Less than two weeks ago at Bound For Glory, The Kingdom reigned supreme in their battle against the Motor City Machine Guns to remain IMPACT World Tag Team Champions. On that same night, Rhino made his shocking return in the Call Your Shot Gauntlet and reunited with his longtime friend and tag team partner, Heath. After being taken out of action by Honor No More, Rhino has more than gold on his mind – he wants revenge. This Thursday, Heath and Rhino join forces to challenge Matt Taven and Mike Bennett with the IMPACT World Tag Team Titles on the line!
After defeating Mike Bailey to become the new X-Division Champion at Bound For Glory, Frankie Kazarian made his intentions known when he confronted IMPACT World Champion Josh Alexander and uttered the words “Option C”. This Thursday, Kazarian will relinquish the X-Division Title in exchange for an IMPACT World Title opportunity, a championship that has eluded him during his monumental career! Will Josh Alexander welcome the challenge of Frankie Kazarian? And what does this mean for the future of the X-Division Title? Tune in to IMPACT! to find out.
Bound For Glory also played host to the jaw-dropping return of Bully Ray, who won the Call Your Shot Gauntlet to earn a coveted title opportunity of his choosing, any time, any place. After promising to “call his shot” in an honorable fashion, Bully’s past came back to haunt him when he was accused by multiple parties of being the most untrustworthy individual in professional wrestling. This Thursday, Bully looks to prove that he’s a changed man as he joins forces with fellow veteran Tommy Dreamer to battle the young guns of Bullet Club, Ace Austin and Chris Bey!
One of the most intense rivalries in IMPACT Wrestling history will be renewed when Eric Young and Rich Swann collide this Thursday. In the main event of Bound For Glory 2020, Swann dethroned Young to become IMPACT World Champion for the very first time. Fast forward to this year’s Bound For Glory, where Swann once again bested Young on the grand stage, eliminating him from the Call Your Shot Gauntlet. Now the leader of Violent By Design looks to gain a measure of revenge but does he have what it takes to topple Swann?
It’s about to get Wilde this Thursday! After making her long-awaited return at Bound For Glory, former Knockouts World Champion Taylor Wilde competes in singles competition for the first time in over a year. Standing across the ring from her will be a determined Mia Yim, who is looking to bounce back following a hard-fought loss to Mickie James. With her sights set on becoming Knockouts World Champion once again, will Wilde jumpstart her return with a victory over “The HBIC”?
Say his name and he appears – in singles action this Thursday! Don’t miss it when Joe Hendry steps into the ring with this year’s Gut Check winner, Jason Hotch.

On the contrary, Hendry vows that he is simply providing Hotch with a learning opportunity, one that will culminate with their match on IMPACT. Will Hendry continue to motivate the locker room or will Hotch prove that he’s the future of IMPACT Wrestling?
