(August 19, 2022) – The main event for BOUND FOR GLORY© is set: Josh Alexander will defend the IMPACT Wrestling World Championship in a one-on-one showdown against two-time former World Champion and new No.1 contender, Eddie Edwards.
The World Championship main event headlines IMPACT Wrestling’s showcase pay-per-view event of its historic 20th anniversary year. BOUND FOR GLORY© takes place in Albany, New York on Friday, October 7 (8pm ET/ 5pm PT).
Edwards cemented his status at the top contender to Alexander’s World Championship by winning a six-way showdown on last night’s edition of IMPACT! The leader of the cult-like Honor No More faction has reigned as TNA/IMPACT World Champion twice before, pinning Bobby Lashley in 2016 and most recently winning the then-vacated title at Slammiversary 2020.
IMPACT Wrestling Executive Vice-President Scott D’Amore said: “Fans should get ready for one of the most exciting matches in BOUND FOR GLORY history. I’ll say it again – Josh Alexander is the greatest wrestler in the world right now. His performances since reaching World Title level at last year’s BOUND FOR GLORY have been incredible – and he’ll need to deliver again in Albany.”
D'Amore added: “Eddie Edwards is having one of the best years of his great career. He’s arguably better than ever as the leader of Honor No More, and while I don’t necessarily enjoy dealing with Honor No More on a personal level, it is impossible not to recognize what Edwards has done in the ring in 2022. I expect a classic main event from these two come October 7th.”
