Rich Swann wins Impact World Championship at Bound for Glory

Rich Swann is the new Impact World champion.

He defeated Eric Young for the championship tonight at Bound for Glory. The finish had Swann escape from a tree of woe position in the corner, cutting off Young with a cutter. He followed with the lethal injection then finished off Young with the phoenix splash for the win.

This marks Swann’s first reign with the championship. Young held the title for 70 days, defeating Eddie Edwards on the August 15, 2020 edition of Impact Wrestling.

The feud started when Young was eliminated from a five way match for the World title at Slammiversary by Swann. That caused Young to viciously attack Swann’s leg, which had been previously injured. Swann intended to retire following an in-ring speech on Impact, but Young once again viciously attacked Swann's leg. Swann soon resurfaced and attacked Young, setting up the Bound for Glory match.

Two other titles changed hands tonight: The North regained the Impact Tag Team titles, while Su Yung regained the Knockouts title.
