Say what you will about TNA's booking but Impact Wrestling has always been the home of "something different," be it Ultimate X, the Knockouts or guys like Samoa Joe, AJ Styles and Austin Aries.
They're not always successful but Dixie Carter and company do frequently attempt to innovate and the Bound for Glory Series is no different.
In a world without King of the Ring, last year's BFGS, a long-form tournament to determine a number one contender at the Bound For Glory pay-per-view, seemed like a breath of fresh air.
We all saw potential in the five-month extravaganza but injuries to a third of the participants and TNA's inability to maintain momentum quickly derailed the promising concept.
This year's tournament is well underway. TNA hasn't changed anything about their methods, however, and several holes in the design will inevitably lead to a repeat sinking of the boat.
