BOUND FOR GLORY 2018 – MELROSE BALLROOM – QUEENS, NY
Only one title changed hands at Bound for Glory on Sunday night, but it was the biggest of them all.
It’s the first Impact World Championship for Johnny, who’s had quite a 2018.
On top of appearing as a contestant on this season of Survivor, he also got married to fellow wrestler Taya Valkyrie in June. She was on hand to help him celebrate his career-defining win.
Valkyrie had been drawn in to the storyline of this match by some very real comments Aries made on social media. This led to some sniping on Twitter and TMZ, and eventually, a fiery confrontation during the company’s Hall of Fame ceremonies on Saturday night, where Aries and Impact had to be separated.
— Notably, after Aries lost the match at BFG, he quickly stormed out out the arena.
Other highlights of the night: Willie Mack teams with Rich Swann to open the show… LAX take on The OGz in an unusual, hardcore-style matchup… the Allie vs. Su Yung saga gets even more ‘dramatic’… Tessa Blanchard and Taya Valkyrie have a classic contest for the Women’s Championship… Read the Full Results HERE
