Welcome to 411’s LIVE TNA BOUND FOR GLORY REPORT 10.20.13

  • Reminder, I do not rate matches that are under three minutes long…
  • Jeremy Borash welcomes us to the pre-show. He catches Dixie Carter as she arrives, and she says that AJ will not get his way. He had a chance two weeks in a row to play ball and take the money, but tonight will be a NO DQ match. “Good luck with that honey.”
  • Tenay and Taz hype the PPV by running down the card, and Taz is excited about the AJ Styles vs. Bully Ray main event.
  • We see Gail Kim, Jeff Hardy and others arriving earlier today.
  • Borash is with the teams involved in the pre-show gauntlet match. The Bro-Mans will be the final team in the match; the 3rd team will be EY and Joe Park. Chavo and Hernandez and Bad Influence will start the match.

  • We see a video for Ethan Carter III (EC3), discussing his debut tonight. I believe it was the same one from Impact.
  • The Bro-Mans say that they will win the tag gauntlet tonight and then go on to win the tag titles. Then their “Big Bro” Mr. Olympia Phil Heath appears, and he looks like he will be in their corner.
  • We get a video package to hype the Ultimate X match.
  • Bad Influence is interviewed by a new backstage announcer, Gil Corsey (of OVW fame), and they claim that they will win the gauntlet and then move onto win the tag team titles at Bound for Glory. Worship them… now!

  • We see highlights from Kurt Angle’s TNA Hall of Fame induction, including Samoa Joe, Magnus and Sting speaking about his influence on TNA and wrestling as a whole.
  • Backstage, Samoa Joe gives a pep talk to Sting and Magnus. Joe says he will bring the X-Title back to the family, and hopefully Sting and Magnus work out their issues. Kurt Angle arrives, so the family is back together. Joe says to beat some respect into Bobby Roode, and Angle promises too.

    Pre-Show Gauntlet Match For a Tag Title Shot on PPV: Eric Young and Joseph Park vs. Bad Influence vs. Bro-Man vs. Chavo and Hernandez

    Chavo and Hernandez and Bad Influence are the first two teams in the match. Chavo and Kaz to begin things, well not really as bad Influence take out Hernandez and try to double team Chavo. Hernandez makes the save quickly, and then gets the double Mexican backbreaker on Bad Influence. Hernandez then up the ramp and charges into the ring with the big dive as Chavo then hits a cross body, taking out Bad Influence. We head to a commercial.

    On the PPV channel they are showing the match without the commercial. Kaz in control on Hernandez, tags in Daniels, who delivers jabs to Hernandez. Leg lariat follows, and a cover gets 2. Kaz tags back in, Hernandez tries to battle back with rights. Gets a scary looking back breaker, tags to Chavo and Daniels. Shoulder blocks by Chavo, dropkick follows.

    OFFICIAL RESULT: Bro-Mans @ 21:00 via pin
    RATING: **

  • EY searches for Joe Park backstage. He sees blood on the wall and has found him and tells the camera crew to back off.
  • We get an AJ Styles video package.
  • Bully Ray is out now. Ray asks if we know who he is. He is Bully Ray, the world champions, and the president of Aces and 8s. Everyone thinks Aces and 8s are dead and buried, ready to implode. He has news for us, that is what eh wants us to think. Tonight is about a resurrection, and AJ Styles is bound for embarrassment, while he is bound for greatness, and Aces and 8s are bound for glory.
  • Backstage Dixie meets with Bully Ray. She asks if this will be AJ’s last night in TNA, and he just smiles at her as we hear the crowd chanting for Austin Aries.
  • Opening video package.
  • Tenay and Taz welcome us to the show.

