MAJOR UPDATE REGARDING TONIGHT'S BFG SERIES MATCHES
Tonight on Impact Wrestling on Spike TV is “Must Win Thursday” in the BFG Series. Each year, the BFG Series pits 12 wrestlers in a series of matches with the top four moving on to the BFG Series Final Four at No Surrender (Sept 12th in St. Louis). Last year, the series was held under Round Robin rules with the eventual winner being Jeff Hardy.
In 2013, the BFG series shifted to bring more of the series to Spike TV and include the Joker’s Wild (Random Draw Tag Team Tournament), Hardcore Justice (Fourway Hardcore Matches) and the Fan Choice event (allowing you to pick the BFG card). The 2013 BFG Series has provided each talent the same amount of opportunities to earn the same amount of points. By the end of this week’s BFG Series matches (after this coming week’s Xplosion show), each wrestler was scheduled to have had seven one-on-one matches with one exception.
Magnus, due to an unforeseen issue, will not be appearing on tonight’s Impact Wrestling on Spike TV. Magnus currently has competed in 5 matches and was scheduled to face Kazarian on Xplosion this week and Jeff Hardy on Spike TV tonight. Due to the circumstances, TNA officials have met and made the following decision:
Magnus will stand with his current total of 39 points. Jeff Hardy and Kazarian will face each other tonight on Impact Wrestling on Spike TV to make up their originally scheduled match with Magnus. Also the originally scheduled Kazarian vs. Hernandez match will move to Xplosion this week.
“Must Win Thursday“ tonight will now feature three matches with serious implications on the BFG Series Final Four scheduled for No Surrender in St. Louis; Austin Aries vs. Christopher Daniels, Jeff Hardy vs. Frankie Kazarian, and AJ Styles vs. Bobby Roode. Tune in tonight at 9/8c for all this and the return of Hulk Hogan on Spike TV.
