Chris Bey Explains Why He Re-Signed With IMPACT Wrestling

Chris Bey reveals why he re-signed with IMPACT

Chris Bey won't be heading to another promotion as it was recently announced that The Ultimate Finesser has signed a multi-year extension with IMPACT Wrestling. 

Bey initially signed full-time with IMPACT back in 2020 and while he has had one reign as X-Division Champion, the 26-year-old has yet to capture the IMPACT World Title. That is ultimately the reason Bey re-signed with IMPACT, he revealed to the Vegas Bad Boyz of Podcasting.

"I had a great time the last couple of years with IMPACT Wrestling. I'm having a great time and for me, re-signing was a no-brainer because one, there's never been a locker room I've been in that felt more like a family and two, I owe it to the kid inside who was on YouTube unboxing the IMPACT World Championship at 14 years old. I remember that day like it was yesterday," Bey said.

"I owe it to that kid to become the world champion or at least strive to face Josh Alexander or strive to face whoever may be world champion when my time comes on a big platform, on a big, marquee match. I had an opportunity two years ago against Rich Swann and I love that opportunity, I love that moment, it's one of my greatest accomplishments but if I can change anything about that night, it was the result. I should have walked out as world champion, I should've worked harder to get the world championship and I'm gonna work harder and put myself through unimaginable pain and sacrifice in order to get that championship because I know that the harder I work, that doesn't mean that the result will just come to me but the harder I work, the more prepared I'll be for when that opportunity comes."

Chris Bey unsuccessfully challenged Rich Swann for the IMPACT World Title at Final Resolution in December 2020. He won't be pursuing the world title soon, though, as Bey is currently teaming with Ace Austin in the tag team division.
