Impact Wrestling presented Bound For Glory on October 23rd, 2021, but they didn’t have a lot of surprises show up as many expected. The IInspiration made their debut, but that was already announced. Rumors of Braun Strowman and Bray Wyatt coming into Impact Wrestling obviously didn’t pan out.
Fightful Select reports that Impact Wrestling tried hard to get Braun Strowman and Bray Wyatt to come in. They could not work out a deal.
Strowman and Scott D’Amore were seen meeting in public, but that deal apparently wasn’t reached. It was confirmed in the report that Strowman and Impact Wrestling had official talks, but they couldn’t make things work out in that regard.
Also, Bray Wyatt was contacted about coming into the company. It was reported that Wyatt wouldn’t have debuted for the company until after the pay-per-view.
Bray Wyatt was also contacted about possibly coming in, although he would not have been able until after Bound For Glory as his non-compete wasn’t up. We’re told that a deal to bring in Bray Wyatt to IMPACT Wrestling was never close to happening.
We will have to see where Braun Strowman and Bray Wyatt show up next. Despite all of their attempts, Impact Wrestling was unable to sign the two former WWE Superstars at this time. Bound For Glory was still an action-packed show and you can check out our coverage here.
