IMPACT Wrestling star Josh Alexander won the company’s X Division Championship at this past weekend’s Rebellion PPV event. The former member of The North tag team won the belt and has now said that he plans to honour the lineage of the division.
Speaking to Sports Illustrated, Alexander reflected on the Unbreakable 2005 X Division Title match. That Triple Threat match between Samoa Joe, AJ Styles and Christopher Daniels is regarded as one of the greatest ever, and Josh Alexander agrees.
‘That’s the greatest three-way match of all time,’ Alexander began. ‘The monkey flip where I caught TJ, they did that same spot. They did it straight into the rana, but I added a little flair by powering TJ, taking a kick, and then he rana’d me.”

‘When Samoa Joe came to the X-Division, that gave me the burning desire to be a pro wrestler” Alexander continued. “So having that throwback to the Unbreakable match, that was a way to pay respect to this division.”
‘This was my chance to establish myself in a division that revolutionized the pro wrestling business” Alexander noted. “AJ Styles, Low Ki, Amazing Red, Samoa Joe, all found their success in the X-Division, and they were always the match of the night. I would like to return the X-Division to its glory.”
‘This is the workhorse division. I’m going to bust my ass and try to steal every show I’m on” Josh Alexander concluded.
