Impact World title match announced for Bound for Glory

A Impact World title match has been announced for Bound for Glory.

Eric Young will defend the title against Rich Swann. After announcing his retirement following the events of Slammiversary, Swann told Scott D’Amore tonight on Impact that he wanted to unretire and face Young for the championship, as it was Young that destroyed his knee at Slammiversary back in June. Young also attacked Swann after Swann announced his retirement on Impact weeks later.

D’Amore told Swann that he was not cleared by the doctors. Swann countered that he would be ready by Bound for Glory, and that he already has a pin over Young, as it was him who eliminated Young at Slammiversary. He told D’Amore that he didn’t care if he ended up crippled, he wanted the World title match.

Young then came down and struck D’Amore, leading Swann to attack Young, forcing Young to retreat. D’Amore then announced the title match for Bound for Glory.

Bound for Glory will take place on October 24.
