Rich Swann Wins IMPACT World Championship

Rich Swann

Rich Swann was crowned IMPACT World Champion at Bound For Glory, defeating Eric Young in the main event!

Swann’s win confirmed the third title change of the night, with The North winning the Tag Team Championships and Swann’s real-life wife Su Yung winning the Knockouts Championship after replacing Kylie Rae in the match.

Swann’s battle with Eric Young has been a long and arduous one. At Slammiversary, a multi-person match was confirmed for the vacant World Championship. The mystery competitor was revealed to be Rich Swann – before Eric Young returned to the company to enter the match, too. Swann eliminated Young, and Young retaliated by injuring Swann. Eric Young since became World Champion by defeating the winner of the match at Slammiversary – Eddie Edwards. However, simultaneously, Young was making Swann’s life a misery, even injuring him to the point of near-retirement.

At Bound For Glory, the story came full circle as Rich Swann beat Eric Young for the IMPACT World Championship.

Bound For Glory was full of surprises, with The Rock, Mick Foley and Bret Hart appearing to congratulate Ken Shamrock on his Hall of Fame induction earlier in the evening. Meanwhile, James Storm, Swoggle and Shawn Daivari all returned to the company in the Call Your Shot Battle Royal.
