On this weeks episode of Impact Wrestling, it was officially announced that Brian Cage will defend the Impact World Championship against Sami Callihan at Bound For Glory.

Last week, Callihan stated that he was getting tired of waiting around for a title opportunity and proposed that Impact Management do something about it. Specifically, vacate the title while Cage is out, and give it to Callihan to defend. Callihan won his title shot opportunity during a number one contenders match for the Impact World Championship against Tessa Blanchard at Unbreakable last month.




Cage has been suffering from a back injury since April, after successfully winning the Impact World Championship from Johnny Impact at Rebellion. Cage was able to defend and retain the title at Slammiversary XVII against Michael Elgin back in July. However, he has not competed since.

During this week's episode, Cage made the announcement that his doctors have officially cleared him to compete in six weeks, which will be right in time for Bound For Glory. Could we possibly see Callihan take down "The Machine" and become the new Impact World Champion? On Sunday, October 20, Impact fans will find out.
