TNA Bound For Glory
Bound for Glory is a professional wrestling pay-per-view (PPV) event produced every October by the American Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (TNA) promotion. The event was created in 2005 to be their premier event of the year, similar to the company's main rival World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) and its WrestleMania event. As of May 2013, eight events have occurred under the chronology.
Since its inception in 2005, all events have been held in the United States. It has been held in five different U.S. states, where every event has been held in an indoor arena. Each event featured wrestlers from TNA competing in various professional wrestling match types. Since the inaugural event, seven championship matches have taken place in the main event. Sting has competed in the four main event match matches, in which he has won either one of two world heavyweight championships TNA has controlled—the NWA World Heavyweight, owned by the National Wrestling Alliance (NWA) governing body, and the TNA World Heavyweight Championship.
Bound for Glory pay-per-views, like other professional wrestling shows, feature matches that are prearranged by the promotion's writing staff. These matches are non-competitive performances that combine elements of catch wrestling, mock combat, and theatre. Leading up to the pay-per-view, wrestlers are portrayed as either villains or heroes in the scripted events that build tension and culminate in a wrestling match at the event.
Famous quotes containing the words bound and/or glory:
“People named John and Mary never divorce. For better or for worse, in madness and in saneness, they seem bound together for eternity by their rudimentary nomenclature. They may loathe and despise one another, quarrel, weep, and commit mayhem, but they are not free to divorce. Tom, Dick, and Harry can go to Reno on a whim, but nothing short of death can separate John and Mary.”
—John Cheever (19121982)
“When I survey the wondrous cross
On which the Prince of Glory died,
My richest gain I count but loss,
And pour contempt on all my pride.”
—Isaac Watts (16741748)
