TNA Impact is back tonight (Oct. 6, 2016) from Orlando, Florida and will be airing on Pop TV at 8 EST. This is your spot for the live updates and to talk about it with your fellow fans.
Tonight is the fallout show for Bound for Glory. Nothing has officially been announced, but champions Bobby Lashley, Gail Kim, the Broken Hardys, Aron Rex, and DJ Z will likely be active in one sense or another. Plus Cody Rhodes' feud with Mike Bennett should see some time as well.
We'll be here at 8 EST when Impact will be starting, so come join us!
They play a recap video package for Bound for Glory.
Champions promo segment
The show opens with Lashley, who calls himself the realest man in the wrestling business and the #1 person in TNA. As he's calling himself the greatest wrestler on the planet, Aron Rex interrupts. Lashley turned his back to Rex when he enters.
Rex said that he changed the game at BFG by becoming the first Impact Grand champion, which makes him the man around here. As they argue about who's title means more, Gail Kim comes out. The Knockouts champ said that she is proud of being the first ever TNA Hall of Famer and the KO's champion and that women are changing the game.
Broken Matt comes out wearing both tag titles with Reby and Maxel (who gets his own chant). The Broken One says that while Gail speaks of change, he is change. Now because of him, Impact is part of the Broken Universe!
As expected, DJ Z is the last time come out. He talks about how all the champs represent something different and unique, none more than the X Division. And tonight he's going to introduce Team X Gold.
Lashley says that he has a fight coming up, so he's going to go train for that instead of standing in the ring with second rate title holds.
Billy Corgan and Aiden O'Shea (??) come out. Corgan is no longer rocking a suit but instead a hoodie and jacket. He says they'll all be in competition tonight. All but the X Division title will be on the line. He says that Lashley has a chance to pick from three men.

Moose is revealed about one of the possible opponents for Lashley tonight.
Fact of Life with Eli Drake
He now has a talk show set up. He says his guest tonight had a rocket so far up his ass that he spit up rocket fuel but he squandered his opportunity: Choke Artist EC3.
He asks EC3 about not quite getting it done Sunday, but when Carter starts talking, Drake starts spamming the Dummy button, until Carter covers it with his hand. He then talks about how he did lose and he's not going to make an excuse. His passion has been replaced with anger and vengeance. EC3 tells Drake that now that he's Bound for Gold, he shouldn't be worried about the dumb button. In fact, if Eli Drake hits it again, Carter says he'll eviscerate him.
He pleads for Drake to press the button so he can kick his ass. Drake just slides it aside instead, stands up, and cuts a promo on Carter. He says when he came to TNA, he was put as the third member of some dumb group called the Rising. But now he's Bound for Gold, but he still hears he's not in EC3's league. He tells Carter that Drake had to scratch and claw more than Ethan can dream and that makes Carter out of his league. Then he tells them to cut EC's mic because this is over.
Backstage, Maria is berating Allie about why she opened her mouth on Sunday about the doctor. Maria threatens to fire her but Sienna and Laurel Van Ness stop her. LVN wants Allie around to carry her bags while Sienna is going to use her to try to win her championship back tonight.
Eddie Edwards is announced as the second possible opponent for Lashley tonight.

After the match, Sienna attacks Gail. Lauren Van Ness joins her and Maria comes into the ring to watch. Maria tells Gail she's got her rematch and it will be no DQ.
Then she instructs Allie to slap her. Allie doesn't, so she shoves her and does it herself.
Maria Kanellis tries to go into Corgan's office. Aiden O'Shea stopped her and saying that Corgan has decided she has her rematch. If Maria doesn't win, she'll lose the Leader of the Knockouts title.
Baron Dax vs. Aron Rex (c) in a Grand Championship match
Round One: Rex has control early but around the 2 minute mark, Dax uses a neck breaker to take control. While Rex tries to fight back, Dax maintains control. Aron tries to fight back again, but it's not enough as Dax is all over Rex as the round concludes.

Round Two: Dax is back on the offense when the round starts. However, Rex is able to quickly lock in a modified Sharpshooter, which forces Dax to tap.
