Countdown to TNA Bound For Glory
By JON WALDMAN -- SLAM! Wrestling





Bound For Glory has long been called TNA's most important pay-per-view of the year, and with the hype going in this year, you can certainly see that, at least for 2010, there is a great amount of importance.

Give TNA credit - you may not be a fan of all of their angles, but they have done a very good job of building them up. Plus, with announcements that are set to change the company's direction (take that as you might), there is a good possibility that some interesting dramatics will take place. With that in mind, let's take a look at what, at least on paper, looks to be a very intriguing PPV.


TNA WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP THREE-WAY MATCH

Jeff Hardy vs. Kurt Angle vs. Ken Anderson

I still don't like this match - it really should be one-on-one, and really it should be Hardy on the outside looking in. We certainly got that impression on Thursday, with the battle royal coming down to Angle and Anderson. That booking, however, in WWE, would indicate that Mr. Hardy takes the gold, and certainly there's logic to that; had it not been for the Kurt Angle retirement stip. Angle's not going anywhere anytime soon, and I don't think there's a lot of anxiousness to really play the retirement card with the recent WWE tease involving Chris Jericho. I'll take Angle, with a post-match attack by Hardy to turn him heel.
MONSTER'S BALL MATCH

Rob Van Dam vs. Abyss

The contract signing that this is Abyss's final match with TNA is obviously bogus, and in fact it makes you think that Bischoff is one of "they". The rumour has been that "they" is some sort of nWo-style takeover group, but as to who the actual personalities will be has been actually kept in a good shroud of mystery. I'm going to guess that it's a build-up of ex-WWE'ers like Haas, Carlito and Benjamin who've been speculated to be coming to TNA for a while, who will take over the company. How they differentiate themselves from other WWE imports though, is a whole other kettle of fish. I'll take Abyss here.
LETHAL LOCKDOWN MATCH

EV2 vs. Fortune

This has to be the end of ECW's faction, if for no other reason than the debuting "they" needs to look credible, and the only way to do so is to get rid of an already existing group, otherwise you have too many on the show. I'm guessing this will be a full-out drubbing by Flair's boys.
  WORLD TAG TEAM TITLE MATCH

Generation Me vs. Motor City Machine Guns
 

This was supposed to be last month's match, and had it been there would've been some good build-up with an escalation match, rather than this being the first PPV go for these two. I expect a great match here, a possible Match of the Year candidate even, but wouldn't be surprised if the best is yet to come from these four. Take the Guns here.
  KNOCKOUTS TITLE MATCH

Angelina Love vs. Velvet Sky vs. Madison Rayne vs. Tara
 

I wouldn't put it past TNA to book this match with Rayne turning on Tara, making the Beautiful People all heels going into a feud with Mickie James. Angelina retains.
  GRUDGE MATCH

Wolfpac/D'angelo Dinero vs. Jeff Jarrett/Samoa Joe
 

Bet on a mystery person to join Jarrett and Joe (Nick Hogan maybe?) to help them gain victory.
  X-DIVISION TITLE MATCH

Jay Lethal vs. Douglas Williams
 

Williams should not have lost the belt. He takes it back here tonight.
  GRUDGE MATCH

Orlando Jordon/Eric Young vs. Ink Inc.
 

This should be a dark match at best. I don't care who wins.
