I have a lot of comments about this week's Impact Wrestling, and I am probably not the only one. This week's Impact Wrestling, in my mind, brought everything together. That is so appropriate given the upcoming PPV. While TNA, and even WWE, aren't always doing the best things right before one of their PPVs, I can say that TNA, and WWE, do a great job hyping and building their biggest PPV of the year. TNA had great booking this week. They had all of the stories on the show. They built each story up to the peak as the opponents will collide at Bound for Glory. TNA booked some amazing matches for the PPV. There is clearly something for everyone. If you like fast pace, you have the X-Division. If you like the knockouts, you have the Knockout Title match. If you like tag team, the TNA Tag Team Titles are on the line. There are also stipulation matches that will have weapons. There will be real wrestling as Kurt takes on Roode and there is classic style as Sting will face Hogan. While many aren't too happy or excited about that match, I am. The storyline is at it's peak. It is at the climax. This has been building for over a year. This time last year, we saw Immortal form. It's quite astonishing it's been a year already. Anyway, this show flowed from one story to the other. They also had videos that really hyped up the Kurt vs. Roode match. Overall, I felt like this was one show that really flowed more than any show recently. I can clearly state that this show beat Raw ten fold! Do not miss Bound for Glory as it looks to be historically amazing! If you want to hear more from me, follow me on Twitter right here.
