Surprise surprise. There have been a lot of moves made from on almost every wrestling promotions roster in the last several months and all kinds of wrestlers have jumped from company to company. That has happened so often that it is almost strange to see someone stick around, but it does happen from time to time. It was the situation again this week when a big return went down.
The main event of this weekend’s Impact Wrestling Sacrifice event saw Moose successfully defend the World Title against Heath. After the match was over, Josh Alexander made his return to the company after three weeks away, announcing that he had signed a new long term contract with Impact Wrestling. This came after Alexander’s previous contract had expired and he had returned to Canada. Alexander also said that he would be challenging for the World Title at Rebellion on April 23.
Opinion: This is something that Impact Wrestling almost had to do as Alexander has been the centerpiece of the company for most of the last year. Having him lose the title just after winning it at Bound For Glory was hard enough, but suggesting that he would never get it back would be a bit too far. Impact needed an ace like Alexander back and now we should be in for a big title showdown at Rebellion.
What do you think of Alexander’s return? How will he do in Impact Wrestling? Let us know in the comments below.
