Sabin/KENTA was a nice solid opener. Thought it'd go a little longer, surprised Sabin got the win when he did. Monster's Ball was fun, surprised PCO got the win if he's on the way out but I guess if they write him out it will be on Impact.

Ospreay/Speedball was absolutely epic, lived up to all expectations.  Loved the superkick exchange leading into the outta nowhere Hidden Blade. Speedball's rana counter was so perfectly smooth. Ospreay busting out the Styles Clash. Finishing sequence was killer. Amazing match, definite showstealer.

Call Your Shot is always fun, pretty good surprise entrants.  Only terrible disappointment of the night was the Knockouts Tag titles getting bumped off to dark match status, was looking forward to that one. 

Trinity vs. Mickie was pretty good.  Great main event, absolutely shocked by the outcome with Shelley retaining straight up just using his finish. Thought it would take a lot more to put Josh down. 

The ending vignette/announcement was odd but I guess TNA is BACK!


Full results BFG:

Holy crap! For whatever reason, Bound For Glory is available on DAZN with no extra cost! Yeah, I'm so there! I may have to continue later on, but this was a wonderful surprise!

Watched this until the end of Osprway vs Bailey! Damn, everything was stellar up to this point, but I needed a break to stop my brain from boiling, after that one!

Ospreay vs Speedball did not dissapoint!

Juggernaut Jordan and Trinity with huge wins!

Alex Shelley seems to be in a phenomenal shape, Walking Weapon seems to be his usual cyborg self. Between the main event, X-division opener, the insane tag title match AND Ospreay vs Bailey, this was definitely worth every penny, especially for free like this!


Oh, and Shelley legitimized his reign here with a big win. Just hoping that Moose won't ruin things for him at Hard to Kill!

Shelley is legit now!
