WINNER & STILL IMPACT WORLD CHAMPION: BRIAN CAGE

Elgin grabs the title & blasts Cage in the face with it, he gets in Don Callis face, Elgin tosses Callis in the ring, he looks for the Elgin Bomb when a very large man in a black ski mask runs in the ring & breaks Elgin in half with a Spear, he throws his arms up in the air then quickly exits the ring

(ok let’s address the elephant in the room here, there’s only 2 guys that do a ‘Spear’ that brutal & only one of them is still that large & it’s not Goldberg and when you consider the guy saved Callis it makes a lot of sense considering 20 years ago Callis was his manager, or perhaps I should say Cyrus the Virus, yeah it’s Rhino. Why the mask you may ask, well his WWE contract supposedly doesn’t expire until 7/17, more likely they’ve already made a deal where he’s already signed, but can’t actually show his face until after 7/17, there’s no way he’d risk appearing here if everything wasn’t already worked out, both Callis & Rhino are too smart for that)

The official Bound for Glory announcement, they’re going to Chicago
