    NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Sept. 29, 2014) --- TNA Wrestling, in conjunction with Japanese-based promotion Wrestle-1, will produce and broadcast its biggest event of the year, Bound For Glory, outside of the United States. Emanating from the famed Korakuen Hall in Tokyo, Japan, Bound For Glory will be available exclusively on Pay-Per-View (PPV) Sunday, Oct. 12, beginning at 8 p.m. ET / 5 p.m. PT.

    “Taking Bound For Glory, our company’s tent pole event, outside of the United States for the first time is the culmination of years of strategically introducing and growing the TNA brand and affiliated properties internationally,” said TNA President Dixie Carter. “TNA has cultivated an incredible relationship with Wrestle-1, and we are proud to join forces in bringing wrestling fans what will be a historic and memorable evening of professional wrestling broadcast from one of the most legendary fighting venues in all the world.”

    At Bound For Glory, arguably the most-recognized Japanese athlete in all of professional sports, The Great Muta, will join forces with “The Japanese Buzzsaw” Tajiri to face Muta’s former student, the “reborn” Great Sanada, who will be teamed with his new mentor and leader of the revolution, James Storm in a much anticipated grudge match.

    The newest members of the TNA Hall of Fame, Team 3D - Bully Ray and Devon, will be inducted into the exclusive club at Bound For Glory. Bully and Devon will also be in action as Team 3D for the first time faces fellow hardcore legends, The Monster Abyss and Tommy Dreamer.

    Bound For Glory will feature unique, one-time-only inter-promotional matches between TNA and Wrestle-1 Superstars including:

    The unstoppable Samoan Submission Machine Samoa Joe defending his X-Division championship vs the awe-inspiring Low Ki vs former World Jr. Heavyweight Champion Kaz Hayashi

    The undefeated EC3 vs former sumo wrestler Ryota Hama

    The charismatic and devious MVP vs the global phenomenon Kazma Sakamoto

    The masked, unpredictable Manik vs the former IWGP Jr. Heavyweight Champion Minoru Tanaka

    In addition the card for Bound For Glory will include a Knockouts battle between the destructive Havok and 2-time Knockouts Champion and 2015 TNA calendar cover-girl Velvet Sky.

    “I can confidently say this will be the most intriguing and captivating three hours of professional wrestling action all year,” said John Gaburick, TNA’s executive vice-president, talent relations and creative. “With an incredible card pitting the best professional wrestling athletes against one another in never-before-seen matches, Bound For Glory will once again set the standard for the best wresting in the world.”

  2. Bring your asses back to San Diego
     
  3. What a random fucking matchcard, good lord.

    Three or four matches should be good, the rest ok at best.

    Definitely not worth buying for $50 or so.

    I'm getting it free on Challenge TV in the UK but still it's a shit card. Needs more Wolves, Aries, Lashley, Roode, Magnus, Bram, Team 246, Kai and Team 246 (even if 1 half of them is in the X-Division match). Honestly, I can see why they went for a Japan PPV but still, BFG is supposedly meant to be their biggest PPV (I'd say Slammiversary still is), Outbreak had a better card and really, Wrestle-1 has a lack of wrestlers who I give a shit about.

    If they were able to do a proper BFG, I'd do this:

    1) Lashley (c) vs Bobby Roode - Singles match for the TNA World Heavyweight Championship
    2) Eric Young vs MVP - Steel Cage match
    3) The Great Muta, Tajiri and Austin Aries vs Sanada, James Storm and TJ Perkins
    4) Gail Kim (c) vs Havok vs Taryn Terrell - TNA Knockouts Championship
    5) EC3, Tyrus, Magnus, Bram and Samuel Shaw vs Rockstar Spud, The Hardys, Gunner and Mr Anderson - Elimination 5-on-5 match
    6) The Wolves (c) vs Team 246 - TNA World Tag Team Championships
    7) Samoa Joe vs Low Ki vs Kenny King - X-Division Championship
