– Below is video of Jim Cornette, who is reportedly no longer with the company, promoting the November 5th Bound For Glory pay-per-view. Cornette says fans walking out of the arena after BFG will say they’ve never seen anything like it – whether their favorite won or loss, or they saw the greatest match they’ve ever seen, or the entire card was filled with excitement from top to bottom. Cornette says fans will then realize that Impact is unlike any other promotion in the United States or around the world.
