IMPACT Wrestling is teaming up with Warrior Wrestling, Zelo Pro, OVW, Galli Lucha Libre, Black Label Pro and The Wrestling Revolver to bring their top athletes and the fans a night they’re never going to forget. On the eve of Bound for Glory, IMPACT Wrestling is hosting All Glory – an event that allows fans to engage and interact with IMPACT Wrestling’s loaded roster, watch Chicago’s top local talent compete LIVE, plus more events. The show will air on Impact Wrestling Twitch channel at 7 PM ET (to be confirmed).

All Glory gives you the chance to get up close and personal with IMPACT Wrestling’s stars and Knockouts in an intimate, fun, and unforgettable setting you’ll only be able to experience on Saturday, October 19 at 115 Bourbon Street in Merrionette Park. Hemi will be playing. SRG will be displaying their incredible card game, Sami Callihan is hosting a Video Game Tournament and Chicago will be out to see some of the best local wrestling the midwest has to offer.

It’s the biggest event of the year. IMPACT Wrestling’s Bound for Glory is coming to Chicago’s Odeum Expo Center on Sunday, October 20 (8 PM ET – 1 AM BST, available on Fite TV), and will feature the very best of IMPACT Wrestling from top to bottom. You know the drill… IMPACT Wrestling pay-per-views are the best in the biz, and this year’s Bound for Glory is shaping up to be the absolute best show of 2019.

Brian Cage defends the IMPACT Wrestling World Title against his arch-rival and Number 1 Contender Sami Callihan. Callihan defeated Tessa Blanchard to earn the right to face Cage for the title and now they clash in Chicago. Will Cage be at 100% entering this match? Will Sami Callihan become the face of the franchise? Marufuji from Pro Wrestling NOAH in Japan returns to IMPACT Wrestling to clash with Michael Elgin. Elgin issued the challenge and now these two men will have a Dream Match on the biggest night of the year! Can Elgin cement his place in IMPACT Wrestling history? Will Marufuji head back to Japan with a victory at Bound For Glory?

Ken Shamrock is the first-ever IMPACT Wrestling World Champion and a UFC Hall of Famer. Moose is a former NFL Offensive Lineman who wants to be Mr. IMPACT Wrestling. Something has to give at Bound For Glory. The trash-talking has been intense and on Sunday, October 20th in Chicago, something must give. The Rascalz will have to train and prepare like never before if they want to be ready for Dr. Wagner Jr., Aerostar and Taurus from AAA that he plans to bring to Chicago for Bound For Glory on the 20th of October. Can The Rascalz pull off a Windy City Miracle?

Taya Valkyrie will defend her Knockouts Championship against Tenille Dashwood. Taya is the longest reigning Champion of all time and Tenille comes in with momentum and a resume that rivals anyone on the roster. Something has to give on the 20th at Bound For Glory. Can The North retain their World Tag Team Titles against 2 teams? RVD and Rhino are beloved by everyone and will have the crowd on their sides! The same can be said for Swann and Mack! Needless to say, Chicago will want to see new Champions crowned at Bound For Glory.

There will be a 5-Way X-Division Ladder Match at Bound For Glory this Sunday and the Champion, Jake Crist is in trouble. It is hard enough defending your title against one person, but throw in multiple bodies and suspend the physical Championship high above the ring for anyone to grab and it becomes chaos! So while Jake Crist worries about his title, he has to also worry about Tessa Blanchard, Daga, Ace Austin and a 4th opponent. Good luck, Jake. We are sure the oVe member will come to Chicago with a plan and that might involve his brother Dave Crist or Madman Fulton, but will they be busy worrying about Sami Callihan and his quest to become World Champion?

Call Your Shot. It is a powerful opportunity. We start with 2 athletes and every minute another wrestler joins the match. You are eliminated when you are thrown over the top rope and both feet touch the floor. When we are down to the final 2 it becomes a traditional wrestling match and you can win by pinfall or submission. After that, win and you get to challenge for any Championship on the IMPACT Wrestling roster. The Call Your Shot Gauntlet is open to men and women and this match will catapult the career of one lucky winner. Who will it be? Find out Sunday at Bound For Glory.
