Kenny King vs Frankie Kazarian

Before Frankie Kazarian challenges Mike Bailey for the X-Division Title tomorrow night at Bound For Glory, he must get through the man he pinned to become #1 Contender, Kenny King! Kazarian counters an early Royal Flush attempt into a strong clothesline. King avoids a leg drop on the apron, then hits a slingshot crossbody to the outside. Kazarian turns the tide with a belly-to-belly suplex into the corner turnbuckles. Kazarian hits the springboard leg drop for two. King drives him face-first into the turnbuckle, then connects with a T-Bone suplex out of the corner. King almost puts Kazarian away with the Tiger Driver but it’s still not enough. Kazarian locks in a choke to win by submission!

Knockouts World Champion Jordynne Grace & Masha Slamovich Sign the Contract for Bound For Glory

IMPACT Executive Vice President Scott D’Amore facilitates the contract signing for the Knockouts World Championship match between Jordynne Grace and Masha Slamovich at Bound For Glory. The champion and challenger make their way to the ring and sit across from each other at the table. When asked to deliver a final address, Slamovich remains silent and signs the contract. Grace does have something to say, however, and tells Slamovich that while she may be undefeated, she’s not a two-time Knockouts World Champion, former Knockouts World Tag Team Champion and first-ever Digital Media Champion. That makes Grace the first Knockout ever to become a Triple Crown Champion. Grace says that Slamovich has never had the opportunity to learn from losing and at Bound For Glory, she’s going to teach her that difficult lesson. Slamovich utters “Masha’s going to kill you” in Russian before flipping the table on top of Grace. Slamovich Snowplows Grace through the table and stands tall to end the show.

The final IMPACT! before Bound For Glory goes off the air.
