By @B_Rock1978

Wrestling Lockup with Brandon, brought to you by Triple Threat CLE, brings you the TNA Bound For Glory 2015 recap.

- This year's Bound For Glory took place at the Cabbarus Arena and Events Center in Concord, North Carolina. Some highlights of the show included: TNA World Heavyweight Champion Ethan Carter III defending the title against Drew Galloway and Matt Hardy, with Jeff Hardy serving as special guest referee. Gail Kim renews an old rivalry and defends the TNA Knockout's Championship against Awesome Kong. The Ultimate X Match and Gauntlet Match returned, one to crown a TNA X Division Champion, the other to crown a new #1 Contender to the TNA World Heavyweight Championship. Kurt Angle returns, after having a tumor removed from his neck. All that and a lot more.

- Tigre Uno defeated Manik, Andrew Everett and DJ Z, to retain the TNA X-Division Championship, in an Ultimate X Match: The match closes out with Everett hitting a springboard shooting star, taking everyone out. Everett climbs the cables, but Manik follows and lands some kicks. Manik and DJ Z trade shots until Everett hits a 630 Splash on both. Uno is next up and lands a 450 Splash onto the floor, taking everyone out. Everett and Manik are back on the cables trading blows. Everett kicks Manik off as Uno begins climbing across the cables. Uno lands a kick on Everett, slams him off the cables to the mat, grabs the TNA X-Division Championship and walks out still the champion. After the match, "Sugar" Shane Helms walks to the ring and gets in Uno's face. We have a stare down for a split second until Helms extends his hand and shakes Uno's hand out of respect.

- Tyrus wins the Bound For Gold Gauntlet Match: Al Snow and Head make a surprise appearance in the match. Mahabali Shera gets everyone to dance with him to his music in the middle of the match. ECW Icon Tommy Dreamer makes an appearance in the match. The Pope returns to the ring as a surprise entrant. Abyss and Tyrus are in the ring waiting for The Pope. The Pope sees this, thinks twice and eliminates himself. The final four came down to Jesse Godderz, Tommy Dreamer, Mr. Anderson and Tyrus. Dreamer is the first one tossed over the ropes and eliminated. Godderz is tossed out next and we're down to Tyrus and Anderson as the final two.
Tyrus hits a running splash on Anderson, picks up the victory and becomes the #1 Contender to the TNA World Heavyweight Championship. After the match, the TNA World Champion, Ethan Carter, arrives and applauded Tyrus for his victory. EC3 encourages Tyrus to cash in his title shot for a TNA World Tag Team Championship Match. Tyrus says he fought hard, is tired, has taken a lot of bullets for EC3, but he won this on his own and is gunning for EC3 and the TNA World Title. EC3 looks stunned by Tyrus' decision.

- The Wolves defeated Brian Myers and Trevor Lee, by pinfall, to retain the TNA World Tag Team Championship: The match closes out with The Wolves landing suicide dives on Lee and Myers. Davey Richards hits a double stomp on Lee, covers, but Myers breaks up the pinfall. Lee lands a german suplex on Richards. Richards is back up, sends Myers into the barricade on the floor and goes for a superplex on Lee. Myers stops it, but Eddie Edwards leaps over Lee and hurricanranas Myers. Richards hits the superplex on Lee as Myers is tossed to the floor. Edwards and Richards hit their double team cutter on Lee, cover, score the pinfall and retain the TNA World Tag Team Championship.

- Bobby Roode defeated Bobby Lashley, by pinfall, to retain the TNA King of the Mountain Championship: The match closes out with Lashley getting a near fall with the spear. Roode hits a surprise Roode Bomb and gets a near fall on Lashley. Roode and Lashley trade punches back and forth until Roode locks Lashley in the Crossface submission. Lashley powers out, lifts Roode up on his shoulders and plants Roode with his own Roode Bomb finisher. Lashley gets a near fall on the stolen finisher. Roode ends up countering a Lashley move, hits the Roode Bomb, covers and scores the pinfall to retain the TNA King of the Mountain Championship.

- Backstage, Matt Hardy says this year has been crazy, his goal was to be a tag team champion with Jeff Hardy in TNA, which was accomplished and now tonight in front of his family and friends in North Carolina he wants to become the TNA World Heavyweight Champion.

- Smashing Pumpkins lead singer and TNA writer, Billy Corgan, introduces TNA referee Earl Hebner and a highlight video plays for Hebner. Hebner was inducted into the TNA Hall of Fame.

- Gail Kim defeated Awesome Kong, by pinfall, to retain the TNA Knockout's Championship: The match closes out with Kong tossing Gail to the floor and grabbing a steel chair. Gail's husband, Robert Irvine, yells at referee Earl Hebner to stop Kong. Hebner and Irvine argue back and forth as Kong hits an Implant Buster on Gail, right on the chair. Back in the ring, Kong goes for the power bomb, but Gail counters and hits a hurricanrana. Gail goes for Eat Defeat, but catches a Kong spinning back fist instead. Gail is stunned, but somehow is able to hit Eat Defeat out of nowhere. Gail covers, scores the pinfall and leaves still the TNA Knockout's Champion.

- Backstage, Jeff Hardy states that he quit TNA, but Dixie Carter brought him back to referee the TNA World Heavyweight Championship match. Hardy says EC3 can't buy his way out of this and Tyrus won't help him.

- Kurt Angle defeated Eric Young, by submission, in a No DQ Match: One point in the match, EY drills Angle with the piledriver and Angle rolls to the floor grabbing his neck. TNA Medical check on Angle, the TNA doctor calls the match off and helps Angle backstage. EY attacks the doctors and drags Angle back to the ring. EY continues to work over Angle's head and neck area as it appears the match has continued. The match closes out with EY hitting the top rope elbow, stomps on Angle's neck and hits another top rope elbow. EY goes for another piledriver, but Angle counters into the grapevined Ankle Lock submission. EY grabs the ropes to try to escape. Angle pulls EY back into the middle of the ring, reapplies the grapevined Ankle Lock submission and makes EY tap out for the victory.

- Matt Hardy defeated Ethan Carter and Drew Galloway, by pinfall, to win the TNA World Heavyweight Championship, in a Triple Threat Match, with Jeff Hardy serving as special guest referee: The match closes out with EC3, Matt and Galloway trading punches with each other. EC3 hits the One Percenter on both Matt and Galloway and gets near falls on both. EC3 has some unkind words for Jeff Hardy and his refereeing skills, which leads to EC3 shoving Jeff. EC3 low blows Galloway in front of Jeff and dares him to DQ EC3. EC3 grabs a steel chair next and tells Jeff his brothers blood will be on his hands.
Jeff grabs the chair and tells EC3 to finish the match like a man. EC3 slaps Jeff in the face and Jeff lays EC3 out with a chair shot. Matt meanwhile hits the Twist Of Fate on Galloway and covers. Jeff counts the pinfall and Matt Hardy wins the TNA World Heavyweight Championship. After the match, Jeff Hardy, Matt's wife Reby Sky, their child and Father Hardy all celebrate in the ring with Matt.

- Backstage, Ethan Carter finds Dixie Carter and Executive Vice President of TNA, John Gaburick. EC3 punches Gaburick, sending him over a table and then gets in his Aunt's face. EC3 backs down and walks off. Bound For Glory ends with another shot of the ring with the Hardy Family celebrating.
