TNA’s October PPV, “Bound For Glory,” will feature Monster’s Ball 2, a no-rules match that will involve many weapons. The inaugural Monster’s Ball match, which took place at TNA’s “Victory Road” PPV in November 2004, saw Monty Brown defeat Raven and Abyss. One of the stipulations was that the competitors be locked inside a room for 24 hours with no food, water or lights.
