TNA Bound for Glory Results
TNA plays an intro package for tonight's Bound for Glory PPV, and we cut to the arena! Taz and Mike Tenay welcome us to the biggest event of the year, and we are live from the Crand Canyon University Arena in Phoenix, AZ!
**Due to technical difficulties, the following match results are courtesy of ProWrestling.net:
The live crowd was hot for RVD and was into chanting along with his song. They broke into a loud "RVD" chant before the bell. Van Dam jumped out to a fast start and did the RVD thumb pointing routine without it coming back to haunt him.
Ion came back with a good tornado DDT and followed up by shoving him off the top rope to the floor. Ion performed a wild flip over the top rope and landed on Van Dam. RVD came back by throwing Ion into the air and catching him with a dropkick to the chest on the way down. Cool move. RVD followed up with Rolling Thunder and connected with a Five Star Frogsplash for the clean win…
Rob Van Dam defeated Zema Ion to win the X Division Title in 8:05.
