View in North America at 8 p.m. ET on Saturday, October 24 on InDemand, DISH, DirecTV, Vubiquity, Rogers, Bell, Shaw, Sasktel and around the world digitally via FITE TV (order now).

The former X-Division Champion had announced he was done with active competition just moments before Youngs sneak attack. Swann spent the first half of 2020 painfully rehabilitating his right leg after suffering a serious fracture in January and, frustrated when the leg was reinjured at Julys Slammiversary, announced his retirement. Ironically, it was Youngs August 4 assault that made Swann determined to return to action and finally win the World Championship.

Swann said: I really should thank this maniac for reigniting a fire in me that was beginning to fade during those months of endless rehabilitation sessions. I cant describe the emotions I have going into Bound For Glory. Im going to remind everyone, especially Eric Young, just how high I can fly. I will take the World Championship from Eric Young, mark my words.

The defending champion laughed at Swanns sentiments.

Young said: Everything that has happened since I returned to IMPACT Wrestling at Slammiversary has unfolded according to my design and Bound For Glory will be no exception. Ive hurt Rich Swann physically, Ive crushed him psychology and, at Bound For Glory, I will end him.

Every IMPACT championship will be defended as part of what promises to be an instant classic Bound For Glory event. The full card will be announced in the coming weeks and dont miss an episode of IMPACT! on AXS TV, Tuesdays at 8 p.m. ET/ 5 p.m. PT.
