It’s a way to set up the big one. While WWE and AEW get almost all of the wrestling attention in America, there are other promotions out there which are putting out a qualify product of their own. This would include Impact Wrestling, which is just over a month away from its biggest event of the year with Bound For Glory. The show needs a main event though and now they might have that covered.
This weekend at Impact Wrestling’s Victory Road event, Christian Cage defeated Ace Austin to retain the Impact Wrestling World Title. After the match was over, X-Division Champion Josh Alexander came out and said that he was using Option C to cash in his title for a shot at the World Title at Bound For Glory. This comes after Alexander had been teasing going after the title for a few weeks now.
Alexander is a main event star in the making. Check out what is waiting on Cage:
Opinion: This makes sense, as Impact Wrestling has done a great job of building up Alexander as someone who seemingly could not lose a match. That is how you go about making a star and that is what they have done here. I’m not sure I can imagine him winning the World Title, but I also can’t imagine him losing the title match either. That makes things very interesting and it took a lot of effort to make it work.
What do you think of the idea? How will the title match go? Let us know in the comment below.
