We're less than 3 weeks away from TNA's biggest event of the year. And for those living under a rock, but still with enough internet access to read this article, TNA have made this years event even bigger than ever before by holding it in Tokyo. This is their first ever major Pay Per View to be held outside of North America (One Night Only doesn't count) and the fact that they are working together with The Great Mutas Wrestle-1 promotion, means this is set to be TNA's most intriguing event in years. Now TNA has come under a lot of fire from fans and critics alike over the years. It's no secret that there have been many, many stumbles over their 12 year journey but there's really no need to get into what most of us are already too familiar with. We're staying positive here so in anticipation of the October 12th spectacle, we've decided to take a look back at some of the best and most memorable matches to take place at Bound for Glory over the last nine years.
10. LAX Vs Triple X - BFG 2007
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mrWUr9W1S8o Held in Atlanta Georgia and headlined by a dream main event of Kurt Angle vs Sting, Bound for Glory III featured a very diverse card. The tag team and X-division titles were defended, a Monsters Ball match quelled the appetites of extreme wrestling fans and the first ever Knockouts Champion was crowned when Gail Kim won a 10 woman gauntlet match. However the show opened up with a tag team Ultimate X match that almost stole the show. Homicide and Hernandez teamed to face a recently reunited (and floundering) Triple X. Senshi, better known as Low Ki and Primetime Elix Skipper, better known as the guy who walked across the top of the cage at Turning Point 2004, teamed together in their last high profile match as a unit. It was a fast paced back and forth spot fest that saw a sick neck breaker from the cables and a jaw dropping cross body block by Skipper off the top of a steel support truss. Fans went wild for every spot and it seemed both teams were equally over. Hernandez ended the match with a disgusting Border Toss to the outside that looked like it may have broken Skippers neck. He then proved he could climb the cables as easily as the three smaller men, when he almost effortlessly pulled down the X to earn his team a future tag team title shot.
As a wrestling fan I've flown across the Atlantic for the last five years specifically to attend WrestleMania (28 and 30) as well as TNA, ROH, Evolve, Chikara and most recently PWG.
I may have a problem!
But if you're reading my work then you probably love wrestling too, so lets focus on that!
