Josh Alexander Issues Challenge To AEW For IMPACT Bound For Glory 2021
Alexander is gunning for AEW's best wrestler
IMPACT Wrestling's Josh Alexander has challenged All Elite Wrestling to send their 'best' to face him at IMPACT Bound For Glory in October.
The reigning X-Division Champion successfully defended his title against AAA's Black Taurus at IMPACT Homecoming on Saturday and, speaking after the match, Alexander says he has now beaten the best that AAA, NJPW and IMPACT can offer.
The 34-year-old has now set his sights on AEW's elite performers at Bound For Glory.
Alexander said, in an interview with IMPACT Wrestling: "That is another title defence in the books here at IMPACT Homecoming. Black Taurus, you were AAA's best. If we look at my title reign, I've beaten someone from New Japan that's supposedly the best. Someone from AAA who's supposedly the best. I have run through the entire IMPACT X Division. So, maybe I need to look elsewhere.
"We're talking about all these different promotions coming in at Bound For Glory, well, AEW, yeah, you know who I'm talking about. I'm saying you give me your best and we will see which division matters most in this company."
After successfully defending his X Division Championship at Slammiversary in an Ultimate X match, Alexander had a run-in with IMPACT & AEW World Champion Kenny Omega on the July 22 episode of IMPACT Wrestling. The Walking Weapon was discussing his win when Omega bumped into him and took exception with Alexander calling himself the face of the company.
