Impact notes: Two new Thursday matches, Acey Romero released

Impact announced two new matches for this Thursday's AXS show, one of which will determine the final entrant into the three-way at Bound for Glory for the vacant X-Division title.

The final three-way will be Willie Mack vs. Rohit Raju vs. El Phantasmo. Both Mack and Raju are former X-Division champions while Phantasmo is looking for his first run with Impact gold.

The winner will take on Steve Maclin and Trey Miguel at the Saturday, October 23rd pay-per-view.

Rich Swann vs. VSK has also been added to Thursday's lineup. Swann and Mack defeated Brian Myers and VSK recently, but were jumped by them and Sam Beale last week.

Chris Bey vs. Chris Sabin and a 20-man battle royal with the winner earning the no. 20 slot and the final eliminated participant earning the no. 1 slot in the Call Your Shot gauntlet match at Bound for Glory are also set for Thursday.
