As expected from the moment he was denied a contract in a Gut Check segment and took to the Internet for a viral campaign, Joey Ryan has been officially signed for a match (on television).
Because his original rival, Tazz, was none too keen on climbing back inside the ring for one more match, Al Snow was chosen to take his place. He and Ryan have been building their feud for weeks on end in various spots that had Ryan shoot punching Snow and Snow shoot slapping Ryan.
On tonight's (Oct. 4) episode of Impact Wrestling, Snow presented Ryan with a contract and once he signed, revealed it was for one night and one match only.
That night will be Oct. 14 and that match will be against Snow at the Grand Canyon University Arena in Phoenix, Arizona, at Bound for Glory.
It's certainly no feature attraction but Ryan has done well to get himself over in the lead up to his big debut match at the biggest show of the year. We'll see what he can do with it.
Here's the updated Bound for Glory line up:
- Jeff Hardy vs. Austin Aries
- Christopher Daniels and Kazarian vs. Chavo Guerrero and Kazarian vs. AJ Styles and Kurt Angle
- Bobby Roode vs. James Storm
- Tara vs. Miss Tessmacher
- Joey Ryan vs. Al Snow
