Bound For Glory Summit w/ IMPACT World Champion Christian Cage & Josh Alexander
Josh Mathews hosts the Bound For Glory Summit with IMPACT World Champion Christian Cage and #1 contender Josh Alexander. The IMPACT Zone is empty as Mathews, Cage and Alexander sit in the middle of the ring. Alexander says that he has no regrets relinquishing the X-Division Title in exchange for an IMPACT World Title shot at Bound For Glory. Cage admits that Alexander has been overlooked, just like he has at certain points of his career. Cage goes on to say that the similarities end there and at Bound For Glory, Alexander is going to find out why no one compares to him in the ring. Alexander responds by saying that he’s followed Cage’s entire career and at Bound For Glory, he’s the wild card.

Tensions rise as Alexander tells Cage that he no longer respects him before storming out of the ring. Cage says that he just proved his point that Alexander can’t keep his emotions in check. IMPACT! goes off the air.