    X-Division Title Ultimate X Match: Manik © vs. Chris Sabin w/Velvet Sky vs. Jeff Hardy vs. Austin Aries vs. Samoa Joe

    Yeah, this should be crazy. Sabin looks to climb right away, and then drops to the floor as he was surrounded. He then pulls Aries to the floor and they brawl. Jeff, Joe and Manik to the floor as well and Joe gets slammed to the steel structure. Sabin and Manik in, tree of woe by Sabin. Joe in, jabs to Sabin and then boots follow. Sabin begs off, back splash and enziguri by Joe follows. Snap mare, chop sand kicks follow. Manik in with a missile dropkick to Joe connects. Jeff and Aries climb as Manik works over Sabin.

Sabin sneaks in and dropkicks Joe in the back of the head. Jeff with the whisper in the wind on Sabin, and both men are down. Jeff now brings in a ladder, and tries to climb for the title, which I thought was against the rules. He and Joe battle on the ladder, knocks Jeff off and then Aires in with a missile dropkick to take Joe to the mat. Manik springboards onto the cables as Aries climbs, they battle for the title, but Sabin tips the ladder and causes them to crash to the mat. Sanin slams Jeff to the mat, but Jeff battles back and gets the twit of fate! Sabin asks Velvet to help and tolls her into the ring. Jeff sees her and helps her to leave, Sabin in and climbs, but he gets the title and hits Jeff with it and is the new champion.

    RATING: *** {Good match while it lasted with a bit of an anticlimactic finish. Good opener though. }

  • Velvet is not happy with how things went down.

  • They work to take down the Ultimate X structure as Tenay and Taz discuss the card for tonight’s show.
  • We see great moments in the history of AJ Styles, with the first being the night he became the first X-Division Champion.
  • Bad Influence make their way out to the ring. Kaz says that they have been screwed tonight. The fact that they are not on PPV, going for the titles in an embarrassment to TNA and to them, the best tag team in the business. Daniels says that this is Bound for Glory, the PPV that is supposed to celebrate that which is TNA. TNA has treated them poorly, but they are TNA. They are the best team the company has ever seen, and he knows a way TNA can make it up to them. They defeated Chavo and Hernandez tonight, who are former champions. EY and Joe Park aren’t even a real tag team, so the victory shouldn’t count. And while the company likes to throw swerves around, they also like to add people to matches for no reason. Based on their record, they demand they get added to the tag title match tonight.

    EY is out, and says that he is not a troublemaker. But he did beat them once already today. He is here on scientific business, Bad Influence created a monster earlier. Everyone knows that they should run right now. They shake hands with EY, but then attack him. Music hits, and Abyss is back again. Abyss hits the ring and cleans house on Bad Influence. Black Hole Slam to Daniels and then one for Kaz. Abyss then helps EY to his feet.

  • Borash is backstage with Storm and Gunner. Gunner says that they need to worry about fighting tonight. Gunner says he sees two bros, but he and Storm are the real men. Storm says they got lucky, but now they have to be good. Sorry about your damn luck.

    RATING: **¾ {Way better than I expected to be honest with you. Lack of crowd reaction hurt it, but Jesse and Robbie have potential as a team.}

  • Highlights from last night’s TNA HOF Dinner.
  • Sting is out to give Angle his TNA HOF induction. Sting puts over Angle big time, and then brings him out. Angle thanks God, his family and his fans for the induction, because it means more to him than we’ll ever know. “Thank you Angle” chants, as he thanks TNA for their supports over the years and gives Sting the mic back. Sting then says Angle is joining him in the hall of fame, and is happy to have company. Angle is given a HOF watch by Sting. “You deserve it” chants from the crowd, and Angle says that he realizes how important this is, and the responsibility that goes with it. But the truth is that he let himself, his family and peers down because he has not lived up to his potential and the standard that Sting set for the HOF. Which is why, he will decline the HOF induction. He plans to set a new standard for himself, TNA and the industry. He will accomplish even more in the future, and when he is worthy, he will join Sting in the HOF. He hands Sting the watch back and they hug.

  • AJ beating Angle for the title is the next moment they run.

Tonight, at Bound for Glory, he will prove that he is HOF worthy, he will make Angle tap out, because it pays to be Roode.

He wants him to drive back to the trailer park in Georgia, look his wife and kids in the face, and see the disappointment in their eyes.
