Ken Anderson defeated Joseph Park in a Bound For Glory Series Match. What can you say about this match besides "boring." Anderson and Park are just not a good pairing in the ring together. Both men lack the flow and chemistry of putting on a great match. Anderson took control early with a few strikes, but Park hit a few side slams to get in control. I cannot begin to tell you how much I dislike that character. His cheesy and fake cheers for himself make me want to break my television. DOC helps Anderson pick up the win, and they argue backstage after. In the entire group, why is dissension between Anderson and DOC? Make it guys we actually care about.

Grade: C-

Austin Aries defeated Jay Bradley in a Bound For Glory Series Match. This match was pretty decent. I actually enjoy a few parts of the match because of what Aries is capable of doing. Aries hits him with knees to the stomach early in the match and sends it to the outside. It was a very aggressive attack from the smaller opponent. Bradley was able to hit a beautiful boot to the face of Aries, sending him to the outside. The match will not be remembered, but it was just a good wrestling match pitting size and strength vs. intellgence and speed.

Grade: B

Daniels defeated Hernandez in a Bound For Glory Series Match. Daniels and Hernandez were booked very simplistic in this match. It was your classic big man getting a few powerful moves, followed by a comeback from Daniels, and resorting to a low blow to finish him off. Daniels is really good on the microphone, but I do feel like he is stagnant in the ring. He continues to do the same moves and is very predictable. When was the last time he actually mixed up his moves? I assume that is what all wrestlers do come to think of it.

Grade: C

Magnus defeated Kazarian in a Bound For Glory Series Match. It is easy to see why the crowd is connecting to Magnus. He has this look and intensity in the ring that is really believable. His facial expressions really carry him a ways. I enjoyed the submission moves onto Magnus, how Magnus was able to break free with his strength, and then hits a beautiful inverted Samoan Drop. Magnus and Kazarian paced the match out perfectly. Magnus would have Kazarian tap out to the Texas Cloverleaf, a submission move that I think is vastly underrated.

Grade: B
