Bound For Glory Series Cut Short, Final Reguar Matches Set For Thursday

According to Meltzer’s site:

The entire thing is a mess because time is running out and of the 11 matches that would be necessary for each guy in a 12 man round-robin tournament, the guys have ranged from four to six matches completed with time running out.

So they are essentially dropping everything, doing the four matches this coming Thursday, and ending it from there with the top four point getters going to the 9/12 final four show.…r-glory-series

The current standings (number of matches in parentheses:

1. Magnus – 39 (7)
2. Bobby Roode – 34 (8)
3. Christopher Daniels – 30 (6)
4. Austin Aries – 28 (7)
5. Samoa Joe – 26 (9)
6. Jeff Hardy – 24 (7)
6. Mr. Anderson – 24 (9)
8. AJ Styles – 22 (8)
8. Kazarian – 22 (7)
10. Joseph Park – 17 (8)
11. Hernandez – 7 (7)
12. Jay Bradley – 0 (7)

So apparently the Series is out of time, given that the finals are scheduled for two weeks from this Thursday at the No Surrender special. Yes, amazingly enough you can’t have 12 guys wrestle 11 matches each in the span of a month. Basically everyone is about 2/3 of the way through their matches but the totals are going to be all over the place due to the inconsistencies. But at least we got to promote Ortiz vs. Jackson for another company.

Can this company go a week without something screwing up?

    Nope, they cannot.

    Well here are the matches for Thursday:

    – AJ Styles vs. Bobby Roode
    – Austin Aries vs. Christopher Daniels
    – Hernandez vs. Kazarian

    Magnus is a lock, Roode makes it in barring a DQ loss, and I’ll go with Aries and Daniels as well.

    If AJ gets Roode to tap out and Daniels beats Aries then I can see AJ winning the whole thing.
