Various: Impact Bound for Glory 2021 Update, Friday’s NJPW Strong Card, Indies

Impact Wrestling Announces Special Start Time for Bound for Glory 2021

Impact Wrestling recently announced that this year’s Bound for Glory event on October 23rd in Las Vegas, Nevada will be having a special start time of 10PM EST, which is two hours later than the usual start time for Impact pay-per-view events.

PWInsider’s Mike Johnson reported that the reason for the late start time is due to Impact officials did not want their Bound for Glory 2021 event to go up directly against AEW’s Dynamite show that night. Johnson also reported that Impact officials had considered the idea of moving their event a day later to Sunday, October 24th but decided that it would not have been a viable solution.
