10 Ups & 3 Downs From Impact Wrestling (Sep 15)

If you took one thing from this week's Impact Wrestling, just one thing, it's that Rich Swann can cut one hell of a promo when the situation calls for it.

The former X Division Champion begged Scott D'Amore to give him the one match he wanted - a World Championship clash with Eric Young at next month's Bound For Glory pay-per-view. That was the main takeaway from this week, with D'Amore eventually granting Swann his wish.

In other Bound For Glory-related moments, Kylie Rae and Susie scored a win over Deonna Purrazzo and Kimber Lee ahead of Rae's eventual challenge for Purrazzo's Knockouts Championship, while Ace Austin scored the fall in the main event by pinning one half of the reigning World Tag Team Champions, putting himself and Madman Fulton at the top of the pecking order. Ethan Page's face afterwards told a whole story in itself following the actions of 'The Inevitable'.

Elsewhere, The Deaners and XXXL brought their Wrestle House rivalry to the Impact Zone, the line of challengers for Rohit Raju's X Division Championship continued to grow with the addition of Trey Miguel, Moose made a call to someone else who had their championship stolen, and Kiera Hogan scored the biggest win of her Impact career thus far.
