At Victory Road, Frankie Kazarian outlasted seven other competitors to win the return of Triple Threat Revolver, earning him a coveted X-Division Title opportunity at Bound For Glory.

Now the two are on a collision course for Albany, NY where they will face off for the richest prize in the X-Division! “Speedball” has been setting the world on fire with his willingness to defend against anyone, anywhere. But as a pioneer of the X-Division and worldwide wrestling superstar, Kazarian will stop at nothing to capture the gold for a fifth time. Who will reign supreme in what can only be described as an X-Division dream match for the ages?
Tensions in the Knockouts tag team division were rising at Victory Road when the trio of Taya Valkyrie, Rosemary and Jessicka approached IMPACT official Gail Kim and told her that they were ready for their Knockouts World Tag Team Title rematch against VXT. This time, stepping in for Rosemary will be the fun-loving but destructive force known as Jessicka, as she unites with Taya Valkyrie in an attempt to regain their titles from Deonna Purrazzo and Chelsea Green. Following a brawl between the two rival teams, Jessicka proved to a doubtful Rosemary that she may hold the key to turning their luck around. Two teams will walk in but only one can leave Albany, NY as Knockouts World Tag Team Champions!

Impressed by her performance, James challenged Yim on the biggest stage of the year, Bound For Glory. In a match built on respect, will James prove why she’s one of the greatest Knockouts of all time? Or will Yim triumph and bring an end to the legendary career of “Hardcore Country”?
