Ken Shamrock vs. Eddie Edwards has been made official for Bound for Glory.
A storyline has been unfolding on Impact in recent weeks where Shamrock has been listening to Sami Callihan, who is looking to exert control over Shamrock. Callihan’s goal is to unlock the same uncontrollable Shamrock from earlier days in Shamrock's career.
The match was made after Callihan issued a challenge on Twitter, writing: "I love when a plan comes together. Since @TheEddieEdwards lost his rematch to @TheEricYoung , which I knew he would. It looks like he’s free at #BoundForGlory. HERE’S MY CHALLENGE. Eddie Vs. @ShamrockKen at BFG. BOOK IT!"
This past week, Shamrock felt bad about attacking Edwards the previous week. Callihan hyped him up, saying that the attack was 'trending' and that eventually he’ll revert to the old Ken Shamrock. Callihan got Shamrock worked up enough that Shamrock ended up attacking a passerby.
